  • We came around 1pm and was told that there was no space so we were turned away. Don't understand since the parking lot didn't even look full. Ended up driving down here for nothing.  more »
  • Well worth the trip down Highway 1, this is an excellent day trip. Pack a lunch as there are nice picnic tables, bathrooms, etc. Although called a State Park, it is privately run so State Park Pass is...  more »

  • This place was wonderful for a camping vacation. Park staff was extremely friendly and the accommodations were top notch. Bathrooms were always clean and easily accessible. The 2 minute walk to the beach was one of the trip highlights, because the clear view of the sunrise and sunset was incredibly beautiful. I definitely recommend hiking up the waterfall trail. If you are feeling adventurous and don't mind a little brush in your path, try taking the left path up to the ridge. The views are breathtaking!
  • Was able to get a walk in camp site here for $35/night. $12 per bundle of firewood. Not far from beach, river that flows into ocean. Under overpass but you dont even hear any traffic. Beautiful sunsets.
  • Great place to stop during a day trip! They let us bring our dogs in to walk the trails with us. It was absolutely beautiful after rain!
  • Beautiful state park with lots to do in the area! I really suggest taking a hike to the beach at night, the stars are incredible and if you lucky you might even see some bio luminescence in the waves.
  • Limekilns are in fantastic condition for their age. The campground is small and close quarters but the park is so gorgeous it doesn't matter. Ferns, ivy, moss, redwoods, etc make for gorgeous hikes. It smells amazing there. We will definitely be visiting again!
