*** Please note that Camping Ground and Cabins are two separate areas and seem to be run as such: there are two receptions, stores and staff - their shared website and the reviews here seems to be the only connection. ***
I stayed at the CAMP GROUND for a few days with my girlfriend in January. As you'd expect for that time of year it was very quiet but unseasonably warm. It's a small place in a picturesque setting with incredibly friendly and helpful staff. The stories about raccoons are true though - don't leave bags of rubbish out overnight!
The camping area is right on the river with half the plots (sites) actually on the riverbank and
there's a stony 'beach' that would be great for kids to play on. The store is tiny and a little pricey as you might expect, but very well stocked. Firewood collection is not allowed so bring your own or buy it when you get there. There are alternative places to shop and a gas station less than a mile away.
In summary, I loved this place. It's a great spot to use as a base while discovering Big Sur, and we'll be back.
