If youre in a mobile home, and want a natural place to camp, but you have all your amenities with you, this place is great.
We had a fantastic spot at the edge of the cliff (but safe) we pre booked through the National Park website, and the kids loved it. We had racoons and chipmunks running about, which the kids thought were great.
If you have a large mobile home, ask for a flat spot, initially we had a sloped position which was a little scary for our first ever overnight in a massive camper van in the US, especially as we turned up very late at night (try to get to the site before dark) otherwise its hard to navigate, and the chipmunks and racoons are scary (if you haven't seen them before, and its pitch dark !!).
Dont leave your food out unattended as the little critters will eat it all, and they can open tupperware !! Take a torch, there is no light/lamps at night Highway 1 is quiet in the evening, don't be put off by the close proximity to the highway, you cant here it or really see it from the site, and it isn't an unpleasant highway. The ocean is much louder, but soothing.
There are no hook ups here, there are toilets (we didn't use them as we had our own) the campsite manager, is knowledgeable and helpful and you can buy logs for the outdoor pit from him too, but nothing else, it is a back to nature natural spot, perfect for a few days on a longer journey. You cannot dump here either.
Take a camera, the views are magnificent.
We travelled June 2012, with 3 kids in a hired roadbearrv/ motorhome, what a fab time !
