This place still uses snail mail aka sending actual paper in the mail, so do not be surprised if you have trouble getting hold of them. We booked a 4person 1 bedroom cabin about 6 months before the actual trip. However, this is in February so if you are booking for the summer

Our friends stayed in the Campground and we stayed in a Cabin. The location is wonderful among the Red Woods. The camping spaces were ample for many types of vehicles. Tables and a fire pit is provided. Our cabin was small, but neat and very clean. We truly enjoyed our stay

Only camped here for 1 night but loved having the beautiful redwoods all around me when I woke up and looked out of my tent. They had a book with all of the local restaurant menus, which was helpful. The gal working at registration suggested the hike out to the beach at Andrew

This is a very family friendly campground. Its clean with bathrooms and showers. Pets are allowed in the campground but not in the cabins. Be prepared if you have to change or reschedule your dates its extremely difficult to get ahold of them as their phone is continually busy

So we stayed in a cabin because before coming our RV broke down. We stayed in cabin 101 what a nice cabin. The bed in bedroom did not sleep well for us so the second and third nights we slept on the bed/couch in the front. We were there for a family gathering and the large lawn

I loved our cabin so much!
This is site 99 as seen from site 100. There are now tall, flowering bushes between the two site
Site 100 and adjacent Cabin 101 with the basketball court behind
Unfortunately no!!! It’s extremely frustrating they need to fix their customer service as far as the phones are concerned.

This time of the year the Steelhead runs start, Big River, etc, I think it's all barbless hooks, catch & release though. Also OK trout fishing but to tell you the truth I wouldn't go there for that, but rather head for the foothills and Sierras, where it's great for trout (10+ varieties), steelhead Kokani, etc. In Big Sur, I'd surf fish or go out on a boat. There are several charters that go out there. Rockfish and Ling Cod (delicious) and plentiful.
