Rodent Warning!

Park visitors are advised the park is experiencing an increase in the rodent population such as ground squirrels this year. Ground squirrels can damage property and equipment. While we strive to control rodent populations at this campground park visitors who occupy campsites must take precaution to protect their food and equipment. California State Parks is not responsible for damage to personal property.

Discount Pass must be presented at the time of check in. Your DMV Disabled Placard/License Plate does not automatically give you a discount on your campsite. You will need to obtain a CA State park-issued Disabled Discount Pass (DDP) or Distinguished Veterans Pass (DVP). El Capitan SB is open Year Round. El Capitan SB is now site specific. Campers will reserve a specific site when making a reservation. The former DEL MAR Group Camp (Sites 124 – 132) has been converted to family motorhome/trailer only sites. Only self-contained RVs/trailers are allowed, as restrooms may be closed. No tent camping allowed. These sites are located on a paved lot. Many have an ocean view. Sites have no picnic tables or fire pits. Fees include entry for 1 vehicle and 1 legally towed vehicle or trailer, additional vehicles will be charged per night at the park. Although your site may hold 2 or more vehicles, your reservation only covers 1 vehicle (except for group or specialty sites). Reservations available April 1 – Nov 30 annually. Limited availability. Sites are off reservations and 1st come 1st serve from 12/1 through 3/31, depending on the weather. To book a Group site you must have at least NINE occupants. Dogs are not allowed on the beach.
