Carpinteria State Beach, Carpinteria, California

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice beach, but we would not return. Spaces are hard to get into with a long trailer. "Full hookups" in San Miguel loop do not include sewage, so we had to use camp showers. Campground hosts, who were volunteers, went around hourly with a clipboard, citing people for numerous silly things. Our friends brought a golf cart but were not allowed to drive it because it did not have a license plate. The camp hosts must have been exempt from this law, because they had a cart with no plates. My son was not able to ride his electric scooter in the campground either, even though he was wearing a helmet. The park rangers were very professional, but camp hosts were extremely rude to us and abused their authority. We were hassled daily about our dogs barking at people walking by. Our neighbors were evicted during a previous visit because of barking dogs. It did not make for an enjoyable camping trip. We will never go back! We camped at Carpinteria State Beach in a Travel Trailer.
