Great Beach and Family Campground
Bring a bike a bike your walking flip flops. Campsites are separated so you don't feel like you are on top of each other. You do however have to walk some distance to get to the beach down their paved road on the cliffs. Once there it is a beautiful California beach. You can even take your bike and ride into San Clemente or along the tracks to the Pier for seafood or ice cream. You are in the middle of some great surf spots so take a lesson or bring your board.
