One of our favorites Ventura Beach camping spots is Rincon Parkway. This campground offers beachfront RV camping along the Pacific Ocean in Ventura, California. For a fee, RVers can claim a parking space as their “beach home.” We’ve camped at Rincon Parkway three times now. Twice in the Class A motorhome and once in the camper van. For any RVer traveling through Southern California, we highly recommend a visit to Rincon Parkway in Ventura, California.
Ventura Beach Camping – Rincon Parkway
Watch our video below to get an idea of what it like to camp at Rincon Parkway or keep reading.
There are 127 paved sites at this campground. Most sites measure in at 15′ wide x 46′ long. There are some larger sites at the north end of the campground. The best site we camped in was #60 with easy beach access from the site. Since there is a rock wall between the sites and sand, it is more difficult to access the beach, from certain sites but there is public beach access at Hobson Park or Faria Park.
The cost to park overnight has gone up $2 since our first visit. It is now $30 per night plus a $3 online reservation fee. Sites used to be available on a first come, first served basis. As of September 2018, you can make a reservation by going to the Ventura Parks website.
Keep in mind there are no amenities at this campground except for a few dumpsters and portable bathrooms. The trade off is the incredible view, being steps from the sand and the sound of soothing waves crashing in the background.
Since there is no dump facility, a third party will come to your site for RV pumping and portable water. The last price posted was $60 to pump out the tanks with 50 gallons of water or $40 without water.

The morning is usually overcast so we stay inside to have breakfast and enjoy the sound of the waves. By mid-day the marine layer will burn off and that’s when it’s best to sit outside to enjoy the sunshine.
