Ouch! The dumpster part sounds painful. Sorry.

Is Faria Beach the name of the campground? I'm alway looking for a good place on the beach. One would think since I have lived in SoCal forever I would know the answer but that's not the case.

Yes, called Faria Beach, and right on the beach...county park first come first served...pretty packed in tight...hard for the bigger rigs...Hobson right down the road the same way...both have hookups...but the best is Rincon...highway on one side, crashing waves on the other...dry camping but can accomodate the biggest rigs...all Ventura County...we have hauled the tent trailer to all three, and Rincon is our favorite...

Ok, the first trip is now confirmed and booked - PCV nov 1-4! (clam festival apparently sold out PCV the weekend we originally wanted-who knew?). We are excited and nervous all at the same time...

Both Faria and Hobson are highly desired campgrounds with lots of competition to get a site.
fantastic locations. never camped there since i lived in the area and either surfed nearby or rode my bike by them.
they're two reasons why i miss Ventura County so much.

Got me checking out video on those two campgrounds. Would be nice to just drive and find a spot by the water....maybe someday.

They are both pretty old school campgrounds...medium rigs tops...but million dollar views...unsure if he is still there, but the host at Faria made a pretty decent burger, too...
