Discover Point Mugu State Park

Getting Outdoors

Tucked away amid the Santa Monica Mountains, Point Mugu State Park offers an abundance of opportunities for outdoor recreation. For most people, however, a visit to this beautiful park typically starts down on the beach.

With five miles of shoreline on offer, the coastal scenery here is quite spectacular. There are imposing rocky bluffs and sand dunes backing stretches of pristine beach, and anyone who loves being near the sea will instantly feel right at home taking a stroll along the sand.

If the weather (and the water) is warm enough, you can strip down to your swimwear and enjoy a cooling dip. Other Point Mugu campers prefer to simply stake out a spot on the sand to read a book, catch some sun, and simply watch the waves roll in. Keen anglers can enjoy surf fishing straight from the beach.

Once you've spent some time enjoying the sand between your toes, you might want to slip into some hiking boots and go exploring. Some 70 miles of trails wind their way throughout Point Mugu State Park, and there are routes available to suit a wide variety of fitness levels.

The Scenic and Overlook Trails Loop runs just under three miles and is a popular, easy route that's reasonably close to the Sycamore Canyon Campground. It offers some lovely ocean views that will have you stopping to snap plenty of photos.

Mugu Peak Trail is a little over five miles and offers more of a physical challenge for hikers. Located in the southern section of the park, it's quite steep in a few places and offers impressive views of the surrounding mountains and coastline.

Some trails also lead you into the Boney Mountains Wilderness Area, which is located in the eastern portion of the park. The views of Boney Mountain are particularly spectacular, and if you time your visit right during the spring, there's every chance you'll come across vibrant and colorful wildflowers while you're out exploring the trails.

Camping at Point Mugu State Park

If you want to camp with an RV in Point Mugu State Park, you can book an RV in Ventura County and then choose from two campgrounds:

  • Sycamore Canyon Campground. Located just off the Pacific Coast Highway, Sycamore Canyon Campground features 56 campsites which can accommodate RVs up to 31 feet long. Restrooms with flush toilets and hot showers are available, while each site gets a picnic table and fire ring. A dump station is also provided, with many sites accessible to people with disabilities.
  • Thornhill Broome Campground. Located around a mile and a half northeast and also easily accessible from the Pacific Coast Highway, the Thornhill Broome Campground features more than 60 primitive campsites that can accommodate RVs up to 31 feet. Popular with surfers, the campground features vault toilets and water spigots, while a cold shower is also provided. Best of all, leashed pets are welcome here.

Exploring the Area

With so much beautiful terrain and coastline to explore, you'll probably want to spend several days soaking up the best of Point Mugu State Park. But when you're all done RV camping at Point Mugu State Park and you're ready to hit the highway again, you'll find plenty of other wonderful attractions and destinations within easy reach.

Head east and you'll soon find yourself in Leo Carrillo State Park, where you'll find more great hiking and coastal scenery on offer. If you'd rather head northwest to Oxnard, you might like to enjoy a relaxing yacht cruise on Channel Islands Harbor. Or if you've got a longer road trip in mind, take your rental RV further along the coast up to Santa Barbara, where you can enjoy excellent shopping and dining on historic Stearns Wharf.

The Southern California coastline is the ideal place for RV touring, so make sure you take time to experience the best the region has to offer.
