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.
