From US-101, take the Las Posas Rd exit heading South. -- From SR-1, turn South onto Las Posas Rd. This road will take you to the gate. Once through the gate, continue on Las Posas Rd to the first stop sign. Las Posas goes around a curve to the right and becomes 13th St. The stop sign is on 13th St. Turn left onto Laguna Rd. Go about .7 miles to the Beach Motel on your left. DO NOT turn onto 16th St in front of the motel. Instead, go just past the motel and turn left into one of the three paved RV Registration lanes. There's a sign here for "RV Registration." Check-in is inside the motel. The La Posas gate is open from 0600 - 1800hrs. The Wood Ave gate (Main gate) is open 24 hrs.

Due to renovations, reception was in a trailer on site versus in the beach motel. Fellow campers friendly and pleasant. Beautiful beachfront. Nice wilderness area (salt estuary). Stayed in site 151. Great cable connections. Old electric connections but effective. Quiet location; easy to get to; Las Posas gate open only from 6AM to 6PM; use Mugu Rd gate during off hours and weekends. Pick up a base map upon check in for orientation purposes. Will definitely come back!

Enjoyed our stay, especially since on the ocean. Quiet area. We did see signs of homesteading and think they need to do some clean up around a few of the campers. Campground needs upgrades, everything works, just electric panels only have one plug in and are ancient. Hotel closed for renovations and like other poster check in is in trailer. Staff was very polite and helpful. Would stay again. Didn't use restrooms. Also wish they would change 2 pet limit, they aren't following the other rules so do away with this one and if pets are an issue kick the offender out. My 4 are better than most peoples 1.

J.C. left this review using the Directory software: - Campground is still open, but motel is closed for renovation. Registration is now in a trailer in site 103. Washing machines are gone. I was told if we needed a washer/dryer, there are some located in active duty housing area. You will need directions. This is our third year here, still enjoy Point Mugu. There are picnic tables and fire rings by the sites. Remember if you are over 40 feet, you will want sites 155-159 or the 200 numbered sites.

Very nice location. Anywhere you can stay next to the water always makes for a great stay. The staff were extremely professional, as well as polite. The only downfall that had nothing to do with the overall facility was the windy weather that was cold. That just had to do with the season. Other than that the place is absolutely worth it.

Absolutely loved our stay!! Very fortunate to have gotten site 118 which opens to the beach. Watched dolphins and seals from camper while eating breakfast and lunch. Sites are close but better than other beach locations we have visited. Active runway with random check flights going at different times of day and evening. Engine runup near campground during our visit. Free laundry..small NEX facility but well stocked for essentials. Free movies on weekend. Had an issue with extending our stay but was resolved to our satisfaction. Good location for visiting local area north or south.

Gorgeous beach, saw people catching fish. Spots are tight and map on site is outdated. There is also a lagoon for tenters. Only problem was we had to go through main gate because we arrived after 6 pm and despite base sticker, civilian at gate was very rude and disrespectful when asked simple questions and responded, I kid you not, by saying things like "you are blocking traffic" (nobody was behind me) and "you got it?" Small exchange and beach motel check-in were quite friendly however. Excellent wi fi.

J.C. left this review using the Directory software: - Staff at the Beach Motel are as nice as always. There are newspapers every morning for both hotel and RV park guests. We used their washers and dryers this time and they are free and well maintained. RV Park utilities work, but they do not seem to be doing much maintenance and at some point expect the electric outlets to fail. Most sites can accommodate rigs up to 40 feet. If you have a 45 footer, suggest you ask for 156-159 or the "200" numbered sites. There is direct beach access. Mugu has a gas station and a small NEX, you'll need to go to Port Hueneme for a big NEX and Commissary. Being winter, no mosquitoes. We had no problem with wifi.

