Kirk Creek Campground Beach in Big Sur, California

Kirk Creek Campground is a is a blufftop camping spot for RV and tent campers in the southern Big Sur area. The campground has access to a narrow rocky beach below the bluff. After setting up camp look for the beach trail that begins across from campsite 10. This leads to a rocky portion of the beach. Another unofficial beach trail begins behind the “hiker/biker sites” and leads to a sandier beach.

Across the highway from the entrance is a hiking trail known as the Vicente Flats Trail which climbs high up the mountain above the campground for about five miles. This trail has two backcountry camps where backpackers can stay overnight, but day hikers can stop anywhere along the way to enjoy the view then head back down. Watch for ticks if you hike here.

Kirk Creek Campground doesn’t have running water, but the camp host has containers of drinking water, and firewood for sale. Reservations are recommended since there are only about thirty camp sites here. If you don’t plan to camp, you’ll need to seek out another beach in the area such as Sand Dollar Beach or Limekiln State Park because there is no day-use parking at Kirk Creek Campground.

To find Kirk Creek Campground, just look for the park sign north of the Highway 1 intersection with Nacimiento-Fergusson Road. A small country store at the Lucia Lodge is available just up the highway for camping provisions.
