Camping banned on Nacimiento-Fergusson Road Effective Today

Hello Big Sur!


This has been a long time coming and today, August 10, 2017, Merv George Jr., Forest Supervisor, Los Padres National Forest issued a camping ban for roadside camping on Nacimiento-Fergusson Road.



  1. Awesome! Wonderful decision! I am sad that it is harder to visit Big Sur but also very happy that the reduced traffic (and further reducing thanks to this decision) will give a chance for the land to rest and regenerate. I live by the Point Reyes National Seashore where we have similar overuse problems. It’s tough but has to be done. Internet exposure has made areas previously less visited extremely accessible, and neither nature nor the infrastructure can handle that level of traffic. Thank you for your courage and resolve! You can’t ever make everybody happy but the only time to protect our gorgeous, still almost pristine coast is NOW. Good work!!!!!
