Directions: The turnoff of Palo Colorado Road is 2 miles north of the famous picturesque Bixby Creek Bridge, about bout 11 miles south of Carmel on the Pacific Coast Highway 1; there is an area at the foot of Palo Colorado Road is known as Notley's Landing, it was a populated village from 1898 to 1907 but not much there now; turn left here and head up the curvy Palo Colorado Road. Follow Palo Colorado Road 8 miles; Palo Colorado Road heads uphill southeast, it one lane with pullouts in places winds its way up a narrow canyon through a Redwood grove to the campground at 2,100 feet.

Activities: Ventana wilderness exploration for hikers, horseback riders, mountain bikers, and four-wheelers, Skinner Ridge Trail and Pico Blanco BSA Road provide access from Bottchers Gap Campground to the Los Padres National Forest and Ventana Wilderness backcountry.
Close by Points of Interest: Skinner Ridge Trail and Pico Blanco BSA Road provide access from Bottchers Gap Campground to the Los Padres National Forest and Ventana Wilderness backcountry. In addition to the wilderness activities for fun and exploration the many offerings of Grarrapata State Park, Point Lobos, Carmel and Monterey are not too far to the north. A great restaurant the Rocky Point Restaurant is just south on the Pacific Coast Highway; Point Sur Light Station, for a close beach and horseback riding there is Andrew Molera State Park and Big Sur isn't too far south either.
Pets & Misc. Regulations: IN THE CAMPGROUNDS, dogs must be on a leash and under control. Tie your dog up in a shady spot and give it lots of attention to minimize barking. Do Not leave your dog unattended in your campsite. ON THE TRAIL: If you bring your dog hiking, keep it under verbal or physical restraint at all times. The Los Padres National Forest is a multiple-use forest, which means you and your dog may meet horseback riders, mountain bikers, and four-wheelers on the trail. Use a leash in crowded areas. Hiking is hard work for a dog, especially if it's not used to long hikes in hot weather. Watch your dog for signs of stress and fatigue, and give it plenty water and rest.
Helpful Hints: No reservations first come, first served; arrive early, talk to other campers you may see packing. Bring your own water and firewood, no water spigots and only limited firewood available; use only firewood that is "dead and down,"; should you forget bottled water it can be purchased from the camp manager.

Mile 21 Andrew Molera California State State Park Campground

Park Description: A relatively undeveloped California State Park in the spectacular Big Sur costal area; the region's largest state park (4,800 acres) much of which is available only to hikers, bicyclists, and equestrians who take advantage of the miles of available trails. Even the campground is hike, bike or horse ride in although only about 1/3 of a mile. The campground is fairly open, there is little shade available, it is really the other features and activities which make this park popular not the campground.
Location: The park is 20 miles south of Carmel on Highway 1; Latitude/Longitude: 36.2833 / -121.8333
Directions: Just watch for the sign on the Pacific Coast Highway 1, the park is about 21 miles south of the Carmel Bridge, a few miles north of Big Sur or 78 miles north of Cambria.
Camping Facilities: A 1/3 mile trail leads to 24 identified sites which are $25.00 per night. Camping is allowed only at these sites with a maximum of four people per site. Each campsite has its own fire ring and picnic table with closing food box, the sink, flush toilets, and water spigots are shared. The water from the spigots doesn't taste that good you may want to bring bottled drinking water and you should bring your own fire wood or you can purchase it there for $7 per bundle, you won't find much wood to gather.
Activities: The Ventana Wilderness Society has a Discovery Center which includes exhibits on local wildlife (including the California condor) and a bird banding lab, there are sometimes tours of the park explaining the flora and fauna that are unique to the area. Miles of trails for hikers, a waterfall (Highbridge Falls), horseback riders, mountain bikers (TRAIL MAP). There are guided horse tours of the park and all tours go to the beach. Four-wheelers, will find the south end of the Coast Road just across Highway 1 from the entrance to the park leading to the Los Padres National Forest and Ventana Wilderness backcountry. The Big Sur River passes through the park offering wading and swimming. There is fishing in both the ocean and river and surfing in the ocean as well. There is a year round waterfall, reliable surfing and a historic log cabin: Historic Cooper Log Cabin.
Close by Points of Interest: : In addition to the in-park activities for fun and exploration the many offerings of Grarrapata State Park, Point Lobos, Carmel and Monterey are not too far to the north. A great restaurant the Rocky Point Restaurant is just north on the Pacific Coast Highway and so is the historic Point Sur Light Station. Big Sur itself is just a short drive south. The south end of the Coast Road is located across Highway 1 from the entrance to the park; this unpaved road travels inland, bypassing the mouths of Bixby Creek and the Little Sur River, crossing their canyons at higher elevations. A high-clearance vehicle is required, and a 4-wheel drive vehicle recommended.
Pets & Misc. Regulations: Dogs are not allowed whatsoever in Trail Camp, on any trails, or at the beach; leashed dogs are only allowed in the developed areas, which include the main parking lot and roadways to the adjacent historical buildings area Molera Ranch House, Ornithology Lab, and Molera Trail Rides complex. Please contact the park for additional information.
Helpful Hints: The water from the spigots doesn't taste that good you may want to bring bottled drinking water and you should bring your own fire wood or you can purchase it there for $7 per bundle, you won't find much wood to gather. Since this is a walk-in campground you can often find a space here during the busy days when other Big Sur coast campgrounds are full.

