El Capitan State Beach

In August 2018 we decided to escape the heat wave at home by taking our RV to El Capitan State Beach, just north of Goleta, CA. When we made reservations on the ReserveCalifornia website, it showed only a couple sites available, but one of them looked nice, so we booked it. When we arrived at the campground, there were very few campers, and a ranger said that they get a lot of "no shows". If those people don't call to cancel, then they lose their money, and those campsites sit empty.
