I'm afraid to let people know how great this place is....rules are rules and thats what you have at a state park, Rules. We have been going to carpinteria for years. Not only have we met nice people, we have never met unfriendly workers, even the police who drive through to check things out have been very nice. Is it Perfect, NO, and No place is. If carp. is so....bad, then why can't we get reserv. half the time. Always booked, although when we are there and comp. says booked, not always the case. Its the way the campsite is run, and that is by the state, so what does that tell you, so therefore rules are rule. If this camp ground was closed it would be a devasting to us beach lovers. This beach has all kinds of sea shells you can collect, when tide is low you can go out on the rocks and see all colors of star fish, you can sit on the beach and watch pods of dolphin go by. But yea, you haters stick to the forest! AND you can walk to town and browse, shop and eat at plenty of good rest.'s.
