Norris Rancho Marino Reserve, Fiscalini Ranch Preserve, Cambria State Marine Conservation Area and White Rock (Cambria) State Marine Conservation Area, Cambria has a lot to offer nature-loving visitors!
Camp Ocean Pines was established in 1946 to serve the community as a non-profit camp and a conference center. A jewel on the Central Coast, the camp sits on thirteen donated acres of Monterey Pine forest that nearly meets the ocean shore. Camp Ocean Pines has made memories for more than 100,000 campers – with generations more to come!
Camp Ocean Pines is a truly unique place to visit! Wildlife abounds, with seals and otters swimming by, and deer roaming through the property. They have ten beautifully designed straw bale cabins engineered for passive solar efficiency, and timbers and siding milled from on-site wind-felled trees. By staying in these cabins, people experience facilities that use natural resources wisely. The campus can house 100 guests.
The mission of Camp Ocean Pines is to foster enjoyment and appreciation of the natural world among people of all ages through creative activities in a residential camp setting.
