We stayed in cabin #1 for only one night, but are so glad we stretched an extra night out of our long weekend and got to spend a night there. The hospitality was unbeatable. We were warmly welcomed and given an excellent rundown on nearby hikes and other sites. The cabin was adorable, just the right size for a couple.... More

We camped in a tent in a riverside pitch. The campsite was very pretty and I managed to swim in the river. We cooked on a firepit which doubled as a bbq which was fun. The washing up facilities are strange, no sinks but I was told "pans" were avaiable but we managed without one. The shop was well stocked... More

We (2 adults and 2 children) stayed here for 1 night in a small cabin with 2 queen beds. We are not campers but we wanted to experience nature around us. The cabin was small and basic but had decent beds and a hot shower in our room. The cabin and campground area is not large and not much to... More

We camped in Space 9. The spaces have not much between them, and the tent in Space 10 not so very many feet from ours emitted snoring sounds much of the night. The second night I got a handle on that by listening closely to the river running by, which then smoothed out every other sound. It was delightful. If... More

you are at the heart of big sur close to the main attractions. the camp is nice and it's just great to be so close from the river and covered by the gentle shadow of the redwood trees. very friendly welcome and good family atmosphere . a great place to stay for one day or one week

We are inexperienced campers and stayed in one of their cabins. Great for nature lovers who want some comfortable elements, such as nighttime solar lights on paths, fresh coffee in the shop. Super friendly staff, and very clean and comfortable accommodations.

We are a family of four with a 6 month old, first time to big Sur so not familiar with the campgrounds in the area. This was a spur in the moment road trip for us so didn't plan ahead to get a bigger cabin for us, luckily this place had a cabin available online and we had cabin #7.... More

Was just the ticket for us and our RV for an overnighter heading up Big Sur Were 4 of us in a Class A 34ft and were placed in a nice site amongst the trees. Facilities were fine but location is fantastic with the creek and big trees. Sure, we're a little cramped and staff were sometimes hard to find... More

We happened to drive by, so we drove into the campgrounds to check it out.No one in office to speak with, so we took brochures and drove about. Office lady stopped us and was incredibly rude and sarcastic. Unnecessarily so. We were simply checking it out and she hard smart mouth comments and told us to park in front. Of... More

We were lucky to get two good sites on the riverside towards the end of the road and it was beautiful. Sound of the river as you slept, pine trees towering above you, it was serene. There's a spot on the very end that seemed like the ideal spot in the whole campground, try to get it. But the lady... More
