A camping reservation will cover the primary vehicle only. A 2nd and 3rd overnight vehicle is permitted at $15.00 per night per vehicle. The 2nd vehicle may park in the campsite, space permitting, but the 3rd vehicle will need to park in the 3rd vehicle, South Day Use lot just south of the campground. Vehicles in the 3rd vehicle parking lot may not exceed 20 feet in length. If there is no room for the second vehicle in the campsite, then it may also park in the 3rd vehicle lot. Trailers will count as an extra vehicle but will not be charged if towed in by the primary vehicle.
The 62-acre park is at the mouth of San Juan Creek in Dana Point. There’s over a mile of white, sandy beach and some of the warmest water and surfing (north end of beach) in Southern California. Outdoor recreation includes swimming, hiking, biking, beach combing, volleyball, horseshoes, surf fishing and much more. There is also a marina, boat launch, shops and restaurants within a mile of the campground.
