Chapel and Campground

Welcome Campers and Visitors

Santa Lucia Chapel and Campground, set in idyllic Big Sur, is a privately-owned property that offers outdoor and wilderness enjoyment only to non-profit organizations, churches, and families of All Saints’ Church and All Saints Day School. Nestled under the Redwoods on the Big Sur River, it is truly a sacred space for spiritual and physical renewal.

All Saints’ Church staff and volunteers look forward to welcoming campers and visitors to Santa Lucia for rest and relaxation.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic a waiver form is required for each person entering the property. Reservations are required and the Campground is not open for drop-in visits.

Rustic Camp Sites

Spanning six-and-a-half acres, the campground has three group campsites for pitching tents, grilling at open fire pits, and gathering around fire rings at picnic tables or on benches. Other amenities include: a restroom facility, a rocky beach along the Big Sur River, and fresh drinking water from our own well.

Reservations for group campsites are required, usually one year in advance. To inquire about availability, email campground@allsaintscarmel.org, or call (972) 567-3572 or (831) 667-2310. Availability must be confirmed PRIOR to making a camp site reservation.

NOTE: There are no showers at the campground. RVs and trailers are NOT permitted due to limited access.

Outdoor Chapel for Weddings and Worship

The beauty of our Outdoor Chapel is perfectly suited for an intimate wedding or small worship service. There is a rustic altar and fixed wooden bench-style seating. Another popular wedding location at the property is a small grove of Redwoods near the river.

There is an application process for weddings and approval must be received from All Saints’ Church. To inquire about availability and pricing, please email info@allsaintscarmel.org. Once the date is approved, a Chapel Use Application may be submitted. Individual Release and COVID-19 Waiver forms are also required for these gatherings (use links below).
