Camping on the Central Coast provides you with a myriad of choices from beach camping to camping in national forests. Stretching from Point Mugu to Monterey Bay, the California Central Coast encompasses six counties and lies to the north of Los Angles and the south of San Francisco. With a variety of terrain, camping on the Central Coast offers you the chance to camp on the beach tonight and rub elbows with the artists at Carmel-by-the-Sea tomorrow. Beach lovers can find comfortable camping with flush toilets and showers near Monterey and Pismo or enjoy lake camping around Lopez Lake, Lake Cachuma or Lake Nacimiento. Enjoy camping among the trees and wilderness at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. For off-the-beaten-path camping, load your supplies into a canoe and paddle into the Santa Margarita Lake campsite or pitch your tent at a campsite near the Laguna Seca Raceway.
