This is our favorite campground, whether in tents, RV or cabins. Yes it can get windy at times, but the utter isolation of the place adds to the charm. We took beach walks where we saw only a dozen people, and eight of them were...More

The views at Jalama beach are incredible. We prefer to stay on the top row, mostly because you have electrical hook ups... but the view is second only to the beach front spots (which can be difficult to reserve). We have walked up and down...More

We just purchased our FIRST travel trailer, so no more hotel reviews for a while. Decided we could spend three or four nights in a campsite for the same cost as one night in a hotel, thus extending our vacations. Our FIRST break in trip...More

Frankly I avoid camping here on the weekend because it can get noisy. Maybe I'm getting old; however, this beach is a stepback in time to when California had less people. Let you dog off the leash and walk the beach for miles. You may...More

We come camping here every year with friends and love this place. The sites are clean and fairly spacious, except for the section in the middle where sites are back-to-back and there is no privacy. The beach here is popular with surfers and kite-surfers and...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!
