We took our two kids (3 & 5) with us here for their first experience camping in a tent. For families, this is overall a great spot. The camping is easy to get to, and the Sycamore Canyon campground provides token operated showers, bathrooms, and a camp host selling firewood. It is an easy walk to the beach (accessible through...

Off the somewhat beaten path - this is a quieter, less crowded place to go. Cleaner and less hassle then farther down on the PCH. No lifeguards were we were at though. Although I think there are some on the next beach over - still considered state park. I wish we would have stayed here longer then heading down to... More

Peaceful beach and not as crazy as Carrillo. Has grills and picnic area right next to the beach. Great place to watch the waves, contemplate life and spend time with the fam.

Beautiful clean beach. Stopped here while traveling down the coast. It was early morning so there was no one else around. Very tranquil. Will definitely be back.

One of our favorite places to go to when in the Oxnard-Camarillo-Malibu area. Great ocean views, beaches, trails/parks, and even camping on the beach.

Get on the overlook rock, behind the fence is the place to be. It can be windy so be careful. Cooler than most spots, too. Great place to get sunset photos.

I came in an RV, it was ok but they're no hook ups. The campground is literally across the street from the beach, they don't have a cross walk though which is kinda weird so you basically have to book it across the street if you're walking. Not very safe. Other then that the bathrooms are probably the cleanest bathroom... More

The beach is quite quiet. The coast is short but nice. There is some trash but it is relatively clean. Nice place to sit and watch the beach.
