Point Mugu State Park

Point Mugu State Park is located about 15 miles south of Oxnard, California off of the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH). This is a great beach to have an ocean front picnic or party. There are several picnic tables with fire pits spread out along the sand, shaded by many sycamore trees. The beautiful rocky bluff towards the south end of the beach provides for beautiful photographic opportunities and could be fun to explore.

The white sandy shore is a beautiful place to bring family and friends, with plenty of space to sunbathe or have a beach blanket picnic. The beach activity here is endless. There are sufficient waves here for surfing, there are calm waters for swimming and sometimes when the wind picks up, windsurfing and kite surfing are popular pastimes. Whether you partake in the recreational side of beach days or choose to lounge about and relax, this is a stunning place to choose.

Point Mugu’s camping site is called Sycamore Canyon Campground and is popular for both overnight camping and for day use. The best time to visit is during the off season, due to heavy crowds during the summer months. You can still enjoy the beauty of the camping area and the warm weather throughout most of the year. Camping costs range from $15.00- $20.00 dollars a night, depending on the season.

There is an abundance of hiking trails around the area. The wildflowers during the spring and summer months bring many hikers to this site. There are also biking trails available for the more adventurous types.

Parking at Point Mugu costs $10.00 a day and the lot is open from 8am to Sunset.
