Wonderful place to camp in tent or RV if you can get in. Tough to get reservations anytime during the summer but most Cali locals know that the best weather in California is in the early fall once school is back in. Great grassy sites, Sand Dollar beach right there, a nice weekend for my wife and I.

Quiet at night. A family place (even good if you're solo). Site gave me no more and no less than I needed. The restroom issues mentioned in other reviews had thankfully been resolved by the time of my visit. Good campground host who wanted you to enjoy being there. Beautiful setting with lots of Monterey cypress and pine. Near good...

Plaskett Creek is a lovely campground but we ended up cutting our stay short because of a few issues they are currently having. As mentioned by others, there is a problem with the bathroom facilities. Toilets are locked and porta potties are provided. Problem is the porta potties are almost completely full--within inches of the top. Pretty disgusting not to...

Plaskett Creek and Kirk Creek are our families favorite spots in California. Big Sur is so beautiful and these sites are magical. We love the grassy sites as the kids do not get as dirty as they usually do. The sites are also perfectly shaded so you are not too hot or too cold. It is a short (but slightly...

Big Sur is beautiful, and for someone who lives on the Central Coast (about an hour and a half, two hours south) Plaskett Creek is a great way to experience Big Sur camping without having to drive for days and days. The setting is gorgeous, you have the campground set in the pines with both sun and shade and there...

This review is to just BEG people to be careful with fires this year. Campers at Plasket are notorious for leaving fires burning, burning fires where they shouldn't, and leaving their dirt TP for locals to clean up when they leave. This is particularly true for the unofficial campsites up Plasket Ridge Road. We are all holding our breath this...

This medium-sized campground features spacious sites, grassy meadows on the inner loops and lots of shade trees. I don't think there are any bad sites, but some are steeply sloped (25, 27, 32) that might be a challenge to fit a large tent. The amiable camp hosts keep the place in good order, bathrooms were clean, no late night rowdies,...

We camped here at the beginning of November, mid-week, and got a great campsite (#13) w/o booking a reservation. We had sunny, warm weather and clear, starry nights. The few other campers were mostly in tents so it was a quiet, peaceful experience, complete with Monarch Butterflies fluttering everywhere-- so pretty! I walked our dog off leash on the cliff...

What a brilliant place to stay, and what an amazing host (Rhonda). She was such a help to us, and someone for the owners to treasure. Someone in her position can make or break your stay, and she did everything right. The place is clean, and plenty of choice - if you book early enough. I do suggest booking the...

Relaxing experiance. If you want to be away from the crowds, pick sites 32 or 33. 32 does have a bit of a slopewhere the tents can be put but so beautifull and there is green grass for the kids to play. Group site 1 is the most private but no view of the ocean. Walking distance to the beach...
