Stayed at the campground last weekend and had a GREAT time. This place is perfect. Park the car, throw out the tent and kick back 25 feet from the shore listening to the ocean crash onto the beach. Nice size lots. Picnic tables, fire pit and a guy who sells firewood by the ranger station. This place is perfect for... More

As a Montrealer, camping on the beach of the Pacific Ocean obviously sounds very inviting to me. However, I was very skeptical about it, because throughout the entire Pacific Coast, from Big Sur to LA, you can find several of this type of campgrounds. Due to the absolute lack of privacy of the campsites, I was not entirely convinced whether... More

We have been going to Thornhill Broom camping for years. It is primitive, but it is as close as you can get to "camping on the beach". The warm reception and treatment by rangers, etc., was wonderful. Definitely a beautiful location and you feel in touch with nature. Wonderful experience and the kids love it (what is better than a... More

I've always wanted to camp right on the beach & Thornehill Broome was it! There is nothing like being rocked to sleep by the sound of crashing waves. Thornehill Broome is very clean & quiet. I cannot wait to go back.

Walking along the shore at sunset being followed by a family of jumping dolphins and walking up to the sparkling Pacific, with seagulls overhead and seals playing in the waves - OH MALIBU. We reserved this spot 7 months in advance, because if you want to camp here in the summer, when it is an absolute dream land, you MUST.... More

Camping right on the beach; literally at the shoreline. Not far out of LA. It can get very windy, so make sure you really stake down your tent (we lost an enclosed pop up tent). A lot of people come here with RVs. This place can be very noisy, so keep that in mind, but it's absolutely worth it being... More

Great camping on the beach. Whales, seals, tons of seabirds. Fantastic hiking trails across the highway. Park your RV, trailer, or tent camp on the beach. Can be a bit windy. no hookups but there are a few water facets available to fill up your tanks. No assigned spots. Just find a place and enjoy. :) Great spot. $30 a... More

We rented an RV and took our 6 year old son camping for the first time. We stayed local so that we could experiment to see what the RV vacation would be like. We had 2 other RVs with us with friends (who own them) and suggested the location to us. It was a great choice for a first time.... More

Sleep right next to the waves!!!! I live only 40 minutes south of this beach at Point Mugu in Ventura County..and its awesome for a stay-cation. We went on a Thursday night in October and we were able to reserve a site no problem. The weekend is usually booked in advance. The best sites for tent are to the right... More

This is essentially group camping with a bunch of strangers. The campground is right on Pacific Coast Highway and you parallel park in basically what is a narrow parking lot. The sand is immediately to the campers right and the beach is just a stone's throw away. Most of the spaces don't grant direct access to the water as the... More