This was our 2nd visit and we will certainly return. We prefer sites in the low 100's as they afford ocean view. We were in #104. The staff is most helpful and friendly and make you feel right at home. Paper, coffee and laundry free..a big plus and they passed out tin of Danish cookies with card to each guest for Christmas. Very thoughtful. Los Palmas gate always open. While we were there, this was only open gate. Small NEX on base is fine for last minute supplies. We do go over to base on Port Hueneme for groceries etc. Beach is very nice and clean as is the campground. They do recycle. John and Amy Stanton

Loved Point Mugu! Our spot was facing the ocean and I loved it. I could hear the surf during the night - very relaxing. Quiet, private beach which was very clean. This area is a protected seal sanctuary and we got to see a very large number of Harbor Seals with their babies. There is also an abundance of other wildlife. You are not allowed on the part of the beaches where the seals live. WiFi is unreliable. Great café with really good food just down the road near the small BX. Free movie at the theater every Thursday night. Oxnard is also a very nice town with lots to do. Will be staying here again. They also take reservations!

We just came back from here, we had a total of 18 rigs in our group. Elks Kamper Klub this was our second time hosting this group here. Everyone is awesome and even with a few glitches with the new computer system, a good time was had by all. Our only complaint right now is that we were eaten alive by huge blood thirsty Mosquitoes, Seems to be a bad year for them at all areas where there is an estuary nearby. Be forewarned and forearmed!!! The office staff had citronella candles burning in the lobby!

Great location but limited facilities. The base has a very small PX although there is all the usual but small facilities, auto shop, gas station, subway, gym, golf course, etc,. The RV park is clean and the staff is good, polite, etc. Wifi is unreliable. It is out for hours at a time and keeps dropping the connection when it is working. There are two channels of wifi and you must switch channels frequently to get a connection. Still better than a couple of years ago when it was out for 4 days at a time. We like this area and enjoy our stays at Mugu but must acknowledge Port Hueneme has better facilities if a slightly less fabulous location.

We only spent one night on our way back to the San Diego area, so our ratings are based on a limited observation. We did have some problem locating the park as the GPS coordinates listed above put us in the middle of a civilian housing area several miles north of Pt. Mugu. We finally called the base to get a street address for the GPS (none listed above). Once on the base, and in the in the park, my Garmin GPS said the coordinates were N34.05910, W-119.06222. Once we were settled, we found the location on the beach great. You can hear the ocean, so we left our window open all night. The electrical hookup boxes were badly decaying, although everything worked ok. There was a cable TV connector, but no signal. We heard that the park is due for a major upgrade in the near future.

We've been coming to Mugu from N.W. Montana for 4 years. I'm a Retired D/V. Last year 2011, we weren't sure we could afford it, what with the gas prices so high. I decided to make it a working vacation. As such I would be in need of internet services. I called before we made reservations to make sure WiFi or cable was working. Was told it was working fine. Of course, when we got there it was down stayed down for 3 weeks. Was told the "Server" was down and that they couldn't afford a new one. "SERVER"????? Come on gang, you can do better that that... Upon arrival we got another surprise. Surprise!!! We've raised our rates. Not a couple of bucks, or even 5 bucks, but went from $23.00 to $30.00 a day. Gee, that might have be nice to know when we made our reservations. And it wasn't even indicated on the Web Site. Thought we might have trouble getting home with that extra expense and having to rent a Verizon WiFi modem for work. Not a happy camper.. However, we still love the place, but see ZERO upgrades from the increase of fees. Our site had broken glass, nails and chunks of wood all over the place. The showers, while they had been updated??? didn't even have soap dishes in the showers. Can't make the trip this summer 2012. Camp fees, gas prices, still no reliable internet service has given us enough cause to just stay home. We have so enjoyed the park for so many years, it's a shame that "MWR" here and at other military parks just don't seem to have the "Troops" "Welfare" in mind. It's hard enough just to survive and MWR doesn't seem to want to help.

