Wanted to drive through to look at the sites as is our usual way to decide but the VERY rude man at the entrance booth would not allow it. We will NOT be camping there. We've warned others in our camping groups the same thing.

What a beautiful campground. Dawnette and her husband the camp host were extremely helpful and was able to score us a spot since we didn't have a reservation. The second night we moved to the most beautiful and best spot #29. We watched a deer and her fawn eat nearby. The soothing sound of the creek the trees plus on the other side of the campground was a beautiful beach. They have 3 hiking trails we took which were easy. Loved the waterfall hike. My husband and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary since our Hawaii trip was scrapped due to Covid-19. I feel we had a much better time seeing Big Sur and the California coastline than going to Hawaii and the best part was camping at Limekiln Campground.

Spent a couple of hours exploring this small park....beautiful waterfall is a bout a 20 minute easy-moderate hike and you spend the time by the river and surrounded by redwoods and sequoias.

I was wandering and hoping the camp will have real bathroom and not a hole in the ground. I was looking for pictures on trip advisor to find out and found none. So I decided to post for people like me that stuff like that is of interest.
The bathrooms were very clean and had plenty of toilet papers. The women's shower was out of order but the men's worked. It even had hot water. There is no light in the bathroom and it gets pretty dark in there (even before its dark outside). No soap dispenser (maybe just because of Covid 19?).

Beautiful park with small campsites.

The ranger there is awful and made 2 out of 3 day trip, stressful.

The ranger had a very sour attitude because we pulled out some chairs to sit in front of our car instead of using the picnic tables to wait for camp sites to open up. She told us we were becoming a nuisance. Very uncalled for.

When we finally secured the camp sites we were told it was 2 cars per site and can renew before noon the next morning. Great.

We were still waiting for the rest of our party to arrive and due to the site not having cell service and the rangers turning them away, we decided to wait at the entrance but the ranger got annoyed because we kept pinging her phone.

On the second morning the rest of our party arrived but that annoyed her that we broke the car limit rules (which we did not) and proceeded to lie and say the site we currently occupy is reserved and we need to be packed up by noon.

We had convince her that weren’t trying to do anything malicious nor bending any rules for us to stay. She took down our license plates and photocopies of everyone’s driver license. I will never come back. It’s a shame because the site is very nice. This particular ranger, which I overheard another ranger call “the bull”, not so much.
