Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park Campground is perched 80 feet above the Pacific Ocean on the Big Sur coastline. There are only 2 walk-in, tent campsites here (#1 – Saddle Rock Camp and #2 – South Gardens Camp), but they are to die for. In fact, they are the most sought after tent camping sites along the California coast and offer unsurpassed views of the Big Sur coast. You’ll need to walk your gear (and water) about 1/2 mile from the parking area to the campsites. Each campsite has a table, fire ring, grate and food storage locker. ┬áVault toilets are located close to the 2 campsites. There is no water at the campsites, but there are a few water spigots and flush toilets by the day-use area.

Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park located along the Big Sur coastline and extends inland into the nearby 3,000-foot ridges. The park features redwood and other trees along McWay creek, and an 80-foot waterfall (McWay Falls) that drops from the cliffs into a spectacular ocean cove. The park also includes a 1,680-acre underwater reserve teeming with an assortment of marine life.
