Hearst San Simeon State Park is a state park of California, USA, preserving rocky coast and rare habitats. It is located between Cambria and San Simeon. The 3,409-acre (1,380 ha) park was first established in 1932. The park includes the Santa Rosa Creek Natural Preserve, the San Simeon Natural Preserve and the Pa-nu Cultural Preserve, which were established in 1990. A 3.3-mile (5.3 km) trail runs through parts of the San Simeon Natural Preserve and the Washburn Campground. The trail includes scenic overlooks, rest-stop benches and interpretive panels with information on wildlife and habitat. A portion of the trail along the seasonal wetland is wheelchair accessible. Santa Rosa Creek Preserve is an area that includes valuable riparian forests and coastal wetlands, which provide habitat for endangered tidewater goby.

  • I have been camping here for over 20 years. I come almost every summer. The campground is a good location to stay if you want to enjoy the central Cali coast. The beach at the campground isn't as nice as it used to be, but it's very close to other nice beaches.

  • Great historical destination to experience an era gone past. The drive to from Moonstone Beach and past to Big Sur is absolutely breathtaking. Enjoy

  • I would spend days here if given the option. The tours were amazing and the guides really know their information. I loved it

  • It was a fun adventure, but very crowded. If your vacation takes you anywhere in the area it's worth your time.

  • Cozy small beach in a secluded bay with an old pier. Far from shopping and restaurants but a great place to pack a lunch and spend the day
