The campsites sites are divided up into ocean front spots, as well as creek side camping & camping inside a redwood grove. Three separate loops makes for better privacy.
Nearby, Julia Pfiefer Burn State Park offers 2 eco camp spots, but these primitive sites have to be the best in cliff camping anywhere in Central & Southern California.
