Most of this state beach is in front of the linear South Carlsbad Campground that fills the void between the sand and the asphalt of Carlsbad Boulevard (Highway 101). The highly desirable campground that boast more than 200 camp spots sits high above the beach on a bluff that is slowly eroding away. If you want to camp here, book way in advance, especially in the summer months.

At the entrance to our Museum, you will notice the acronym “NAMM.” Those initials stand for the National Association of Music Merchants, the not-for-profit association that serves and strengthens the global music products industry. Commonly referred to as NAMM (which rhymes with jam), the association and its world-famous trade shows serve as a hub for people seeking out the newest innovations in musical products, recording technology, and sound and lighting equipment. The NAMM museum – the Museum of Making Music – is located on the first floor of the building which also serves as NAMM’s international headquarters. Founded in 1998 and opened to the public in March 2000, the Museum celebrates the music products industry’s rich history from 1900 to today. Through unique exhibitions, vibrant and varied live music performances, and innovative educational programs, the Museum shares the accomplishments and impact of the people who make, sell, and use musical instruments and products. The Museum is a program division of the NAMM Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and receives operational support from NAMM.

Flower Fields

The fields are a direct result of over 85 years of floral cultivation that began when Luther Gage, an early settler, and grower, settled in the area in the early 1920’s. Mr. Gage introduced Ranunculus seeds and began growing them in his fields next to Frank Frazee’s small vegetable farm in South Oceanside. This started a business called, “Luther Gage Giant Tecolote Ranunculus bulbs”. The name “Tecolote” came from the owls that nested on his property.
