    Go camping with your dog at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park.

    Special Interest: BeachCamping

    Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park (Big Sur, CA) is a beautiful park that gives you the best of both worlds – a wonderful, majestic seaside, large redwoods, and Pfeiffer Falls.

    Pfeiffer Big Sur Campground features several RV and tent sites. Look for premium campsites along the Big Sur River, especially during the fall season. Although there are many RV and tent sites, you do need to reserve months in advance.

    Dogs are allowed in the campground, day use areas, Pfeiffer Beach, and United States Forest Service (USFS) property. They must be on leash. Before you visit the park, read up on current conditions.

    Items Needed: Camping gear appropriate for the desert and weather, food, fresh water, poop bags, short leash, long leash, chew toys, harness, something to keep your dog cool or warm, dog bedding, towel, brush, first aid kit, thick paw protection / boots, copy of your dog's health and vaccination records, tweezers or tick remover, dog brush, glow stick or flare gun, and any additional safety items for humans and dogs.

    Safety: Some campsites and national parks do not allow dogs. Make sure that you comply with all park rules and regulations and consult your vet for proper vaccinations. Stay home if the weather is too hot or cold. Source a local vet close to where you will be camping in case of emergencies. Campgrounds should be set away from riverbeds or low ground to avoid flash floods. Beginner campers should stick to designated camping areas. Bring fresh water - at least a gallon or more per person or dog and more if physically active.
