Camping in California is about as diverse as it gets from camping near the lowest point in the United States in the Death Valley desert to the highest point in the lower 48 states at Mt. Whitney in the Inyo Forest. Nearby, you can camp near, and hike among the oldest living organisms in the world, some over 5000 years of age in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest.

Camping in California is about as diverse as it gets from camping near the lowest point in the United States in the Death Valley desert to the highest point in the lower 48 states at Mt. Whitney in the Inyo Forest. Nearby, you can camp near, and hike among the oldest living organisms in the world, some over 5000 years of age in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest. Head west and you’ll be greeted with 1,100 miles of coastline, perhaps most renowned by those looking to pitch a tent or park an RV along the Big Sur coast. City-dwellers take advantage of the micro-climates when camping near San Francisco, and Los Angeles where you can comfortably pitch your tent nearly 365 days a year. Find almost anything your heart desires from bike-camping, wine-camping on vineyards, to snow camping in Sierra huts and yurts to tree-houses galore throughout. Golden in the summer, and often green in the winter, the Golden State welcomes campers with open arms.

Great place for a beginners backpacking trip. We stayed at campsite #6. It was very secluded and quiet. You can walk from the coast camp sites on a short trail to the beach. Huge Beach with beautiful sand and not too many people around.

Abalone Campground is definitely the best campground at this park. Huge towering pine trees! No redwoods but it's got that deep forest feel.
The "Hidden" campsite is easy to spot with the red sign.
The communal kitchen and hang out area!
Cooling off on a warm day.
A cozy, hidden spot to pitch your tent for the night.
