Nice paved trailer sites, miles of paved campground loops, and paved trails and roads to the beach for the kids to ride bikes. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. Also offered daily ranger-led nature programs for the kids.

Love the short dunes and the broad beaches. We had fun just playing in the sand and running up the hills. A great place to stop for a little playtime.

Kids having fun in surf with water. Running up and down the dunes. Watching birds. Watching the California seals come into harbor on rocks, bouys, and water.
