We stayed in this campsite in our RV for only one night. It is a beautiful little venue tucked away in the Redwoods on the Big Sur, off Highway 1. We arrived quite late and had to leave early in the morning so we couldn't take advantage of the fun to be had on the river. We loved the ambiance... More

We have been there several times to join our family for family reunions. Quite frankly, with all the beautiful places to camp on the coast, I wish the family reunion site would change from this location. Although nestled in the nice redwoods, my stuff and myself always leave their dirty due to the high degree of dust and duet there.... More

This campground is amazing. Right on the river, site #7 is my favorite. All the staff are very friendly. There is a basketball court with balls, a great playground, clean showers and free coffee (bring a cup!). They have tube rentals for the river. They have a soft-serve machine that my kids love. the sites each have a fire ring... More

Really relaxed, in the middle of the redwoods. Nice and quiet (10pm to 8am) and very well serviced. Talk to Wade if you want tips on motorcycle routes. No wi-fi and no cellphone reception, and you might find that quite relaxing.

This is a very nice campsite in Big Sur - good location near restaurants and walking trails, clean showers and helpful staff. However I think $30 a night is expensive for a two man tent - although Big Sur in general is an expensive place.

This place is truly nice. It has campsites, cabins and RV sites. The river runs just nearby and some cabins and campsites are actually on the river. We stayed in a one bedroom cabin which was clean, warm and cozy. We had a fire each night outside and enjoyed our time. There are basketball courts, laundry facilities, showers, and even... More

I don't know what kind of crazy some of these people are, but Big Sur Campground and Cabins is awesome. I've stayed here every year for the past 15 years. Why? Because it's amazing. If you are a group of young people who love to stay up late and party, then this place is not for you. I have stayed... More

We stayed at Big Sur Campground And Cabins in May of 2013 for 28 days, and thoroughly enjoyed every moment there. If you are looking for 5 star hotel treatment, with 24 hour room service, then this place is possibly not for you. Equally, if you fancy a rugged, Robinson Crusoe type experience, with jungle type isolation, you are going... More

Just got back from camping at this beautiful, cozy spot. They have big lots with tons of gorgeous Sequoia trees. There's a river that runs right in the campgrounds, so grab one of their innertubes and just be lazy. The kids will love a huge jungle gym that's sure to please. Forgot something; pancake mix, smores, firewood, ice, condements, etc,... More
