2 Parks near Malibu, California
Jul 2013 - $23.00
A typical state beach campground. Very busy at this time due to summer vacation. Surrounding landscape scenery is very nice with lots of large trees and shrubs. Beach access is easy especially if you're camped at the front of the park. Could be a long walk if you're in the back. Thought it would also be quieter in the back due to less pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Many choices for beach areas depending on what your pleasure may be. Great area for tide pooling as it is very close. - User1132

Let's see, what do we have here - dusty sites, quite some trash all around the park, no water hookups, no electricity, showers you have,to pay for additionally, and all that for 45 bucks. To me, that's kind of rip offish. I won't stay here again. - Chbronson

This is a decent state park. The sites do have a decent amount of space between them. All are listed as 31' long but the actual pavement is only ~20. Some have bushes and trees right next to the pad preventing extension of slide outs. Also, some have a fence/hillside close to the rear of the site that limits the length of the RV that will fit. To be safe, check the campsite photos website to make sure you can fit. There is another beach that is much nicer than the main beach. Follow the road under the bridge to the parking lot. Dogs are also allowed on this beach since it is technically not part of the state park. This is one of the closest state beach campgrounds to LA, so many of the sites are packed with way more than 8 people per site. - tsparky

It is a nice RV park, but that's all and that does not justify the high price. Staff is friendly, although 2 minutes after check-out time they already knocked our door. All our slides were already in, all connections already put away. So it showed we were about to leave.
The store does have your basic needs if you run short in your chiller and if you spend more per night you will have a great sea view.
This RV is NOT at the beach, the CA-1 runs in between. When you leave you cannot exit the park going to Santa Monica, so it takes miles before you can turn. - Palazzo fan

We have a 32' RV. We stayed here for 6 nights and got a fair weekly rate. It was a great deal because we were there off-peak. Had water and electric only, sewage would have been nice for the full time but the only full hook ups available were the water view sites ($90/night). Not worth it. We liked our mountain view site better than the water views on the edge. We were more protected from the wind and right next to the shower house, so the wifi worked really well for us. Windy mostly during the day (typical ocean breezes), at night pretty calm. Our site was a little small for our trailer but we worked it out. At one point we put up a canopy that went off of our designated area. Mgmt was nice and didn't say anything mid-week. On the weekend, they very very nicely asked us to take it down as it was in a public walkway. No big deal. We understood and appreciated how nice they were about it in general. Site was basic, picnic table a BBQ, no fire pit, gravel. No fires were allowed but the grill stands are positioned so you are cooking and looking out at the ocean below. Park had beautiful views all around and was and ideal location for the Malibu area. Everyone was nice. The bathrooms are a little old but reasonably clean. We loved it here and hope to stay here again. Okay to not pay top dollar for the water view sites. The "mountain view" sites still face the water with water views and get less wind. - PNW77

We camped here in a tent. The tent section is walk-in and there is no electricity or water at the sites--only at the bathhouse. The sites are relatively flat but are made of a very thin layer of crushed rock/dirt and so are very hard. You will definitely want to bring a thick pad or an air mattress. The view from the tent sites is absolutely stunning, and is the only reason we paid so much to camp here. It was very over-priced for the amenities provided. - NomadFamily
