A tent camped in Malibu, Los Angeles County
Looking for a Los Angeles campground on the beach? LA limo services serve beaches on a daily basis, but only a few allows for overnight camping.

Additional great campgrounds can be found throughout the Malibu Canyons where we so often travel on Malibu wine tours. Whether you need a party bus or traditional LA limousine, contact us for your transportation to any destination in Southern California. We also offer exclusive party bus rides from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and other destinations.


7) Dockweiler State Beach

Address: 12001 Vista Del Mar, Playa del Rey, CA 90293
Pros: Right in the sand.
Cons: No tents, noise from LAX.

Limousine beach camping
The only non-Malibu campground to appear on our list is Dockweiler in Playa del Rey. This beach truly has some big pros - but also some big cons. While it does offer ON the sand beach camping, this campground is only for RV’s and therefore does not allow tents. It is located near a popular bike route that crosses the campground and leads to popular limo destinations such as Manhattan Beach (3.7 mi.), Marina del Rey (4 mi.), Venice Beach (6 mi.) and Santa Monica Beach (8 mi.). Why book a limousine when you can rent a bike? The campground is gorgeous, but the noise from LAX can be unbearable. Because of the cheap rates and easy accessibility to LA’s most popular attractions, we’ve transported many tourists with our limos to this beach. 



6) Malibu Creek State Park

Address: 1925 Las Virgenes Rd, Calabasas, CA 91302
Pros: Isolated sites, beautiful nature
Cons: Opposite side of PCH from ocean

Rated “The Best Malibu Campground” by Yelp-users, you may wonder why we haven’t rated this beach as our number one. Well, first and foremost, it is not situated on the beach itself. In fact, this state park shouldn’t even be on the list. Located a 10-minute drive from the shore, Malibu Creek State Park is anything but beach camping. But this campground is closer to the sea than most, and it offers a truly seclusive forest camping experience. You will find everything from water swimming holes, creeks, waterfalls and cool rock formations here. But remember to watch out for rattlesnakes, cougars and other creatures found in the Santa Monica’s. Although the Malibu Canyons may be most visited by limos for wine-tasting, these mountains are just as fun to camp in!



5) Sycamore Canyon Campground

Secluded site at Sycamore
Canyon Campground.

Address: 9000 Coast Hwy, Malibu, CA 90265
Pros: Shaded, forested, shop on site
Cons: Not directly on beach


Sycamore Canyon Campground is located right by Sycamore Cove Beach, separated by an underpass which makes for a nice walk from campsite to the ocean. This place can feel crowdy during summer, so it may be necessary to book your campsite in advance. We’ve had several customers ordering party bus vehicles for their nights at Sycamore Canyon. The place is particularly popular for groups, where you rent 3-4 spaces next to one-another and bring a group of friends along. You may experience bad phone reception, particularly by campsites and away from the beach.

4) Leo Carrillo Campground

Address: 35000 W Pacific Coast Hwy Malibu, CA 90265
Pros: Shop on site, shaded
Cons: Not on the beach, crowded

Leo Carrillo may be located on the opposite side of PCH, but offers a nice underpass to Leo Carrillo State Beach, similarly to Sycamore Canyon. This campground is also similar to Sycamore in the way that there’s a local shop on site, offering firewood and other necessities. It can get crowded during summers, and some summer days it may appear more like a beach community than a campground. The majority of the sites are non-private, but it’s easier to find an isolated spot here than at Sycamore Canyon.

3) Malibu Beach RV Camp

Idyllic ocean sites at Malibu Beach RV Camp.
Address: 25801 Coast Hwy, Malibu, CA 90265
Pros: Gorgeous ocean views, not crowded

Cons: Difficult beach access, no campfires

While Malibu RV Camp isn’t located ON the beach itself, it may offer the best views of the Pacific Ocean. Despite its name, this campground is also open for tent campers. Some of the camp sites are relatively seclusive but offers beautiful views of the sea and nearby Dan Blocker State Beach. This is a private and relatively exclusive campground, hence many dating couples order limousines for stays here. We’ve even had groups of friends ordering a party bus for their weekend spent here. The campsite is located just across the PCH from the beach, but unlike Leo Carrillo- and Sycamore Canyon, this campground offers no direct (safe) walking access to the beach.













Ocean sea quality at Santa Rosa Island, California Channel Islands
Few places in California matches
Santa Rosa Island's water quality!
2) Channel Islands Campgrounds

Pros: Secluded, private, scenic
Cons: Travel time

The California Channel Islands have a great variety of campsites near the sea. For limo clients looking for a beach for themselves, we have transported clients to the Port of Los Angeles in order for them to travel and camp at the secluded Little Harbor Campground at Catalina Island. An equally cool trip could be a boat ride to the tiny village of Two Harbors, Catalina in order to camp at Two Harbors Campgrounds. All these trips are available with Catalina Express out of Long Beach, San Pedro and Dana Point. Other Channel Islands can be visited by Island Packers in Ventura, CA. This service offers boat tours to islands such as Santa Cruz-, San Miguel-, Anacapa-, and Santa Rosa Islands. Most of these National Park islands offer overnight camping near secluded beaches.

1) Thornhill Broome Campground

 Address: 9000 W. Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu, CA 90265
Pros: Ideal location right in the sand, few feet from the ocean
Cons: Waves may reach the rent, rocky beach


Thornhill Broome is the ideal place for the most signature Los Angeles beach camping experience. Here you can set up your rent on the sandy beach, just few feet away from the ocean waves. The beach is part of Point Mugu State Park. Just be aware that the waves sometimes do reach tents here; remember to place your tent far from the waves!
