Point Mugu State Park

The Point Mug State Park is located in the Santa Monica Mountains and reaches fives miles up the shoreline. The park features sand dunes, rocky bluffs, sandy beaches, hills and uplands, canyons created by two of the area's major rivers, and a variety of grasslands and forests. Trees in the area include oaks, sycamores and walnuts. Visitors will find more than 70 miles worth of hiking trails throughout the park. Adventurous hikers can travel up the jagged pinnacles of the Boney Mountains Wilderness Area. In addition to hiking, visitors can fish, body surf and swim. The beach can be reached by traveling 15 miles south from the town of Oxnard. Camping is available in the park throughout the more than 13,000 acres worth of grounds. Campers have access to a comfort station, a dump station, an information center, a ranger station, restrooms, showers, parking, a picnic area and telephones. The park is great for campers who are not all that experienced and who want to camp not too far from civilization. Just a few minutes from one of California's major highways, the grounds are still quiet and serene. Prices for camping overnight are reasonable and average around $10 per site.
