Driving Directions to surf camp – San Onofre Bluffs State Park Campground

(Do not try to Google maps or Map quest you will get the wrong directions).

From Los Angeles take the 5 or 405 Freeway South (from San Diego head North)
Exit at Basilone Road. You will see San Onofre State Park next exit sign
Turn Right (if coming from San Diego exit Basilone and turn left) towards the beach
Basilone Road leads you straight to the surf camp campground. Go straight, no turns at all; it dead-ends into San Onofre Bluffs Campground and guard kiosk. You will head thru two stoplights and past the power plant. NO TURNS. Road runs parallel to the freeway. Let rangers know you are dropping off at the Endless Summer Surf Camp.

We are located at Campsites 99-101, Trail 4. Please drive the speed limit of 15MPH and respect that there are children playing in the campground. If you plan on staying more than 30 minutes they might want to charge you a day use fee of $15.

Parking / Visiting

If you are driving yourself to camp and are staying for the night there will be an extra vehicle fee of $15 a night. Please inform an overnight counselor you drove in and need an area to park your car at night. We have limited parking space available for employees and overflow parking for parents and campers. Parents are welcome to come visit at any time during the week.


Parking is difficult especially on our Final day, Friday. Please DO NOT Park in Numbered Campsites. The Park Rangers will ticket you. Day Use Parking is available at the Trailheads on the Inland side of the campground at Trail 3,4,5, and 6. During pick up and drop off times a small area to load and unload will be made available for parents picking up and dropping off children. Please park within the cones.
