Faria Beach Park, Ventura, California

Faria Beach Park is a Ventura County park, one of several that spots the beautiful coastline of the coastline between Ventura and Carpinteria. The campground is small, boasting about 40 sites, most of which are beach front. The campground is off of the main road and set down from the train tracks that run adjacent to the ocean's edge, and although you will hear the train from time to time, road noise and train passings are minimal; the sound of the ocean's waves overpower it. The campground has paved interior roads and packed gravel pads. Many sites have fire restrictions and do not allow a campfire. Of the 40 sites, about 15 offer full hookups. Study park maps carefully before booking so you know what your restrictions and amenities are. Sites here are somewhat close together, so also plan on taking your time to back into your spot. Unline Hobson, just up the roads, interior roads here felts a little wider, making parking a little easier. There are showers, restrooms, a common sink/cleaning area, and our favorite, the park store and grill. The grill offers a delicious breakfast and lunch menu, along with a variety of snacks, drinks, ice and sweets. We enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast at the grill's patio overlooking the ocean. Almost all sites offer some type of view, but of course, the beach front ones are best. We felt that sites in the 20-30 range got awfully snug. With high surf, your rig might be sprayed with salt water. Sites here book early, and reservations are a must. There is little room for additional vehicles. Beach access is easy here with a cement staircase leading you to the beach, which is great for sand play or beachcombing.
