Stayed at the campground last weekend and had a GREAT time. This place is perfect. Park the car, throw out the tent and kick back 25 feet from the shore listening to the ocean crash onto the beach. Nice size lots. Picnic tables, fire pit and a guy who sells firewood by the ranger station. This place is perfect for a simple get a way. Hangout on the beach, watch the ocean. Kids running and playing in the water. Perfect.

Room Tip: It is a beach campground. Not sure why they have all these questions about rooms and indoor pools.

As a Montrealer, camping on the beach of the Pacific Ocean obviously sounds very inviting to me. However, I was very skeptical about it, because throughout the entire Pacific Coast, from Big Sur to LA, you can find several of this type of campgrounds. Due to the absolute lack of privacy of the campsites, I was not entirely convinced whether we should spend a night there.
We did give it a try and despite a hefty fee of $35 USD (cash or credit cards are accepted) per campsite per night, this was a rather pleasant experience. The campers respected the quiet hours, the campground was reasonably maintained and despite the highway noise, you can still enjoy the ocean waves (especially in the early morning). The bathrooms are primitive, but can easily be accessed from any campsite, since all the campsite are lined up one next to another. We have had absolutely no issues while staying at this campground overnight. I do find it overpriced though, hence the rating.

We have been going to Thornhill Broom camping for years. It is primitive, but it is as close as you can get to "camping on the beach". The warm reception and treatment by rangers, etc., was wonderful. Definitely a beautiful location and you feel in touch with nature. Wonderful experience and the kids love it (what is better than a campfire and s'mores on the beach!)

I've always wanted to camp right on the beach & Thornehill Broome was it! There is nothing like being rocked to sleep by the sound of crashing waves. Thornehill Broome is very clean & quiet. I cannot wait to go back.

Walking along the shore at sunset being followed by a family of jumping dolphins and walking up to the sparkling Pacific, with seagulls overhead and seals playing in the waves - OH MALIBU. We reserved this spot 7 months in advance, because if you want to camp here in the summer, when it is an absolute dream land, you MUST. With outhouses, fire pits and wood for sale ($7), you have all you need. We also climbed the Giant Sand Dune and summited Mugu Peak - both are so worth it.

Room Tip: When you make a reservation they are not site specific, so get there early. We got there at 5pm and were more than happy with our spot - there really is no such thing as a bad spot here.
