Camp at Point Mugu's Sycamore Canyon Campground
Rate this Adventure Los Angeles › Sycamore Canyon Campground
Added by Jamie Fleck
Camp just a short walk from the picturesque Point Mugu Beach, which offers rocky cliffs, driftwood, and plenty of places to relax and go fishing. Campsites have spectacular views of the night sky, as well as trees for hammocks.
The beach at Point Mugu State Park is just far away enough from the bustling town of Malibu and its popular beaches to feel like you are still secluded with nature. A great way to be close to the beach at Point Mugu State Park and access it easily whenever you want would be to camp at the Sycamore Canyon Campground at Point Mugu.
The Sycamore Canyon campground is located within a beautiful canyon and is just a short walk across the PCH to the beach parking lot. It contains over 40+ campsites for both tents and RVs and offers multiple restrooms with flushing toilets, showers, and large kitchen sinks to wash camping dishes and cutlery. Each campsite offers a picnic table and fire ring. We stayed at campsite #01 and it was just a short walk from the entrance and ranger station.
Camping at Sycamore Canyon campground gave us the convenience of being able to visit the beach before it got too crowded to go fishing and have fun in the water. We also got to relax on the famous sand slope about half a mile north of the campground on the PCH. The beach itself at Point Mugu is incredible, with its driftwood, rocky cliffs, and beautiful waters. The best time of the day is to visit it is around sunrise, which is do-able if you are camping at Sycamore Canyon campground.
