Ocean Mesa Campground at El Capitan is THE premier campground on the beautiful California Central Coast. Located just 20 minutes north of downtown Santa Barbara, Ocean Mesa is surrounded by Los Padres National Forest above the magnificent Pacific Ocean.
Ocean Mesa offers the best of modern camping life including a heated pool and spa, laundry facilities, and convenience store. The Mesa is also wired for internet use and T.V. so you never have to feel too disconnected from life at home.
The prices are expensive, and the spots are a little tight, and the beach is kinda far. Other then that it’s beautiful!
Beautiful and well kept with a cool trail behind with nice views
Great place for kids and families. Went during the week so wasn’t too crazy packed. They have a pool, playground, 24 hour bathroom and showers included with your stay. Also have a small restaurant in case you don’t feel like cooking. They have bike rentals that I believe are free to use. We had a great time and had a nice hike down to El Capitan beach with the kids where they enjoyed themselves. Overall highly recommend this place and will be returning.
Leaving Ocean Mesa and can’t wait to go back. Clean facility. Heated pool and jacuzzi. Concrete pads and lots of trees. Connected to El Cap Canyon that has cabins and yurts. A really great store there with events like wine tasting and concerts. Hiking trails are also connected to the campground. Just a mile from a great beach with lots of parking. No ocean view but the amenities makeup for that.
Private campground with jacuzzi and pool they keep clean, decent hiking trails off the back and a grassy area to chill. Short walk to beach (10-15 min) but easy place to camp.
