If you mean camping facilities, there are a couple of state parks along the beach, but I'm under the impression that they are reserved online virtually from the moment they become available. Check rvparkreviews. There are private parks in the general area.

If RVing you might check out the San Diego County Parks. It's been a long time since I lived down there and I don't know if any of the county parks are near Carlsbad but SD County is noted for good RV parks.

Paradise by the Sea RV in Oceanside is nice. Very friendly staff. You can stay at State park just south of Carlsbad. It is on the ocean. Have to make reservation on line. It has a great view. Just make sure you pull your car into the campground, otherwise they charge you extra for car.

Olive Ave RV Park in Vista, CA is close to most Carlsbad areas and is a lot cheaper. We stayed this past July for a couple nights. This is a fairly new park with swimming pool and across the street from a 7/11

Reviews of Olive St RV often cite the extreme slope of the sites. Only park I've seen where leveling blocks are provided at each site. We drove thru it for future reference. Saw every size and style of RV. (Big Class A's with front wheels driven 6-10 inches up blocks.) Looks like you have a towable. I have limited experience with them, but having your front raised significantly probably would not be problematic. Not sure a 7/11 across the street is a plus in my book, but the surrounding neighborhood is what we often find in urban areas. Not where I would buy a house, but safe enough when exercising due caution. (Million dollar homes do not want 'trailer park', even one with million dollar DP's, zoned as their neighbors.) Having said that, were it not for the extreme slope of the sites, we'd stay there in a heart beat.
