Beautiful place

Beautiful place. Felt safe and comfortable. Bathrooms are clean. There is a small store to purchase basics

Great 1 night trip

Moderate hike to an amazing place! Just be careful not to soak to long or you'll have blisters on the way out

Huge campground

This is another favorite of my Big Sur stops. If you're with a big group, this campground has lots of tent sites and plenty of room to host multiple campers. I think each site has a limit of 3 tents (that could be wrong, but I remember the number being lower), but even coming up in the middle of Spring Break we didn't struggle too hard to get a campsite.

The campsite is close to some trails and is across from the iconic Big Sur waterfall. If you get the chance to camp here, I highly suggest walking across the street to check out the waterfall. There's a lso a nearby trail right at the head of the campground. The trail weaves up into the mountains and has a beautiful view of the ocean from higher up. There's still a lot of fire damage along the trail, but it's cool to see how the forest has re grown since.

AMAZING IN THE MORNINGS

I don't know what it is, but this place just has the most insane light during the sunrise.

Magical Views

Camping off the PCH has panoramic views of Big Sur’s rocky coastline. Site 1 is directly above the falls, you can't actually see them, but it's a short 5-minute hike to get a look at them.) You will be mesmerized by the majestic mountains, beautiful blue ocean and the redwoods. The sites are booked 6-8 months in advance. The best part is being so secluded and Sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking, at night it is a Navy color dark with bright stars over the ocean. Tons of hiking trails, animal life and waterfalls. Spotty to No cell on the PCH service, so download a map for offline use or bring one. This is my by far favorite places.

Big Sur, Yes Sir!

Right in the middle of Big Sur, Besides the need for new bathrooms and showers as most CA state parks. They could also through down some gravel to help with the mud at some sites. However beautiful park with great hikes….Happy New Year!

Great Location with Private Enough Spaces and World Famous Coastal Sights

Be sure to pack in what you need, the stores along the route 1 are expensive. Plan ahead and you can enjoy everything this location has to offer. Don't drive on holidays or weekends if you can avoid it, in or out, since the traffic is incredibly thick during these times.

The redwoods are stunning

Conveniently located along route 1 south of Big Sur, this campground is tucked into a redwood forest. It was quiet, and I wish we'd had more time to explore the park's recreation opportunities.

Huge Campground with Scenic Views

This is a great site. All the spots are separated enough to give you privacy. It is near the beach that has the best sunset views and pace to play in the water.
