We liked the site a lot. Right in the middle of the red wood trees. Big sites and nice facilities. The welcome was good a nice lady at the gate that helped us and showed us places of interest. The good thing is that the gate is manned from 8 till 8, unlike a lot of campsites we went to,... More

Our family has camped here for the past 4 years and loved it. The campground itself is clean and family friendly. This last trip however we were shocked to find a $20 increase per site. Along with the additional car and people fees the cost per site came out to over $100 a night. I made our reservations last year... More

We drove Highway 1 and chose this place to stay for 2 nights in Sept. It was absolutely wonderful! Better than I imagined it would be. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The cabins are also very very clean and comfortable. We were in #70 which was a good spot...close to entrance, river and laundry facility. There is a... More

We really enjoyed staying here because it was a nice surprise to suddenly be in the redwoods. We drove down highway 1 through cold, foggy, cloudy (which we also loved ) skies to vibrant, bright blue skies with majestic redwoods reaching out to touch them. It was a spontaneous decision to stay and that adds to the fun. After our... More

Driving highway 1 we spent one night in the camping cabin looking forward to the see through ceiling on the cabin. Although the ceiling was not as see through as I had hope, we could see the glow of the stars. The river was just steps away from our deck and fire pit. Looking up in the silence of the... More

Hard to leave. That's the best phrase to describe this place. We've stayed in the cabins on two separate occasions; one of the two-beds, and then a single, and both times they were excellent. Quiet campground, lovely amidst the redwoods, the place has new cabins facilities, clean, well-maintained. Will be back over and over -- one of my favorite places... More

I recommend avoiding this spot, and here's why: the customer service and management are awful. Buyer beware: once you hand over your credit card, forget getting any satisfaction if you have a problem with a cabin's facilities! The cabins are very expensive and you'll be required to put down a deposit first and then to pay in full when you... More

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.
