California Parks Visitor Reviews
8/4/2018 2:29:58 PM San Simeon Beach State Park
San Simeon State Beach, Cambria, CA - Made reservations for 3 days; set up camp (tent and trailer) and took dog for two walks (on leash) and the ticks and foxtails were terrible and had to leave; we were there 6 hours! We were at Washburn campground; maybe try the lower camp; not as primitive. Very disappointed.

Nice park. - This was my first time here. We were traveling late and finding all other campgrounds full we tried it. Very pleased to find out it was newly reopened this year. Back loop is very nice and woodsy, Bathrooms were beautiful and clean. Not too noisy from the highwY. Sorry lake is gone but I highly recommend the campground, so close to Avenue of Giants. 4 people total in campground on June 21st a Thursday so very private feel. Site 33 was awsome with a thick woods backdrop. Really nice.

Funtastic Adventure - This is the best of all nature worlds! Hiking in the trees, beach access and you can walk the bluffs if you would like to. This is an amazing trail that will amaze you with eyecandy of redwoods and ocean!

One of my favorite backpacking spots! - This park is great for finding solitude, and you do not need to get permits months in advance! Here are two trip reports I wrote that describe my backpacking trips in Henry Coe. To Coit Lake - https://backpackersreview.wordpress.com/trip-reports/henry-coe-coit-lake/ To Mississippi Lake - https://backpackersreview.wordpress.com/trip-reports/henry-coe-mississippi-lake/

family favorite - on our last trip we took our dog - over 50% of the guests had dogs - however no dogs were permitted on the beach or trails - we had to load up and drive either north or south to find dog friendly hikes and beaches - we ended up leaving 2 days early

Gods Backyard - My late wife and I spent a week up in Jedediah Smith campgrounds while traveling through Northern California. What a beautiful place, the trees are just .....wow! You have to experience camping out with the trees, it is something you will never forget.

It is definitely open to the public - I go hiking there regularly. No restrictions to entry - I see families walking, people running & mountain biking.

Caverns are closed - Mitchell Caverns have been closed for four years. The SRA is being repaired and restored, but the opening date is still unclear. It was to open in February 2016, but that has now been cancelled, with no new date.
