Hey guys - about 15 of us are getting together for a bachelor party the weekend of July 4th in Malibu and are looking for a campsite. Some flying in from the East,some coming down from Portland and NorCal, and some local. We will have an RV/Camper coming down with us so it would need to accommodate that as well.

Really just looking to hang out, set up tents, enjoy nature - trails, starting a campfire, playing music, relaxing. Want to be in a beautiful, natural, isolated area while still being able to get in our cars and drive to the beach (or sleep on the beach). What are the best campgrounds in Malibu, and will I have a tough time getting a reservation now for the 4th? Is there a cost associated with getting a reservation? Never been camping and Im helping organize this, should be interesting. Help!

Would love to hear your recommendations...thanks!

malibu has plenty of state parks around it. my favorite is point mugu. nice campgrounds, hiking, etc. take a look at a map and pick a spot and look up the parks website on the web for more information about camping at each specific place

I would also say Point Mugu State Beach. You can camp at the beach. Most people just park, make camp, and have a good time. They also offer wi-fi service through AT&T. Prices for group camping can range from $23 a day to $450 a day depending on the group and the services needed. You may want to contact them at Point Mugu SP for additional information. Something that you may suggest is flying into Oxnard Airport from LAX. May be easier than getting in and out of LAX. If you do that though plan on a morning or afternoon flight as sometimes Oxnard will shutt down due to fog in the evening or early morning.

We've gone to Malibu Creek State Park for the past two summers...love it there!!! I just did a quick search on Reserve America, and they still have several 18 or 24 foot sites available for that weekend. The earlier you book, the better. $25/night. You can't start booking until 7:50AM tomorrow morning.

great recommendation, thank you. when they say 18 or 24 ft sites...what is that, the actual amount of space you have to pitch your tent? that doesnt include a spot for an RV right?
