One of the few places in Southern California to camp on thebeach

This campground is at the edge of the Dana Point Harbor.  The sites are small, but many of them are right on the beach.  All sites have easy access to the beach.  It is easy to ride your bike to the harbor or up the river trail from this campground.  The harbor is walking distance from the campground.  It is difficult to get a spot here, usually we have been able to grab a spot when there have been a few days of rain and people will tend to cancel their spots.

Beachfront camping

Beautiful beachfront camping steps from the sand. Dry camping with a dump station available. Great sunsets and beautiful sand.

Easy and beautiful car camping on the beach

This campground is sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean and some active train tracks. But it's quite possibly the most beautiful yet easiest camping you'll do, shy of setting up a tent in your yard.

We love how easy it is to camp so close to the city (in case you forget anything or don't want to do the camo cooking thing) and be right on the sand overlooking and listening to the Pacific.

Sights are sand and close to each other but we've always enjoyed our stays here.

Close to beach but overcrowded.

Great location on the beach but very crowded and campsites stacked on top of each other. No privacy from neighbors. Freight train passes by often and loudly. Waves break very shallow and limit activities in the water.

Right on the sand

I love this park because you are right on the sand!

Pretty Beach

The beach is very pretty. The campground was quiet enough, though the spaces are very close together with little to no privacy in between campsites. I wouldn’t go out of my way to stay there again, but it is fine for a night when heading to or from somewhere.

very close sites

location is great. plenty of ‘beach’ , before you get to the beach. my only real complaInt, Is that the sites are super close to one another, and as someone who likes to get up early, the noise from neighboring camps , was distracting and made it difficult to fall asleep or enjoy my own music.

Clean and friendly

My grandparents where coming through town to see my husband and me and everyone was amazing and helped them out. The campgrounds where clean and you could smell the bonfires each night

Excenllent Beach Camping

Excellent beach camping and tent friendly. plenty of shade and nearby restaurants and shops. Definitely recommend this location.

Great Beachfront Camping

This is a great campground for beachfront camping. But if you want a spot on the beach plan to book 6 months in advance. We were lucky enough to get a spot on the beach last minute, but it was in january and a bit chilly at night. Bathrooms are clean and showers are great-large and a lot of room to move around. Can’t wait to go again!
