In the spectacular Big Sur area, this park is still relatively undeveloped and offers visitors great hiking and beachcombing.
Miles of trails wind through meadows, beaches and hilltops. A primitive walk-in trail camp, popular with hikers and bikers, is located approximately one third mile from the parking area.
Andrew Molera SP Trail Camp
There are 24 identified sites. Camping is allowed only at these sites with a maximum of four people per site. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
The establishment of 24 sites with a limit of four people per site will allow for maximum availability of individual campsites, yet continue to meet the required carrying capacity. Due to these changes, however, group camping at Trail Camp is no longer feasible. Dogs are not allowed in Trail Camp, on any trails, or at the beach. Please contact the park for additional information.
Bridge Notice - Seasonal bridges that cross the river are installed, depending on seasonal conditions, from around June through October.
