Seacliff State Beach is one of the most popular beachfront campgrounds in California. Home of the 435 foot S.S. Palo Alto, Seacliff State Beach campground offers RV campers (sorry, no tents) 26 full hookup sites and 37 non-hookup sites. With nearly two miles of shoreline on the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary, a visitor center museum, fishing pier, and group picnic area with barbecue grills, it’s no wonder Seacliff State Beach is such a favorite destination!
