Campfire Restaurant

2725 State Street, Carlsbad, CA, United States

 

When you think of camping, what image comes to mind? Childhood fishing? Building a campfire? Roasting s’mores?

After all, don’t we all know that a camping trip done right revolves around food… and the campfire? That’s the exact feeling, memory and emotion Carlsbad’s most unique restaurant, Campfire, is bringing to all who gather there.
