Leo Carrillo State Park Campground
Leo Carrillo State Park is northwest of Malibu's popular Zuma Beach. Carrillo State Park consists of a cluster of pocket beaches off the Pacific Coast Highway. Although the steeply sloped beaches make them dangerous for inexperienced swimmers, the area is still popular for sun bathing, beach strolling, picnicking, surfing, fishing, diving, and kiteboarding.
The campground's 130 campsites can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. The campground has hot showers, a camp store, and a campfire center. Electrical hook-ups for some sites were added in the 2015-16 off-season and are available begining mid-July 2016. Campsites are well shaded by oaks and offer more privacy than most beach campgrounds to the south. A trail from the campground leads down to the beach. There is also has a Group Camp off the north end of the campground and a Hike & Bike site at the south end.