Mile 26 Sykes Hot Springs Trail Head Big Sur Forest Service Station

This Sykes Hot Springs Campground listing is only for the hardy and adventurous the other campgrounds on in this directory are on paved roads and can be easily reached by RV's or passenger cars; for those of you who like to backpack in Sykes Hot springs Camping is probably the most popular Big Sur backcountry trail camp adventure; if off the beaten path camping is something that interests you should check out this forestry map (www.fs.fed.us...) which shows the locations of well over 50 Big Sur (Ventana or Silver Peak) wilderness campgrounds. If you e-mail me I will give you my favorite Big Sur back country camp but I won't publish the name and location of this hidden jewel of a Big Sur backcountry escape campsite.

Other Recommended Weekend Ventana Wilderness Trips: Weekend loops are tricky in the Ventana Wilderness. They're possible, but often involve road hiking. It may be best to hike in and retrace your steps back out. Salmon Creek is my favorite trail, Estrella, Spruce, Dutra Flat, and Turkey Springs my favorite hike in camps.
3 to 5 day outing: One of my favorites would be: - Botcher's Gap to Pat Springs - Pat Springs to Double Cone and Back - Pat Springs to Botcher's Gap; Ventana Double Cone trail is mostly high on the ridge offering sweeping scenic views of the Ventana Wilderness.

Before you venture into the Ventana or Silverpeak Wilderness Areas you should always check in with the forums at Ventana Wilderness Alliance to get the latest trail and wilderness campground reports.

Mile 53 Kirk Creek State Park Campground

Description: Kirk Creek is a beautiful campground on a 100 foot Big Sur coastal bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, one of the few campgrounds where you can enjoy seeing the blue Pacific Ocean and magnificent Big Sur coast right from most campsites. Campsites are mixed, there are about 30 campsites total; most all are nice tent campsites, some but not all are suitable for RV's up to and over 30 foot (1 pad is 56 feet long) but no hookups or dump station. This is a very popular campground; half of the campsites are first come first served and half are reservation; when I stayed I paid $22.00 per night $154.00 per week, there was a 8 person and two vehicle limit and two week maximum stay.
Location: Approximately 45 miles north of Cambria, CA and 60 miles south of Carmel, CA. Located on the west side of Pacific Coast Highway 1. 35° 59.401 - 121° 29.701
Directions: It is on the Pacific Coast Highway 1, coming from the south go past Gorda north 8 miles; coming from the north go south past Lucia 4 miles.

