Great location next to the pier with breath taking views of the ocean and surf. Only available during the fall, winter, and spring. Reservations are mail in, and first come first served. Plenty of space between sites and pretty level sites. You are camping in a parking lot with water and electric. There is one dump station with easy access. We plan to return in the spring. We camped at Sunset Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fantastic beachfront camping which is basically a parking lot with hookups. The pull-through sites are nice and wide (plenty of room for big rigs) which is hard to come by at most state beach campgrounds. The location is perfect and is within easy walking distance of the pier and downtown. The doggy beach is about a 1 mile walk. Good restaurants, bars and shopping in the area. I didn't rate a 10 due to no showers, sewer or Wi-Fi. We camped at Sunset Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beach and ocean-front camping in a parking lot. The fantastic ocean view can be blocked unless parked in the front row. Reservations by mail only, well in advance (for weekends). Closed during the summer and during special events. Bicycle rentals are nearby and several restaurants and shops are nearby. The campground is very close to the long pier. Handicapped rate is $50 a night, regularly $60 a night. Dump station has 2 lanes and gets busy at checkout time. The pull-through sites are roomy. It can get a little rowdy. Bikes and pets allowed on the beach boardwalk. There is a dog beach in the area but not really within walking distance. Close to Southern California attractions. Fires are allowed in fire rings on the beach. We will be back as soon as we can get reservations in the fall. We camped at Sunset Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sunset Vista RV Park is owned and operated by the City of Huntington Beach. It is a fun place with many activities. It is located on one of the nicest beaches in California. It is located right on the same beach that the popular OP Pro surf contest is located. It is near one of the longest piers in the US. There is a nice downtown area nearby with something for all ages. There are bicycle and pedals cars for multiple riders to ride on the very nice beachwalk. There are surfboard, bodyboard, and wetsuit rentals too. Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm are 20 to 30 minutes away. We camped here in our toy hauler in December of 2005. The sites are large, flat, and clean. The only thing I didn't like was there was no shade, but that is why we have our awning. The kids (both 13 years old) had a blast with all the activities. Riding bikes, playing in the sand and waves (too cold for me and mom, eating at Ruby's (hamburger joint) on the end of the pier, and getting icecream in the downtown area. The campground is not the quietest I have stayed at, as you could hear the traffic on Pacific Coast Highway nearby, but it was not that bad. The campground is only open from October 1 through May 31, I suspect because the city needs the parking for summertime. There are not individual sewer hookups, but there is a nicely setup dump station. This is not a quiet wilderness type campground. It is a very fun location for the family so I rated it as a 10 because of what it is. It is not the cheapest, but we will definitely be going back in the near future.
