El Capitan State Beach Campout: June 7-10, 2018
This extremely popular beach west of Santa Barbara off U.S. Highway 101, is a perfect place to enjoy camping, hiking, surfing, picnicking, and beach walking. Lush sycamores and oaks flourish along El Capitán Creek at the entry to the state beach. Tall bluff-top groves are visible for miles along the terraced coastline. At El Capitán, the moderate climate brings cool fog during the summer months. A stairway provides access from the bluffs to the beach area.
The 2018 AIDS/LifeCycle bike ride from SF to LA is scheduled to pass directly by El Capitán on Day 6 of the tour, (Friday, June 8th). We will plan to “cheer-on” the riders as they pass the campground on their way toward Paradise Pit in Santa Barbara!
El Capitán SB is located off Hwy 101 seventeen miles west of Santa Barbara. from Hwy 101 North- or Southbound, take Exit 117 for El Capitan State Beach. Proceed south toward the ocean and the park entrance. RV's not recommended as sites have no hookups for electricity or water. Parking is limited to 2 cars per campsite. Parking fee of $10 per car/night will be changed at the entrance kiosk, so please carpool if at all possible.
