Coastal camping doesn't get much better than this. Be ready to experience incredible panoramic views and ocean coves teeming with marine life.

Salt Point State Park offers 20 miles of hiking trails and six miles of rugged California coastline. This is the perfect campsite for groups interested in trail running, hiking, scuba diving, fishing, and horseback riding. 

To reserve a campground, search for Gerstle Cove here. Each campsite is equipped with a picnic table, fire ring, food locker, and bathroom access. Gerstle Cove Campground has potable water, but no showers. This is a relatively small campground (28 campsites) and they book up quickly. Dogs are allowed here but must be kept on leash and are not allowed on the beaches. Several of the sits are handicap accessible.
