Great bayside park with camping, golf, marina, and water access. Uncrowded compared to most beach-area state parks in California. A real pleasure.

We love coming here whenever the opportunity comes up. Our favorite camp spot is right next to all this beauty. Thumbs up

It's a magnificent setting. Staff are wonderful as is access to the bay. Afternoon breeze can be strong and cold! Campground is sold out in season.
