    Hello. I thought I booked site 57 for tonight and tomorrow. I evidently did not hit submit and I am on my way to you. I can’t get through to anyone to try to book this. Do you have sites available? Please call me at your earlier convenience. Thank you.

    • Hi Michelle,
      CampsitePhotos.com is not associated with the campgrounds we have listed on our site. We provide the photos, camping info and links to check availability/make a reservation. ReserveCalifornia.com handles CA State Park reservations. I did a quick check and space is available tonight and tomorrow night at Malibu Creek State Park. You can also visit ReserveCalifornia.com to check/reserve or call them at 800 444-7275.

    Hi, do you have the general date when these campsite photos were taken? Just doing some comparison of photos and I think maybe these are from a while ago. Some of the trees seem to be gone now in photos by others. Thanks!

    • Hi Vuthy,

      We took the Malibu Creek State Park photos back in 2015, but are planning to take new photos of the campground since the Woolsey fire went through there last year. Look for new photos of the campsite later this year.

      • vuthy says:

        Thank you for the clarification. I noticed your site #29 photo has a large tree with 4 thick trunks on the left. On ReserveCalifornia, their site picture shows a tree with only one trunk left. I think it’s the same tree, post-damage unfortunately.

      • Camp Ranger says:

        You are welcome Vuthy!
        And yes, vegetation will change over time, especially in the event of the fire. The campsites in the photos are the correct campsite #s though.

    • vuthy says:

      I visited the park June 9, 2019, to do some hiking and scooped out the campground. It’s a small though nice campground with varied sites. Sadly, a lot of the trees shown in these older pics are gone. The tree in #29 is just a small charred stump, but the park shows good signs of recovery. Will be camping there in a week!

  3. Shawna says:

    Do you have any photos of the Group Site at Malibu Creek?

    • Hi Shawna,
      We don’t have the group site photos of Malibu Creek State Park yet. However, we are going to reshoot the entire campground this Thursday and will be sure to include the group photos. Look for all new photos (including group sites) up on the site later next week.

  4. Hello,
    We have a reservation for camping with our 19 foot trailer on August 2 and 3, 2019. We know check out time is noon but we need to stay until 2:00 p.m. that day. Is it possible to move the car and trailer to a day parking place at check out time for us to leave it there for 2 more hours? If so, can you let me know how and who to contact? I already tried the 818-880-0367 number and listened to the long message and it referred me to 818-880-0363 which I tried and is no longer a working number/disconnected. Thank you in advance for any help you can give us. Sincerely, Cathy Howard

    • Hi Cathy,
      Unfortunately these park/campground numbers don’t reach a live person most of the time. I can tell you that there are two large parking lots at Malibu Creek State Park. One is soon after you enter (on Park Entrance Road), coordinates: 34.099077, -118.714229. This is rarely full and has plenty of room to park your vehicle and trailer from 12:00pm to 2:00pm. You will have to vacate the campsite by 12:00pm. There’s another parking lot at Malibu Creek State Park trailhead, but there isn’t as much space and that lot may be pretty full depending on the day. And when you’re there, you can also touch base with the camp host or ranger to let them know what you’ll be doing.

  5. Tim says:

    The photo of site 62 does not show a table. Maybe it’s out of the view. Please confirm it does have table. Thanks.

    • Hi Tim,

      Yes, Malibu Creek State Park campsite #62 does have a table. Here’s an updated photo we shot in June, 2019. We will be replacing photo on campground page with this as well.
