    This is the place!

    This is the best campground. Dog friendly even in most of the cabin options. The staff are friendly period. There is a camp store and a food truck. The cabin had bedding, pots, dishes, etc so that helped reduce packing and leave room in the car for the dogs to come. There is a beautiful calm river to play in. We hardly left the campground it was so much fun! The dogs enjoyed watching the stellar jays by day and we spotted a fox outside at night--so special! We camp Big Sur every year and this campground is our newly discovered jewel and go to. We even love the quiet hours and family atmosphere.
