The park has 1.5 miles of beach for swimming, surfing, windsurfing, surf fishing and beachcombing. The beach also has tide pools, coastal caves and reefs for exploring. Giant sycamores shade the main campgrounds. The park also features back-country hiking.

Nature walks and campfire programs are offered and a small visitor center has interpretive displays. During the summer, children's programs are available.
History of the Area
The park was named after Leo Carrillo (1880-1961), actor, preservationist and conservationist, served on the California Beach and Parks commission for eighteen years, and was instrumental in the state's acquisition of the Hearst property at San Simeon. He was related by blood and marriage to a long line of distinguished original Californians. Leo's greatest fame came from his portrayal of Pancho, the sidekick to Duncan Renaldo's Cisco Kid, an early 1950's TV series.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
September 10 tree fallen across Malibu Springs Trail by Ernie
Today, 10 Sept. 2013, about a mile up from Mulholland Dr., my fellow hikers and I encountered a tree that had fallen across the Malibu Springs Trail. Passage around this is quite difficult. I suggest that a crew be sent there with a chain saw to clear the trail. Ernie Scheuer, Sierra Club Hike Leader
