Reviews

An excellent state beach to camp at. Beautiful views and hiking trails.

I've been going camping at El Capitan State beach for as long as I can remember. What started out as a simple camping trip when I was little kid turned into an annual family tradition. Clean bathrooms, well-maintained campgrounds, and easy access to the beach, tide pools, and biking trails. Perfect for tent camping with fantastic summer weather due to the glorious ocean breeze. (Note: many campsites are located by a train track so the crossing can be noisy at night.)

The camp ground is well maintained, and with the beach only a 10 minute walk away it's perfect! showers and restrooms all over, A fun little tradition at this campground is if you buy one of their coffee mugs at El Capitan canyon you get free coffee all day long, who wouldn't want that!!! Making reservations on that either you can make them about 2 to 3 months out of your trip. As far as activities go there's lots of hiking and walking, there is also a café where you can get breakfast lunch and dinners the food is really good! Overall this campground is perfect to go for tent camping and RV, I recommend tent camping it's just more fun and rugged!
