(Site 1)

Marla was very communicative and the directions were spot on. It is a primitive site (no toilet and no water) , but the campsites are set up for a more glamping experience, which was a little confusing. We left the “living room” and “dining room” alone and set up base at the far end with one picnic table and a flat patch for our tent. You are in Malibu, so houses will be in you siteline but site 1 has a beautiful view of the ocean and Catalina. My favorite part was watching the sunrise and seeing the clouds rolling over the water. It’s a good quick one nighter if you just want a small escape and enjoy being outside.
