Carpinteria State Beach California
Mapper on 17 Jul 2006
The park is off U.S. 101, twelve miles south of Santa Barbara. Exit at Casitas Pass Road from either North or South Hwy 101, go down Casitas Pass Road to Carpinteria Avenue and make a right at the signal and a left on Palm, the first left. Go to the end of Palm Ave. at the beach. The site has fees and you will pay as you enter. You may want to call ahead with reservations because the campground is often full.

Campground is right next to a mile long of beach that allows for swimming, tide fishing, tide pools, and many other activities. Tidepools contain starfish, sea anemones, crabs, snails, octopi and sea urchins.
There is little privacy from site to site. There are showers and potable water, no hookups. Fire rings allow fires during certain times of the year.
Be sure to cover anything you don't want to get wet during the night. The humidity will soak anything left out.
Camp sites are not very level because of ground squirrels. A nearby train may wake you a few times during the night, but if you play at all the nearby activities, you'll sleep right through it.
