Your Next Great Outdoor Adventure

Includes the outdoors, and a little outdoor drinking

By The Editors

A few of your friendly InsideHook editors are going camping this weekend in Big Sur.

Because while the summer camping trip is an American pastime, we find that it’s better to go when there’s a chill in the air.

That’s when there’s more Thoreau-ian peace and quiet which is, y’know, the reason you’re going camping in the first place.

With our excursion in mind, we’re setting you up with a camping trip of your own.

So load up your daypack, tie your hiking kicks, ice down the provisions and look north to Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park.

Home to the finest loop trail the North Coast has to offer.

And maybe a little oceanfront camping if you’re feeling dauntless.

Inside our (very) brief guide: where to go, what to bring and how to stay warm.

Fall in.
