With 25 campsites, Anacapa campground is the smallest of Carpinteria’s camping options. There are no beachfront sites, but it’s still an amazing Carpinteria camping getaway. After a long day in the sun, put your site’s fire ring and picnic table to use and whip up a meal. If you’re feeling lazy, grab a bite to eat nearby in town. But don’t forget to rinse off first in Anacapa’s coin-operated showers. Tents, RVs, and trailers are welcome, but hookups aren’t available.

The "scene" here is super cool. Brewery, nacho stands, Chumash theme playground, volleyball, large grass park for the dog, beautiful beach; then walk back to your camp=AWESOME!
