Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park is the envy of state parks nation-wide. You can’t beat waterfalls dropping over 80 foot cliffs into the Pacific Ocean, or endless coastal trails that weave above the bluffs. Nothing says Big Sur camping like waking up to dramatic view of the Pacific, but if you ever get sick of the magical coastal scenery, Julia Pfeiffer Burns extends from the coastline all the way up to the nearby ridges, some of them 3,000 feet high. Take a break from the coast to enjoy redwood, madrone and chaparral trees, and enjoy backcountry hiking when you explore this park’s extensive trail system. Looking to stretch your sea legs? A 1,680-acre marine reserve is one of the little-known gems in the area, making Julia Pfeiffer Burns camping the best around.



Julia Pfeiffer Burns Campground is the place to stay in Big Sur (or, the nation!), and is a popular destination year-round, so you’ll need to book early... Like, the first person to book 7-months in advance at 7am early. With only two sites to book at Julia Pfeiffer Burns Campground, there’s plenty of seclusion here, with excellent views of the Big Sur coastline visible from most areas. It’s the perfect place to relax after a long day of exploring the tall ridges and ancient trees. If you score a spot here, get ready to be lulled to sleep to the sounds of the Pacific.
