Amazing coast line. Excellent for sun seekers and watching the sunset in the evening. $8.00 parking, plenty of available spaces. Seaglass can be found amongst the rocks as well as beautiful rounded stones. Worth the time to see...:)

Beautiful beach. Great tide pools for the kids and adults alike. It's very rocky, so bring water shoes.

Went for a weekend on one of last weekends of summer, we had the 'group' camp site. Can have up to 50 people on site, 12 parking spaces. There is your own restroom and showers for your group. It was truly an amazing experience. You can make all the noise you wanted, the site was isolated so no other campers could really here. There were bugs, mostly spiders that crawled into my tent and bit me at night. Less than ten min walk to the private beach which was beautiful and clean. Will be coming back most definitely.

This park is great specially if you have a furry little friend. But LEASHED!!! The dogs can enjoy the beach with their humans. Still have to tie them up. Park has a fee to get in whether you are there for a few hours or camping for the night. I get the fee.... It's to take care of the park, but Malibu prices$$$. So, they should at least try to clean up the areas under the bridge.... Graffiti is everywhere and make the walkway feel like you are safe to walk alone. Also, dog beach with dogs leashed !!!! and rangers giving out tickets. It's crazy!!!! The dogs want to be free and enjoy not being leashed when in the water and running after frisbees. They need to learn a few things from the Huntington Beach for dogs. And dog owners....please pick up after your dogs!!!! Seriously, there's poo everywhere. That's not the dogs fault, it's the owners.

-Dog Beach (North) Review- Quick Facts: -No Parking Fee on Sunday (usually $12/car); not 100%, but I didn't have to pay last Sunday (off season) -Dogs on a leash are allowed in the Park's day use areas, campground and north beach (north of lifeguard tower 3). -Dogs are not allowed on back country trails or south beach (south of lifeguard tower 3). -parking lot gives direct access to dog beach The sand is short out on the North beach making the walk a lot shorter to the water. This place is clean, quiet, and the bathrooms are easily accessible by the parking lot; quick rinse shower is also available by the bathrooms. Leo Carillo Dog Beach is a lot less crowded than Rosie's Dog Beach (Long Beach). It's a plus if your pup is new to socializing with other dogs or you want to take your pup out to the beach for the first time. Overall, any beach that allows dogs is great! Now, can you get the laws to change so our dogs can be unleashed??? The Rangers will give out tickets after the first warning for dogs unleashed, so watch out! Tip: a great place for you and your dog after a morning hike in the Santa Monica Mountains!

when i went to outdoor school in 6th grade, we all hiked from Camp bloomfield to leo carrillo state beach. The tide pools are a perfect place for kids to learn about animals. We all saw an octopus underneath a rock! best place for a family vacation!

Nice stretch of beach. Cool caves and tide pools. A lot of dog lovers, with dogs. Almost obsessive, kinda weird to see people treating dogs like children, whatever i guess... My wife coined it Malipupu Beach due to amount of dog presents left behind.
