Staying at Ocean Mesa: Everything You Need to Know
Ocean Mesa near Santa Barbara is a nature oasis with yurts, safari tents, beach camping and more. Here’s everything you need to know before you go!
Do you love the outdoors, but you dislike camping? Or do you like camping along the coast, but you have a hard time making reservations months ahead of time?
Then allow me to introduce you to the stunning Ocean Mesa.
Ocean Mesa is a gorgeous nature resort located on 300 acres along the Pacific Coast in Santa Barbara county.
Thankfully, we stumbled upon this eco-friendly resort while planning a trip to the central coast. Scott and I have always wanted to camp along the coast in Santa Barbara, but we could never manage to get reservations at any of the always-booked state parks.
Luckily, while searching for a campground that had availability, we found Ocean Mesa.
As you may know from our previous posts, we love to camp but we also love to relax and forget about our busy schedules from time to time. Ocean Mesa turned out to be the perfect combination of experiencing nature and the relaxing getaway that we desperately needed.
Camping can sometimes feel like a lot of work if you are just looking to sit back and relax without any responsibilities. Camping can definitely be relaxing, but you still have to cook your own food, do the dishes, and light and stoke the campfire. You can still do all of these things at Ocean Mesa, but the greatest part is that you don’t have to!
You can enjoy nature at its best while enjoying a comfy, warm bed or you can “rough it” in one of their many tent camping sites overlooking the ocean. There is literally something for every type of traveler.
