Great beach location!
Mar. 2021
Love this beach! So big and love that they offer firepits for guests to enjoy while there. The beach is gorgeous but the extras make the experience. Plenty of places to eat at and enjoy and you could really spend a number of days there since there is so much to do and to see. RV camping practically on the sand and places with live music are really the icing on the cake!

excellent
Oct. 2020
Spent most of the day at this beach watching the surfers, and when they were gone we watched about 5 species of birds. A very relaxing enjoyable time watching the waves roll in and out. The food was nice and the customer service was excellent as well. Will definitely come here again, and bring some wood for the fire pit so we can stay longer!

Perfect Beach experience
Sep. 2020
Beautiful Beach...with plenty of space to spread out. We visited Bolsa Chica on a weekday in September. The weather was perfect. The state beach is very large and maintained well. Parking is available for a small fee. The water is close to the parking. There were restrooms, and a snack bar. This is much less crowded than the beaches close to town. It's popular with the locals. The waves are easy to surf or body board, even for beginners. Lots of fire pits...all in all , the perfect So Cal beach!

Ok for Camping near Beach
Sep. 2020 • Couples
It’s a tight Asphalt Parking lot RV Campground. The beach side side is best as inland side is closer to the noisy PCH traffic. Unfortunately because of traffic noise you can’t hear waves at all. You can see them either from Campground. Beach is wide and goes for miles in each direction. Lots & lots of Day Use parking lots north and south. Showers & Bathrooms are token operated with Token machine outside building. Bike Path runs up and down coast for miles.

Had a great time, gorgeous beach!
Jan. 2020
Loved our sunset! And the campground was simple but clean - bathrooms were nice and clean which is always a plus especially by the beach. The showers were amazing as well, we were able to share a shower and save some water!! The bike path and store were awesome! Love the fire pits on the beach and just really had a great time enjoying the ocean breeze. It was January so you would think it was cold and yucky but I really loved it - had a clear sunny beach day then a cloudy foggy day and then a gorgeous sunset night - it was a little bit of everything wrapped into a 4 day stay! The road noise was not the best for camping but living in LA you get used to it!!!

A great camping spot
Nov. 2019 • Solo
I camped here several times this year. It’s a fun laid-back environment and the state workers do a good job. Hosts are very accommodating And there is a store near the campground that is well stocked. I enjoy my stays here and wish I could have more than the state required 30 days. But I think the states being fair to the community to limit it.

RV camping near the beach
Oct. 2019 • Couples
The coming in Park was nice the Ranger has a great personality. But the campground? The car noise was annoying. The first time we came it was nice hearing the waves. Didn’t mind the cars, but don’t like host that do gossiping. It ruins the friendliness of other campers. So our next stop, will be somewhere else. We support the park Rangers they’re work so hard. But it take one person that don’t mind there own business. They need to teach the host if they have nothing nice to say, just don’t say it. People know how to take care of there families. Without fear. I don’t want to hear about what people did in there pass. Just have faith a leave it at that!!!

Not as Nice
Jun. 2019
While this beach has more room and is less crowded compared to its counterpart HB, it is also less maintained then HB. This location is good if you are looking for less crowds.
