Enjoy the natural beauty and the artistic vibes of La Jolla from campsites up and down the San Diego coast.
The 7-mile coastline region of La Jolla is all about sun and surf. Part of the larger city of San Diego, La Jolla is one of the world's most popular beach destinations. No matter what month you show up, expect to have company! Temperatures average 60 to 70 degrees year-round, though it tends to get rainy in winter.
Surfing is a hugely popular pastime along the Pacific coast. Grab your board and head to La Jolla Shores to hit the water. If La Jolla's waves aren't challenging enough for you, try the nearby Black's Beach. Even tougher waves await at La Jolla Cove and Windansea; these are recommended for advanced shredders only.
If river adventure is your thing, try out La Jolla Indian Campground. Situated in Pauma Valley under Palomar Mountain, this campground has easy access to the San Luis Rey River. Tube down the river or take one of the camp's thrilling ziplines right over it! Pull out the tents at the end of the day for Riverside relaxation.
Ziplining not enough of a rush? Torrey Pines Gliderport might be what you're looking for. Here you can take hang gliding, skydiving and paragliding lessons.
You don't necessarily need to be a daredevil to enjoy La Jolla, though. If you enjoy just watching wildlife, head to Scripps Park in the summer. At the park's Children's Pool, you can get up close and personal with a seal colony! This park's also excellent for a sunny picnic with your camping crew.
