This was technically my first time camping, although we did have an RV so it wan't real camping I'm told. But we had 2 sites (10 and 11) because we had a total of 9 people and a dog. These two sites were spacious because we had room for cars, RV and 3 tents. We mostly stayed around site 11 and just setup the tents at site 10. We didn't use the table or firepit at 10 because it was too far away. It may have been better for us to get sites 11 and 13.
But most people are correct in that some of the campsites are packed in there. Also, we were across from the playground and there are children playing right at 8am. We also had a pathway down to the river in between our campsites and often had people walking through to get to the river, which was a little annoying. To get an idea of which sites are good or not, check out this review: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g240329-d295074-r8708203-Big_Sur_Campground_Cabins-Big_Sur_California.html#CHECK_RATES_CONT
Other than that, I'm told the bathroom/showers were some of the cleanest.
