Description

Carlsbad State Beach is also known as Tamarack State Beach. The headquarters for the beach is located at Carlsbad Blvd. and Tamarack Ave. Carlsbad State Beach runs from the power plant near Cannon Road north all the way into Oceanside. Walking the beach to Oceanside can take several hours, especially with kids.

This beach doesn't have camping. South Carlsbad State Beach at Carlsbad Blvd. and Poinsettia Lane has camping. The camping there isn't exactly on the beach, but on a bluff above the beach. The beach is accessbile by stairs.

As beaches go, Carlsbad State Beach had all of the necessary parts for a few hours of fun: sand and surf. When we visited in October on a weekday there were many people enjoying it, so I'm sure the beach is very crowded in the summer.
