Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, Big Sur Reviews - Write a Review

  • sick place!!! went here last year with the family. very cool views and fresh air... perfect to come chill for weekend.. a lot of terrain to take the little ones to explore mother nature. coming here is a must if you live in California. I came all the way from Fresno.

  • It is the most stunning, gorgeous place to visit. Very crowded people. Parking lot charge $10 all day anywhere in Big Sur and always full parking, but it is worth going there!

  • Beautiful drive. Pines and green scenery everywhere. Will like to make a camping trip out here!

  • What a beautiful hiking spot among the redwoods. Truly a peaceful and easy place to access nature.

  • Beautiful park. Still recovering from the fires, so some trails are closed. Still worth it.
