El Capitan Canyon

Address 11650 Calle Real, Santa Barbara, CA Map, Tel 866-352-2729 Call, Website

This upscale "camping" resort is great for families who want to experience the natural beauty of the California coast without the effort of really roughing it. El Capitan has something for everyone -- easy or challenging hikes into the foothills, a walk to one of the most striking beaches in California, a pool and playground, llamas, horses, bike riding -- it really can't be beat. You can stay in a safari tent equipped with comfortable beds with luxurious bed linens, down comforters, and daily maid service. Or, you can opt for a cabin with small kitchen and plenty of sleeping options. We loved the fact that resort staff will drop off firewood and fire starters to make it easy to build a campfire for s'mores. El Capitan is a delightful family alternative to the fancier resorts of Santa Barbara and a great outdoor experience. more
