  • Spent the weekend at shipwreck campground at split rock lighthouse. The campground is excellent. We appreciate the sites being spaced apart giving people some space to stretch out. Sites were more than big enough for our small camper and 2 cars. Shower house had plenty of hot water. Vault toilets were well kept and clean.
  • 8$ per person. Got to see the lighthouse up close, and the did the trail down to the beach and took some photos. The views were beautiful. The snow did make the walk up and down a bit hard. The wooden staircase to the historic site was closed for winter. Did not go all the way to Pebble beach, so cant comment on it.
