Leo Carillo State Beach is 24 miles north of Santa Monica along California's Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1). Surfing, sandy shores, tide pools, sea caves and coastal bluffs are what you can expect. Leo Carrillo's seaside campground has 135 family sites that can handle rigs up to 31 feet; a group site that can handle 50 persons sits in the back of the canyon. Giant sycamore trees shade the main campground. A tree-lined, stream-bottomed canyon penetrates deep into the surrounding hills. More information: call 818/880-0350 or navigate your way to /parks.ca.gov/.

Jam-packed on summer weekends, visits during mid-week and off-season are best for San Elijo State Beach, just north of San Diego near Cardiff-by-the-Sea. It's worth it, though. The 170-unit campground is a narrow gem nestled against a coastal-cliff shoreline, offering superb views and great year-round surfing, snorkeling and diving. Catch the ranger's campfire lecture on marine life. More information: call 760/753-5091 or click on /parks.ca.gov/.
The campground at Leo Carillo State Beach is on the [b]east side of Hwy 1, across from the beach, and the ocean.

The campground at San Elijo State Beach is on the [b]west side of Interstate 5, right next to the ocean.

Frederick steered us north to San Elijo to recover after a harried kid filled week at Campland in San Diego. Absolutely an awesome site hanging on a 100' cliff overlooking the Pacific. You could have parked three rigs in the site it was so big. It was a fantastic stay there and if Marriott had that location I doubt we'd ever experienced it.
