Location & Address
Live Oak Campground

Santa Barbara, CA, 93105 Directions to Event
Live Oak Campground (HC 59, Hwy 154, Santa Barbara, CA 93105) nestled between the verdant hills of the Santa Ynez Mountains and the river of the same name.

Take your best route to Highway 101, head towards Santa Barbara. Take the State Street, Highway 154 exit. Head towards the mountains. Follow it for about 10 miles over the hill and back down into the valley. You will be almost to the bottom of the grade when you will turn right. It is easy to miss the entrance and have to circle around. As soon as you see the greens for Rancho San Marcos Golf Course to your right, slow down. The camp shares its entrance off Highway 154 with Rancho San Marcos Golf Course. Take a left once you’ve passed through that entryway.
