Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park Campground California

Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park Overview

Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park Campsite 001

Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park Campground is perched 80 feet above the Pacific Ocean offering spectacular views of 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. You’ll need to walk your gear (and water) about 1/2 mile from the parking area to the campsites. Each campsite also has a table, fire ring, grate and food storage locker.  Vault 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.
