  • Best of 3 worlds... beach... trees... spring fed creek to play in... also super diligent camp hosts this year; extra clean bathrooms and never out if t.p.!
  • Great camping site in Big Sur. Campsites are cost together but very enjoyable. 3 short hikes are nearby and a few longer hinges are also accessible.
  • Good easy access. We did short hike with toddler and pregnant lady to waterfalls. Some creek crossings necessary with planks and sticks to walk on to stay dry. Beach is awesome. Not fine sand but boulders plus small grey pebbles that warmed quite nicely in sun and felt great on feet.
  • Awesome campground tucked away in a cliffside south of Big Sur. They even have spots right next to the beach... May have to deal with car noise until the later hours though.
  • Beautiful campground and park. The redwood sites are along a creek, I highly recommend them. There are hikes within the campground that lead to a gorgeous waterfall and cool old limekilns that contributed to the building of old sf buildings.
