Not to be missed at sunrise or sunset, Leo Carrillo is beautiful, with a wilder side than other beaches in Malibu. Well worth a visit, especially early in the morning or for a perfect sunset.

My family and I spent a night camping at Leo Carrillo State Park. The campsite we had was more than large enough to handle our 8 person tent. Each campsite has a fire ring and picnic table. This made it easy for us to roast...More

This Beach was GREAT! Campsites were all pretty private and very beautiful surroundings. The bathrooms and showers were pretty old and actually stopped working on us on the last day. NO FULL HOOKUPS! Also the spot that we originally picked would not pick our RV...More

While the trail can be challenging given how it climbs for the first 3/4 of a mile, the reward comes in the beautiful flowers in spring and the amazing views of the ocean. It is beautiful.

This beach was totally ungroomed and we liked it that way. We arrived later in the day and only paid $3 to park until sunset. A Great deal! We had waited until low tide to do some beach combing but did not find much. We...More

Can we have two pop up trailers on 1 site? It is 66 double rated and size should fit our two small pups plus one tow vehicle. Since they only allow three vehicles per site we would have to park the other tow vehicle in overflow if that is allowed.

Yes, I have seen two small RV's in one spot plenty of times. You might need to park the tow vehicle in the parking lot.
