“Great Park, Amazing Location”

Reviewed Jul 09, 2018

Overall Rating

Just spent three nights in this Park with a group of families. The location is amazing. Great access to the California HWY 1 coast. Pfieffer beach (Must Visit) is only 4 miles away. Julia Pfieffer Burns State Park is 20 mins south along the dramatic coast road. The drive in from the North is also awesome.

The campsite we stayed in (55) was extremely level and shaded. Easy to get into with our 30ft trailer. It is opposite the toilets and also had a spigot that was threaded (opposite the site) and made filling up your water tanks easy. The site was close to a little store that had everything and a short walk to multiple shower blocks ($1 for 2 mins).

The site is a 30-second walk to the river that was beautiful to swim/float in and a short walk through the campground to the Gorge.

Although it's a large campground, you felt well spaced out.

AT&T cell service was minimal or non-existent. Sometimes at night, some email came through. Our friends with Verizon has slightly better voice service but also limited data.

The campground has a dump station and also fresh water.

“Could have been great! ”

Reviewed May 14, 2015

Overall Rating

The location of the campground is great - nestled among huge trees with tons of shade and right in Big Sur off of Hwy 1. When we first arrived, we were taken aback by the beauty of the park. We noticed a fair amount of trash on our site left behind by other campers. The conditions of the restroom facilities was also very disappointing - lots of trash, wet toilet paper, and mud in the showers. This campground could have been so much better with a little routine maintenance! We may return in the future, but we'll also be looking for alternative options.

We are camped in Big Sur on the California coastline, but getting here is half the fun! You won’t find a more beautiful road than California Route 1, particularly from Morro Bay to Carmel. If you ha...
