Fire rings are available on the sand on a first-come first-served basis. You can also have a propane fire ring at your campsite. Generators are also not permitted at the campground.

10 Comments on “Bolsa Chica State Beach”

  1. Can I bring my own, portable fire pit to the campground?

    • Hi Becky,
      Not sure if you can, usually campgrounds allows it if it is a self contained fire pit. I recommend you call Bosla Chica State Beach directly at: 714 846-3460

  2. Mellody says:

    Are bathrooms open 24 hours and any indoor showers?

  3. Lizette Tirado says:

    Do you allow tent over the trucks for sleeping

  4. Annabel Alford says:

    It is NORTH of Huntington pier, not south.

  5. Do I have to make a reservation before the day I’m going

    • Hi Sissi,
      Pretty sure ReserveCalifornia doesn’t allow for day before reservations but you can give it a try. If there is availability at Bolsa Chica State Park you will be able to camp there w/o a reservation.
