    Fall Camping at Doheny

    This place get busy during the summer months and we finally got reservations in the fall. Doheny is a ‘Dry’ campground. They have a few water spigots, two restrooms with token operated showers, each site had picnic tables and fire pits. The attraction is camping next to the beach for surfing, swimming, fishing, sand play for kids and allowed to have your dog while on a leash. We did not plan on cooking, so having restaurants and fast foods nearby was great. Only thing I didn’t like was the sites were not angled and the road was narrow. The waste dump is outside of the campground. Some owners walked their dog without a leash. There were some rabbits and squirrels to keep my dog interested.
