Beautiful and Serene

New Brighton is a jewel on the California coast. Camping is on a bluff above beach and you must walk down stairs to get to the beach. Camping in the woods with the beach below is perfect. The bathrooms are clean and the campsites spacious. New Brighton is a must go to Camping spot.
