Carpinteria State Beach Reviews
Best Beach on the Coast!!!! Apr 16, 2011
Carpinteria State Beach is a gem and anyone that stays there will attest to the quality of camping at this location. Carpinteria is just 10 miles down the coast hwy (101) toward Ventura. It is a very popular place for the greater LA area families and reservations are definitely a good idea during any vacation or summer months. Holidays are very hard to reserve so be patient and follow all the instructions on the reservation web site so that you have a chance of getting a spot.
One drawback is that to reserve a beach front site you must be in a camp trailer, motorhome or camper. No tent camping is allowed on the beach front side. But, there a lot of good spots for setting up a tent and the closer to the large grassy area is very good because it is just a short walk to great dining and the downtown area of Carpinteria.
