The Pacific isn’t the only aquatic attraction in the Santa Barbara area. Mere steps from the Santa Ynez River, Sage Hill Campground offers a quiet alternative to coastal camping. Just 30 minutes north of Santa Barbara, this flat campground affords fishermen prime pickings: carp, bluegill, and catfish make their home in these waters, while the occasional directionally challenged bass finds its way into the river from Cachuma Lake, about 7 miles west. Hikers and equestrians will find something to love at Sage Hill Campground, too: The Aliso Canyon Trail begins here and leads to the 18-mile Santa Cruz Trail. On hot summer days, be sure to snag one of the sites that sits beneath the area’s large oak trees.

Sage Hill offers a good/accessible space for larger group events -- more picnic tables and spit barbecues.

We camped here with my entire 6th grade class one year! I remember spending hours catching frogs in the river - such a fun spot for kids! But, in the late spring when we went, it was hot and there were a lot of bugs so bring repellent!
