I'm looking for some suggestions on campgrounds near Santa Barbara. It can be 10-15 miles from Santa Barbara but preferably near the ocean if possible. Open for suggestions for full hookup or none is fine. Fire pit is preferred as well. I've tried El Capitan, but was a tight squeeze getting into the campspots. My RV is 37 ft. long.
There are a lot of places to park on the PCH between Santa Barbara and LA, right on the beach!
you're thinking of the Rincon, which only goes from south of Carpenteria to Ventura, not to L.A. and there are fees for camping there.
and there is no beach camping south of there, except in a number of state beach campgrounds.
and it's extremely competitive for sites there, with locals saving spots for friends and families.
If you can't find anything with ocean view (hard to find for 37ft), try lake Cachuma county park (hwy 154). On lake, not ocean and not far from downtown Santa Barbara, Solvang, Wineries, Casino, etc. They have range from full hookup to dry camp. First come first serve.
