Even though the campsites are not on the beach the campground is well within walking distance to it. The beach was mostly sandy but strewn with rocks as well. If you have a dog the camp is dog friendly and there is a dog beach as well. Dogs must ALWAYS be on a leash in the campground and beach. The... More

Have been many times, love this campground...clean...management makes sure rules are followed....clean restrooms and showers. Nice walk or bike ride to the beach. There is a small camp store there but the park is close by grocery stores as well.

Stayed in Space #21 week after Memorial Day. This is an excellent spot - close to restrooms/showers, camp store and a short, flat stroll to the beach. The spot is big and level with plenty of shade from lovely old trees. Fresh water spigot on the space was really handy. Cooked steaks and a pork tenderloin roast on the fire... More

Wanted to see the famous Malibu and was delighted to find a dog beach too. Memorial weekend may not be the best day but off we went. 3.5 hr drive to a 2 hr away location. 1) bring stuff to do in car and a full gas tank. Traffic was back logged. Once on PCH, Pacific Coast Hwy, the drive... More

Situated just a few miles from Malibu, the setting was beautiful, just across the street from the beach. Although a bit pricey to camp, we really enjoyed the stay. The facilities were adequate. The camp store was nice to have, and the items over all were well priced!

We staying here July 2013 and were very disappointed indeed. As with another reviewer, we booked online and reserved a spot for a 30ft RV - our site was small and getting in was a challenge. Sites were overrun with tents and cars clogging up the main routes in and out of the campsite (people had to move their cars... More

I will agree with other reviewers - $47 a night without hook-ups is expensive, however, the proximity to the beach is worth it! Sites are large, shaded and close to running water. They all have picnic tables and a fire ring. This place was great! You felt like you were so much further away from the hustle and bustle that... More

Large sites, picknick table, firepit, clean restrooms, close to the beach but waaaaaaay to expensive. Expect a National Park type campsite, only four (!!) times the bucks! We paid 48$ for one night. Also, we had some serious problems with small ants but it could be we just had some bad luck. For the money, you should be able to... More

This is a great camping spot for tent camping, but because it is an "older" campsite, it is not suitable for larger trailers or RVs. Their was no room to easily back into our campsite which I had reserved over the internet. We did not think we could make it, but after several attempts, we did get the 30' trailer... More

Our site was large with good shade from trees. The walk to the beach is only about 1 mile, a little farther to the dog-friendly beach. Picnic table & firepit provided. Friendly employees. No highway noise (rare for So-Cal beach camping). Starbucks is 4 miles away.
