SAN ELIJO STATE BEACH

Campground Information - Campsite Photos - Information
– San Elijo is located in Encinitas California and is one of my favorite places to camp.   Because of its popularity, it fills up fast, especially in the summer months!

San Elijo State Beach Campground is one of my favorite places to camp and one of the hardest to get reservations for.  It is located about an hour north of San Diego and is right on the bluff.  There are great eating places and a fantastic market just across the way. (see map at bottom of page).  We love to walk over to the Cardiff market and get sushi for lunch and maybe pick something from the meat counter to cook for dinner.

Stairs!  Be ready to climb the stairs.  They are taller at the North End.
This was the walkway in front of sites 40-55 but now the sites go right up to the fence … the fence was actually brought back a bit.
Sandpipers .. always looking for that sand crab!

A morning walk from the campground north up to Swami’s is great.  You can climb the stairs to the parking lot as well.

San Elijo has months that the seaweed is heavy and other months with lots of rocks…. each month is a bit different!
