4/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web
Enjoy outdoor recreation along the Pacific Ocean and San Diego Bay at Silver Strand State Beach. Due to its prime location along the shoreline and the area's mild climate, this beach is an ideal location for camping, swimming, boating, volleyball games, and more. The park's bay side boasts panoramas of the San Diego Bay and offers water a bit warmer and calmer than along the ocean. Directly south of this developed spot lies a nature preserve, where you can take a stroll and keep an eye out for snails, sand dollars, and cockle shells.

  • This stretch of beach is perfect! Great for a long stroll down the beach and perfect for some fun in the water with the family. 
  • My 4th trip to this campground was mid July 2016. I was fortunate enough to have scored a beach front site. As usual, the beach was great, loved the relaxing time with the family. We biked and skatebo...  read more »

  • This is the quietest beach in San Diego. Cool breezes, clean restrooms, and lifeguards. If you are visiting from cilder climates, be wary of staying in the sun for too long. Because of the cool breezes and cold Pacific Ocean, this beach is notorious for sunburns. It is a state owned beach, so parking is $10.00 for the whole day.
  • The beach is great. Camping is tight quarters. This is for the F'ing Desert Rats that want to stay up all night and party with no regards to others. Quiet time starts at 10:00 pm My wife and I both asked our neighbors to turn their music down. The forth time, at 11:20. I asked again. I do not feel that I was rude, but direct in explaining that quiet time started at 10:00pm, you need to quiet down. They did turn their radio down. The next morning I discovered that someone had pissed in the front driver side of our jeep! Nice! If you can not follow the rules, or want to acted like fools, be disrespectful to others, please to do not come camp in these parks. Desert Rats, I know that everyone is not like this, but this is what I have been seeing. My wife and I are Jeep people. Be respectful!!!!
  • Beautiful Beach camping, but unless you have an RV, cannot stay over night. NO TENT CAMPING; very strange concept of what plurality of the masses actually means in a supposedly freedom loving society. DON't visit unless you have $50k-$300k worth of motorhome. Doesn't really matter. Park staff allow same visitors repeated visits, hence no reservations available. The so-called "Camp Hosts" programs is just an excuse to let selected persons stay indefinitely.
  • They steal your money ! They don't aceptet our rv because they didnt like our bathroom so they took my 70 $
  • Great beach to camp, though it is basically a big parking lot. The atmosphere is pretty "group party oriented" and if you don't like the smell of campfire, you will not be pleased at all. The beach is literally right there, mere feet from the camp! Consistent wind is great for kite flying and other wind activities.
