Camping is the most intimate way to enjoy Santa Catalina Island’s rugged beauty. However, to protect the island’s unique environment, the following rules and regulations apply to all Santa Catalina Island campgrounds. Please observe these guidelines as fully as possible.
The Two Harbors Campground offers two varieties of camping: regular tent camping and unique tent cabins. The campground sits on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean at Catalina Island's Isthmus, just a quarter-mile outside the village of Two Harbors.
Santa Catalina Island ’s Boat-In Campsites allow you to enjoy true seclusion along the amazing Pacific coast. There are 17 sites at nine locations around the northeast shore of Avalon . These campsites can only be reached by boat or kayak, and you must pack in your own equipment and supplies.
The Hermit Gulch Campground on Catalina Island is Avalon’s only camping facility. Located 1.5 miles from the Avalon boat landing, the campground is situated on a tree-lined grassy field in Avalon Canyon, near the Wrigley Memorial and Botanical Garden. Hermit Gulch offers pretty views of the surrounding hills and access to hiking trails nearby.**Tent Cabins available at Two Harbors and Hermit Gulch campgrounds, only.
