Many of the parking lots were closed so it limited you to one parking lot. We did enjoy a nice long walk in the beach and it’s a pretty clean beach. There is a charge to go onto the property day use charge and if you want to camp there is an rv area to camp with a fee.

So the beach is very nice. Little over 4 miles from the gorgeous Coronado Beach and The Del Hotel. Very clean and nicely lit up parking. There is electricity and water at each spot. The 100’s are right on the beach but you can’t see the ocean unless you go up over a hill just a few feet from the parking spots. Mostly quiet unless someone leaves their dog in their motor home. Nice friendly people to greet you coming in. MUST book 2 days in advance if you want to choose your spot. Drive ins welcome if here is availability. Free dumping of black and gray water. There is bathrooms HOWEVER no lights in the bathrooms, no soap to wash your hands and no way to dry your hands. We paid $65 a night.

Location is nice and the beach is beautiful, but that is all!
Camp hosts are not very pleasant.
Hours of the park (even though on the website are noted) are not actually clear. Check-in is 2pm, by the time you get settled, it is 3pm and you have to be back by 7pm when the gates closed. Not enough time for any sightseeing. Also, have to wait until 10am to see if you can stay the next day... 3 or more hours wasted just to see if you can stay.
I was told to avoid this, one can book online 48 hours in advance..... I tried, it wouldn't accept my reservation.
We have been to many state parks, but definitely won't come back to this one.
If you want to do anything more than watch the ocean, this is not the place to stop

There are beautiful views of the bay and bridge. The park behind is very open, playground for the kids, public bathroom but you will want to come at high tide. At low tide there is not water just mud.

It's a little out of the tourist way which is so nice! The beach is clean and costs $10 for parking. I saw my little bro play beach soccer here and the sand and beach are all well kept. If you want a beach with out tourists go there. There will be locals but it is still way better than mission and finding a nice place to sit.
