California's Best Ocean-Front Campgrounds
Campgrounds listed in this index have ocean-front sites or campsites which overlook the ocean. Campgrounds are shown by county, listed from south to north. Campgrounds that are inland, without views of the ocean, are not included here.
Even campgrounds that rank green triangles can offer wonderful camping experiences. Especially people with RVs may well find our recommended green triangle campgrounds as scenic and enjoyable as any along the coast.
