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!

Nice campground!! Lots of spaces, clean bathrooms. Firewood available. The dogs and I had a wonderful time camping. Beware the stellar jays are excellent camp robbers!! Beautiful spot! Clean, quiet and good hikes all round!

We thought staying in a cabin under the redwoods would be fun as we did the hwy 1 experience. I made reservations a month ahead and paid the full price (over $350) when I made the reservation. When we arrived the person at check in told me there had been an increase in the price and I owed $11.00 more...Are... More

We just spent three nights in one of their cabins. The people at check-in were delightful; they answered all kinds of questions about where to eat dinner and where to hike (they even opened a bottle of wine for us since we forgot our corkscrew!) We loved the free coffee everyday. The cabin was perfect; it looks brand new. Totally... More

This place is the worst campground I have ever stayed at! Its the most expensive too, $55 a single campsite! The place feels more like a party venue and not a campground. People party here all night so forget about sleeping unless you have an RV and can close all the windows! Its always busy here so you have cars... More

When I think of an ideal experience at any hotel/vacation rental etc this place place exemplifies those expectations. The grounds have been well looked after and while I was there they were doing some maintenance and improvements as well. We stayed in one of their 'camping cabins' which is a structure with a queen bed and electricity in a normal... More

I stayed in Cabin 54 (two queens, bathroom). I was prepared for something old and rustic, but this place was so immaculate and felt "new", like we were the first to ever stay there! The shower was also great. The fireplace was cozy and the grounds were peaceful. Loved the river and amazing view of the stars. They gave complimentary... More
