Mixed Use

    Jalama Beach Park - A favorite with locals who want to get away from, well, getting away.  Camping is first come, first served.  It makes getting a space a bit of a challenge but eager campers line up every day. 
Cachuma Lake Recreation Area - Just over the Santa Ynez Mountains, this large lake offers something for just about every member of your camping party.
Carpinteria State Park - Set along the ocean, within walking distance of town, and voted one of the best campgrounds in the country.
El Capitan State Park - a beautiful, sprawling ocean-front park that offers swimming, hiking, biking trails, and spectacular views.
Gaviota State Park - set between ocean and mountains, this ocean-front park features a fishing pier and hot springs. 
Los Padres National Forest - This enormous National Forest offers a diverse selection of camping facilities - including those that you need to hike to, as well as drive.
Refugio State Park - probably the personal favorite of more than a few local Santa Barbarans, this park is unique and has a 'get away from it' feel.

Tent Only

Channel Islands - You need to get a boat and plan ahead, but it's one of those truly unique camping experiences you won't find anywhere else.

RV Only

Sunrise RV Park  This RV campground is conveniently located right off the highway and just a few blocks from the beach, right between Santa Barbara and Montecito. 

Large Groups

Live Oak County Camp Grounds - for those get-togethers up to 1,500 people.  There is space for events.
