Pam welcomed & greeted us and made us feel immediately right at home for our three-day stay. Dog-friendly and pet-tolerant, the river is close by and the banks clean. Camp Store is nicely stocked, the woman who runs it super friendly, and be sure to stop and say hello to Casper, her big white puffball of a dog. Cabin was... More

We just returned from a weekend here and had a great time. We had a generously sized tent size ( #16). The location was great for us as it was at the end, and right across ( but not on ) the river. A picnic table and fire pit was included. We brought our golden who was super happy to... More

We love Big Sur, and really enjoyed Cabin 2 last year. This year we couldn't get #2, so we had a cabin with 2 shared walls in Cabin 4. It was still sweet, but the walls were pretty thin. We could hear the couple next door arguing all night. Nonetheless, we enjoyed the location immensely!

Very fun place right on the rushing river. Cabin was quite small but clean and beds were comfortable. we took our dog who loved it! People were very friendly and you can make a fire (they sell wood). Beautiful setting if you can't be right on ocean.

Several cabins were booked for the wedding party members and some attendees, including our family. Some families also chose to camp at the site which accommodates tent or RV camping. We had a chance to see four different cabins during our stay running the range in cabins sizes offered. Any housing besides camping runs on the high side in the... More

We had a fantastic 2 night stay at the Riverside Campground. My girlfriend, our dog (gary), and I stayed in one of their cabins and we had an amazing time. The cabin is rustic and comfortable and it was perfect for our version of camping. We took full advantage of the firepit and cooked dinner over the fire for both... More

I gave this place five stars because the staff was so helpful! I had booked a cabin without a bathroom (was supposed to use shared facilities) but since there was a storm coming in that night they upgraded me to a cabin with its own bathroom. They even called ahead to see when I was arriving to turn on the... More

We visited the campground for one night only and I wish we had more time to stay and explore both the campgrounds and the areas surrounding it. We stayed at Cabin 5, which is a two bed, no bath cabin. It is on the bottom floor, so we could hear every step our neighbors in the top units made, which... More

This was a pretty setting and very peaceful our first night. The camp store is great, very well stocked. The problem we had was on the weekend the camp was overrun by people. There were multiple cars on each site, tents everywhere including on the river. It became a parking lot overrun by families with a lot of children. I... More

1) You don’t want to breathe campfire smoke all night: because most of the cabins are situated on the mountainside, you’ll have to breathe the smoke of all campfires located at the base. I’ll tell you this: the ash you’ll see when you arrive on the terrace is a preview of what you’ll have in your lungs the next morning.... More
