For us, march means Spring Break, and Spring Break means camping.  So we wanted to share one of our favorite California  camping spots: Point Mugu.   Point Mugu is only 90 minutes from Donwtown Los Angeles, but it might as well be a world away.    This secluded 14,000 acre state park is just off of Highway 1, and features over 60 miles of hiking trails, as well as mountains, beaches, and amazing sunsets.     In the Winter and early Spring ( NOW!) you  can sometimes catch views of migrating whales from your beach side campsite.    Point Mugu  is a great spot where you can pull a camper like  your R-Pod or T@b trailer  right out on to the beach,  you can also tent camp on the beach sites or on more traditional parking  pads.    If  the Point Mugu State Park is full, and you can’t find any camping spots there,  an excellent backup is  Leo Carrillo State Park, only 8 miles away.   And  you’ll find plenty of supplies, along with some of the best surf in SoCal only 14 miles away in Malibu.

 For more info, check out the Ca State Parks website, and let us know your favorite beach camping spot in the comments below.
