On our way through California we knew we wanted to stay somewhere in the Big Sur vicinity and do something a little more outdoors. From our home in boston we did enough research to know that this campground and cabin spot was for us. The booking was easy (we made it nearly 6 months before the trip). Full disclosure, we stayed there two night, one night in a cabin and one night in a tent cabin. The first night we stayed in the cabin, which had one parking spot, and a front porch with a fire pit right outside the door. The cabin was heated via a gas fireplace which was night as it was a chilly night. The cabin was as clean and was stocked with all the necessities. Linens were provided and the bed was freshly made and the like. The bathroom was actually as nice as the one from the hotel in San Fran we just came from.
The second night we stayed in a tent cabin, and after a ten mile hike through a nearby state park we slept wonderful. Keep in mid the ten cabin is not heated but does has the clean linens and a freshly made bed. Again the fire pit was right outside the porch area. The fire pits cam in handy for cooking dinner each night as we didn't bring camping equipment with us across the country. Keep in mind that these tent cabins don't have bathrooms so use of the communal facilities are necessary. The showers were clean and well taken care of!
The park is kind of in the middle of nowhere so bring plenty of food even though there is a "store" at the campground. The store sells camping stuff and a small amount of snacks and refreshments.
Great place to spend a few nights and explore!
