Find 5,000 acres of pristine beauty in the northern area of Big Sur at Andrew Molera State Park. With beautiful coastal hills and ocean access from a stunning cove, Andrew Molera is a great park for those who wish to combine their love of camping with a love for the sea. Andrew Molera State Park is situated close to a rivermouth break, so bring your surfboard! Featuring meadows, beaches, and vibrant hillsides, Andrew Molera State Park camping offers ample opportunities for hiking, surfing, beachcombing, or simply sitting down and taking it all in. Be sure to soak-in the scenery on the bluff overlooking the point where the Big Sur River meets the ocean. You’re likely to walk back to your campsite with the contented feeling that life doesn’t get much better.



Andrew Molera Trail Camp is the only campground in the area to operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Choose among 24 walk-in campsites in a grassy meadow, none of which offer much privacy due to the open nature of the campground. Each campsite is about a .3 mile walk from the parking lot, so come prepared to trek supplies into your site. Sites come equipped with a picnic table, fire ring, and access to a food storage locker to keep animals at bay. To truly experience all in nature that Big Sur has to offer, Andrew Molera State Park camping is not to be missed.
