4 Best Coastal Campgrounds in the San Diego County

 

 

Looking for something fun to do with your family and friends? Check these 4 of San Diego County’s best coastal campgrounds. Make sure to bring your cameras to capture the beauty of San Diego’s beaches. Plan your schedule ahead to see these beautiful attractions.

 

 

 

 

Silver Strand State Beach

Sorry tent campers, only those in RVs can soak up the best of beach and bay here, four-and-a-half miles south of the city of Coronado. Silver Strand is a 7-mile long tombolo that connects Coronado Island to Imperial Beach. That means that this narrow spit divides the warmer, calmer water of San Diego Bay from the Pacific Ocean. The park is set along two-and-a-half miles of ocean beach and one half-mile of bay.

 

San Elijo State Beach

This campground 40 miles north of San Diego is another close-quartered affair sandwiched between bluff and highway. Unlike some other nearby beach campgrounds though, it has plenty of unobstructed beach views, sufficient vegetation and adequate breathing room. And thanks to the location on this dreamy stretch of coast, any faults are entirely forgivable. There’s something unusually enchanting — even for Southern California — about the tableau of palm trees, stately bluffs, gleaming sun and sea.

 

South Carlsbad State Beach

Like its brother in Encinitas, the campground at San Elijo State Beach, the accommodations here consist of a strip sandwiched between the bluffs and the highway. Campsites and cars are scrunched together with little in the way of vegetation or breathing room. But, especially for those who snag a site on the beach side, you can’t beat the view. A low chain link fence is all that separates the campground from the endless blue of sea and sky.

 

San Onofre Bluffs Campground at San Onofre State Beach

San Onofre State Beach is a world of contradictions. The park sees well over 2 million visits yearly and could hardly be closer to the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and the 5 Freeway. Yet, somehow it is possible to feel as if you’re alone on an untouched coastline. This sensation is most abundant at the Bluffs campground, which lies far south of the beach’s most trafficked areas.
