    After a busy day of sight seeing stopped to have a look about a possible campsite. Luckily 2 tent sites were still available. So stayed for the night listening to just the ocean waves and an awesome view in the morning.

    For years I've wanted to oceanfront camp in California but didn't want to deal with the cutthroat reservation madness for the state beaches. Luckily, I stumbled across a mid-week three day availability at Kirk Creek while on Recreation.Gov looking for something else and snatched it...More

    We booked Kirk Creek Campground for two nights based on the Sunset magazine recommendation. WOW. This place is beyond gorgeous. We stayed in site 009, and I honestly think it was the best site in the campground because it had ocean views AND shade. Most...More

    I believe the closest you'll be able to do this is in Carmel or somewhere along I-5. Same goes for fuel. We stayed at Kirk Creek 3 days in between two full hookup RV park in other parts of CA. Same goes for fuel BTW
