I just attempted to make a last minute reservation at Two Harbors campground. I'll admit, I was very late attempting to make a reservation, but was shocked to find out that I had to pay $9.95 just to begin a phone conversation! After a couple minutes of collecting payment information, the agent quickly told me that the campground was full, and that I should call "Visitor Services" to see if there are any last minute available sites. Thanks for the help!

I have camped at Two Harbors several times in late summer and early fall, arriving by our friend’s private sailboat. You can also reach Two Harbors by the Catalina Express ferry from San Pedro. (75 minute journey)

Travel to the campground from the boat landing is via a quarter-mile dirt footpath that ascends uphill slightly. There is a free gear-haul service between the boat landing and campground, but you must time it in accordance with the ferry schedule. In other words, the gear-haul service is only offered select times during the day.

The campground is rustic with chemical toilets and an occasional rinse shower and sink with cold water and low-to-no pressure. In the village of Two Harbors (a quarter-mile back toward the boat landing), there are good facilities with flush toilets, coin-operated hot showers, and sinks.

The view is fantastic here. A+. The bluff and campground can be dusty at times, and the tent cabins a bit ragged from age, cobweb buildup in the interior corners, and dust sticking to the canvas walls and mesh windows. I borrowed a broom from the Ranger’s station and did some quick “house-keeping” of my own. As of this writing, the nightly rate for the tent cabins is a flat $50 plus $21 per adult. The tent cabins sleep 6 maximum and include 6 cots/mattresses. BYO sleeping bag. The regular tent sites (pitch your own tent) are $21 per adult.

We are planning a repeat visit this summer (a combo of tent cabin and regular tent camping). During the Independence Day holiday, there are fireworks over Isthmus Cove/Two Harbors. Check the Two Harbors Calendar of Events for the scheduled date. Avalon has their fireworks on July 4th and Two Harbors has theirs a day or two following.

An hour and a half ferry ride from Newport beach, this campground has everything that you could possibly desire. Access to beach and a pristine clear water, hiking trails and everything else.

So as you know, its somewhat pricey (and a bit of a hassle) to get to and from the island, but if you are looking for a beautiful, seaside campground to stay at, you've found it! The view is gorgeous, and they offer a lot for you to do! My only problem was that there was a group of college students partying and drinking till late in the night (I'm a grad student, and am pretty tolerable to that whole scene, but would have liked the camp host to do something about it). Overall, we loved it, and are planning on going back. We stayed at campsite 1 which is right on the water, but we want to stay at 37 next time because it looks like the most private, and still has a great view. Here is a link to a picture of the campground (I don't think they have one on the Catalina website when you reserve a spot) http://almaparadiso.com/paradise/camping/ HAVE FUN!

Very Rustic Campground and town, but if thats what your looking for you will LOVE this place.
We have been going to Two Harbors for years and love camping and getting away from the misery of LA.

You just need to relax and realize everyone is there for the same reason, to party and escape.

There is only one bar in town, and we usually end up there dancing under the stars on the deck. There is a burger place open for lunch and a steak and seafood house open at dinner.
The food is good, ecspecially for the location, and being that there is no competition. You have to try a buffalo milk if you go to the bar. So tasty! not sure whats in it, but it tastes like a banana mudslide.

The staff around town is very friendly, and this is one reason we come here, its not over touristy yet, and very laid back.

This campground seems to book up way in advance (you can book online) ecspecially for holiday weekends and Buccaneer Days.

The campsites near the beach are the best, but usually book up first.
I've never stayed in a tent cabin, but they look good for iffy weather.
