Picked Thornhill primitive site for something a little different on our RV trip around California. This was our home for two nights as we explored Channel Islands National Park. Easy checkin, parking on pavement, feet in the sand. Some trash and the beaches aren't as...More

Spectacular view of the mountains and rock formations. Beach access and picnic area. Pay for beach access. But the pictures you'll get are worth it.

I don't care how cold it is or how crazy the waves are, I will jump into the water at this beach. Hurricane in another state causing the waves to be insane? No problem. 50 degrees? No problem. It's a great beach.

This beach is a long way from housing and hasn't seemed very crowded when we've been there. We mostly go to have people look at the big rock. It is pretty close to PCH so traffic is a bit loud. You have to pay for...More

Yes, there is an entrance fee and varies during different time of year and of course holidays. Remember, it is a state park. The place can get very crowded depending on holidays. The campground will get full.
