Our tent campsite was 30 Ft. by 50 Ft. Other campsites were on the other side of a logs from us (4 of them). I'm used to camping to be out in a forest. Although there were a lot of redwoods there, the campsites were just too darned small and close together for me. People with children would like it... More

We stayed in the tent cabins and thought it was a wonderful place. We loved camping out right under the beautiful redwoods and two of the three nights were quiet, peaceful, and lovely. The last night however, there was a group of rowdy, noisy people nearby who partied into the night and kept us awake for several hours. We were... More

We stayed in an RV at the Big Sur Camp ground and had a fantastic 2 nights there. Beautiful setting in the middle of the woods and next to the river. The hosts were very helpful and the site has its own shop to help with any essentials you may need, It is particulalry good for families with a kids... More

We arrived at our favorite camping destination, Big Sur Cabins and Campground on Friday before noon. We were greeted and welcomed back. My husband has been camping here every year since 1968. Me, only since 1974. We have the perfect campsite, surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Our only thoughts are of the sounds of... More

Not a great spot for peace, quite, and privacy, but *fantastic* for the family. The river has easy access and spots for kids of all ages. The playground is full of kids, the basketball court has all kinds of balls, 10' baskets and a 5' basket, and the campground roads are wide and safe enough for kids to bicycle. The... More

Admittedly, we arrived at the campground one day after a rainstorm, so the fact that the campsite was extremely muddy is not really their fault. However, there were sitting puddles of water (even after a couple days w/out rain), which could have been avoided with more regular maintenance on the part of the owners / managers. We found that the... More

This looks like a refugee camp. The owners are of course trying to maximize their profits by cramming as many people as possible into this very small campground. Kids wouldn't know the difference; it's the parents who have to adjust to the situation and tolerate the stress of the incredible overcrowding. It's a huge shame, but that's how it is.... More

This is the 5th time I have stayed here though the 1st in about 16 years. I have tent camped, used a cabin and stayed in the A Frame for my honeymoon 23 years ago....and everytime it is the same...clean, friendly and peaceful. This year there were landslides etc and so they honored an off-season price which they certainly did... More

The worst thing about the big sur cabin and campgrounds was that we only stayed 1 night! We stayed in a tent cabin that was right on the river. I was surprised we liked this as we are not outdoorsy people but it was so much fun. Tubing on the river was great. In the night we bought marshmellows from... More

My partner and I travelled from Los Angeles up to San Fransisco on the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), and decided that a mini-break at Big Sur would be an ideal way to rest and recuperate...and we were right! It was the quintessential cabin getaway, with a river running through the bottom of the campground, right near our cabin. It was... More
