Nacimiento Campground

Los Padres National Forest | Big Sur, CA

Nacimiento Campground offers remote camping close to Monterey and Big Sur. If you’re looking to escape the crowded coast, this small campground is the spot, and it’s more about the journey than the destination to this site (though, both are the cream of the crop)—trust us, when you go, you’ll understand. Peaceful sites are located in groves of oak and a small creek is nearby. Bring what you need because it’s a long way up, down, and around, and you’ll never want to leave this hush-hush spot.