You can't beat the location! The beach here is very nice, clean - sort of- every time we came back from the beach we had tar all over our feet. We didn't go in the water, but there were plenty of kids who did & it looked very shallow. We also saw plenty of birds, dolphin & sea lions. One person even saw a Whale. If you go to the end of the street in front of the motel, you would see the sea lions lying on the sand, they looked like a bunch of rocks. We enjoyed riding our bikes around the area as there is very little traffic & it's mostly flat. I think they had new workers when we checked in because the person didn't know which sites would accommodate a 40' class A or anything about the sites. He told us to go pick one out. Also, there are a lot of weeds in the gravel areas, so that could use some clean up. All the staff was very nice & helpful. The laundry area was clean & FREE! We didn't use the rest rooms. Try to bring everything you need because stores aren't close & the base exchange is a HUGH RIPOFF! I feel sorry for the people who live on base & need to use it. I bought a dozen eggs, which cost twice the price of eggs at Target & a loaf of bread that $1 more for the exact same kind. Port Hueneme isn't too far (not for a quick pickup of milk or bread) & you can do major shopping there. Overall, it was a good place to go & we would return if in the area again.

Great campground in a great location, you of course can't beat camping on the beach for 30 a night! It is easy to get to once you get thru the LA traffic. The post is very nice but small, if you need something specific head up the road to Point Hueneme which has everything. As for the beach, it is very nice and clean, water was very cold but the best part is it might as well have been Sea World, everyday we saw dolphins, birds, and seals within 30 feet of the shore. Activities near by are pretty good, the President Reagan Library is within 40 minutes in Simi Valley and is a must see (free to active duty military), Santa Monica NRA is right there and provides tons of hiking opportunities, and the golf course on Point Hueneme is very nice. On the campground the bath and laundry facilities were clean and nice, fire rings are provided, connections including cable all worked perfectly, the only down side is some of the spots especially the ones closest to the beach are a little short making it hard to back in a long camper but not impossible. We will certainly return as this is a very nice campground and well ran.

Great campground in a great location, you of course can't beat camping on the beach for 30 a night! It is easy to get to once you get thru the LA traffic.

We take our grandchildren with us every year. We have gone on overniters with the kids. Each time is great. Our grand-kids are getting older, this may be the last year they attend with us. It is relaxing there; friendly; price is great;June/July weather is great; our experience there is great. One note: the first time we took our 6 grandchildren, they asked, "where are all the people?" prior to arriving there, we passed by Ventura Beach, they noticed the crowds. We answered, we are the crowd. Nice.

One of our favorite places to stay in Southern California!! Staff is one of the friendliest around and very helpful. Bathrooms have been remodeled since our last visit and are really nice (although we didn't use them for showering). One new addition is the FREE laundry now. It's nice to see with the price increase that some of the bases are adding this convenience. We would definitely stay here again. Site 123 is one of our favorite sites. This year we have enjoyed watching HUGE pods of dolphins swim by.

Just an amazing spot to spend a relaxing weekend. The staff is excellent and they always make sure everyone is taken care of. Had a group of 8 other RV's with me and they couldn't believe how nice it was to camp less than 30 feet from the ocean. Sleeping at night listening to the surf hit the beach is the best ever.

No credit card required to reserve. No cancellation fee. No payment until you get there. No hassle. $30 a night. All paved pads that are plenty wide with abundant space between each site (could have fit 3 more RV's between us). Yards from the beach which is free of the rip raft of most beaches. Friendly staff. The only drawback was the sand fleas. Definitely will stay here again.

Stayed here for the 30 day maximum period. Even though it's $30 a night, we felt that this was a great price considering what we would have had to pay at local RV parks. Additionally, we were 10 paces from the beach!! The view from my rig was beach and surf.....can hardly complain. We stayed busy watching the pelicans, dolphins, and seals. The sites are in need of some work. They're nothing to brag about, but they are fairly level. The engine hush house/test cell sits right next to the facility. Sometimes it got a little annoying listening to them run up engines, but, after all, that is the "sound of freedom". The motel lobby and laundry were clean and well-kept. The bathroom/shower facilities were also clean and well-kept. There's a gas station a couple of miles away with a car wash next door. The gas station has propane as well. Just a small NEX on Pt. Mugu. You can get the basics there. There's a great NEX at Port Hueneme. We would definitely stay here again.
