Where to stay in Channel Islands National Park

You can stay inside Channel Islands National Park if you bring your tent and supplies for primitive camping. If you want a roof over your head, you'll be spoiled for choice on the mainland. Oxnard, Ventura, and Carpinteria have plenty of affordable chain hotels, while the accommodations in Santa Barbara tend more toward upscale bed and breakfasts and inns. Places book up in the summer and on holiday weekends, so try to reserve in advance if you visit during these times. Rates also rise during local events and festivals.
