This primitive campground is for RVs with varied terrain. Reservations are only available during the summer and sites, are first come first serve during off-seasons. There are no amenities here, but you can head up to the Ventura Group Campground 2 miles up for restrooms and water. This campground, however, is definitely an ideal spot for those with RVs to enjoy the beach.

A springtime stay here was eerie and atmospheric. The campground stretches along a length of coast. If you're in a camper or an RV, you can get more secluded spots by driving down the coast away from the main campground. You lose out on amenities and facilities this way, but you get some space to yourself.
