    Any recommendations for good socal waterfront spots ( other than the beach )? I'm looking for campsites that can fit my pop up camper (baja off road version)

    I don't care about amenities as I'm self contained but want to be able to fish,swim,etc...

    If you know specific site numbers that would be perfect.

    There's no camping on Fiesta Island. I believe they close at 10 pm.

    some nice ones that I have seen are Lake Casitas near Ojai, or Cachuma Lake which is past Santa Barbara. Or some closer ones are Silverwood Lake which you can see from the top of Cleghorn, Lake Piru out near Ventura County, and I heard Lake Isabella out in Kern county is really nice but I never been there.

    Lake Casitas is an awesome place to camp. My family and I make an annual trip out there every year. Definitely not swimmer friendly IMO though, lots of boats and greasy water IMO. And fishing sucks too. But I still love the spot and would recommend it to friends.

    Carlsbad has a few camping spots on the beach.

    And when I lived in Goleta, just north of Santa Barbara, I lived walking distance to the beach there, and camped on the sand often.

    Coronado beach maybe? or Silver Strand beach?
