Reservation site claims "water available", and it was - from a spring-handled tap with no threads for a hose connection. So if you're in an RV, you are dry camping. But the ocean is nearby, so maybe that counts as water, too. Wind was screaming when we arrived, howled all night, and into the next day. We had reservations for two nights, but left after the first. Coin-op showers looked unappealing, restrooms filthy. We camped at Gaviota State Park in a Truck Camper.

This appears to be a day use area turned into a campground. Your site is actually a parking stall with another stall next to it for your tow vehicle or toad. There are two stalls immediately next to you. These stall are spread out in a circle around a dirt center island used by family tenters, which seems to dominate this park. It's overpriced and not really designed for RVs, especially anything over 25'. Would not go back at any price. We camped at Gaviota State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I stayed here overnight while traveling through. The campground is situated in a small bowl, surrounded on the sides by small hills. A sign on the kiosk warns you of potential high winds (and no refunds). When I was there, however, there was no wind. In fact, I was wishing for a small breeze, as it was quite warm. The hills seem to hold in the heat. The way to the beach is under the train trestle. This would by a nice place for families or groups to stay while you visit and do other activities in the area. The restrooms and showers were clean. The showers require quarters and have good, hot water. However, the fee is $45!! I just can not justify paying that price for a mostly basic campsite. While my stay there was adequate, I probably won't be back. We camped at Gaviota State Park in a Truck Camper.

Small, cozy campground close to the beach. The beach is a short walk under the railroad trestle and about 100 yards wide. Most of the sites are small. The campground was covered in a thin layer of dried mud, like it had been flooded recently. We had to kick someone out of our campsite when we arrived (this is happening all to frequently in CA state parks). The wind blew hard the whole time which is normal for this campground. There is even a sign at the front kiosk warning no refunds because of the wind. We camped at Gaviota State Park in a Travel Trailer.
