Big Sur Campground offers a few cabins for lodging, in addition to the traditional campground for tent and RV camping. We stayed in cabin C, which is an A-frame cabin with full kitchen / dining / double bed, and two lofts with twin beds in each. The campground is right on a small creek, with inner tubes for rent.
The campground is right on Highway 1, and in the most scenic area of Hwy 1 in California. We used it as our base for visiting the Big Sur area, Carmel, and Monterey.
The pricing is not cheap, our room approaching nearly $400 / night. Even though we had an enjoyable visit, I considered the price to be out of line with the rest of our California visit (this was the most expensive place and we stayed in San Francisco for much less). However, it was one of the few lodging options in the area that accepted a family with teenagers. Many of the lodging options in / around Big Sur are adults only.
The staff at this campground were among the most friendly people we encountered during our stay. They always greeted us warmly, had helpful tips and information about the area, and made us feel like they really enjoyed seeing us. This made our stay quite pleasant and comfortable.
Even though the price was high, we would definitely consider coming here again.
