Ever dreamed of unzipping your tent to a rugged coastline with insane ocean views? Yeah...us too! You’re in luck, Gerstle Cove is the place to do this. This most definitely is a small campground (there’s a total of 28 campsites), and because of this, they book up quickly. As far as the layout goes, half of the sites are shaded by beautiful pine trees and the other half is on a grassy meadow. There is access to a system of trails close by, each of which are equally awesome. Each site has the standard picnic table, fire ring, food locker, and access to bathrooms. For coastal camping, it doesn’t get much better than this!

Love this campsite! If you go during the week it feels extra quiet and secluded. You can even hear sea lions faintly barking from the coast while you relax in the woods.

Better in winter than summer. Gets crowded during abalone season; great diving in Gerstle Cove itself. Nice trails right out of camp.

Such an amazing spot. You feel secluded even if the campground is full.

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.

Lock all foodstuffs in your car at night when not cooking or eating. Racoons are mercilous!

Can get windy, foggy and cold in Spring and Summer but some sites have views of the Ocean.
