    Great views of the coast. You do have to cross the highway to get to the beach, but it's not a busy stretch. Bathrooms are weird... very big, with only sink and toilet, no electricity. Kind of in the middle of no where when it...More

    We split our time between Plaskett and Kirk Creek. Loved both. This site is on the side of the highway away from the beach. Lots of shade, potable water, and flush toilets. A lot of families seem to come here, but there is plenty of...More

    I decided on this campground as an introduction to the Big Sur area. I had a terrible time trying to get my trailer into a space that was big enough based on the campsite overview. When a ranger simply suggested that I disconnect the trailer...More

    I showed up 10pm on Memorial Day weekend and sweet talked a spot to park the juicy camper van. Score! Great spot to camp with kids. It has a nice beach across the street for the central California coast for fishing or surfing.

    Does plaskett Creek still flow through the lower camp behind campsite One? I remember an old oak tree on the west side of that space. My dog Spike climbed it then couldn't get back down. Dad had to reach up and get him to jump into his arms. Granted it was in the 19 60's, but oh, how we loved that campground. Does anyone remember Ranger Ralph Gould? he was a wonderfully informative gentleman and kept we two youngest girls from going into places where there were poisonous snakes and spiders. we learned a,lot in those days of halcyon childhood. Anyone have a photo of that creek? Would love to see how it's fared after all these years. Thank you for your time...Charleen Miller, Bakersfield CA.

    What is the earliest you have to be at this campground to get a spot? I am driving from 6 hours away solo and I would really love to stay here for a night or two but reservations are booked.
