Jalama Walk-In Sites


Because the situation with the Coronavirus Pandemic remains fluid, we have made some modifications to our rules for the health and safety of all.

  • Camping is strictly limited to reservations only.
  • Walk-in camping will not be allowed.
  • We are NOT accepting JALAMA CABIN reservations at this time.
  • New Jalama Beach reservations require a 2-night minimum.

Jalama Beach offers sixteen walk-in sites (nine basic and seven partial hook-up) that are first-come, first-served.  These sites may not be reserved online, through the Call Center, or through the Jalama Gate.

During the peak season, holiday weekends, and other busy times, walk-in sites will be assigned with a wait list. Gate staff will create a wait list for camp-call as early as 8:00AM when the gate opens. Customers must be present in the park to add their name to the list each day, and names will not be transferred to the next day's wait list. At 1:00PM staff will know how many sites are available for new campers to register in to. Please do not call the gate before 1:00PM. Due to the large volume of calls, any messages left may not be returned until the following day. Staff will announce the available sites at 3:00PM to those persons on the wait list in order. You must be present at the camp call to get a site. As with all reservations, the person whose name appears on the list must be the same person registering and checking in to the site. Once a walk-in site is sold, it must be occupied by a tent, trailer and/or vehicle.

Generally, walk-in site availability is greater earlier in the week, and any customer with a reservation will not be allowed to transfer to a walk-in site.
