Emma Wood State Beach Campground
Emma Wood State Beach's North Beach Campground is off Highway 101 in Ventura. The North Beach Campground features oceanfront sites along State Beach Access Road. Camping is limited to self-contained RVs or trailers. There are few amenities other than portable toilets and rocks formed into campfire circles, but the views are spectacular - unobstructed oceanfront camping. The North Beach Campground has 86 sites in two areas along the beach. Railroad tracks pass behind the campground, but most visitors don't mind the occasional train.
Emma Wood State Beach also has a Hike & Bike Site, Enroute camping, and a Ventura River Group Camps.
The Enroute site is for self-contained RVs or trailers arriving late in the day. Occupants of these sites must vacate them by 9:00 AM the following morning.
