Stayed for 3 days 2 night. We had two spots for tent camping. Spots are spacious, come with a picnic table and fire ring. Bathrooms were always very clean and toilet paper stocked. The grounds are well maintained and clean. Staff was very nice and helpful. There was always fresh baked cookies at the front office for purchase. In the... More

When we first drove in to the Big Sur Campground, I thought oh no big mistake - but after checking in and finding our cabin the charm of the place hit. Our cabin, number 54 was spotless, bright and happy. We had a wonderful porch with chairs, a picnic table, and fire pit plus giant redwoods surrounding us. Sleeping with... More

I seriously want to move into one of the cabins and never leave. We camped when we stayed there but the cabins look really great. Camping was great, we had a spot right on the river. If you are a hammock camper this place is a good bet. I looked at all the sites and most were very hammock friendly.... More

Stayed in a cabin with two young children. The cabin was so cute, and clean! Not like other cabins I've stayed in. The kitchen appliances and equipment were very clean, new and everything we needed was provided in the kitchen. Loved waking up in the morning to look out at the Redwoods. Kids had a blast in the river with... More

We stayed here for 1 night during our trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. After leaving the city we never expected to get in such a remote-like location that fast. The roads in Big Sur weren't that busy and it was the same for the campground. Not all places were occupied, making it a very nice and calm campground.... More

Did not like this campgrounds reservation policy and rude management. Save your money and go elsewhere. So many beautiful campgrounds run by kinder people. Too bad some people feel the need to justify their greed at the expense of family vacations!

We only stayed here a night, but easily could of stayed for longer, we had a 4 person lodge - it was great, everything you need, beds were comfy and the bathroom was great! The area is very quiet and there is a policy between 10pm-8am which is quiet time. But the grounds are great, small shop onsite where you... More

The campsite was kept very clean. The campground is also very quiet. The bathrooms and showers were the nicest campground bathrooms I've ever seen! I think big sur is something beautiful to see but it's not a place I would go back to. This campsite was in my opinion over priced. They are strict on their fishing season up there.

We booked an RV river front site last January for my daughters birthday weekend in May. They only take reservations on the phone and did not mail me a confirmation as promised. After traveling 4 hours in the car with 4 children we were excited to finally arrive. When we checked in at the gate they immediately told us that... More

Stopped here late on a Saturday afternoon and was thrilled they had one campsite left! Reasonable price ($60), very helpful/friendly staff, clean facilities, beautiful trees. They're located close to a small general store and restaurant, as well, which was very convenient. My only complaint is that I wish I had more time to spend here!
