Beautiful spot that books months in advance. If you’re lucky you’ll have the whole place to yourself as there are only 2 spaces. They let us slide with five people but typically it allows for 4 people per site. The other campers didn’t show so we had the space to ourselves and it was awesome! I recommend grabbing both if you can.
Ocean (not accessible) sounds, dolphins, giant trees, and complete privacy from the Big Sur foot traffic. There’s no water, and it is hike in/out.. but not far at all..,and you can pull your car up at the top of the short walk for unloading and loading so it really still feels like car camping with a little extra hauling required. Definetly in my top 10, a must do!
One of the best campsites ever! Spot #1 is right at the edge of the cliff with nonstop loud crashing waves below. Has a picnic table, fire pit, bear box, and modern pit toilets. no water. The picnic table is perfectly situated for sunset watching. The nearby trails are closed due to the fire a while back, but there's a lot to do a short drive away.
