El Capitan Canyon
These comfortable cedar cabins—outfitted with Wi-Fi and other 21st-century amenities—are near El Capitan State Beach, a 17-mile drive from Santa Barbara. This elegant camping spot is set in a 2,500-acre nature preserve. The 96 tin-roofed cedar cabins have private bathrooms, jacuzzis, sleeping lofts, fire pits, and kitchenettes, while the 26 canvas-walled safari tents on wooden decks with handcrafted twig furniture and woven rugs share common facilities. After exploring tidal pools on the stony Pacific shore, unwind during an in-room Barefoot Deep Massage. The campground offers surfing lessons and kayak outings in the Pacific; less adventurous visitors can take yoga classes or float in the heated pool
