I think charging by the carload instead of per person would make a lot more sense. We drove through the park, and went to the beach for an hour. The beach was nice. The bathrooms smelled bad.

We visited Huntington Beach State Park as we were looking for a campground. It is a wonderful state park but could not accommodate us as we have a 40 foot RV and there was not an available site. Would love to stay there sometime!
