We stayed for 2 nights at site 40. Pros: Most sites are flat and spacious compared to other state campgrounds. Beautiful views overlooking the bluffs. Staff is polite. Pet friendly. Pull thru sites. Cons: Only access to beach is a long walk down a very steep hill, definitely kid friendly. Very little shade. No campground store (definitely didn't see one if there was). Most sites are dirt, concrete and dead grass. Survey says: overall rating of 6.8/10. We camped at San Clemente State Beach in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This campground has two areas, the full hookup area (where the sites are quite close together with little privacy or space) and the no hookup area (which has more room between sites and is closer to the ocean). We really liked being able to walk on the coast path to the pier (about a mile). If I were to stay here again, I would probably opt to take a site in the lower section without hookups; especially, if I could get one of the sites right on the bluff overlooking the ocean. All-in-all a very decent place if you want to be on the OC coast. We camped at San Clemente State Beach in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Nice pull-through with full hook ups. Beach is just a short walk away. Very nice wide sites with table & fire ring. Only drawback is that there is absolutely no grass, no wood chips, just dirt. But the sites are paved and level and it is a really pretty spot. We are 45 foot long and there is plenty of room for us and our Jeep. We camped at San Clemente State Beach in a Motorhome.Undo

Roads and sites are paved. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. Decent site separation even in the full hook up sites. The FHU sites are in rows and don't have a lot of privacy. The no hook up sites are spread around a bluff and some have excellent ocean views but are for smaller rigs. You can hear Interstate 5 24 hours a day. Once you walk down the bluff to the beach you can only hear the ocean, not the freeway! We had fair 4G Verizon signal. We camped at San Clemente State Beach in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

This is one of our favorite parks in southern California. Nice facilities and great sunsets with Catalina Island sometimes in sight. This is one of the few state beaches or parks with full hookups available. The rate is with a California Disabled Discount Card. BTW, there is a disabled veterans card available that allows camping with no fees. The only problem we have ever had here is getting reservations. This is also one of the few California State Parks where you can reserve. Reservations for a specific site become available six months before your planned date. For example reservations during June can't be made until the 1st day of January. Reservations are made through reserveamerica.com, and you need to make reservations as soon as they are available. Week ends fill up fast. Stays are limited to 7 days. We camped at San Clemente State Beach in a Motorhome.Undo

Nice facility. Large sites. A short walk down the bluff to the beach. Great restaurants in downtown San Clemente. The beach trail starts just down the hill from the park, so you can ride bikes along the beach to the pier. Very clean, and the park staff takes good care of the area.

The park is located on a bluff overlooking the ocean. There are a couple paved trails down to the beach. I would estimate approximately 1/4 mile down to beach. We stayed for one night. Itâ€™s a popular RV park so obtaining reservations can be difficult. Most of the sites are drive through and paved. Each spot that I observed had a picnic table and fire pit ring. The spot we stayed at had electric (30/50 amp) water and sewer connections. Some sites don't have these amenities. The bathrooms/showers are clean. Showers will cost you 25 cents for 2 1/2 minutes. I saw no grocery stores or restaurants within walking distance to the park. We will plan a return trip and bring the bikes next time. We camped at San Clemente State Beach in a Motorhome.Undo

Beautiful location but a bit pricey. The park is located on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Most of the pull through sites are further away from the cliff, so the view isn't as good. I believe most of the dry camping is located closest to the water. Decent showers but they are nothing fancy and are pay for use. The town of San Clemente is close by.

Really nice park for beach views from bluffs which the park sits on. It's a short walk down 1 of 2 steep paved walks to the sand. The beach is very nice and wasn't busy at all. All view sites are in the non hook-up area of the park. The hook-up sites are all pull-through and are OK, but certainly nothing special and not at all private. The three nicest hook-up sites that are closest to the bluff just happen to be occupied by the volunteer campground hosts. If I were to ever stay here again I would stay in the non hook-up for view and a bit more privacy. There are showers and flush toilets there also.

Were it not for the near ocean location this place would not be worth stopping at. The asphalt pads are in very poor condition with deep dents from tires and jacks. The only plants on the ground are weeds that stick in your socks and pets paws. There is some freeway noise. The good news is there is a great walking path right next to the ocean to the pier (2 miles one way) and places to eat. You can take the train to San Diego or Orange Co. cities and on to Los Angeles from the pier for nice day trips. Overall it's a $10 park with a $50 location.

There are 72 full hook up pull through sites available. Sites 57-72 are 40ft or less in length but all of the rest are 60ft plus. All pads are paved, reasonably level and wide enough for slides both sides. There is some freeway noise but is reduced the further west your site is located. The park was full on a Saturday late in Feb but only Â¼ full Sunday. I reserved on line and my CA Distinguished Veterans Pass reduced the $60 park fee to $0. This park is much better than the San Mateo State campground just south of here on the other side of the freeway which is back in only, no sewer and the same price.

We got here a day early and was able to get our same site. Cash or check at front booth (we paid CC through ReserveAmerica for our scheduled nights). We stayed in #67 which is on the north end, but itâ€™s shorter than the other rows, so our TT barely fit perpendicularly. Itâ€™s a great location except for some freeway noise. Very easy access to the beach via a 5-10 minute walk. Some train noise, but a fair amount of thunderous artillery from Camp Pendleton. A little on the expensive side for a basic site. Weâ€™d stay again in warmer weather. We camped at San Clemente State Beach in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Nice state park. Plenty of space between sites and there were shade trees throughout. Had site 155 which was a back-in but double wide, so parked extra vehicle next to motorhome. Nothing much more to say except it was quiet except for a bit of highway noise from I-5. We camped at San Clemente State Beach in a Motorhome.Undo

We have stayed at this park every spring break for the past 6 years. It is a bit of a hike down and back up to the beach, but it is well worth the effort. Prices have gone up quite a bit the past couple of years, but the park is still worth the money. There is a bit of freeway noise, but the campground is pretty clean and offers great ocean views. It can be pretty difficult to get reservations and the beach is usually very crowded during the summer months. This is our family's favorite park in the Southern California area.

The only thing we didn't like about this park was that there where few camp site with views of the ocean and the hike down to the beach was a little difficult for me and my wife who are in our sixties. We camped at San Clemente State Beach in a Motorhome.Undo
