This the LA spot for camping right on the Beach & savoring the scene. Crowded on weekends, so either avoid that time or get there early. Also is dog friendly, so pack the pooch. If you're a camper, or a family camper, this is the place.

Love Leo Carrillo! My family has been camping here since before I was born. It's a beautiful campground with generous sized campsites as close to the beach as you can get without camping on the beach. Enjoy hiking in the canyons, biking around the campground, and searching the tide pools for sea creatures. Never know what we will find in... More

Love this beach!!! They allow dogs on the right side of the beach... The rocks are great to climb in. The waves were good. Have always liked this beach, and spent a great deal of time here when I lived in CA. There is day use and also camping use. The campgrounds are full most of the summer though. The... More

We arrived on a Sunday about 3pm and the line to get in was VERY long. Very nice little beach with locals and tourist alike. The rocks were really fun for the kids to climb on and we over all had a good time. The bathrooms were ok but no water running to the outside sinks or shower. The tide... More

I like this beach....it has nice views. You can camp here, but we often go just for the best. Typical of Southern Californium a beaches as far as it can be crowded....is a dog friendly beach.

Have stayed in campground several times and they are very consistent. The bathrooms are clean and the showers work! There is water about every third campsite as well as a fire-ring and wooden picnic table. Some sites have trees, but if you spend time on the beach - won't matter. Walking to the beach is not too bad - but... More

The beach was cool! The camp site we had kinda sucked we spent most of our time at another camp site but we had site 007. It's right across from the showers and restrooms and people just walked threw out site all weekend long just rude people! So if your staying there stay away from 007! But other than that... More

We went to this beach as it was dog friendly. It was an unsteady walk to get to the Pacific Ocean as the walk from the parking area is just sand. There wasn't a water spout to clean paws and feet. Since all I had was bottled water and wet wipes it was difficult to clean off the sand. A... More

Make sure you visit during low tide. There were volunteers on the beach making sure everyone didn't touch the wildlife. Hard and frustrating for the kids of course.
