El Capitán State Beach
El Capitan State Beach Entrance Improvement Project: The campground will be fully closing to camping for approximately nine months beginning July 29 2024. For the latest updates on the project, please visit the project web page at www.parks.ca.gov/elcapitanproject .
El Capitán State Beach offers visitors a sandy beach, rocky tidepools, and stands of sycamore and oaks along El Capitán Creek. It’s a perfect setting for swimming, fishing, surfing, picnicking and camping. A stairway provides access from the bluffs to the beach area.
Beach wheelchairs are available for use by the public with no cost. With this specially designed chair, wheelchair users may access the beach at several locations. Contact a ranger or lifeguard for additional information.
