Malibu Lagoon State Beach Campground offers 57 campsites, half of which are designated to just tent camping. All the normal amenities are available, but be aware that the campground is actually a 10 minute trip by car to the beach. Don’t get too down, though, as the campground is popular and does a good job of keeping sites secluded and staying within the wilderness in the area. Unfortunately, wood fires are not allowed (nor are visitors under 18 without parents or written consent).

Campgrounds at Malibu Creek State Park are closed until further notice due to an ongoing investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. To ensure public safety, all camping reservations for the park have been cancelled until the campground reopens. Reservation holders are being contacted and refunds will be provided. Day-use areas at the park will remain open. California State Parks apologizes for the inconvenience. However, the safety of our park visitors is our top priority. California State Parks issued a statement on the incident on Monday, June 25.

This campground DOES exist but it's in MALIBU CREEK STATE PARK at Malibu Canyon Road & Mulholland Hwy.
Turn up from PCH at Pepperdine University and it's about 6 miles inland. The tv series M*A*S*H was shot in the park which used to be 20th Century Fox's 'back lot'.

This doesn't exist.
Via this recommendation page my friends and I drove up only to find that there aren't even camp grounds here.

So yeah, don't go here unless you want to not camp.
