Campers, steer clear of the stink

December 30, 2007

Amy Hubbard got it right in her article on camping at Carpinteria State Beach ["Wisps of Magic in Carpinteria," Dec. 23]. I have only two things to add. Make every effort to avoid camping across from the sewage treatment plant. The air shifts twice a day, and the smell is absolutely nauseating. Second, a man I met there said he brings "disposable" clothing for himself and his kids because they all get covered in tar. They just throw it away when they leave. It is difficult to remove tar from clothing, but vegetable oil takes if off your skin and many other things.
