Limekiln State Park

Amanda Janelle
The park is quite small with a little over thirty campsites to choose from. It's all very tucked away along Limekiln Creek with eleven ocean-view spots to set up camp. We chose spot #1, and sitting at our picnic table perched above the private beach below, we hardly noticed the handful of campers at the sites below us. The only draw back to our secluded location? The short hike down to the toilets and hot (pay) showers (worth every quarter -- by the way, bring quarters). Fall asleep to waves crashing and awaken to the morning sun sparkling down onto the water below. Hot tea and sea otter watching with glimpses of playful dolphins? Check!
