The vibe at Sycamore Canyon Campground
Drop some Sycamore Canyon Campground knowledge on us.
Campground is very pretty and clean. Avoid weekends if you are looking for quiet. Audience is varied: Hikers. Families. Mountain Bikers. Sunset Hike: Scenic Trail (2 mile loop). Fantastic ocean views. Enjoy!
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
