Amazing spot

This is probably the most beautiful spot I have camped at. Small campground right on the beach - deep within the Lost Coast area. The campground is directly adjacent to the Kings Range Conservation Area. There are miles of untouched beaches to explore. Simply amazing. I was there in October and it wasn't crowded
