This camping location was amazing. You can't beat the view and the beach is so close and easily accessible. The store on site has anything you need and the restaurant lives up to its reviews by far! The onsite shower situation is pretty good as well, but the bathrooms are really small and seem dirty even though the staff is very good about the upkeep. Overall, excellent experience and we will definitely be back!

This place has been a favorite spot for over 20 years. It's has been consistent with its atmosphere and great service. The location is perfect for a great Burger.

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 end up having it to yourself. If you have a RV reserve one of the spots furthest back and high up. They have electricity and tend to be much quiter than the surfers camping right down in the front. By all means shop at the store and get a Jalama Burger. This place is a jewel.

This place MUST be heaven on earth for children, dogs and humans! Everyone puts on a smile when entering here, once you get past the moss lined trees on the windy roads you enter to get into this magical kingdom! The beaches are really beautiful here, but don't tell anyone else! Even the Burgers at the Jalama Beach Café are very good something about the thinly sliced lettuce and sea air makes it a great experience I think. The surroundings of this campground are truly beautiful, once you're here you really don't want to leave. You just see things differently here. The ocean turns to gold at sunset!
Be sure and try some of the "Clam Chowder" at the store too, these guys really put their hearts into what their doing, say "hi" and leave them a tip once in awhile, that will leave a smile on their faces too, ya know they work hard too doing what they do everyday trying to keep everybody happy while you're having fun.
So wind your way down to this place, after you get a reservation to camp for a few days, or if you are just looking to get a burger you can get in and watch the waves and take in a stroll at sunset....you can never have a bad day enjoying the waves and a walk on the beach with your dog or the kids. Enjoy!
