"Camping along Highway 1 Pacific Ocean" PCH--Pacific Coast Highway--Highway 1 Tip by SLLiew


Enjoyed camping at one of the many camping sites along Highway 1. You just drive and park a vacant lot and set up your tent for the night. There is a box at the entrance for self registration and to drop the camping fee into an envelope into the box - self service.

Can look into the ocean and see any spouts of passing whales. The vegetation on the cliffs are varied, colorful and full of little flowers. The fog may come in. At night, a racoon raided our camp site. Bring torches for fun night hikes along the cliffs and down the coast. It is a real adventure.
