Seacliff State Beach Camping

Camping at Seacliff State Beach is limited to RVs or trailers which must have fully operating, permanently installed, self-contained plumbing. However, there are a number of hook-up sites with water, electricity and sewer. The camping area is composed of a long row of paved RV parking slots facing the beach. Most are wide enough to allow a small outdoor area adjacent to the RV.

The campground is divided into four sections: Lots A,B, and C and a hook-up area. Campers should provide their own picnic table and raised fire ring. Many people roll out a patch of artificial turf and set up camp chairs beside their RV.
