If you are in the market for a lesser known primitive campground head to Alder Creek in the Monterrey Ranger District. The views on the drive up from Highway 1 are sure to make your jaws drop. Once you make it to the rustic campsites you can dip your feet in Alder Creek or head out on the Buckeye Trail which offers truly amazing ocean views. Come nightfall get your fire roaring (with your campfire permit in hand) and make a toast to California’s rugged coast.
