The Best Campsite In Big Sur

Illustration for article titled The Best Campsite In Big Sur

Here's an article I wrote before we started IndefinitelyWild. It's the best car camping spot I've ever found, so figured it should be surfaced.

Wanted to thank you for sharing this post. I was just in that area last week and thought I’d give it a go. An excellent ride up on the paved part and the gravel/dirt part was fine (although would be scary if wet). I was surprised to see people camping in the turnouts on the way up the road since there were plenty of spots available at the top. Great place to camp - great recommendation. It’s unfortunate that USFS doesn’t put pit toilets up there as there was quite a bit of toilet paper and human waste around which drew hordes of flies. Otherwise, it’s an absolutely perfect place to view the coast.