Activities: There is a short trail to the beach, beachcombing, surfing and ocean fishing are popular here. From November to February whales are migrating up or down the coast and sightings from the campground are frequent. Just across the Pacific Coast Highway 1 from the campground is a trailhead leading to the Ventana Wilderness.
Close by Points of Interest: Pacific Valley Ranger Station is just south on the inland side of the Pacific Coast Highway One, (805)927-4211. This campground is fairly isolated; the wonderful Nepenthe Restaurant and Phoenix Gift Shop Art Gallery are about 25 scenic miles north and the Henry Miller Memorial Library and Coast Gallery Big Sur are along the way if you want to go sightseeing. Directly across the Hwy. from Kirk Creek campground is the Vicente Flats trailhead leading into the Ventana Wilderness. Within a short drive many trails can be accessed for hiking, backpacking, bicycling, hunting and horseback riding. These trails offer a variety of experiences including waterfalls, groves of Redwood Trees, breathtaking views, meadows and streams. The campground has its own trail to the beach but a short drive north is Mill Creek for a more beach access and a nice picnic area or go a little further for a picnic area with barbecue grills and the biggest nicest white sand beach on the Big Sur coast, Sand Dollar Beach picnic area; you can also bypass the picnic area and day use fees and head straight to the beach after parking along the highway (do park well off the highway though; lookeeloo tourists driving up there).
Pets & Misc. Regulations: Pets allowed pet friendly accommodations at this Big Sur campground. This is a U.S. Forestry Campground, dogs are allowed in the campground, on the trails as well as on the beach.
Helpful Hints: Nearest gas, restaurant, general store is small, expensive and 4 miles north at the Lucia Lodge; closest dump station is 40 miles south to San Simeon State Park. Large amounts of Poison Oak on trails. Best to bring your own firewood although it may be purchased from the camp host.

Mile 53 Nacimiento Campground

Description: Nacimiento Campground is a small campground along the side of a mountain trout stream among the pines and oaks of Big Sur high country, the campground has 8 units, each with a picnic table, fire ring and pedestal barbecue grill. Best as tent campsites not advised for RV's, RV's longer 25 feet not allowed. $10.00 per night 6-8 persons max.

The Nacimiento-Ferguson Road runs from the coast at Kirk Creek on Rt. 1 through the Big Sur high country to King City and US 101 via Jolon Road (County Road G-14), passing through the Hunter-Liggett US Military Reservation. +36° 0' 46.80", -121° 24' 46.80"
Directions: Leaving the coast and traveling up the mountains on Nacimiento-Ferguson Road is an experience in itself, the road is narrow, twisty and steep; I love it in my sports car but I wouldn't want to do it in a big RV or pulling a trailer and it would be even worse going back down; the Nacimiento campground is about only about 11 miles . It would be easier a RV rig with trailer to enter and exit from the east through Hunter-Liggett but this can get confusing. From the U.S. Highway 101 Nacimiento-Fergusson Road can be reached from the King City area at Jolon Road (county road G-14), from the Bradley area at Jolon Road (county road G-18), or from Paso Robles along county road G-14.

You have to pass through Hunter-Liggett military reservation, you will be asked for your driver's license and vehicle registration when you enter at the reservation's gates. You should check by telephone in advance and obtain a good local map before using these roads.
Facilities: Eight campsites among the oaks and pines each with a picnic table, fire ring and pedestal barbecue grill, RV's no longer than 25'. Vault toilets but NO running water at this campground.
Activities: camping, hiking, 4 wheeling, sightseeing, fishing and hunting.
Close by Points of Interest: Wilderness and more wilderness. Within a short drive many trails can be accessed for hiking, backpacking, bicycling, hunting and horseback riding. These trails offer a variety of experiences including water falls, groves of Redwood Trees, breathtaking views, meadows and streams. Mission San Antonio is worth the drive from the campground; it is located on the Fort Hunter Liggett Military Base, it is one of the oldest Missions in California and it offers the Catholic Chapel, a museum, a self guided tour of the original Mission out-buildings locations and grounds, original aqueducts and Indian cemetery; the Hearst Hacienda Guest Lodge and Hacienda Lounge is located there also (Hearst Hacienda Guest Reservations: 831-386-2262).
Pets & Misc. Regulations: Pets allowed pet friendly accommodations at this Big Sur campground. This is a U.S. Forestry Campground, dogs are allowed in the campground and on the trails.
Helpful Hints: The best time to visit this wonderful campground is in-between rains October-June, pick your dates carefully in summer it can be hot and dusty and buggy sometimes late summer fall too. Temperatures can get over 100° in the summer. There is no water at Nacimiento Campground, bring lots of water.

