This military campground accepts reservations for up to three months. Walk-in reservations are only available during the month that you walk in. Various effect reservation policy and confuse all the patrons enough to the point that you have to call to ask when you can call to get a reservation.

Campsite Review: Del Mar Beach Campground insider info:

We love the beach at Camp Pendleton, both beach campgrounds have lots to say for them, both are pretty, and both are busy on weekends. Del Mar Beach has a bigger weekend crowd and lots more sand.

At Del Mar Beach, the campground is used daily by the Marines driving their Amphibious Assault Vehicles right behind the RVs on their way to practice areas. As a kid, I would have loved it.

Beachfront sites cost more than back row sites.


Del Mar Beach Campground is all about location. Right on the sand.
