Anderson Camp is a primitive campground, a perfect place to stop for the night while you ambitiously venture on the Lost Coast. If you’re starting from the bottom, now you’re here… This is the closest campground to Usal Beach, which is pretty far. There are tons of interesting gulches around the area and an incredible view of the ocean (and the Big White Rock)!

A truly magical off the beaten path place. Prepare for quite a bit of elevation gain/loss with the reward of amazing views. Didn't budget sufficient time from Usal Beach to make it to Anderson but not a problem as you can backcountry camp just about anywhere off the trail. Expect large temp swings and be dazzled by the only view along the California coast where there is no light pollution; just you and the heavens glimmering above.

Fellow camper set up camp right on the bluff's edge. Most epic view from a camp site.Ran out of daylight about halfway to the beach campground, so set up camp just off the trailWhere the 1 leaves the coast of California for a good while on the southern edge of the lost coastBeginning the trail up into the forest
