Information: Point Lobos State Reserve is a property that has through the years been so useful to so many people and it is so proven to be so rare and valuable we are truly blessed that has been saved as a public asset for us all to enjoy it. Parking is limited although you may park on the highway and walk in, be sure to take binoculars, a camera, and get a brochure at the entrance there are many restrictions because this is a preserve.
Nearby Points of Interest: Carmel River State Beach just a couple of miles north on Pacific Coast Highway 1 and Carmel Mission Basilica is just three miles, take Cabrillo HWY 1 north go left on Rio Rd a little over a half mile.
Beach Access and Day Use Parks & Picnic Areas: Here at Point Lobos State Reserve is a great place to picnic and Carmel River State Beach a couple of miles up the Pacific Coast Highway 1. The town of Carmel is quaint and quite pet friendly for instance on their beach you are allowed to let your dog off the leash, you can drink alcohol and have a bonfire as well. The Carmel City Beach (not the California State Beach) has a small parking lot with restrooms at the end of Ocean Avenue at Del Mar Avenue.
Best places to Eat: My favorites because they are down to earth, delicious and affordable just few miles north north on PCH 1 after the Carmel River Bridge, there are two shopping malls, the first just off Rio Road is Crossroads Shopping Village which has R.G. Burgersand Island Tacos Mexican Grill and other side of the road Carmel Barnyard Shopping Village has From Scratch Restaurant. If you are looking for fine dining the Pacific's Edge Restaurant and the California Market are just south at Hyatt Highlands Carmel Resort.
Nearby Hotel Lodgings & Resorts: If you have the money just south there are the Tickle Pink Inn and the world class Carmel Highlands Hyatt California Hotel. they are not cheap $$$$. If you are going south on PCH the Big Sur River Inn is about 24 miles; I prefer the reasonably priced lodging next to the Carmel River, go north about 2.5 miles on PCH just past the bridge to the Carmel River Inn .
Near Campgrounds: The closest camping if you don't mind heading inland is up Carmel Valley Road, Saddle Mountain RV Park (831-624-1617) is primarily an RV park but they do have some tent sites, it’s about 8.5 miles from Point Lobos. Monterey County run park the Laguna Seca Recreation Area (888-588-2267) is about 15 miles on highway 68 which offers Salinas Valley views with both RV and tent camping with hookups, running water restrooms with showers and miles of trails on the Fort Ord Public Lands. About 20 miles south then east is Botcher's Gap Campground; about 22 miles south on PCH is Andrew Molera State Park trail camp.
History & Museums: The park has two small museums, a Whaling Station Museum with historic antique items associated with whaling and a restored old residence called the Whalers Cabin Museum
Gasoline, Public Restrooms, Supplies: next gasoline (no diesel) is just south at Carmel Highlands or ahead to Carmel
Other Facilities, Services or Activities: You are right on the southern edge of an area rich in history and famous for the natural beauty and artistic culture. For the vacationing visitor the list of great places to stay, eat, things to see and do is almost endless…have fun and enjoy…Carmel, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Salinas etc…
