Best Places to Camp in Big Sur: Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park is not to be confused with Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, which only has two campsites (thus nearly impossible to reserve), but sits on the bluff right above McWay Falls. Kirk Creek Campground will always be one of our favorite campgrounds in Big Sur. It sits right on the bluff, overlooking the ocean. Half of the sites are available for reservation and the other half are on a first-come, first-served basis.
Pfeiffer beach, BIG SUR "Here's a tip - Sycamore Canyon Road is the only paved, ungated road west of Highway One between the Big Sur post office and Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. Once you find the turnout, make a very sharp turn. Then follow the road for about two miles until it ends." SO finding this!
