Everything About Camping in Jalama Beach County Park
Jul 2, 2019
‘All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’, to avoid this, Jack needs a getaway and nothing better than a beach camping at the secluded and pristine Jalama.
The serene Jalama Beach is about a 45 minute drive from Lompoc and an hour drive from Santa Barbara.
Outdoor activities like beach combing, biking, birdwatching, sunbathing, bodysurfing, hiking, kayaking, stargazing, and nature trails are aplenty here.
Grab your fishing rod and catch hold of perches, cabezons, and halibuts to devour later.
If you are an indoor person, make sure you carry cards, board games or a book to read.
Marvel at the spectacle of the migrating California Gray whales from February to April and September to November.
At Jalama beach, there are 98 campsites and RVs while 29 campsites are with electrical hookups for those who can’t imagine their lives without smart phones.
Want to plan a small party of 20-40 people? There are 2 camping sites on a first come, first serve basis but advance booking will always be better.
The camp ground has drinking water, flush toilets, hot showers, a dump station, a grocery store, restaurants etc. Barbeque grills, fire pits, fire rings and firewood are also provided at the camp site.
Cannot live without your dogs? Pay a small fee! Also, you must provide proof that the dog is vaccinated against rabies.
This beach is ideal for those who want to be isolated because the place has got no cell phone reception. However, there are old-fashioned pay phones.
The Beach is home to the famous and mouth watering ‘Jalama Beach Burger’. Along with it, the local restaurant also serves delicious sandwiches, hotdogs and cheeseburgers.
April 1 to September 30 is generally the peak season but the rates are generally steep at this time of the year so plan accordingly.
