I've got 2 campsites reserved at El Capitan State Beach Campground for the weekend of Sept 9-11. This is one of my favorite campgrounds in SoCal! El Capitan State Beach offers visitors a sandy beach and rocky tidepools. Sycamore and oak trees provide ample shade and a stairway provides access from the bluffs to the beach area. It's the perfect setting for swimming, hiking, fishing, surfing, or just relaxing on the beach!
Here's the plan:
Friday - Arrive anytime after 2pm and set-up camp + your drink of choice around the campfire Friday evening
Saturday - Hang out at the beach or go for a hike + potluck dinner on Saturday night and games around the campfire
Sunday - Checkout by 12pm (for those who are interested, we can go wine tasting in the Funk Zone on Sunday before heading home)
Cost: $50/ person for 2 nights of camping (includes parking for 3 vehicles per site)

As the hottest, driest and lowest national park, Death Valley is a place of contrasts and extremes. From a scorching desert, to snow that frosts the park’s towering peaks to lush wildflower meadows & small oasis that provide a reprieve from the heat to seemingly endless desert plains!
late Oct is mid 70's in the day and mid-50's at night. Perfect time of year. Over our weekend there will be THE PEAK of the Orionoids Meteor Shower
This event is for camping and a road trip. Our site is civilized with flush restrooms, and running water. As well as some shops/stores close if needed.
This is the perfect time to explore our own backyard. California has so much to offer! And what better way to enjoy the stunning nature in these strange times than camping. It is the safest, most fun and covid-safe social activity!
This is also FLEXIBLE camping. You can do two or three nights. Your choice.
Fri: Arrive at your site and setup.
Sat: Head out and explore the park. The park as much to offer from harder hikes, to easy hikes or to all car with only a few steps needed.
We split between those who want some good hikes and those who want more of road trip w/ several smaller hikes. We have a planned route and you can be with us. Or you can strike out on your own.
Sun: you get to do on Sun what you did not do on Sat. And head home. Or you can stay Sunday night and head out Mon.
What do I bring? Due to varied dietary needs and food contact issues, it's better if bring what you like and prep it. The logistics of providing food for every possible diet, as well as food prep issues is just not feasible or safe.
The only specialized gear you need to bring is Tent, Sleeping bag, Sleeping Pad (yoga mat). Everything else is household items you already have.
