Climate - Climate in the San Francisco-Bay area varies greatly with elevation and the amount of coastal influence. Areas with more coastal influence experience moderate temperatures year round with fog likely from June through mid-August. Plan your coastal visit in the late summer or fall to ensure the best conditions for viewing the scenery. Also, occasional clear days between winter and spring storms are incomparable. Areas further inland experience greater temperature extremes, with relatively cooler winters and hot summers. Inland areas often receive frost on winter nights. As throughout most of California most of the precipitation comes in the winter months, with April through October normally very dry.

Location - The beach is 16 miles south of Santa Cruz and 60 miles south of San Francisco via Highway One and San Andreas Road.

Report: I would have to agree with Linda's statement below; The camp host is not doing his job. He never enforces the 10:00pm quite time and try asking to buy some wood if you can ever get him out of his camper. What the heck is really going on in his camper? The camp host needs to be replaced with someone who wants to be there and work.

Report: We had a good time camping and would recommend Sunset to family and friends. It is very full with young teens getting drunk and staying up late. The park host does not help with quite time control. He just stays in his little camper all day. If you want to camp here do it on the weekdays when the teens are in school.

Report: Some of the worst camping I ever experienced. The spots are cramped and over crowded. The locals use this campground as a partying place, so make sure your not here on a weekend. Do yourself favor and go to the KOA down the street instead.
