Doheny State Beach is two parks in one - with camping in the southern area (with some campsites only steps away from the beach) and day use in the northern area, where there is a five-acre lawn with picnic facilities and volleyball courts. Surfing is popular, but is restricted to the north end of the beach. Surf fishing is also popular.
The 62-acre park, administered by the California Department of Parks & Recreation, is at the mouth of San Juan Creek. With over a mile of white, sandy beach and some of the warmest water and best swimming and surfing in California, it's no wonder that people return here year after year to vacation.
The campground has 121 campsites sites (about 55 beachfront) for RVs, trailers and tents. There are also flush toilets, hot showers and a dump station located at the campground. Group camping is also available. Each campsite has a table, fire ring and grill.
