Listen raccoons. You think you're gonna sneak up up on me? This is not my first time at the rodeo. Don't look at me with your cute little faces and turn your heads to the side like we're friends. WE'RE NOT FRIENDS.

I got lucky here once with a walk up site reserved for hikers/bikers, only to find the reason it was open was because of the furry little terrors who lived in the bushes behind it. JOKE WAS ON THEM because we wedged our cooler under the picnic table and then piled rocks on top of it. We still woke up to thieving little paw prints. I swear those stinkers would have climbed into our tent for the Bulleit if not for our dog, who is completely useless at only 3lbs soaking wet, but is a fairly effective coon alarm.

Raccoons are tenacious and travel in packs here! Store your food very securely here because they run wild. We woke up to sooty black raccoon prints all over our camper, the picnic table, our cooler and everything else we left out.

Book campsite #22! This was the only site available by a fluke and the ranger said we were lucky to get it because it's the most popular spot. RIGHT on the cliff overlooking the ocean. Second all reviews about the raccoons - they even opened our water!!

This is a favorite campground of mine. Keep in mind-there is no water so bring your own. Pit toilets only, no showers.

This is one of the sickest campgrounds ever. Good luck finding a spot.

Plan to get there before 8am on a Friday if you want a weekend spot. It's incredibly popular but worth it! But they've got hiker/biker sites that don't fill up quickly if you don't need your car (or park somewhere else). Be sure to hike down to the beach!

Ditto to Nick's comment about Raccoons. We were awoken by a midnight raid because one of our group left some food out. We shoo'ed them away, but they egged our campsite before they left (not kidding). If your coolers aren't securable, store them in cars.

Two more quick tips:
Poison Oak abounds, so keep an eye out, especially if you have bets with you.
Two cars allowed per campsite, but road parking is usually easy to find for extra cars.
