This review is for Sycamore Canyon Beach located in Pt. Mugu State Park (which cover 14,000 square miles of land). Sycamore Canyon Beach entrance is off PCH on the ocean side (east, land side entrance is to the campgrounds). Parking lot fee $12. The beach here is quite natural, rather small and missing the pristine sand that you'll find farther... More

Went to spend 1 night in this campground. The price was expensive ($45 per night + $8 booking fee) without being able to reserve an actual spot so you were assigned one on entry. After entering, we were assigned space 3 which was really close to the ones beside us. In fact It was only about 5 feet or so... More

Freezing cold water, plain beach with nothing to do around just relax and climb some rocks, too dangerous to swim in, impossible to snorkel, no shade at all don't expect to swim in beautiful crystal clear blue warm water and see lots of colorful fish because this is not Mexico. Probably a good fishing spot since we saw a family... More

Great place for hiking......the trail going to the mountain is rather steep, but the views from there make it well worth it! Be aware, this beach can get crowded as well.

Great hike for a morning or afternoon. There is a pretty steep trail going up the mountain. Once you are up there you get rewarded with stunning scenery and landscape. Make sure you hike the plateau as well (Valley loop trail). We had it all to ourselves. You get to experience nature at its best. The smell of the wildflowers... More

Good views for a back to nature person. If the ocean and sand is your thing, you will like this place. It can get very crowded.

One of our best stops on the side of Pacific Coast Highway was the Point Mugu rocks. There weren't many places to park here, but it was free. We didn't go into the state park because of the $12 parking fee since we didn't have a lot of time to spend there. We just stopped long enough to take pictures... More

Lots of hiking trails, hills, flowers in spring, occasional ponds, growing back well after the fires 2 years ago, go the top of Mt Mugu and sign the register!

We hiked the scenic and overlook trail starting at the campground. The views of the mountains and the ocean are amazing. The hike takes a couple hours and is around 3 miles in total.
