Spend the night on a bluff with ocean views or beside a stream, camping in Big Sur offers you the chance to explore untamed nature. Stretching between Carmel and San Simeon, this area is bordered by the Santa Lucia Mountains on the East and the Pacific Ocean on the west. Cabins and camping near Big Sur offer you a variety of locations from seaside bluffs to rich forest scenery. While the area doesn't have many local residents, it's a popular destination for nature lovers so many camping options exist. Wake up next to majestic redwood trees and stunning mountain views. Just south of Carmel, Limekiln State Park provides year round camping spots among the redwoods with stunning views of the California coastline. At Ventana Campground, spend the nights in redwood canyon and along the banks of Post Creek. Dotted along the Route 1, private and public campgrounds make exploring this region fun and unique.
