“Wanted to stay forever ”

I have wanted to camp here ever since traveling out west for the first time eight years ago. We finally made it happen and wish we could have stayed indefinitely. Make sure to fill up with gas before heading to the campground. Hwy 1 is currently open from the north but closed from the south. There are literally "road ends" barricades u... more

“Spectacular”

Reviewed Dec 17, 2015

Overall Rating

One of the top ten on my camping list and I've stayed here many times. Spectacular views from just about any site. The vibe here is totally worth any negatives. The campground is small and can get busy, and it's in the middle of nowhere sandwiched on a bluff between the ocean and a twisty cliff-side highway. No cell service, no paypho... more

Overall Rating

We love this campground. It's perched up on a cliff overlooking the ocean with incredible panoramic views. We usually go in late fall/early winter when the whales are migrating. Some of the sites are close together, and some have rather un-level ground, so if your sleeping area is on wheels, look at the sites carefully and/or brin... more

“Busy Campground”

Reviewed Aug 01, 2014

Overall Rating

Much of Kirk Creek Campground is first come first serve. We arrived at 11:30am and got the last site available. If we had known before we paid, we probably would have gone up the hill and boondocked for free.

The location is great for exploring Big Sur. The trail down to the beach is beautiful.
