There are few camping road trips as scenic as California's Highway 1 through the Central Coast. The Pacific Coast Highway's roadside attractions include pristine beaches, wild and rugged coastline and the best oceanfront camping in California.

Take your time and explore because around every corner is another spectacular landscape and an outdoor adventure waiting to unfold. There are wineries to visit, beaches to comb, and towns to visit. There are sights to see, photographs to be taken and there are many beach campgrounds that will provide a portal for your Central Coast escape.
