Point Mugu State Park California Beach Camping

Point Mugu State Park California
Located in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in Southern California, Point Mugu State Park, also known to locals as Sycamore Canyon features more than 70 miles of hiking trails, and five miles of pristine ocean shoreline

Point Mugu is surrounded by the rocky bluffs and jagged pinnacles of the Boney Mountains State Wilderness Area.

 The natural environment creates a variety of adventures for swimmers, surfers, anglers, cyclist, hikers, and photographers, within the park.

There are two campgrounds at Point Mug State Park, the Thornhill Broom, and Sycamore Canyon, which features views of the ocean. There are no real amenities; there are some restrooms and showers. It a bit on the “ruffling it“side, but kids still enjoy it.

Overall, Point Mugu State Park is secluded and quiet. At night, you will fall asleep to the sound of crickets and frogs. While it is very cold even in the summer months, the rest and peace away from the city makes it worth it.

 Located about an hour drive from Malibu, allow for a 1.5-hour drive from Los Angeles, Orange County, or the San Fernando Valley. Learn more about Point Mugu State Park
