We wanted to stop here based on previous reviews but it was unfortunately closed
We stayed here for a night at the tail end of a December California adventure before flying out of SFO the next day. We wanted to get close enough to the city that the morning drive in wouldn’t be too taxing, while also sleeping beachside one last night. This location accomplished the task and made for an interesting close to a fairly remote trip. We camped on the jetty facing the water, so the view helped. But sites are very close and very packed in. With little to no cover from plant life, you will want to be prepared to be seen at all times. Benefit—gentle dunes covered in succulents lead the way to the waterside where there’s a long stretch for walking punctuated with benches. And if you’re able to get to them at night, the dunes offer a fairly beautiful view of the stars. Coin operated showers connected openly to the restrooms, plenty of nearby towns for supplies, group fire pit areas near the restrooms and host—don’t forget to reserve in advance and expect a line during the check in process
Ocean Cove is a private campground right off Highway one. The owners are very friendly and helpful and they also own the grocery store across from the campsites. The prices are good and it is very family friendly (including dogs). We try to get here once a year if possible. The views of the Pacific from the bluffs are just beautiful, and there are plenty of places to explore a short distance from the campgrounds. There are port-a-potties, coin operated showers, boat launch, fish cleaning station and potable water available. Tent, Trailer, or RV are welcome here.
This campground needs an upgrade badly and the Coastal Commission has denied all their requests for over 10 years now. The huge camping fees go to pay their legal fees to fight the Coastal Commission and not to the services they provide. You don’t get any hookups at all. So sad what this government appointed commission is doing to this family owned campground. I feel really bad for them. I hope they sort it all out soon because they have a fantastic location.
We love camping here last minute, or if we want to go camping last minute and don't feel like driving far. There are lots of trees, and it is usually pretty quiet. The hike around the lake is pretty substantial if you are looking for some good exercise. The first time we went, there were a ton of wild turkeys! Also, you can still get cell service there.
Ive been to this campground twice. Both times were fairly full, but never totally full. You can make a reservation, but you cant pick your spot until you get there. Better to get there on the early side. Some sites aren't great, so you dont want to be stuck with those! There were sites with decent shade, and I liked there was a hiking trail down to the lake. Also a pro that it isnt too far out of the bay area.
Such a quiet campground. Sites are spaced apart. Great big trees that sing in the wind. This park is not an easy drive to get to from anywhere. Maybe that is why it is so quiet. Must stay at least 3 nights to rationalize that drive. Nice bluff trails, picnic sites and the Rhododendron Preserve has an easy hike. We would like to return again.