All extra vehicles above 10 are $5.00 each to be paid on arrival and assuming they can safely fit into the designated parking area. This area has vault toilets, water spigots, fire rings, barbeques and picnic tables.
Activities: All sites have grass in them and there is plenty of room for activities, there is a small creek and trails. Close by opportunities for outdoor recreational activities abound.
Close by Points of Interest: Pacific Valley Ranger Station is less than a mile north on the inland side of the Pacific Coast Highway 1.The closest services are at Gorda about 4 miles south, they have a general store, restaurant, gas station, espresso bar, and small motel and rental cottages. Beach access is within a short walk to Sand Dollar Beach, the largest sandy beach in the Big Sur area. It is a very popular spot for surfing, fishing, swimming, beachcombing, exploring, sunbathing, etc. The beach is dog friendly as long as they are on a leash and they are cleaned up after. There are also many trails that can be accessed from the Sand Dollar Beach facility which lead to exploration of the bluffs overlooking the beach and other coves and beaches in the area. Other great beach and ocean shore picnic options are close also; Mill Creek is a short drive north and Willow Creek is just south both offer beach access, restrooms, and nice picnic areas; Willow Creek Road offers the endless possibilities of the Big Sur Ventana wilderness and Plaskett Ridge Road which leads into the Big Sur backcountry is at the southern end of the campground. Within a short drive many trails can be accessed for hiking, backpacking, bicycling, hunting and horseback riding. These trails offer a variety of experiences including waterfalls, groves of Redwood Trees, breathtaking views, meadows and streams.
Pets & Misc. Regulations: This is a U.S. Forestry Campground, dogs are allowed in the campground, on the trails as well as on the beach.
Helpful Hints: I've found that the best to visit the Big Sur Pacific coast is the middle of September though the end of May you don't have to fight the crowds and the fog brings needed moisture it can spoil a nice summer day. Of course should the fog roll in you can always trek inland it it quite beautiful when you above it in the sunshine looking down it. Nearest gas, restaurant, general store is small, expensive and 4 miles south in Gorda; closest dump station is 38 miles south to San Simeon State Park. Large amounts of Poison Oak on trails. Best to bring your own firewood and everything although it may be purchased from the store at Gorda.

