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

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
