California Beach Camping


California has the best beaches on the west coast & they draw millions of tourists here each year. From RV camping on the beaches of San Diego to Northern California's rural Lost Coast, we have a variety of public & private Campgrounds along the coastline for every style of camping. The best coast camping is along the scenic Central Coast of California, also known as Big Sur CA. A 100 mile stretch of natural beauty that spans from Carmel to Cayucos.

Partington Cove is a great day hike with redwood forest & rocky coves; just north of Julia Pfeiffer State Park. At the southern end of the Big Sur coast, Sand Dollar Beach is a great dog friendly beach w/ Plaskett Creek Campground is directly across the street. There are camp sites in: oak canyons, on dirt roads, on ridges, on rocky bluffs, or inside dense redwood groves. Primitive camping on ridges via forest dirt roads. Walk in camps at Andrew Molera, drive in RV camps at Big Sur State Park & backpacking in the Ventana Wilderness with awesome views of the coastline.

Whether you seek a primitive, free camp site or a luxurious RV resort with all the amenities, Total Escape has all camping options listed on each destination page.
