Drop some Sunset knowledge on us.
The campground is family friendly. We were 3 families and we shared a camp site and it was easy. The trail to the beach is close by. We were in site #79 and it was an easy access to the beach trail from there. Day time was a bit hot when we went - May. Overall amazing experience... Privacy is not very high here though.
These campgrounds are family friendly. Our campsite [#13] had a metal fire pit and the beautiful trees allowed for some privacy from all of the larger family groups nearby. The trail to Sunset Beach is easy to access & the beach lookout point is amazing!
History of Sunset State Beach
As with most of the surrounding area, the Ohlone lived along this beautiful coastal stretch. The land provided an abundance of food, including abalone, mussels and an assortment of sea mammals. Life was relatively peaceful until the mission system came into place. It was an event that would forever change the Ohlone’s culture.
