This is one of the nicer more quieter beaches. There is plenty of parking and the beach is not as crowded as most Southern California beaches.

Each Campsite has it's own raised steel circular ring with a cooking grate that takes up 1/3 on top opening. You can burn wood inside the ring for a camp fire or for cooking.
