Leo Carrillo State Beach Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This 1,600-acre park ranges from the shoreline to backdrop hills 1,000 feet high. CA 1 separates the beach from the inland portions of the park, and an underpass connects the two sections. Of the 138 campsites, thirty-two are beachfront sites on a concrete pad for self-contained RVs under 8 feet high (to negotiate the underpass). The remaining sites are across the highway in Arroyo Sequit Canyon. The coastal portion of the park consists of three separate beaches.
South Beach is the most scenic and has the best facilities. North Beach, although host to the RV beachfront campground, is quieter and not as crowded. Yerba Buena Beach, the northernmost, is separated from North Beach by a strip of private property. Its well-shaped waves attract surfers. Stay limit seven days from June through September, fifteen days from October through May."
