$15 parking. Only one place to get food, "Sea Salt." It took over 30 minutes to get a cheeseburger, chicken sandwich and fries for $28. Beach has lots of trash mixed into the sand. Felt more like Tijuana than Orange County.

All the beaches in Huntington are awesome, but we were disappointed that the new(er) concessions at Bolsa Chica State Beach are closed in the winter. We were looking forward to toes in the sand dining and relaxing with a glass a wine.

Great spot, easy hookups, just a bike path between us and the beach. It was a beautiful week. Warm, beach not crowded at all, lots of washed up garbage, people, stop using plastic straws, PLEASE. Fire rings available. Shower building looked good, camp host informative.

Great walking path, with a beautiful view of the pacific! There are also fire pits on the sand and food stands to choose from.

Great to walk. Very clean. Surf was up and many were enjoying the sun and waves. Sunny day and the sand is nice and packed. The waves are not intimidating water too cold to bathe

This has always been my home beach. Asphalt paved trail for runners, walkers and bikers to ride along the coast. They got the fire rings to do bonfires on the beach. Always a great place to get outdoors- any time of the year!
