Backpacking Los Angeles Sites
Everyone knows that California is famous for our stars, but we are also famous for camping under the stars. Southern California, especially, is known for our camping sites. From beach camping in the summer to winter camping in the desert, there's a Southern California campground to visit every month of the year. TheLAShop has prepared a detailed list of our favorite camping sites in Los Angeles for 2021!
Carpinteria State Beach
Carpinteria is another great spot to camp by the water. Many of the sites here have ocean views and sounds (not just select sites), and swimming, surfing, and tide pooling are all within reach. Sea lion and seal spotting is common December through May. And all this just 12 miles south of Carpinteria, host of the California Avocado Festival every October.A little lore: Carpinteria was named for the large "carpentry shop" run by the local Chumash who once made canoes and other sea vessels in the area. The Chumash chose this spot because of naturally occurring tar, which they used to seal the boats. Dogs are not allowed on the beach. For the summer of 2021 the Visitor Center, park office, and Tomol Play Area remain closed.
Crystal Cove State Park Moro Campground
Crystal Cove State Park offers two types of camping: Primitive camping and coastal bluff top camping. For families, we recommend the Moro Campground sites with 58 family campsites and picnic tables. 28 are designated RV and trailer sites, and 30 are designated “low impact” for soft-sided trailers, van conversions and tents. Restrooms and showers are available. compressed gas BBQ's, or outdoor fireplaces are permitted, but wood and charcoal fires are not permitted anywhere in the park.
Redwood National And State Parks
Also in Northern California is the Redwood National and State Parks. These parks are the home of the centuries-old trees. Part of the part is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
While you won’t be able to hang your camping hammock on the giant redwood trees, you will be able to find several camping sites that are perfect for sinking your boots into the rich ground that has nurtured these trees. You can camp near the redwood forest or near the coast of the glorious Pacific Ocean.
Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park
Hike in primeval old-growth forest so wild and lush that it was used as a backdrop for the movie Jurassic Park. Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park protects a large percentage of northern California’s old-growth Redwoods as well as a herd of Roosevelt Elk, who are often grazing or resting at the nearby Gold Bluffs Beach. The park is right on the coast, just an hour north of Eureka. Alex from Washington State recommends the Elk Prairie Campground, where you can sleep under the canopy of tall pine and fir trees. The park is open year-round and busiest during the summer. Make sure to pack your waterproof jacket because it is a wet coastal environment. Camping is $35 a night, and families, solo campers or adventurers will all enjoy this campground and the variety of trails available.
