****R.S.V.P. with payment to Cindee Timm by April 1st. ****


Campground Information:
Sycamore Canyon Campground sits just off the beach in Point Mugu State Park on the west end of the Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu. The 13,300-acre park boasts beautiful beaches, rocky peaks, and miles and miles of hiking trails. Tents are welcome attack this drive-up campground. In addition to beach access, Sycamore Canyon Campground provides fire rings, picnic tables, potable water, coin showers, and flush toilets. The campground sits at the mouth of one of the two main canyons in Point Mugu State Park, Big Sycamore Canyon, and the campground is a convenient starting point for several hikes.

Planned Activities:

- Nature Trail Hiking

- Beach Fun

- Camping Omelet Breakfast

- Fire Pit Talent Show, Smores & Campfire Tales at the Amphitheatre


Important Info to Know: The gate is closed from 10pm to 8am, so there can be no latecomers (they won’t let you in the gate after 10pm) .  We are also VERY limited on parking (only 3 car per site and parking costs extra, first come, first served), so I would recommend carpooling. 

We only have 48 spots for campers, so the first people paid will be the first to get a spot.  If we get enough people over 48, we may be able to reserve an additional campsite if we have your RSVP enough in advance.  Please make sure your child’s medical forms are updated. Please note I have a new email address for any questions you might have. Hope to see you there!
