Glamping at El Capitan Canyon, 15 miles north of Santa Barbara


The Canyon Vision

Santa Barbara Beach Camping

Today we consider it a great honor to carry on the role of protecting and sharing the beauty of the California coast with our guests. Our goal is to nurture an environment in harmony with the nature and history of the Canyon while allowing our guests to enjoy a relaxing Santa Barbara beach camping experience. The camp is designed to be an antidote to all that is excessive, formal, artificial or contrived. By focusing on the essence of things, we hope to offer you a welcomed retreat in tune with the spirit of the Canyon.

El Capitan Campground Resort

Through the decor and amenities, El Capitan campground resort provides a measure of comfort and pampering-from healthy Saturday night dinners to a variety of wellness treatments. But, we have purposely avoided attempting to duplicate the conveniences of home. Instead, we invite you to step outside into the canyon. Smell the wild sage in the early spring blossoming. Observe the monarch butterflies mud-puddling in the fall. Listen to the frogs all year round. There is something for each season. Feel the ocean breeze, see and hear the rhythmic waves. This is a personal encounter with nature here at El Capitan Canyon resort. Look, marvel, be enlightened. And take home a sense of serenity.

Activities Directory

Southern California Coast Lodging

Something for everyone isn’t just a saying at El Capitan Canyon – it’s our mantra. Our spectacular southern California coast lodging with magnificent views of the Gaviota Coast, Pacific Ocean and Santa Ynez Mountains provides a myriad of opportunities for activities, recreation and adventure.
Lodging guests have unique opportunities to commune with nature for exploration, entertainment and, of course, relaxation. Some activities are complimentary, while others carry a small fee. Additionally, our staff will gladly arrange off-site day trips with our local tour and adventure partners so you can experience all that Santa Barbara has to offer.

Santa Barbara Coastal Beach Camping

Throughout the seasons, guests can hike the canyon, explore the beach and surrounding areas on trails and bike paths or just relax and enjoy Santa Barbara coastal beach camping at its best. Or try your hand on our challenge ropes course with both low and high ropes, a great confidence building exercise.
Santa Barbara’s famous wine country is less than an hour’s drive from El Capitan Canyon so be sure to schedule in some tasting time.
On property, we offer activities such as yoga, story-telling, Saturday night barbecues and concerts in the summer, stargazing, etc. Or, perhaps perfect the art of doing absolutely nothing at all but getting lost in a great novel, lounge by the heated swimming pool or indulge in a massage treatment.

Canyon Concert Series

Saturday evenings, May through September, guests and neighbors gather at the front Market Lawn for a night of blues, jazz and bluegrass. Admission is free to guests staying overnight in the Canyon, and a fireside BBQ dinner is just $20 per person ($14 per child). Click for a schedule of performers.

Beach Cruiser Bikes

Complimentary adult-size beach cruiser bikes are available for guests on a first come, first served basis. Call the Canyon Kiosk via (866) 352-2729 with any questions.
