Living in Southern California we don't have quick access to beautiful mountains, rivers and open land. Of course all of those are within a 2- 6 drive but sometimes we just need a quick trip to satisfy our camp vibes. Fortunately we have the beach and amazing weather all year round, which makes for the perfect weekend get away.
Recently we took a weekend trip to a beach site in Point Mugu State Park, which is located off the 1, north of Santa Monica. Got up early on a Saturday morning right after a, short rain storm, grabbed the dog and headed up to get a spot. It took us about an hour and half to get there and were one of the first to show. We got a prime site and setup camp and enjoyed the day.
