Great surf, close to good coffee and groceries. Fills up fast! You can hear the train and highway if you're not on beachfront campsite.

This campground is in an urban area, built on a strip of land between Highway 101 and the Ocean. There is a high amount of noise here from the surf, traffic or the train cruising by. That being said all the amenities of town are right outside the gate. Coffee shops, many eateries and a market are within walking distance. The bus line stops outside the gate and 2 miles away in Solana Beach is a train station for the Coaster Line that provides transportation to and from San Diego.
The campground itself is well laid out and although showing signs of wear is clean and maintained. Beach access is easy and the scene there is always active. You’re on the beach in CA, and that is a good thing.

Easy access, but not for those that want to get away from it all! Great starter camping spot for kids or folks who need amenities nearby.

overlooks the ocean from a bluff, you need to be able to descend a large flight of stairs to get to the beach. campsites are pretty close together.

Straight up surf camp along PCH. It's an excuse to roll out of your tent or camper into the water. Not really camping, but worth it to get out of the house and be the first one in the line up.

I've been camping here since I was 10 (now 36 sharing it with my growing family) It's the best!!! kids look forward to it every year and everyone camping is a micro community all there for the same reason. A very family friendly place. plus a couple standout surf spots nearby.
