The vibe at Gerstle Cove Campground
Drop some Gerstle Cove Campground knowledge on us.
I know this isn't a review buuuut I'm wondering about anyone's experience with the first come first serve here? I'm headed there Saturday and want to know my odds (if any) of getting a site and how early I should try to get there by.
Amazing views, but EXTREMELY windy. If you want a short walk to the ocean, this is a great spot. I would suggest you to choose one of the camp sites the farthest from the ocean. It will make your camp cooking much more enjoyable and less windy.
Nice and roomy campground, bathrooms were clean. We walked from our campsite to the marine reserve and spent the day climbing over and around the tide pools. Saw a lot of cool stuff like abalone and seals. Lots of trees around the sites so not ideal for stargazing, but we still got a pretty great view before the clouds or fog rolled in.
