For the road-trippers out there, Malibu might just be a glitzy stretch of scenic Highway 1. But for those looking for an epic camping experience complete with secret beaches, miles of hiking, and beautiful nature and wildlife, Malibu has a hidden world of outdoor adventure just under the surface. For easy access to Malibu's beaches, head to Leo Carillo or Point Mugu State Parks, where you can pitch the tent under some Sycamore trees and fall asleep the sound of nearby tides. For the best hiking, venture up into the Santa Monica Mountains. Wake up to the foggy solitude of these rocky hills and canyons, cool off in the refreshing creeks and falls, and drift off to sleep under the stars. For a little glamping (LA is only 30 miles away, after all) book a treehouse or spacious tent on one of Malibu's private lands and retreats, where you'll find all the beach vibes and natural serenity, and none of the crowds. No matter where you go, book early, as Malibu camping is a popular activity year round. There's plenty of peace and seclusion to be found in this California camping paradise, it might just take a little looking!

Malibu's geography and terrain make it particularly susceptible to natural disasters, including mudslides, landslides and flooding.

Why can't I book these on Hipcamp?
