Channel Islands is a very nice place to go if you love camping.You have a lot of activities to do during the day , hiking, riding , kayaking .
And for sure is a good place to take pictures
To get there you just need to get a boat from Ventura, the trip just take an hour. You need to pack food and water.
The place has amazing views , you just need to hike and you get the most beautiful scenes.
Weather is nice during the summer, I don't recommend during fall, it could be very windy.
