The Camp Store and Laundry facility at San Elijo SB is currently closed. California State Parks has selected a vendor that will provide the best quality services and are currently working through the concession contracting process. During this period, we continue to sell firewood at the entrance station. We thank our visitors for their patience and continued support. We anticipate that the store will re-open before Spring, 2021.

News for Campers:
This Sani-Star partnership and new fee collection system will allow State Parks to control the sanitary dump station and prevent illegal use, in order to help us protect the environment. This partnership will assist State Parks in the recovery of rising fees from the sanitary and water districts and offset maintenance costs. This pay per use system allows us to continue with our low camping fees without assessing a dump fee applied to all campers, only those using the dump facilities will be affected.
In the San Diego Coast District, the $10.00 fee for use is charged only to those that would like to use the group dump station located within our three State Park Campgrounds. This is a change from our current policy, which had included the use of the sanitary dump station with a campsite registration fee. Please note: this does not apply to those registered campers using campsites, with designated sewage hook-ups. Campers within designated sewage hook-up campsites have already paid the sewage hook-up fee within the cost of the campsite. This policy is in effect, starting April 1, 2018, at the San Diego Coast District Campgrounds including South Carlsbad State Beach, San Elijo State Beach and Silver Strand State Beach.
California drought restrictions have been lifted. We are in the process of replacing all water stations within in our state parks to ensure they are all in proper working order. We encourage the public to continue to conserve water.
