The vibe at Sycamore Canyon Campground
Drop some Sycamore Canyon Campground knowledge on us.
I camped on the sand and regretted it, but camping on the other side seemed really nice. There is a hike you can take from the campground. It is hard to reserve the beach sites for a weekend, so think months and months ahead to get one.
Camped here on Memorial Day weekend. California State Parks made some sites available to late bookers, and I was able to book the week before the holiday. In Southern California, that's a real treat as most sites are booked well in advance. Another upside is the ability to burn a real campfire. The not-so-goods: the sites in this campground are close together and there was a lot of noise during the holiday weekend, even after hours. Still, it's a campground nestled between a beach and a mountain, so I chalked this up to sacrifices made for location.
This place is beautiful!
My wife and I stayed here for three days and absolutely loved it. If you’re looking for a close-to-beach camp area with various amenities, it is this one.
Some positive notes:
-Beautiful, close walk to the beach, no more then a 10 minute walk if you are the furthest camp site.
-the staff (camp host, park ranger, janitors) are all extremely friendly and knowledgeable.
-Clean showers(token accessible),bathrooms and running water.
-Hiking/bike trails are intermediate level but the view once you’re done is worth it!
-Sites come with picnic table, fire pit and 3+ parking spots
Some things to keep in mind:
-Does get windy
-Dogs have to be leashed, and they are not allowed on trail, but are allowed at the beach
