El Capitán State Beach Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Though not quite the place to seek pure tent camping solitude, El Capitán State Beach may be the ultimate slice of unspoiled California beach heaven. This massive camping facility, located on a bluﬀ above the beach, is the prime locale for every beach activity imaginable: sunbathing, surﬁng, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and more. Although the camping area is often bustling with visitors and large RVs, you can easily ﬁnd peace and quiet when you need it.
There are acres of prime beach real estate below, perfect for all-day lounging sessions—just don’t forget your cooler, umbrella, and sunblock. The attraction of El Capitán has everything to do with its geography. The campsites are perched in a grove of oak trees atop a bluﬀ above the shoreline. Most sites have unobstructed ocean views, and many oﬀer natural privacy."
