    la Familia is thinking of going camping in Big Sur. We like "primitive" camping and would like something near the beach. So far, I have discovered Andrew Molera State Park but I am wondering if anybody knows of any others along the California coast that is worth considering. We are looking for a bit of adventure with some nice hiking and some beautiful scenery and lastly, hopefully, some fish'n!

    Well if ya have not gone yet, look at the federal campsites. They are all a little more primitive than the state sites. Still have showers (some) and bathrooms, but the sites are more spaced out and the fire pits are those tall bohemiths that you can't see the fire. Normal camping basically.

    Kirk creek has the best view.

    Note though, the federal sites are first come first serve.

    Other than that, could not tell you about the state parks as i don't like that type of camping. Too used to OR coast.

    If you don't make big sur, there are some pretty decent state parks here in san luis (montana de oro and morro bay).

    good luck! Oh, I may not check this for a while so I'll pm you my email

    Check out the national park on Folly Beach right outside Charleston, SC. You can get primitive camping (bring lots of DEET for skeeters and a bb-gun for raccoons) plus you're in Folly, which is a nice little surfing town. The park also has great running trails. The locals are cool and you can go to the "washout" and surf small waves. They have a pretty nice beach there, plus you're five minutes from Charleston, so you can go into the city at night to eat out, shop, or tour the historic district. There are also ferried tours to Fort Sumter if you're into history like I am.

    I've only been to LA. I wish I could go camping in Cali, I've always wanted to camp in the red wood forest.

    Why would you shoot a raccoon with a bb gun?

    California coast - Charleston, SC.

    Did I miss that day in geography class? I always thought these two were on opposite sides of the continent?

    Doesn't everyone travel over 2000 miles to camp?
