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.
28-31 March 2014
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.
December 19-28, 2013
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.
July 17 - 22, 2013
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.
23 August to 24 August 2011
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.
May 25, to June 23, 2011
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.

This was our first RV experience. My wife and I enjoyed our stay here very much. The park is surrounded by the beach and an estuary, providing lots to watch. From our spot we could watch the surf come in, harbor seals and dolphin swim by, along with pelicans, ducks, and many other birds flying and diving. The park is adjacent to a large engine run facility, which does impact the view from many spots. I only heard large prop engines being run, which didn't bother me at all. For $30 a night, the sites seemed rather basic; asphalt pad surrounded by sand, a picnic table and a fire ring. Hook-ups include 30/50 AMP service, basic cable TV, phone (didn't utilize it), water, and sewer. Also included was free WiFi, but coverage was intermittent. Community bathrooms were closed for remodeling. Laundry is available in adjacent lodging facility, which also offered free coffee and sold some sundries. Office personnel were friendly. Place was almost empty during the week, and almost full over Veteran's Day weekend. Pt Mugu has a decent gym, small shopette, and gas station. The gas station has a propane station and a wand type car wash, but no diesel. We did to go to Port Hueneme (20-min drive) and get a base sticker. Pass & registration was right at the main gate. Port Hueneme has a large NEX, commissary, and the gas station offers diesel. It was about 15 min into Camarillo. Lots of shopping (including a large outlet mall), restaurants, etc... Looking forward to another stay.
May 2 - May 16, 2010
This is a nice little park. Free coffee every morning in the Beach Motel lobby (where you check in). Right now, a lot of the spaces are having electrical difficulties. The sea salt air tends to eat away hookups. And, the wifi is limited at best. The beach is really close - my wife and walked it nearly every money. Sea lions, seals, pelicans and dolphins are often visible. The navy exchange is small, no diesel at the gas station -- but there is a Subway next door to the exchange. Port Hueneme is about 9 miles away. This is a fairly good location for trips to Catalina and the Channel Islands National Park.
April 11 to 17, 2010
We selected a 30 amp site because it is right on the Pacific Ocean - just 12 feet of road separates us from the dune barrier to the beach. We came on Sunday and used the Main Gate via Wood Rd. as instructed. You'll see the Motel where you check-in; however, if you continue just a bit farther, you can take a left turn and easily park the rig behind the motel and walk in through the back door. The park has Wi-fi, but we found it dropping in and out. The power post is old and we blew a fuse about 7PM one evening. I hooked up to the vacant site next door and called the office/motel; telling them I was OK until morning. Around 8:30PM someone showed up and replaced the fuse - GREAT service... We have a million dollar view, but I might be hesitant to spend $30/night if it goes up. There are many sites that have little or no view, but all are close to the beach. We have a 40 ft. motorhome.
February 18-March 1, 2010
What a great location! We had a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean, with the beach stretching off to the east. Although the BX was very small and no commissary, the Port Hueneme complex was only 20 minutes way. The laundry was $1 to wash and $.50 to dry with three washers and four dryers. New machines were being installed. Not a lot to do on the base but there was a great walk out to the point either along the beach or on the road. Lots of seals in the estuary provided additional entertainment. We had a terrific storm one Sunday morning with extremely high surf. Unfortunately, a lot of the beach was washed away and the road to the point was closed. The campground experienced some flooding but no serious damage. We paid $23/night but were told the price was going up to $30 as of June 1. Great location and we hope to return some day.

If you are looking for a park "ON" the ocean, this is it. Location: The base and park are a bit away from the surrounding city and without a toad, its a bit of a walk to the NEX area. But, you are 1 sand dune from the beach. Clean/Hosp: Front desk staff very nice and helpful (also serves as lodge/hotel desk). A drawback to being so close to the beach is lots of blowing sand and the restrooms are a little dated, but fine. Amen/Fac: Since I was here about 6 years ago, the base has gone down hill with many areas looking overgrown and some (driving range) closed completely. There is a NEX, club/cyber area, gym and such about 1 1/2 miles from park on main road. There is also a lot of wildlife to view (birds, seals, etc) in the areas surrounding the park. Also a change since the early 2000's, the road around the base perimeter and ANG base is closed (used to make for a nice run/bike ride and had areas of extensive wildlife).

The beach motel and RV Park is in one of the greatest locations on the west coast. The campground is on a private beach with a second (surfer’s beach) up the road a bit from the camp grounds. The surf is some of the best on the CA coast and the Navy has it all to them self, which is really nice. The park is a bit run down though. The power poles are in need of an overhaul, and the water pressure is a bit high, but did not hurt our rig. They have cable at all the sites as well as internet. They also have wireless internet, although I would only work from time to time, ad that to the list of things to overhaul. The base is small and looks a little run down as well. It has a small NEX and gym. The Port Hueneme base is located about thirty minutes away and houses the commissary, and the big NEX, so if you’re not up for a drive bring supplies with you. The Beach Motel has small snacks to buy, but at a huge mark up. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful although the new camp host Don can be a little intrusive, and is not very customer oriented. If the upper management would put some money in the park and hotel the place would be the most sought after place in CA. I recommend the park it can be a lot of fun for anyone of any age but do recommend you bring enough supplies to last your visit.
