We camped here once in May; although the best time to go is in the later summer-fall for the warmest weather. All the campsites are parallel to the beach but on a busy road. We had a dog and newly walking baby with us, so we REALLY had to keep an eye on both of them. We brought little baby gates which helped. The only way to get down to the beach is to walk down the big rocks. Some sites have a very easy access to the beach and some not so much. You're also a few miles from downtown Ventura for a night out and live music.
This is one of our favorite spots, incredible ocean views and 1 1/2 mile dog friendly beach. Each site, along old PCH, is 45' long. Spots along the seawall can accommodate bigger rigs. Added bonus @ nearby Hobson Beach is their great pizza & calzone. At the southern end is Faria Beach with excellent homemade coffee cake. Our dog Libbi's favorite camping spot.
Ok, freeway noise aside, it’s a great stop.
Haven’t been since it became part of the reservation system, but another go to place. Not the best place for young kids, as it is too scary being right off the highway in my opinion. Just stay down on the beach (break water rocks provide a barrier if you have kids).
Awesome view!!! Park against the water where you can hear the waves all day and night. We have an great time here. No hookups so be prepared
Stayed here a week with views of the Channel Islands, seals, sea lions, whales, and dolphins. Along frontage road next to US 1/101 outside Ventura. No hook ups but trucks come by offering sewer/ water services. Wood trucks also come by. First come first served $32 per night. Beach just feet away and I had seals right below my rig.
127 Slanted or parallel dry camp asphalt spots located along the Pacific Ocean and PCH approx 8 miles north of Ventura and 20 miles south of Santa Barbara off the Seaside Exit. All spots are on first serve basis. You pay via cash or check to the host that will come to your site. When you arrive get a payment envelope at a pay stand and fill out and put the form on your rig or tow vehicle. (security is around all night so you can’t try to camp for free). The next morning a host will come to you to collect payment. 50% chance you will have marine layer. But if you love the sound of waves crashing and seagulls then it’s perfect! No amenities besides trash cans. Short drive or bike to Faria Beach that has a delicious cafe.Quiet time is 9pm-7am of which no generators can be used.
