Recent fires and winter storms hit this area hard, and they ate still cleaning up. But the sites have mostly been repaved and are clean. The power was out to part of the park (our bath/showers were still up and running), but we were part dry camping anyways, so all good.
There aren’t sewer or water hook ups, electrical only, but for me that’s perfectly fine for a long weekend or short week with 2 kids and 2 adults. They do have 3 dump stations, too, so that made it nice!
Short jaunt to the beach under the highway, small store with basics in camping area, and lots of walking trails around.
While the campground was quite busy and loud at times, the hike and bike area was rather quiet. Camp store for basic items. Squirrels are very aggressive and will eat your food if left unattended. Lots of shade trees.
I love this beach! It's a great place for surfing, whale watching in the spring, bird watching, and looking at seals. There's a little general store and nice bathrooms. Plus, tons of places where you feel like you can get away from the crowds.
We liked this campground.
Pros: Campsites were large and many had a decent amount of privacy. Try an pick one up against the mountain so there are no people behind you. An easy walk to a beautiful Malibu beach is always a plus. There is a separate beach for dogs, a major reason we’ll be back. Water and bathrooms close. Showers hot. Scenery is great, both mountains and beach to gaze. We went during the week so campground wasn’t full but I would have liked it if it was full
Cons: a bit pricy at $60 a night for an RV electric only site. Bathrooms could use a facelift. Our site was great except for some empty beer cans and broken glass here and there.
neither pro nor con: no cell phone service in the campground. About 10-15 minutes away from gas and other stores. The little general store has limited hours, so dont rely on having a close place to get things you forgot.
Great spot on the Malibu-ventura border. A stones throw from a great point surf break and great tide pools! The getty villa is right around the corner too! Tokens for the showers…so prepare for that. Little store inside the campground will help with anything you might have forgot!
