  • Very popular place. Hard to get a campground site in holidays. You need to reserve as soon as it opens to reserve. We are lucky this year our friend got the campsite. The restroom is not so good, but the other facility ok. Close to the beach. The trails in the state park are closed.

  • Lovely campgrounds set within a redwood forest with the Big Sur river running right through. The sites right by the river are amazing, but you can't go wrong with any of the sites. The lodge and store at the main entrance have all the required camping necessities. There are plenty of trails that run through the park. You can access the beach via a short drive to either Big Sur beach or Andrew Molera state park.

  • Beautiful campground with very helpful staff - if you can, try to see it before you stay so you can pick the site you like. Some are very private - others are not. Some are in redwoods, some in the oak grove, some by the river - and some closer to the coin operated hot showers! Enjoy!!!

  • Wind was too strong. Overall the purple sand was really unique and beautiful. Would come again next time.

  • Trees, Creek and trails what's not to like. Had a lovely weekend without a phone or work cutting in. Be sure to take enough water if you are taking on the Mt. Manuel trail.
