Living here suggestions are:
Flying Flags, fully supported, close to really good food and wineries, solvang, etc; Cachuma very little water and taking your camper over the pass, a pain, tight traffic locals are in a hurry-but its pretty dry; Gaviota state beach-very windy; Refugio, primitive/dry camping-beach is rocky right now after heavy ocean action; El Cap same, but beach is always rocky; Ocean Mesa, high end, all pull thrus, nice pool, beach is across hi way, about a mile walk, so worth it, the el Cap Canyon "glamping" is just a path down the hill and they have a little restaurant. SB is only about 20-30 minutes from there. SB camping really limited. Navigating SB can be very frustrating. Next destination is Carpinteria State Beach. Cool beach town, good food, dry camping, pretty sure it's basic. May have a couple of plug ins-not sure.

Carpenteria State Beach is great. They do require reservations through "Reserve "

Many thanks for great suggestions. Being a weekend meant some places wanted two-nights stay. Others did not have pull-through (to lazy to have to disconnect and reconnect our dingy). Yet others not quite a comfortable halfway point to Escondido We ended up at Mountain View Park, Santa Paula, just a few miles north of US 101 and through some wonderful citrus country. Very clean, level park, and an easy drive, even in late afternoon.
