Santa Barbara Beach Camping
About Us & Vision
Today we consider it a great honor to carry on the role of protecting and sharing the beauty of the California coast with our guests. Our goal is to nurture an environment in harmony with the nature and history of the Canyon while allowing our guests to enjoy a relaxing Santa Barbara beach camping experience. The camp is designed to be an antidote to all that is excessive, formal, artificial or contrived. By focusing on the essence of things, we hope to offer you a welcomed retreat in tune with the spirit of the Canyon.
“Something for everyone” isn’t just a saying at El Capitan Canyon, it’s our mantra. Our spectacular settings with views of the Gaviota Coast, Pacific Ocean, and Santa Ynez Mountains provide a stunning backdrop for activities and adventure. Tag along on one of our docent-led hikes along the Selma Rubin Trail. Experience our organic garden, llama farm, and breathtaking views. Explore the picturesque grounds with a hike along one of the many trails to marvel at the 2,500 acres of protected State Park land that surrounds us. On property, you can take a dip in our heated pool or checkout complimentary adult bicycles for a cruise around the Canyon. Seasonally, we offer yoga, stargazing, ropes course activities, docent-led beach runs and, every Saturday from Memorial Day to Labor Day, our ever-popular Summer BBQ and Canyon Concert Series.
