  1. Nicole Allen says:

    CAMPSITES IS GREAT OUTDOOR IS PERFECT

  2. SONKI KIM says:

    I heard that the max is 8 person per site to sleep over at
    Leo Carrillo camp site.
    What about a group of 14?
    I mean all the sites are reserved by now and
    we expect more people from other country.
    Is there any way we could pay more for extra persons so that they could sleep over legitimately?

    Please advice

    • Hi Sonki, CampsitePhotos.com can’t officially answer your question about adding more people to a site (above 8) at Leo Carrillo, but we’re pretty sure they will not allow that. You can try calling the park/campground directly to ask: 310 457-8143

  3. Karla says:

    Me and my family what to go camping together on July 13-15 2018 you guys still have space it 35 person and children.

  4. Max says:

    Hi! I would like to camp in Leo Carillo in a place near the beach. It is possible? Can you suggest me a place where to make a reservation for the 23-25 of August? How much it is? Thank you very much!!!!

    • CampsitePhotos is not associated with the campgrounds listed on our site. We provide the photos of each campsite, campground info and link to reservations.

      Leo Carrillo State Park campground is about 1/2 mile inland from the beach. The closest campsites to the beach are 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106 and 107. Go to our Leo Carrillo State Park campground page and click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button to check availability, pricing and make a reservation. Leo Carrillo State Park campground is very popular though and usually sells out 6 months in advance of your date of arrival.

  5. Debra Vicario says:

    Leo Carrillo is a fabulous place to go beach camping. We love just being able to walk across the campground over to the beach. Our grown kids as well as the grand kids have a blast. Swimming during the day tide pools and then camp fires. Keep checking the web sight we just got lucky and were able to get in this past weekend with our family and we were all happy campers.

  6. janet easton says:

    My family and neighbors enjoyed many many days at Leo Carillo. Our husbands worked and travelled . What to do with the kids with school out, husbands busy, and no money? Leo Carillo or San Clemente. Sunday mornings husbands would drive caravan and we would set up campsites. Kids swam, surfed, hiked . (No alcohol or drug) Dads returned friday afternoon and Sunday morning we all packed up and left. These kids are all 60 more or less and worried about their second home during these fires.

    I went by Leo Carrillo campground om12/15/18. It was very sad to see the damage from the fire. They are working on clearing up the campground and rebuilding. Hopefully they will reopen soon.

  8. Victoria says:

    One of the best places to camp. Does anyone know when it’s set to reopen for camping?

    • Hi Victoria,
      No information yet on when Leo Carrillo State Park campground will reopen. Hopefully later this summer. We will post an announcement as soon as we hear.

  9. brett williams says:

    I was able to make a reservation or Leo carillo this weekend. is the park open or is that a mistake?

    • HI Brett,
      We removed the ‘closed’ notice for Leo Carrillo State Park campground, however the California State Park page still has this notice on their site:
      May 20th 2019: The majority of the Leo Carrillo SP campground and day use areas will be opening for the Memorial Day Weekend starting May 24th and reclosing for additional repairs on May 28th. Campsites can be reserved by going to: reservecalifornia.com. In addition, other than the Nicholas Flats ADA trail, the Leo Carrillo SP backcountry trails will also open on May 24th and remain open.

      We did call the California State Park office and the said to call ReserveCalifornia to confirm that it’s open. If you did get a reservation, it’s probably open.

    • Kaylean says:

      Brett,
      Do you have any current photos of the campground or can you describe the site? We had reservations for November 2018, but were cancelled due to the fire. We are hoping to book again for this November, but we want to know, in advance, what the campsite looks like now.
      Thank you.

      • Camp Ranger says:

        Hi Kaylean,

        Great timing with your question. We just took new campsite photos for Leo Carrillo State Park campground and they are available to view on the campground page. We will also post an update on our blog in the next few days. Basically the fire did not burn in the campground, but did burn the vegetation on the hills around the campground.

  10. Hello,

    Leo Carrillo is now open. Yeah! I was wondering if the pictures you have posted are from the new sites or are they still the old pictures before the tragic fire?

    Thank you for all the pictures you post for campgrounds. I use them almost 100% of the time. I appreciate the time and effort made to do this!

    • Thanks for the kinds words Linda, and glad CampsitePhotos.com has helped with your camping travel!
      Our photos of Leo Carrillo State Park are before the Woolsey fire, but the campsite #s and photos are correct. We will be reshooting the campground later this year so that campers will have a better idea of the vegetation, etc. around the campsite.

  11. CamperMama says:

    Planning to camp at Leo Carrillo next week. Which is more current, your photos or the website’s?

    • Hi CamperMama,

      Our Leo Carrillo State Park campsite photos were shot in June, 2019. I’d reckon to guess CampsitePhotos.com has the most current photos of Leo Carrillo State Park campground!
