Came here for a quick visit with my spouse who grew up here. Very much a family campground/beach with the basics for a state park--and amazing beach. Watch out for the tar balls!

The drive to the beach was spectacular. The beauty of the beach with the back drop of the mountains was breathtaking.

This beach is located close enough for a day trip even if its just to enjoy the famous Jalama Burger.

The burgers are so worth the 14 mile twisty road! I have a friend that didn't eat beef. We split a turkey burger, which I was not looking forward to. It was off the hook delicious. I honestly didn't even realize it wasn't beef.

This beach is awesome. The sand was clean with not a lot of bugs. The campground area was also clean. I can't wait to go back.

Gorgeous place, out on a point, 180 degree views, and a campground wedding-caked up the side of a hill to offer lots of unimpeded enjoyment for a lot of happy campers. Winds can be quite testy here, be forewarned. The sand can blast your face...More

This is a funky restaurant/camp store at the Jalama Beach Campground. We LOVE it!! The Jalama Burger is REALLY a fantastic burger. We compared it to burgers around our town and it beats them all!!! We have to admit we also went there for breakfast...More

If you are going just to eat, you can get free parking for one hour as long as you get the restaurant to stamp your pass. Otherwise, it's $10.00 for the day!
