Just west and a little north of Santa Barbara along highway 101 you’ll find the idyllic campground of Refugio State Beach. The campground has 66 campsites very close to a beautiful beach. This is a great place to view the Channel Islands, migrating whales, beachcomb, surf, swim, fish, kayak, snorkel, check out the tide pools or just relax.  You can also get some nice biking riding in as a trail connects to El Capitan State Beach to the east. Although the campsites are a bit snug, there is great demand for this campground. It’s also a nice base camp to visit Solvang (15 miles away), Santa Barbara or even knock out a hike to Gaviota Peak (2,450), which offers superb views of Santa Barbara County, Point Conception and the Channel Islands. The campground has hot showers, flush toilets and a picnic area.

    This is the beach I remember as a child and young teenager! We loved this beach and came every year for many years! The pictures of it bring back some great memories!
