Description

Surf spot. Great beach. Packed and super popular. We lucked out with a last spot but paid a crazy $60/night (long, tiring day). Road and train traffic.

Definitely try to make reservations as very rarely are there spots available during the warmer months! We got the last spot two weeks in advance and it was right near the road, glad our van is really well insulated or it would’ve kept us up all night! Pretty nice campground especially if you’re surfing, and supposedly there’s dog friendly beach access by tower 16 but that whole area is closed off for construction? The coin operated showers are a little disappointing given how expensive this place is.

Cliff-top campground with beach access. Very difficult to book ahead. Check with the attendant to see if there will be any walk-ups for the next day. Get there SUPER early. The office opens at 8:15am but there are people waiting as early as 5/5:30. When it opens at 8:15, they write down who was first, but you’ll need to stay/come back at 9:15am in order to actually make the reservation. $35 for inland (no hookups) and $50 for ocean (no hookups). Unfortunately there were no non-hookup sites so we had to pay $60 for a site with hookups, even tho we didn’t need it.

$35 for inland and $50 for ocean side non-hookup sites. Less noisy than Carlsbad because the interstate is farther away. Good facilities, including dumpstation and closer to shops and restaurants.
