The closer you can get to the front of this campground the better, as that will ensure you are as close as can be to prime beachfront real estate and further away from the dull roar of Amtrak trains in the back. The campsites here have access to showers, restrooms, picnic tables, fire pits and last but not least...the beach! Doheny is a popular spot though, so beware that it can get crowded and be sure to claim your spot early.

The campsites view tends to be blocked by sand hills. The daily camp area is open from 6am to 10pm. You can back your rear wheels to the sand. In high tide, the sea come within 50 feet of your coach. Outstanding!

Toughest campground in the state to get into. Last minute cancels sometimes, but tight spots to get into for anything over 22'.

This campsite is right on the beach. Beautiful location, easy access to the dana point harbor. Would recommend bringing bikes.

Reserve early and enjoy truly camping on the sand. The shore break here is often brutal just in front of the campsites - like, so rough even adults would not enjoy it. But a short walk north takes you to a much calmer section of coastline. We rented a 4-person pedal-powered surrey and cruised around for a couple of hours one afternoon. We generally like to "get away" a bit more, but for beach camping these days, this is hard to beat.

Hi Hipcamers, we stayed here over the last winter holiday and I just booked again for this year as we have family in Dana Point. I have mixed feelings on this place and am surprised by the 96% rating to be honest. The biggest of all drawbacks is the constant sound of generators. ALL DAY ... and multiple sites, almost every other RV or trailer runs a generator. I don't need to rant on about them here, but seriously if you want to watch TV, stay at home!
No hookups for water or sewage either. Very basic camping. Beachfront is 10/10 unreal, the further back, not so nice.. I'd never stay here as a "destination" , just for traveling through.
