Driving by I would not have known this was closed. It looked to be in bad shape.
We stayed in a large cabin room with one master bedroom, one guest room, one bathroom w/ shower, a living room with a flat screen tv, one couch, and an outter area w/ one hot tub. This place was great!!!!!!!!!
Very scenic and remote. You can see the infamous San Andreas earthquake fault line
It's a very nice place. It's small and have 4 showers and about 6 flushable toilets. To shower It's by coins and each coin is 2mins. I was there labor day weekend and was full and windy but great and quiet no issues at all.
Small campground, great for stargazing. As of 08/23/21, there are no potable water available. There are vault toilets available on site that's pretty descent w/ toilet paper provided.
The deduction is due to SO MANY FLIES! I have bug screens installed in the van and it could literally break…
This is a really good place to camp. It’s far from anything major so the night sky is very visible. In August, as other reviews mention, there are a lot of flies from sun up to sun down. Harmless but annoying. Book in advance if you can. I arrived in the evening at 8/9pm on a Friday (busy season…
Great camp sites. Definitely better to tent or car camp in rather than use an RV. During the summer, it is hot and muggy attracting lots of bugs. The road to get in is very narrow. This would have probably been a more enjoyable experience in fall or early spring.
The campsites are too close together. Beach access is across the hwy and not the safest to get too.
The road up to the campsite is incredibly narrow and there isn’t a ton of signage. We ended up camping on a gravel lot off the side of a turn off road. The view was AMAZING and the sunset was gorgeous as well. Not a terrible spot, but not ideal either. About 1 hour from the closest beaches.
Basic but nice. Five stars for closeness to Yosemite. Small campground but only one other campsite was taken when we there. First come first served. We stayed only one night but would have stayed longer had we not already reserved a site at another campground nearby (which was overpriced for a…
Every time I have gone I was there by myself or with friends. You can hunt fish hike horse back riding and wake up to the sound of birds. I have seen bears and mountain lions so be prepared for that. Never been attacked by them. Bring your own water.
We live about two hours away and couldn’t believe we hadn’t heard about this spot before. We came on a monday and the crowds had just left so we had most of the site to ourselves. The hosts were generous and offered to see us wood but there was plenty of wood from the previous campers (plus we had…
Neat and clean campsite. They have pay showers which are decent. Less than 1/2 mile walk to the beach. Bike or hiking trails.
It was pretty busy and bustling when we stayed, but definitely a cozy spot. Great hikes nearby and the beach is just a short walk away! We saw lots of cute animals during our stay. The campsite pass also gets you free parking at pretty much any beach along the PCH.
We loved this campground destination! Out of all of our trips so far (12) this is our favorite! Let’s start with the drive - it’s a long windy road to get up to the campground. One lane, two way street but it’s very doable! You pass the nondescript Neverland Ranch too. Beautiful drive to the…
