So, my buddies and I are gonna go camping here later next month...none of us have ever been there. I've read some real cool stuff about the place. Climb some cliffs and jump into the ocean and the beach itself sounds cool. The hike sounds weak but at least it'll be cooler. Plus, sounds like more a "party" park instead of a family one so it'll be a big plus.

Anyone else ever been there? Am I wrong with what I've read? Any nearby suggestions if this park does suck?

I've been there many times. The last two times though I almost stepped on rattlesnakes, so watch where you're walking. There are lots of lizards that look like snakes, but just a word of caution.

Malibu Creek is gorgeous. Sometimes there are 'undesirables' that ruin it for everyone. They're the usual punk type that smokes their dubies and trashes the area with soda cans. For the most part though, you're gonna love it. Parts of the hike are definitely not 'weak.' Some of the hills will kick your butt.

Cool. Most of us (including myself) are in good shape so a tough hike will be fun.

I read there are some cliffs you can jump off into the water? Any truth to this and if so, is it worth the climb?

I think you are referring to the rock pool (see photos in link below).

Photo Essay: Malibu Creek's Rock Pool: LAist (http://laist.com/2007/04/08/photo_essay_malibu_creeks_rock_pool.php - broken link)

Malibu Creek State Park is really interesting for being so close to such a large city. It is NOT Yosemite Ntl Park where you can hike for days. But you can definitely have a good time. I am not aware of any camp sites in the park....

The landscape there has been the backdrop for many differnet films/TV shows: Planet of the Apes (the original), Butch Cassady & the Sundance Kid, and M.A.S.H.
