Great views of the coast. You do have to cross the highway to get to the beach, but it's not a busy stretch. Bathrooms are weird... very big, with only sink and toilet, no electricity. Kind of in the middle of no where when it comes to grocery stores and gas.

Booked Plaskett creek as our first booking at a different camp site was cancelled due to the forest fires, I really loved the location right across from the beach and it was so nice hearing the sea at night when going to sleep and waking up to it in the mornings, As it is not a big campsite it was...

We split our time between Plaskett and Kirk Creek. Loved both. This site is on the side of the highway away from the beach. Lots of shade, potable water, and flush toilets. A lot of families seem to come here, but there is plenty of space, and the atmosphere was lovely. I can't stress how great it is to have...

I decided on this campground as an introduction to the Big Sur area. I had a terrible time trying to get my trailer into a space that was big enough based on the campsite overview. When a ranger simply suggested that I disconnect the trailer and reset my truck to try a different approach his supervisor removed him from the...

I showed up 10pm on Memorial Day weekend and sweet talked a spot to park the juicy camper van. Score! Great spot to camp with kids. It has a nice beach across the street for the central California coast for fishing or surfing.

If you can't get into Julia Pfeiffer Campground in Big Sur, or you're heading North on Hwy 1 and don't want to deal with all the traffic and curves, try Plaskett. Great campground and well kept. New bathrooms, no showers though. Grass is green, dry camping only but most of the sites will fit a small RV. Ours is 26...

We go with a large number of families and stay at one of the large group sites. It's sometimes cold, but usually gorgeous, so just plan accordingly. We have a great time, no cell service whatsoever.. And it's so good for the very large group of kids we bring. Great hiking, beach across the street. Highly recommend. Bathrooms in group...

I camped at the hike-bike campsite here for one night. Overall it was a pleasant experience except for that the squirrels ransacked my panniers. But it was my fault: I underestimated their ability to get into my all-buckled-up panniers. There is running water and toilet. The campsite faces the entrance directly, which means you'll see and hear cars very easily....

Great location as it's right across Hwy 1 from a beautiful beach within easy access. The campground itself is very well maintained, especially for the amount the people that were there when we stayed. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, and the sites were clean. Reserve early because the sites fill up quickly, especially on weekends!
