It is possible to have a campfire at the campsite, but you have to bring your own fire ring and it has to be eight or more inches off the pavement. A couple cinder blocks and an old washer tub took care of that for us. The campsites have water and electric, and we got a couple dozen Los Angeles TV stations over the antenna, so Sherry's father, Art, joined us for dinner and watching the football game on Sunday. My folks and my brother came out for dinner and campfire on Saturday night.
Scooby hates camping so she stayed home. Maisie, however, loves camping and jumped into the RV as soon as I opened the door in the driveway. She is still a pup so there was some separation anxiety whenever we weren't all together, but she's figuring it out.
Bolsa Chica is a great base camp, and a safe place to crash for the night. We'll certainly be back.
