8 Reviews of Ocean Cove Store and Campground
Ocean Cove is one of our favorites

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.

Amazing view

I really liked this campground, took my family their very family friendly and we just loved the ocean view

Love this campground

Always windy. Great scenery, and many of the tent sites are tucked away in little nooks and crannies for privacy if you don’t want the more open outer ring sites.


We camped right on an ocean cliff in October of 2019 and it was the most beautiful campsite we’ve ever stayed at! Coin operated showers were adequate. Port-a-potties were also fine. Campsites are far enough a part with picnic tables and a fire ring.

Pretty views overlooking the ocean(ish) without any luxuries

Easy stop next to Point Arena lighthouse.$28 per night. Has porta potties for bathrooms. Not a lot of privacy but it is overlooking the ocean. 

It was a last minute late night stop and I would use it as a overnight but not an extended trip. We didn’t spend any time there outside of sleeping and visiting the lighthouse.

Beautiful location

We’ve been here twice now, the second time we brought our dog. Pro/con: it’s first come first serve. This works for us because we usually decide to go camping last minute, and the places you can book online are all booked up. This way we can get a head start on Friday and get a good spot before evening. It doesn’t have bathrooms, but it’s fine, they have port a potties set up. The spots are grassy and over half the campground has ocean views. We like the area set back over the hill and there’s no breeze at all and super quiet and spacious. There’s a boat launch and a nice trail that goes along the sea cliffs. One of my favorite campgrounds on the coast


Great campsite! Right on the bluffs with the ocean beating on the rocks below you. Four large group sites with 70+ first come first serve sites. Boat access and cleaning station for fishermen. Absolutely no cell reception which is fantastic!

First to Review
The best dry camping in California

I have been camping here for 32 years, it’s a private campground very clean and beautiful. There are portapotties that are cleaned often, hot showers that cost money and if you have a boat you can launch from there. The campsites are big and it’s not usually full, spots are first come first serve unless you are doing a large group. There are many coves or inlets you can climb down into to look at tide pools. If you haven’t been here you should go it’s beautiful!
