Verizon ok. Nice spot next to ocean. Popular with plenty of other rvs and cars parked.

Report Check-In

A diamond in the rough of places to crash for the night on the coast of California without getting harassed by cops or locals. Great views and plenty of spaces, the train and retired 101 bridges are cool

Report Check-In

As previously mentioned. Lots of room. Plenty of rigs spent the night. Be aware it’s a popular spot with truckers. They come and go all night, leaving their engine on.

Stayed 1 night here with plenty of other vans and trucks. Amazing location and views

Report Check-In

Great stop for overnight, even for big RV. No noise from the trafic and beautiful ocean view.

Report Check-In

Beautiful spot, had a great nights sleep. Most of the stretch is on a slope but if you can drive to the top close to the freeway on ramp it flattens out. Although it’s close to the highway the cars were pretty quiet, just ambient noise. I only woke up once because people were hanging out outside. Nothing harmful, just a bit noisy. Definitely a popular place. There are trash cans so please keep this place nice!

As described great spot for a night with beautiful sunset/ Sunrise

beautiful view to wake up to. Noisy from freeway, but it is well worth it

Report Check-In

Great place to stop for a day or two. There’s a slight hill at first, but keep driving to reach the flat overlook. No bathrooms and you’re on a cliff by railroad, but theres some good energy here. Incredible ocean overlook with abandoned oil rigs in distance.

stopped here in 2020 and stopped here again this year. quiet on a little bit of a hill near the train tracks and has a great hiking trail. good for one or two nights. some traffic from the highway, were a couple people that looks like they might have been here for a few days.

Basic pull off. It’s close to the freeway but surprisingly quiet still. I parked up towards the end of the lot and had it all to myself cause the semi trucks can’t turn around this far up. There were a couple of trees to hammock from as well. Waves are small but ride able at the right tide. There are a lot of flat spots. Good cell service (Verizon) loads videos and music well. Can fit any size of rig. Asphalt parking lot. Sunset was awesome. Trash cans, but no bathrooms

Report Check-In

plenty of space to park whatever set up you have. a bit of highway noise, but it’s muted a little by the hill that separates the road from the turnoff. two trash cans available but nothing else. lots of people going in and out, but as a solo female digital nomad, I prefer to have other people nearby so I was comfortable with it. Great cell service, even better view (like seriously stunning), and easy to get in and out of. I’ll actually be staying another night here because it’s such a great base camp.

Report Check-In

Gorgeous view! Parked with rear doors of our van open to the Pacific Ocean. Serene and magnificient!

Report Check-In

Long stretch of a pull off the pch. Fits plenty of big rigs. Part of the area is sloped thats behind a small hill and protects from highway noise. Absolutely beautiful place to wake up in. It was very windy last night, but not sure of the normal weather. Great place to stay a night or maybe a few. Havent seen any enforcement. The cliff is about 100 feet up from the ocean and there is no rail so he mindful with children and pets. There are train tracks below, but we didnt hear any go by so not sure if theyre still in use.

Report Check-In

Excellent spot, plenty of space, and all campers extremely respectful and quiet. Beautiful views and good cell service. Gets windy at night, so if you can find a space next to the hill it will limit the swaying of your rig.

Report Check-In

Spacious, had a good one night. No restrooms. AT&T full signal.

Report Check-In

Beautiful. Watched the sun **rise** over the ocean (sort of) to the east because of the curvature of the coast. Great spot. Most level ground is right near beginning of the vista pullout, it becomes more sloped upward the further you drive.

Report Check-In

I pulled in late and found a spot right away. The view even at night was awesome and as a solo female van camper I felt super safe and slept great! There were other cars, vans and trailers, everyone was quiet and kept to themselves. Woke up in the morning to a lovely view and spent time making my coffee and hanging out for a bit with now problem! I would totally stay here again and recommend!

Awesome spot! Got here before sunset with pick up and 22ft trailer. Pulled out chairs and chilled for the night. Lots of Sprinters, cars, RVs staying the night, no problem. Some highway noise, but lovely place to sleep. You can get to the beach, but it’s not easy

we have spent many nights here passing through. watched whales and dolphins from our van. only problems are big rig trucks running engines or generators making it noisey sometimes

Report Check-In

Decent and free for one night. Several big rigs on the left. Campers on the right. A large dirt hill muffles the highway noise. No one bothered us. We should have parked on the right upon entering- either in the first spot or up at the end. Semparkbehind and kept engine running a

Nice vista point with ample of flat parking, nice ocean view as well. There is road noise as right beside highway but nothing extreme. Couple van’s and cars overnight with no issues. Would definitely recommend this spot as so many parking restrictions elsewhere in area.

We felt safe, a lot of RVs, Vans and Trucks. A bit on a hill, but nice with a little view.

the view here is amazing! there's a couple other vanlifers, a couple rvs and a half dozen truckers here right now. I also have full service on tmobile which I wasn't expecting at all. there's some trash cans here but otherwise no services.

We slept here for 3 nights, great spot! If you sleep next to the hill you cant hear the traffic that much and if its windy youre more secluded. Felt very safe here.

no overnight camping heavy law enforcement 2 in the morning

we were a bit surprised by this spot after rolling in late in the darkness.
woke up to great views after a quiet nite of sleep.

There are railroad tracks right next to the road, but have yet to see a train.

Great spot to spend the night

Easy pull in with many places to stop. Nice view of the ocean in the morning. Can be noisy if a lot of semis are around with their engines on. Would recommend this location in terms of “sleepability” compared to the rest area 6 miles away.

3 bars of Verizon 4G. There is beach access at North End under railroad bridge is stairs that leads down to Creek and Beach. All other info listed is accurate. Can be busy!
