Really enjoyed our brief stay here. Enjoyable drive through winding mountain road with mossy forests and old growth trees- you could do this in a standard car (we saw one honda fit at the campsite) but the other dozen vehicles were trucks and jeeps. and the honda came in with a truck so dont know if the truck was scouting or willing to pull him up a hill if it got tricky. trucks and jeeps make more sense, especially on a day like when we did it (rainy day in mid november). there is some rutting, slick mud on steep grades, deep wide puddles a foot deep, and i could see getting boxed out in a 2wd car in these conditions. I had read that the beach is ok for driving, and clearly the beach itself has car and dirtbike tracks all over it. there were a couple trucks camping on the beach itself above the high tide line. however on the way out i noticed a sign at the info area that said no driving on the beach. buyer beware. The ocean noise drowns out all possible camper noise if you are near the beach, and there are apparently a dozen or more clearings in the woods inland of the beach camping, which look pretty wet in the rain. i got one or two bars verizon/extended 1X cell service right by the water, but no service elsewhere. on that note, i highly recommend you have directions or a gps coordinate for the turnoff on route 1 to get here. the deep forest where the basically unlabeled road leaves highway 1 would be easy to miss, and you wont have cell phone service to figure out where you are anywhere near that turnoff.,
