Catalina Island is an outdoor lover's paradise. And there's no better way to experience this beautiful island than to opt outside and camp! Catalina Island Company offers campgrounds in Avalon and on the west end of the island in Two Harbors. There are also great opportunities to explore more remote parts of Catalina Island at Black Jack Campground, just below 2,097-foot Mt. Orizaba, Catalina Island’s highest peak; Parson's Landing, a secluded beach campground seven miles west of Two Harbors; and Little Harbor on the backside of Catalina, rated "One of the Best Campgrounds in the West" by Sunset Magazine. Or for a truly unique experience, explore our Boat-in Camping sites. If you’d like to get back nature, but don’t care to bring your gear, we offer Tent Cabins in both Avalon and Two Harbors (in addition to regular tent sites). Whatever campground or site you choose, we hope you enjoy the island’s never-ending beauty and warm hospitality.
