According to a lot of reports we've seen lately, more and more people are going camping as part of their recreational plans. so last month we asked about when and where you - our readers - like to go camping.
One-third of those who voted say they camp in a tent and the majority like to camp at the beach, which is a great place to pitch a tent without worrying about ending up with your bed on top of a rock.
So, if you want to go camping at the beach, in a tent (or otherwise), we've been to every campground along the California coast that claims to be on the beach. It's probably not surprising that some of those just have a glimpse of the beach, are cut off from it by a road or railroad - or are on top of a cliff and not on the sand. We sifted out the ones that are really beach campground and you'll find the list here.
