Point Mugu State Park: Big Sycamore Canyon Campground Professional Review and Guide
"A school of dolphins pushing bait fish into the shore, working them around the rocky points—dolphin skin wet black against the blue water—that was my first impression of Point Mugu State Park’s Big Sycamore Canyon Campground. The beach is gorgeous, a white-sand jewel of a place to picnic, sun, and swim on an unspoiled stretch of coastline."
--Jane & Hans Huber with Bill Mai, The Best In Tent Camping: Southern California (Menasha Ridge Press).
My wife and I had a terrific, romantic anniversary here, and we are avid campers. We LOVED the fact that we were surrounded by big pines, had a creek next to us, the air was great, the trails are great and it was all so close to the beach. We've tried to return every year since but unfortunately, they've been in repair since. Maybe it was us!... Noooo, we weren't THAT bad, I don't think. Anyways, it is a wonderful place for couples and families, especially with small kids. The camping is primitive but there are showers and if you want some of the "high life", walk over to the SPA and get you some. We will return once repairs are done. Please hurry, we miss you!
trails are cool but the ventanna campground sucks, they make many claims on their website but they cram as many site together..no privacy. by looking around i'd say they cut trees to make room for more sites, then sell the wood to campers. while we were hiking we came across a log splitter. they were out of wood to sell, then we saw a guy in a backhoe carry wood to the splitter, then they had wood for sale...hmmm?
