The Bolsa Chica State Beach RV campground offers year-round beachside camping. While Bolsa Chica's campsites also resemble a parking lot, they do have hook-ups available here. Also, the bathroom facilities are brand-new at Bolsa Chica. (You're looking at a picture of a Huntington State Beach bathroom in the photo to your left.)

The campsites at Bolsa Chica sit right on the beach. The sand at this point is very wide, and Bolsa Chica State Beach gets the least visitors of the 3 Huntington beaches...so you'll have plenty of elbow room out on the sand. (Of course, in the campground itself, you'll be packed RV-to-RV. Space is at a premium in metro LA's beach areas.)

In addition to all the usual beach play of swimming and sunning, you'll be able to hike through the wetlands area on one of its foot trails, if you like. The wetlands are a favorite spot in Southern California for bird-watching. There is also a visitor's center with interpretive exhibits available for your enjoyment at Bolsa Chica Wetlands.

Camping rates at Bolsa Chica state beach run $29 to $39 in the off-season, and $34-44 during the busier summer season. (The difference in rates depends on whether or not your spot is "beachfront" or not. Since this campground was made from a converted parking lot, ALL of the spots are close to the beach, so only pay the difference if you just MUST be the closest one to the beach!) Each spot is identical to all the others; there are no trees, picnic tables, etc.

The Bolsa Chica State Beach phone number is (714) 846-3460.
