Excellent Camping in Big Sur

The site was beautiful, with many nice trails scattered about within the park. The lodge is not too far in case of any purchasing needs. Besides our loud neighbors, I would say that my group had an excellent time.

Calm, relaxing

Visited in July and was not crowded. Was able to take the dog on a few trails.

Beautiful area, crowded

Be careful on which site you pick, although on line doesn't explain well. Mine was on a bad slope and no way to level. Very crowded. Wood laying around all over but you cant use it. They want you to spend $10 on their wood. Drought has killed all grass, so lots of dirt. Tight roads wouldn't recommend anything over 28ft, and forget a trailer. Nasty black flies.

Peaceful Hike and Bike Camping

With a stream running near the hike and bike camping area and tall trees offering a cool shade it is a wonderful reprieve from the outside world.  The campground features a nice restaurant and gift shop/store. The hike and section area has a convenient restroom and shower area, a sink for washing items, a bear box, and a water faucet.

Clean , family fun campground

Gorgeous Mountain View

This campground is a gem in the middle of the Big Sur area. Gorgeous walking trails. Beautiful Mountain View’s. Nice and spacious campsites!

Comfortable and Scenic

During months with lots of seaweed in the beach, the campground gets infested with kelp flies. I recommend calling ahead of time.

Nature at its best

Our favorite place to camp - period. It has it all. Beautiful campsites, creek to explore or cool, short drive to perfect beach and safe lagoon! We’ve been there escaping the summer heat and winter doldrums. perfect. Shhh…don’t tell anyone 😊

Close to Big Sur

The facilities and sites were very nice, but it was extremely busy.

Trial by toilet paper

Campsites are adequate, but close together. Showers and toilets are individual, but stayed dirty. Toilet paper became a premium as the day turned to night. No soap at all, but there was hot water. The location in relation to the sea is good, but I’ll stay somewhere else next time.
