“Beautiful view and a tasty Jalama Burger.”

Reviewed 21 April 2018

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 for our new rig was 200 miles up the coast from Orange County to Jalama Beach, a campsite I had seen on numerous Youtube camping videos. It was just as good as everyone had said it was, nice campsites, hookups and a killer view. The park had clean restrooms and showers and a well stocked store with a small restaurant. They offer what is known as The World Famous Jalama Burger which lives up to it's name. Also on the menu is owner Mike's absolutely awesome clam chowder, loaded with big meaty clams and 14 spices, a true award winner. The view from the upper camp sites is stunning, I only hope I can find other RV camps that can compare to Jalama Beach. Since this camp is located in a cove of sorts, surrounded by hills, the sound of the crashing ocean waves are amplified at night and lull you to sleep. The only negative is the ever present wind. I'm sure it would be fine in the summer but in April we found it insanely cold, dress accordingly. In closing I need to mention the 14 mile narrow, winding, steep road leading into the park, it's a beautiful drive through hills and ranch land but does take a while to drive. I loved this park and will return for the views and Jalama Burgers. Oh yeah, and the chowder.

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!
