The California coast is filled with unique opportunities to explore the sand and surf. If you’re in the Santa Barbara area, we recommend that you check out the tidepools at Carpinteria State Beach. It’s not every day that you can walk along the shore and see starfish, sea anemones, snails, sea urchins, crabs, and even octopi. These tiny creatures aren’t something most of us see every day, and you could easily spend hours searching the tidepools.
Plus, you can take advantage of what else Carpinteria State Beach has to offer, including:
- Seal & seal lion spotting (December through May)
- Surf fishing
- Sun bathing
- Scuba diving
- Wind surfing
- Guided tours
- And more
The campground at Carpinteria features RV sites with complete hookup as well as a dump station for your convenience. It also has on-site restrooms, showers (both indoor and outdoor), and drinking water. And the best part about the campground? It’s within steps of the Pacific Ocean. You can fall asleep listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach, or get up each morning, grab a cup of coffee, and sit on the sand while you enjoy the early hours.
Carpinteria Beach also happens to be one of four state beach parks that works directly with 101 RV Rentals to provide motorhome rental delivery. If you want to stay a few days at the Carpinteria campground, all you have to do is reserve your campsite and then contact 101 RV Rentals to find the right RV for you. Our travel trailers come equipped with almost everything you need. (Check out this blog about personal items you’ll need to bring along.) We’ll make sure your motorhome is delivered and set up so all you have to do is show up and start enjoying the beach and exploring the tidepools of Carpinteria.