Mile 61 Treebones Resort Ocean View Yurt Camping

Description: Distinctive luxury ocean view camping in a stunning southern Big Sur Coastal location. From the reviews it looks like most visitors to Treebones seem to enjoy what the owners call a "unique lodging and dining experience," I would call it luxury camping with a communal camper dinner. Besides the resorts camping options they have a one bedroom guest house with en-suite restroom and kitchenette. Their 16 Yurts are very nice "tents", round fabric covered lattice frames on a platforms furnished with regular furniture a sink and a little gas heater; they also have several nice ocean view walk in campsites where put your own, or a campsite with a round platform tent called a Sibley tent, or they also have campsite with a human nest included, these walk in campsites all have picnic tables and close by water spigots, no campfires or open cook fires are allowed campers can use portable cook stoves on the picnic tables, the extravagant costs of the campsites and Yurts include a self serve waffle breakfast and use of the other Treebones facilities. There is a communal lodge room with a fireplace and a dining room where a meal is served every evening, there are restrooms and showers in this same communal lodge building. There is a heated pool and hot tub, there is also another restroom towards the northeastern corner of the property. The thing that makes this resort unique besides the yurts is the phenomenal coastal bluff location many of the Yurts have decks and the campsites are located to take advantage of the fabulous Pacific Ocean California Coastal views; there are some scattered trees but this property is not forested it is coastal chaparral or brush on a rocky bluff.
Location: Treebones is just a short distance off Pacific Coast Highway One (you can easily see the distinctive yurts from the highway) 12 miles south of Lucia and 12 miles north of Ragged Point Inn, just north of Gorda Springs. 36.139957,-121.64686
Directions: Coming from the south you can spot the yurts up on the bluff just past Gorda Springs the first road on the right is Willow Creek Road when you see the little Treebones sign turn right there on Willow Creek Road then take an immediate right through the gate and follow the half mile unpaved road to Treebones. Approaching from the north drive down Pacific Coast Highway One about 20 minutes (12 miles) past the roadside resort of Lucia, turn left on Willow Creek Road where you will see a little Treebones sign then take an immediate right through the gate and follow the unpaved road a half mile to the resort.
Camping Facilities: 16 Yurts furnished with regular queen sized beds including linens and comforters. There is a small table & set of chairs, electric reading lights and a sink with hot & cold running water and little gas heater, yurts have view decks with Adirondack chairs. They are several nice ocean view walk in campsites where put your own, or a campsite with a round platform tent called a Sibley tent, or they also have campsite with a human nest included, these walk in campsites all have picnic tables and close by water spigots, no campfires or open cook fires are allowed campers can use portable cook stoves on the picnic tables, the extravagant costs of the campsites and Yurts include a self serve waffle breakfast and use of the other Treebones facilities. There is a communal lodge room with a fireplace and a dining room where a meal is served every evening, there are restrooms and showers in this same communal lodge building . There is a heated pool and hot tub, there is also another restroom towards the northeastern corner of the property. The yurts of course have no TVs or telephones and your cell phone probably won't work but at the communal lodge there is complementary Wi-Fi internet access. The communal lodge building, restroom, shower and one yurt are wheelchair accessible.
Activities: enjoying the ocean view, swimming in the heated pool and relaxing in the hot tub, picnicking, hiking, surfing, relaxing, Pacific Coast Highway 1 sightseeing, eco adventure tours
Close by Points of Interest: Hiking is good from the property but a short drive either north or south takes you to some incredible trails like Partington Cove, Cruickshank trail, Soda Springs trail, Buckeye trail, Salmon Creek trail, or The local hot surf spots are just north Willow Creek and Mill Creek which both offer nice rocky beach areas, picnic tables and restrooms. Other excellent beach and picnic areas like Jade Cove and Sand Dollar Beach are just north and the Pacific Valley Ranger Station is just north of Plaskett Creek Campground. The best restaurant on the Big Sur Coast Nepenthe is 36 scenic miles north or only 12 miles south is the wonderful Ragged Point Restaurant enjoy lunch there and visit the Piedras Blancas lighthouse and elephant seal rookery along the way it's just 27 miles south is Hearst Castle and W.R. Hearst Memorial Beach which among many other attractions has rental kayaks and kayak tours.
Pets & Misc. Regulations: No pets allowed in the yurts, the human nest or the Sibley tent. Campers are allowed one dog on leash for the extra charge of $10 per night in campsites only! There is a two night minimum stay for guests on weekends & all stays April through October. All stays include a self serve waffle/ homemade granola breakfast with hot coffee and juice. Absolutely no open cookfires or campfires due to fire hazard. Campers may bring a picnic tabletop camp stove for cooking or dine at lodge restaurant. Smoking-free property, there is one designated smoking area by the lodge which is the only place that smoking is allowed on the property; there is a $200 immediate charge for evidence of cigarette or incense smoke or pet hair.
Helpful Hints: Bring a good pair of binoculars if you have them and pack a cooler with plenty of drinks and snacks. Don't forget flip-flops, a flashlight, robe and shower tote bag, you have to walk to the restrooms and showers. This is not really a family oriented campground they request that all children be at least 6 years of age. I would suggest that you try to rent one more isolated yurts if you are looking for privacy, the walls are fabric-thin, "the yurts and lodge area are communal in nature and require all guests to monitor their conversations and personal activities so as not to be a disturbance to others".
