El Capitan State Beach Camping Guide

El Capitan State Beach offers day use and overnight camping. Located about a 30 minute drive north of Santa Barbara along Highway 101. El Capitan has lots of shady areas with many oak and sycamore trees throughout the park. Some of the camp sites offer beautiful views from the cliff-top. There is a sandy beach with tide pools and the park has lots of hiking trails. It’s a great setting for swimming, fishing, surfing, picnicking and camping. Camping at El Capitan is very popular and the 142 camp sites can fill up months in advance. Reserve early for best camping sites.

This is a very nice camping place although we had an access road passing by the back of our site and just a bit further over, a train track with a train passing by in the night. If, however, you are lucky enough to get a group site, you can actually sit by the cliff over the beach and really enjoy the awesome views! I think it's a very nice place, overall.
Cecilia, At El Capitan State beach the sites in Loop One nearest the beach are still primitive sites, Loop 2 as well...i think you may be refereing to loop three and four which are the loops you see from the road, those are the group sties and have been reconstructed and revamped. THE TREES are missing in LOOP 3 and 4 Because of a large fire years ago.

Many years ago we camped at El Capitan in a pop up trailer. It was wonderful! We drove by there last weekend and it seems campers can no longer camp under the trees! There are now cement pads to park your RV or trailer on! Has anyone camped there recently? I'm not happy about the change.
