Lift your spirit up at the Hi Mountain Campground, close to the Santa Lucia and Garcia Wildernesses. Go for a hike, set your hammock up in some oaks, or spit whiskey into the campfire. Out in the rugged backcountry, the choice is yours!
Camped here the night before a festival at Avila beach. (not the most practical thing to do but i hate over corded campgrounds) As stated by julia this campground has a fun dirt road that requires a little bit of off roading skill. Your prius won't get you up here. When we arrived there were 3 campgrounds taken of the 6 that i counted. They are all somewhat close together. This seem to be a popular hunting campground. The vault toilets were some of the worst i have seen as of late but they are there non the less. There is a hidden spring for water but its a difficult find you are better off packing some in. I camped here 8-13-16 and the weather was pretty warm and dry. didn't use my sleeping bag at all.
