Thornhill Broome Beach Campground is in Point Mugu State Park and has 69 primitive campsites stretching for two miles along PCH and right next to the surf of the Pacific Ocean. The campground does take reservations (about 40 are listed online to reserve and 29 are first-come, first-serve). After clicking on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button you’ll be directed to the reservation agency (Reserve California). Enter ‘Point Mugu State Park’ to inquire about Thornhill Broome campground reservations.
Check in is 2:00 p.m. and check out is 12:00 p.m. If trying for a first-come first-serve campsite, it’s advised you arrive early in the morning (to get in line) – especially in the summer and on weekend dates. Also keep in mind that we’ve heard from campers that the designated Thornhill Broome Beach first-come first-serve campsites are not necessarily guaranteed for all of the nights you may like to stay. Campers have been told that campers with a reservation may get the site. There is also a small overflow parking area north of the campground.
Your entry fee covers one vehicle and one legally towed in vehicle. There are additional fees for extra vehicles. You are to park only in your assigned campsite and wheels must remain on the pavement and within the parking space or limit line. Park additional vehicles in the day use lot.
CAMPSITE OCCUPANCY is a maximum of eight people. Tents and other equipment must be confined to the space assigned. Limit 30 days per calendar year.
The campsites are nothing more than parking spots along the highway and accommodate trailers and RVs up to 31 feet. Some will accommodate tents and you can pitch your tent right on the beach (sand). Each campsite has a table and fire ring. A few have BBQ grills. All fires must be in the designated fire rings. Vault toilets are available and there are a few roadside spigots for drinking water at Thornhill Broome Beach Campground. There’s also a cold shower near campsite #47.
The campground and beach are pet-friendly. Dogs on a leash are allowed in the Park’s day use areas, campgrounds and beaches.
Sycamore Canyon campground is another option located in Point Mugu State Park.
Point Mugu State Park is located on Highway One up the road from Malibu and features 5 miles of ocean shoreline and 70 miles of hiking trails along the beach and in the Santa Monica mountains. You’ll find rocky ocean bluffs, sandy beaches, rugged hills, two river canyons, grassy valleys and even the jagged pinnacles of the Boney Mountains State Wilderness area. Outdoor recreation includes surf fishing, swimming, beach combing, ocean kayaking, skin diving, scuba diving, horseback riding, hiking, biking, whale watching, wildlife viewing and for the adventurous – sunbathing.
