Highest site on Catalina

Black Jack is the highest campground on catalina. Solid views and sites. I'd recommend it only for backpackers. A bit of a hike from Avalon and Airport in the sky, so pack what you need.

Clean RV Park

RV Park that is kept very clean. Spots are close together unless you end up with a larger spot. During COVID you need to reserve your time at the pool. Make sure you know that you want to stay here for the full time because there is not a generous refund policy. We were hoping to change our plans due to the bad air quality and we could not get a refund. It does say that on their website, so it wasn’t a shock. The staff wasn’t super friendly.

Best Trans-Cat Stop

If you’re backpacking the Trans-Catalina trail, this is one of the best spots. Great views of the sunset, spaced out campsites with water spouts at each one and a 6 mile hike from airport in the sky. I recommend a site closer to the water. Make sure you have all your supplies with you.

Beautiful campground and beach!

Great veiws of the ocean! spacious, clean sites and facilities. Lovely bike/walking path. Be prepared for the mist and put your food away, so the little animals don’t eat it. Just a short distance from Haskell Beach and Old Town Goleta.

Peaceful campgrounds

This campground is so peaceful and clean!! The rangers are always making sure the restroom are stocked up with toilet paper and clean it daily! The water was so close to us too We stayed at site #59 and it was perfect! The view in the morning of the mountains ⛰ on the left and the perfect view of the sunsetting sunsets 🌇 on the city to the right. The blue jays and woodpeckers were delightful to watch all day! This campsite was perfect!

Nice campground close to OC

First come first serve, short drive from OC making it a nice option for a spontaneous getaway. Sites are pretty close to each other and you can hear some road noise from the 38. We had a great time and would come back for more.

Awesome spot so close to Home

Great spot to get away from the big city being only a 45min drive from the Downtown, couldn’t ask for more

Amazing Hike

Go behind campsite one and you will find a 6 mile hike in and out to two different waterfalls. Really fun and refreshing, limited shade in hike, so a dip at the end is so nice!

5Star Site-1 Star Trash

Beautiful spacious and private campgrounds. We had a campsite next to the creek and it was beautiful to see and listen to.

Cons: The incessant number of bugs during the day- flies, gnats, wasps- you name it. People dont pick up after themselves or dogs. We had an excess of flies due to the overwhelming number of poop puddles left throughout just our campsite alone- ppl left trash, human waste, vomit puddles. Other than that- the campgrounds are beautiful with the natural vegitation mix of what seem to be some sort of large succulent with an abundance of beautiful trees and shrubs. The creek or stream is a good size- its not just a tiny trickle- you can hear the running stream while you sleep. At night, we camped during a no fire period so no campfires or outdoor propane gas stove fires. We sat in the darkness and took in the stars with the sound of the creek below us. Campsite comes with a picnic table, a small fire pit ring and bbq grill. We camped with five little dogs- crowds usually give me anxiety for fear of them barking and disturbing the peace but the space between each campsite was ample and private enough to put my mind at ease.
