Nacimiento campground offers remote camping close to Monterrey and Big Sur. If you're looking to escape the crowded coast, this small campground is the spot, and it's more about the journey than the destination to this site (though, both are the cream of the crop)—trust us, when you go, you'll understand. Peaceful sites are located in groves of oak and a small creek is nearby. Bring what you need because it's a long way up, down, and around, and you'll never want to leave this hush hush spot.

This is a perfect option for peak times in Big Sur, when camp spots is hard to find. There are plenty of camping options situated right on the cliff, with beautiful views.
If you are up for a challenge, continue up the road all the way to Prewitt Ridge. Very few know about it, and it is one of the most beautiful car camping spots in that area. Four-wheel drive definitely recommended, as the last section of the drive is on a rocky dirt road.
