Big Sur Car Camping Help

When you say you plan to road trip up the coast and stay in Big Sur, I assume you are traveling north. Are you aware that Highway 1 has been closed due to the mudslide that took out the road on Jan 28. It won't be reopened for a few more months. This area is about 16 miles south of Big Sir. And the detour will take a few hours, going inland to Hwy 101, farther north and then back down thru Monterey.

As far as camping, it seems the area has become quite a hot mess. Check out this video as an example. It seems that much of the camping there nowadays is illegally, so...

Sorry if this is news to you. But Happy Birthday!
