Been car camping before but this was my first time backpacking - this site ROCKS! 6 mi mild to medium difficulty hike in. Toilets and running water, grills and picnic tables at the site. You can hear the ocean from the tent. No trees for hammocks or shade which might make it hot in the summer. Beach is a step away from the site and from there you can walk north to see some beautiful arches or south to alamere falls.
Family friendly and clean, lots of kids when we stayed. Campsites aren’t too close together but don’t expect too much privacy. Each spot has a picnic table, fire pit, and charcoal grill. Water spouts disbursed around. Bathroom flushed but sink water wasn’t running (there wasn’t soap anyways.)
You can vaguely hear the cars on the 1 but not too much. From our spot we could see the ocean though a space in the trees. We walked across the street to a nice hike around the beach that was beautiful.
