This is an older park which is just a little shabby, but if you can get one of the ocean front sites. The views are spectacular. Many of the sites are so wide you can park your rig sideways or at an angle to the ocean. The sites are literally right on the edge of the bluff with a 180 degree ocean view right outside your door! This campground gets busy on weekends in the winter with families and groups of surfers, but it was not very noisy and never felt very congested because of the size of the sites and the openness on the ocean side. I imagine it is full all summer long. The sound of the ocean drowned out traffic and generator noise pretty well. I would return here in a heartbeat, but only on the ocean side. If I were on the other side of the road, I would rate it about a 6. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of our favorite state beaches, primarily due to the ocean views. The ocean side sites are much more desirable than the sites that back up to the road. Navigating the narrow roads can be challenging, so drive slow through the campground due to many children running around. It really could use the sewer dumps relocated to a not so congested area, but that would be difficult. I will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for one night; this state beach is very popular, obtaining a site can be challenging. I booked through reserveamerica.com. There is a $2 savings for seniors. There are only about six sites that have hookups,water, sewer, currently no electric. The rest are dry camping. We noticed three sets of stairs that give access to the beach. There is a small general store and concession stand at the entrance. Make sure you obtain some shower tokens at the ranger station. You get two tokens for a dollar; a token is good for a three minute shower. The WIFI availability is within 150 feet of campground office. I didn't try it though for connecting, etc. The park only has two dump stations, which for a park of this size would be adequate if there was a waiting area available without blocking traffic. We enjoyed our stay and will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
