Gold Bluffs Beach Campground
There is a TON of day-use visitors in this part of the park. Please make sure you secure your property and keep it safe. While we were in the campground we saw tons of bikes, radios, and other items left out in campsites. After being a law enforcement park ranger for 20 years I can't tell you how many thefts we saw in campgrounds.
These sites do not have a ton of shade but a lot of times this campground can be really foggy with marine mist. Make sure to pack lots of layers of clothes to fight off the chill.
Sites are pretty flat with a fair amount of space between them.
Getting to this campground can be a process. While we were there we saw 22 cars lined up at 2 pm trying to get on the road towards the campground and beach access.
