Gaviota State Park Overview

Gaviota State Park 027

Gaviota State Park is another one of California’s great State beaches and located about 33 miles north of Santa Barbara on U.S. Highway 101. The campground has 39 single-family (mixed-used) campsites for tents, trailers and RVs. All are short walk to the ocean, beach and pier. ¬†Access to the beach is via a trail under the iconic Southern Pacific railroad trestle that crosses Gaviota creek above the day-use parking lot.

The campground also has a camp store, drinking water, flush toilets and showers. Each campsite has a table, fire ring and grill. Firewood is also available for sale from the campground host.
