Plaskett Creek Campground?
« on: June 29, 2016, 09:35 AM »
Has anyone camped there?

Is it possible to easily launch a kayak in that area?

Use the search feature. As the post says, these are launches you can talk about without risking great bodily harm. Other than that get out there and explore. You might just find your own favorite spot.

Thanks. I actually did search and read that post, but I was hoping for some more granular detail, as it's a long drive for me.

It's a great campground, one of my favorites that's fairly local. Sand dollar beach is across the road but is not a great place to launch. Mainly due to the 1000 stairs to get down there. There are launch spots in the area some better than others. Mill Creek is a fairly well known launch spot but can be challenging due to the boulders on the beach. Otherwise I would say try Lime Kiln. It's a beach launch so it will depend on swell but there is camping there too.

Great info - thank you. I've been thinking of taking my nephew out on his first trip (outside a harbor), and i'm looking for places with easy launches.

Lugging a tandem down steps and past boulders with a kid isn't a recipe for fun.

Big sur is no place for that even if you did not have to do that.

The place is remote and with that being said you will not get help if you have any issues on the water.

I'd have to second what Rhyak said. My buddy and I fish Big Sur a couple times a season, and you go into it well prepared knowing that the only help you'll get is from each other. It's jagged and remote, launches can be tough, and conditions can be unforgiving. That being said, it's also what makes the place so amazing.

Thanks all.

Is the fishing much better at these remote places?

Not in the last several years.  Fishing has been consistently good everywhere.  Cambria, MDO, other places.  If you don't have over 50 days yak fishing you shouldn't even think about Big Sur.  It's not necessary.

Sounds like good advice. I'll observe it, until I get some more experience.

Its a beautiful place to observe even without even wetting a line. But plenty of surf fishing spots.

Sand Dollar is usually pretty good for some slabs.
