Bolsa Chica State Beach is located between Huntington Beach and Seal Beach. Beach camping at Bolsa Chica is limited to recreational vehicles only. No overnight tent camping is allowed on the beach. When you camp at Bolsa Chica you are basically camping in the parking lot. That said this is still a great place to park your RV for an overnight stay.
The wide sandy Bolsa Chica Beach is only steps from your front door. Nearby beachfront hotels charge hundreds of dollars a night and you still have to cross busy Pacific Coast Highway to get to the beach.
There is a paved bike trail that runs all the way to the wedge in Newport Beach in one direction and to Long Beach in the other direction. Fire rings are available on the beach and its best to claim one early during the summer. By noon, most fire rings are usually taken.
Bolsa Chica is not an off the beaten track experience, however, you will not find too many places along the coast where you can get so close to the beach.
