The La Jolla Valley hike-in tent-camping sites are little known and seldom used. Little info about these campsites can be found anywhere, and you may not believe they exist until you motivate yourself to walk up there and take a look. There are a variety of routes to this destination, all of which offer great views of the ocean amid pristine terrain. The number-one reason to visit this place: this is the only true backcountry campground in the Santa Monica Mountains. The sites offer 360-degree views without any sign of civilization, and you’ll be hardpressed to find another soul in the area.
