Visitors to Southern California beaches find many great attractions along the coast. Visitors who camp at Gaviota State Park Campground are next to the ocean and not far from other fine beaches.
Gaviota State Park Campground is located along the coast, off Highway 101, 33 miles northwest of Santa Barbara. The campsites at Gaviota State Park are a few hundred yards inland along Gaviota Creek and nearly under the shadow of an overhead railroad trestle. Visitors to the park and beach here enjoy fishing from the pier and sunning near the rolling waves. A boat hoist on the pier can be used to lower smallcraft into the ocean. The major drawback of the campground is the wind, which can ravage poorly anchored tents. RV and trailer campers don't seem to mind as much.
Gaviota State Park Campground has 38 campsites arranged a loop. Good campground amenities such as showers and a camp store are available.
