Camp at Manresa Beach

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

Hang out at your spacious, secluded campsite, then go swimming, surfing, or clamming at the scenic Manresa Beach.

All 64 tent campsites here are walk-in, making them further in from the road, and more roomy. Each site comes with a fire ring, picnic table, and food locker. There is access to bathrooms and showers, as well.

You can make a reservation here

Perfect!

I come here every summer, and I'm always happy about it. Great waves, beautiful sunsets, big campsites, cute little hikes along the coast, great restrooms

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on.
