  • It is nearly impossible to get reservations for this place. If you don't call immediately when the site becomes available you will be out of luck. Most of the time I can't get reservations even 6 mont...  more »

  • Parking costs $10. This is a mediocre beach. It's known for the sinking ship. You are not allowed to walk to the end of the pier due to it's instability. This beach smells like dead fish. We see seals a lot here. There are plenty of restrooms (just bring your own wipes) and they have outdoor showers and picnic areas with tables and grills. It is difficult to get the bonfire spots, unless you get there very early in the morning and stay until the evening. They have a snack shack and parking for RVs.
  • Just saw the sign from the freeway on our way back home from Santa Cruz, so we decided to stop in and check it out... Absolutely amazing place to visit... We only saw part if this area and are looking forward to going back and visiting again... Super friendly and knowledgeable people... Next time we go we are going to camp and stay a while...
  • Been coming here since I was little. It's a lovely walk for me and my dog. The scenery can't be beat! No matter the weather this is an excellent place.
  • Nice parking, lots of place on the beach to settle. There is a strong fishy smell that might bother some people. The ship is sank and it is hard to see anything anymore. The pier is not accessible more than half of it which is owned by seagulls. Still one of the best beach around because of the parking (10$) which is at 2 min walk from the beach. There is free restroom and a lot of picnic tables.
  • Awesome rv Park “Right on the beach.” Very clean and well kept. Great way to spend your days off if you can get a spot.
