Silver Strand State Beach Campground California

Silver Strand State Beach Overview

Silver Strand State Beach 210

Silver Strand State Beach Campground has 129 RV campsites in a ‘parking lot’ type layout and is right along the beautiful white-sand beach. All sites have water & electric hookups (50 amp). Self-contained camping vehicles (up to 40 feet in length) only (car or tent camping is not allowed). Camping fees include the self-contained vehicle plus 1 legally towed or towing vehicle per site.  You can only park in your assigned site, but day lot #3 is now available for campground extra vehicle parking for an extra charge.

The campground has a dump station ($10 fee), (cold-water) showers and flush toilets. The park also has a concession stand, equipment rentals, aquatic center, lifeguards, day use and picnic area. Campsites do not have table or fire rings/grills.  You can use portable fire pits/stoves within assigned campsites on the asphalt if it is self-standing (6″ minimum clearance between ground and bottom of stove). There are also some community concrete fire pits on the beach.

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 you may also be interested in are San Elijo State Beach and South Carlsbad State Beach.

  1. Richard Hinojos says:

    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?

    • Hi Diane,

      Unfortunately there is no overflow parking at Silver Strand State Beach campground for extra vehicles. All vehicles must fit in the campsite.

  3. Vaughn Wesson says:

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

  4. 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’.

  6. dori k Dorsett says:

    hi, we are staying there next week. is there a place we can go before 2:00 and after we leave on friday at 12:00

    • Hi Dori,
      Silver Strand State Beach has day-use parking areas where you can hang out before and after you leave your campsite. You may want to check with the Ranger at check in if you also have to pay for day-use parking.

  7. If we brought on fire pit could we use it by campsite

    • Hi Bri,
      At Silver Strand State Beach – you can use portable fire pits/stoves within assigned campsites on the asphalt if it is self-standing (6″ minimum clearance between ground and bottom of stove). There are also some community concrete fire pits on the beach. 

  8. Harry Holleran says:

    The site states that car camping and tents are not allowed. What is the status on Vans?

  9. Harry Holleran says:

    The site states that car camping and tents are not allowed. What is the status on Vans? Thanks!

    • Hi Harry,
      Per Silver Strand State Beach overnight camping regulations:
      “SELF-CONTAINED VEHICLES ONLY (RV’s) – One which has the capacity to hold waste water in sealed tanks. Minimum – A built-in sink with an enclosed gray water system and a portable chemical toilet with black water tank. Vehicle and tent camping are not allowed. Campers and their pets may not sleep outside their vehicle.”
      So – if you van is not equipped as noted above, it would not be allowed.

  10. Carlos Rubi says:

    hey whats the best way to actual reserve a spot I have going on this website for months now and cant seem to find a spot they are all reserved please help.

    • Hi Carlos,
      Silver Strand State Beach is popular and will be sold out through most of the summer, as well as the weekends from Spring through Fall). Reservations open 6 months prior to the day of your arrival. For example, if you wanted to start your stay on August 20, the first day you could try and reserve a site is on Feb 20 at 8AM Pacific Time through ReserveCalifornia.com.

      You can also use our Campsite Assist tool if the campground is sold out. Campsite Assist will send you a notification when a campsite becomes available on the dates you want to camp. You’ll receive a text and email alert when a site becomes available. The alert/notification will also include a link to try and reserve the site. We recommend you click on the reservation link as soon you as you get your alert to try and reserve the site. You can go here to use Campsite Assist:
