7 Reviews of Bolsa Chica State Beach
Close to OC comforts

Super convenient beach front parking with good restrooms and outdoor showers as well as a beach path perfect for walking, biking, rollerblading, etc. The beach is pretty wide here so may take a good minute to get to the ocean, but definitely worth it for the convenience with proximity to restaurants, stores, etc. There are even a few restaurants located on the beach path within the state beach parking area.

Glorified parking lot

This campground has a great location but has absolutely no privacy

Been there, done that!

Why do people pay $80+reservation fee to camp here? True, it is June the weather is typical June gloom, unable to see Catalina and the oil islands are not much of a view. I tried a hike at the Bolsa Chica Reserve, but when the police helicopter started flying above me, I decided to go back. We came here because we had business in the area and were able to pickup some cancellations for a few nights so we did not have to do the 405 commute. So that is one positive. Also, sites do have water and electricity. Negatives are:

  1. Cost $80/night plus reservation fees.
  2. Sites are very close together
  3. No table or fire ring at your site (May bring your own or use large ring on the beach) was too windy while we were here, anyway.
  4. Right on PCH, highway noise 5.premium sites are right on the bike path, no fence. parents watch your children closely! Not my idea of beach camping. Also, we avoid the 405 anyway, just saved ourselves some commute time by staying here.
Bolsa Chica SB Campground

Sites next to the beach. Spots are all concrete, very tight so you better be good at backing up your toys. Water and electric only but they do have a dump station. Overall, we enjoyed it very much.

Overall good

The campground is nice but it is a little pricey to get an RV spot.

Beach front campground in Southern California

Beachfront camping in the heart of southern California. Concrete/asphalt sites with water electric and dump station. Adjacent to PCH so road noise but steps away from great sand beaches. Easy access to Long Beach and not far from Disneyland so great when kids came in from out of state to visit. bike path runs by the site for miles in both directions. Campfire rings on the beach but not in the campground.

Great RV Camping

No tents but trailers and RV’s are welcome. Imagine camping at the beach with all the amenities and close to everything you’d want to do in SoCal. There are stores and restaurants nearby for those forgotten items or a quick meal. Super Mex has excellent Mexican food and a few storefronts down you’ll find sushi.
