“Bahia Azul Campsite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

The campsite is expensive, but well worth the price if you can rally enough people to fill it. Comes with firepit, Weber gas grille, semi private beach, 4 kayaks, two scenic balconies and multiple areas to set up tents.

A perfect place to bring a group that's not experienced with camping, as you're not exactly roughing it. Secluded from the rest of the campsites for additional privacy, but close to the main village where there are showers, bar/restaurant and the dive/recreation center.

“They are conflicted, dog friendly or not?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

On the one hand they have a dog friendly policy letting the dogs on the beach and they have a dog show once a year that is very popular but there are signs all over "no dogs" it's seems the catalina Island Co can not figure out if they are dog friendly?

As a boater I'm confused why they offered a reservation system for the last two years and then change back to first-come, this really really makes it difficult if you trying to plan ahead at all.

Last this being the only boating location on the West Coast of California, a destination with facilities mooring, they have captive audience and it feels that way sometimes. they could make a much bigger effort with offering services and upgrading the facilities and aesthetically it really looks like a trailer camp it doesn't seem like they're trying very hard.

On the plus side food aok and the staff is very very helpful and accommodating.

Note: It is illegal to count dogs and outdoor patios in the County of Los Angeles as of last year so they cannot make the argument anymore that was their position previously it's an elected decision by management and ownership to up be dog friendly or not.

“A Bad End to a Good Time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Great stay until we wanted to get on the boat home. We stood a little out of line and a harbor department employee scolded us. When one of our party questioned her, she told us she was off duty and called the Sheriff on us. We tried to communicate with a superior and they refused to find us anyone to communicate our concerns to. Beautiful place horribly managed.

“Sailing to Two Harbors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

Two Harbors is a great place for a weekend trip. Its mostly undeveloped, but there is are a couple places to eat and a bar with a DJ and dancing that attracts everyone on Friday and Saturday. You can camp, but why not just charter and boat with some friends and sleep aboard. You can fill you days with swimming, snorkeling, and hiking.

“Highlight of My Year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Every year I come to Two Harbors with a group of my closest friends and it is hands down my favorite memory. You feel as though you're in the Mediterranean with the perfect amount of laid back and non-business without leaving behind the comfort of civilization. Much better than the crowded and over rated Avalon. Could easily stay my entire summer here.
