Had a terrible experience last night at this campsite! When we arrived the guy at the front desk gave us a late arrivals form and told us to pay in the morning so we set up camp and went to bed. In the middle of the night, at about 11 o'clock, workers from the campsite knocked on our door insisting...

Pulling up to the camp ground we were greeted by a very welcoming and friendly staff! We were first time RV'ers and the grounds had just we what we were looking for in amenities. Tucked within the vast redwood trees, there was quite and calm away from the busy highway. Even though the place was full it was still quite...

I am one of those people who always finds the positive in everything and if you look at my reviews, you will see that I rarely have anything really negative to say. I really make an attempt to be objective about my experiences. The three days I spent at Big Sur Campground and Cabins was without doubt the worst experience...

Went on a road trip from LA to Oregon and stayed here on the way down on the last night of the trip. This place is something else, I woke up wishing I could stay one more night. It's absolutely beautiful and the camping spots are all perfect. I didn't see a single one I didn't like. You're sleeping under...

The staff was amazing! Cabin 65b was clean and well cared for!! No cell service was great for us!! Highly recommended!! We loved the cabin choices but the camp sites looked beautiful too. Would also recommend the walk to the Maiden Public House!

Campground was small. Just like we like it. The river front sites were very tight. But nice to have the river at you door step. The people running it were Extremely nice. Cute little gif shop. Very close to All sites of Big Sur, and Carmel and Monterey.

The perfect campground to stay at while being in the Big Sur. We called from the Netherlands to make a reservation. For the future it would be great to be able to do this online. When we arrived we got a perfect spot. Surrounded by many very big trees with the facilities of a picknicktable and a barbecue. It is...

We stayed in Monterey and drove down the coast. It's a great drive with some stunning views. The Big Sur area is so nice, peaceful with the giant redwoods. There is camping and cabins to stay in and the hiking is fantastic. This is a must see.

We booked cabin 102 for 2 nights in late September. What a time to be in Big Sur, the weather could not be more perfect. The cabin was pretty perfect too, nicely furnished, comfy and cute, rustic but no corners of comfort are cut - the beds are great. The cabin overlooks the burbling Big Sur river which was pretty...

Very basic and small but cute clean, cozy cabin in the woods. Staff friendly and helpful with finding us an iron to iron a shirt for a wedding we were attending. River was too low to swim in which was a shame
