A Valentine’s Day camping trip in Big Sur. Awww. You know what that means: a nice, riverside spot at Fernwood; a delicious dinner at the Big Sur Bakery; perhaps a white wine-nightcap at Nepenthe, all dissolving into a drunken sulfur-cloud of passive-aggressive ambiguity, self-doubt, dry heaving, and hard-core weeping.
For example, here’s what we have to say about Ripplewood Resort:
Cozy cabins, a general store, a gas station, Wi-Fi, and perhaps most importantly, the best omelettes in Big Sur.
Or how about this, regarding Treebones Resort?
The only place to find sushi in Big Sur, Treebones also features 16 yurts and 5 campsites with breathtaking views of the Pacific ocean at Cape San Martin.
“The best omelettes in Big Sur.” “The only place to find sushi in Big Sur.” Sorry, but you can’t get that kind of shiz in Lonely Planet or whatever. Can’t do it.
Better yet, add your two cents by commenting on this very blog. Which are your favorite campsites? Why? Why not? I’m sure perplexed would-be French tourists would be dying to know what you think. Seriously!
Most importantly, like Valentine’s Day itself, the store’s Big Sur camping and lodging recommendations come with the one thing money can’t buy: love.
