I guess it all depends on what you're comparing it to. Certainly it's not as good as the islands but, hey, it's not bad for beach diving. I do about 50 dives a year there on average. (I'm surprised you spent 1,000+ hours there if you thought it was so mediocre.)

There are plenty of fun spots that are easy access and easy to swim to unless you're really out of shape. There's one spot usually has a resident BSB (although I haven't seen it in a while) and there are many places that produce bugs.

We'll also have the option to drive to Palos Verdes and hit some more good spots down there. Unfortunately, there aren't too many (any?) camping options down that way.

As for the campsite, it might turn out to be a little uptight but the state park rangers can be too (and they carry guns!) In talking to the owners of the site, they said they are usually reasonably empty in October and the tent camping area is fairly well away from the RV crowd so I'm hoping it won't be too restrictive.

We'll let you know how it turns out ....
