|Campsite #10, thank the lucky stars we got it.|
Now for the reason this campground was worth it. The trail head I mentioned above leads to a variety of hikes. We chose to go with the Scenic Trail because...well I like scenery. We also happened to score the best weather you could ask for in February, a balmy 75 degrees. I think the Scenic Trail is 2.7 miles or so but we kept wandering whenever we'd see a little path shooting off to the side, well worth it. There's a good list of hikes in Point Mugu State Park here.

The other positive of this campground is that it's right across the 1 from the beach. And unlike a lot of campgrounds further south it is not right one the 1 so you don't get the road noise. After our hike we ventured down to the beach for sunset (hiding our beers of course because for some dumb reason alcohol is now allowed on beaches in California). It was not too shabby a sunset

After sunset we went back to camp and proceeded to drink to much by the campfire and do dumb things like take pictures of husband face's knife against the fire and say things like "That's a hell of an elk." At least we make ourselves laugh.
