  • We've camped here dozens of times, overlooking the ocean. You get an outstanding view plus are in walking distance of good stores and restaurants. It's best to camp on the less crowded weekdays...  more »
  • This is one of the great walking beaches in San Diego. At low tide it’s absolutely amazing. The camp ground is also outstanding.  more »
  • "Urban" campground. Walk to stores, coffee shops, restaurants
