Located within the Redwood trees along the Big Sur River, this family friendly campground gives you tent and RV camping right on the forest floor! There are also several styles of cabins available should you be wanting a bit more "home grown".

Then of course, there are the cabins that give you that camping experience in the forest without having to bring any gear and supplies. Just turn up and relax!

Also at Big Sur Campground, kids might love to enjoy an afternoon os swimming, or take advantage of those inner tubes that you can rent. Tell stories around the campfire, or play some basketball and volleyball. If kids STILL have energy, they can spend some time on the playground, with swings, slides, and plenty of places to climb! 

If you're going to camp, you may as well enjoy it somewhere beautiful!
