Cool place to imagine what life was like while living in a castle. Not what you would picture a castle to look like but interesting just the same.

Atalaya Caste was a highlight of our camping trip to Huntington Beach State Park. The history is fascinating and it was only two dollars to tour. The beaches here are wide and clean and pretty unpopulated. Not much beachcombing or shelling, though. Really nice, big...More

I love how much history my beautiful state has. This is just a tiny piece of it. If you’ve never been you really need to go. It is full of rich culture.

I didn't know this was here. I was told about it after I got there. It is a state park that has a nominal fee to enter; $5/person. It is a slow, easy drive. Lots of nature and, of course, the ocean. The tide water...More

A very good place to see numerous types of birds, alligators in the swamp environment with the added bonus of sunbathing or walks along a beautiful clean beach. Also interesting is the walk through the Huntington winter house on the groundshouse

Camped in the new section that has just been opened on the south end of the park. Sites are similarly arranged to many commercial campgrounds; they are all in a straight row angled off a straight road ending in a cul de sac. Everything is...More

Yes, at the beach heads. There are also restrooms at the ranger check-in station used by the campers. There are no restrooms at the tide waters or the hiking trails.
