Okay, so when I first booked a cabin at the Riverside Campground and Cabins I was a little bit upset that our cabin would cost $150 per night, plus tax, plus $15 a night for my 5 lb Pomeranian. Of course we had to get the most expensive cabin because we booked two days before our trip and it was the only one left. When I actually got there I was a little bit upset because I expected more out of a cabin that was the price of a hotel room. And the worst part, our expensive cabin lacked a firepit! What's camping without a firepit! But after a two-night stay I really grew to love the campgrounds, cabin, and of course the beautiful scenery and ambience of the Big Sur forest and coastline.
The front office guy was very helpful and allowed us to use a vacant campsite's firepit for the two nights. Oh, if you get a cabin and you really want your own firepit, don't stay in cabins 10 or 11 because they are the only two without one, and ironically the most expensive ones. We could've moved to cabin 9 which had a firepit and was cheaper, but had no private bathroom or shower!
I don't have the usual complaints of other campers at this site such as crowds, loud people, and kids because we had the luxury of our own cabin, deck, bathroom, shower, and kitchen. That's what we paid the big bucks for! The cabin was clean and quaint. The water pressure and hot shower was welcomed in the cold Big Sur morning. So all in all it was a good trip. I was looking to go camping but not to rough it. So a cabin in the woods was perfect!
