      All campsites are reservable at Doheny State Beach campground. There are no walk-in campsites. It’s a popular campground and is usually booked throughout the summer months.

  3. Phil says:

    Is the group site on the beach?

    • Hi Phil,
      If you click on the Doheny State Beach campground page (here) and scroll down – the link to the campground map is on the right. It shows the group camping area location (and it is on the beach).

  4. ScottyCR says:

    How many persons will a group site accommodate?

  5. Andrew Growcock says:

    I know, 38′ feet is over the 35′ restriction, but is 3 extra feet an absolute no?

    • Hi Andrew,
      As long as your rig and all vehicles are within the campsite – it should be fine. However, the Dohney State Beach campground host makes the final call.

  6. Jo Kinn says:

    Are there firepits on the beach at the campground?

  7. Kamil Kovalcik says:

    Is it possoble to make a reservation on the day of arrivig in the campsite?

    • Hi Kamil,
      The only way you can get a campsite (on day of arrival) at Doheny State Beach without having a prior reservation is if there is a site available through a cancelation (or no show). If a site is available the day you arrive, the ranger will assign it to you for the number of days it is available. Doheny State Beach campground is very popular so usually there are several people waiting in line (starting at about 7am) to try and get any sites that are released because of cancelations/no show.
