Nothing beats the quiet calm of a campsite in the woods.

Surrounded by redwoods with a perfectly clear stream trickling nearby and the sunlight cutting... read more

We found a picnic table by a creek. Even though there were lots of people in the park that day, we almost felt alone in the wilderness. Lots of trees, a soothing oasis.

This is my favorite campground in the world... been coming here since I was a kid and it always amasses me how serene it is here... it is beautiful, quite, and just a wonderful place to be..... the only bad thing about Big Sur is that we now have a 40ft motorhome and can not get in as the limits are less than 30 foot.. we still pass thru but can not camp there but if you can you should try it!!

Great trails, beautiful trees, great views! Some of the trails and challenging but worth it! You can see the mountains and the trees. I love the Redwoods. Saw tons of Western Blue Birds. Love the waterfall.

There is not much to see here, but if you are driving the Pacific Coast Highway and want to see some redwoods, this is a good place to do it. There is one big tree at the last parking area and then there is a short trail at the front of the park to see some others.

We were disappointed by the lack of signage. For example, the largest tree just has a sign saying its Colonial Redwood. They dont tell you anything else about it.

We are new to the Redwoods and were in awe, looking forward to seeing more at the park than just along the road. We entered and immediately saw wonderful groves of Redwoods. Encouraged by this, we paid the $10.00 fee to enter the park expecting a drive through even better than the entrance. We learned the park was a huge let down unless you were a camper the trails were average at best and poorly marked. The nature center was closed and again poorly marked.
The entrance was beautiful and free, just make a u turn at the gate for campers.
