I stayed here with my wife for the weekend as we were attending a wedding in Big Sur. We stayed in a cabin, which was pretty nice and spacious. We were not here to camp, but got to see enough of the grounds to get a sense of the camping experience at the location. It is a fairly crowded place... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in August. I was a bit worried as there are mixed reviews on this site and we had cabin 65A which shares a fire pit and deck area with 65B (all the other cabins have private fire pits and deck areas.) Please note that the entire area of Big Sur is very expensive and... More

We will now choose cabins over tents forever but a site that overlooked the river prior to our three hikes in 2 days. Close to everything that is Big Sur.... Make sure you go to the outdoor concerts very close by and the Henry Miller Library. We saw RHCP there.

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
