“Camping Santa Barbara Style!” Ocean Mesa Campground is the PREMIER campground on the beautiful California Central Coast. Located just 20 minutes north of downtown Santa Barbara, Ocean Mesa is surrounded by Los Padres National Forest above the Pacific Ocean. While here, you can visit the tide pools at nearby El Capitan State Beach, explore 15 miles of hiking trails, enjoy a music-filled evening under the stars at El Capitan Canyon, or just relax and take in the magnificent ocean views of the Gaviota Coast.
Hwy 101, exit El Capitan State Beach Road, turn East, Left on Calle Real.
Camp-California is concerned about the health and safety of our campers and adventurers. While camping and outdoor activities do offer the ability to self-isolate, we are encouraging all California residents and travelers to shelter in place until further notice. We recognize that getting outdoors is what you do best, and we will be here to reacquaint you with nature once we're cleared for adventure again!
Most private parks are open with 14-day minimums. If you are a full-time RVer looking to shelter in place, a member of the traveling medical profession, or a utility worker looking for a park please call our office and we can connect you with an appropriate location.
