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.
