Site 36 is super spacious, and campsites 36-41 all face a lovely, open meadow.

If you don’t mind a short trip, the beach is a 10 minute jaunt by car away.

This is a family-friendly campground with some nice hiking trails (we went to the MASH site), a rock pool for easy access, and if you like rock climbing, you can also do that here. At night, I could hear cars from the main road from time to time but it wasn't too bothersome. This is a good place for beginner campers or for those who just prefer camping with reliable, clean facilities. They have flush toilets and coin-operated showers. My parents enjoyed it here.

Rangers here enforce the rules, so be sure to mind your p’s & q’s (i.e., no dogs, no fires, and obey all traffic laws).

So good to have a real decent area to get away to without driving too far. Everything around this campsite is beautiful and you cant beat the hikes and ocean a short distance away!

In general, fires aren’t allowed at the campground, but give the park a call (818-880-0367) ahead of time to make sure, as sometimes the wildfire threat drops and they are briefly allowed.

You don’t get a map with your entry to the park, but there ARE three places you can buy one (for about $3): At the entrance station (be sure to ask for it), at the Visitor Center (open only on weekends) or at the King Gillette Ranch (across the street).
