Silver Strand State Beach – Area Recreation

The surf here is relatively calm which is good for swimming, surf fishing and some boogie boarding.  The Silver Strand has a bike path stretching almost 10 miles to Coronado. This is also popular with runners, walkers, and inline skaters. You can also get in on the Grunion runs between March through August.  The bay side of the park is popular for sailing, swimming and paddle boarding. There’s also some nice picnic areas there. You can reach it via 3 underground pedestrian tunnels from the ocean side parking lots.

A couple of other San Diego County beach campgrounds are San Elijo State Beach and South Carlsbad State Beach.

    Please send any camp layout, real photos, rates for disabled

    • Hi Richard,
      You can view Silver Strand State Beach campsites photos on our page HERE. Not all of the campsites have been photographed because it is a ‘parking-lot’ style campground and all of the sites pretty much look the same. Only self-contained vehicles (RVS or trailers) are allowed. There is not car or tent camping permitted. You can click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button on the Silver Strand State Beach campground page to check availability, rates and make a reservation.

  2. Diane Hall says:

    Is there a place to park an extra car?

  3. Vaughn Wesson says:

    are there warm showers at silver strand beach or just beach showers?

  4. Ann says:

    Nice camp site but be prepared for windy days! It gets cold very fast. We are currently here in April and only 1 day out of 5 that the wind dies down.

  5. David Niles says:

    Good Afternoon Camp Ranger. In reading your information page I see that there are fire rings. I don’t know that I have ever seen them. Where might these be?

    • Hi David,
      Good question. The campsites at Silver Strand State Beach do not have tables or fire rings, but there are some community concrete fire pits on the beach/sand. We removed the reference to ‘fire rings’.
