Pfeiffer Big Sur Campground is a stunning campground in a rugged section of the Central California coastline and one of the most epic stops along the Highway 1 route. Here campers have the opportunity to unwind and relax at spacious campsites scattered amongst ancient redwood trees which is a dream come true for any nature lover in California.
Before you head out on a road trip of a lifetime, here are some important visitor tips to keep in mind.
Pfeiffer Big Sur Campground is quite large compared to other campgrounds that we’ve stayed at in California. This scenic campground offers 189 tent and RV sites along with restrooms, showers, a restaurant on-premises, a couple of camp stores where you can buy camping goods, and even a laundromat.
Pfeiffer Big Sur Campground is located off the famous Highway 1 that travels along the rugged Big Sur coastline. It’s about a 5–6 hour drive from Los Angeles but the drive often takes much longer due to windy roads and jaw-dropping viewpoints that you’ll want to check out along the way.
If you want to head on a relaxing getaway (but skip the “roughing it” part), you also have the option to stay at the Big Sur Lodge which is located next to the campground. Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park is one of the few State Parks that offers alternative accommodation to standard campsites.
Don’t feel like cooking yet craving something delicious? Homestead Restaurant is a cozy restaurant located within the campground that is open to everyone whether you’re staying at the lodge or camping in a tent.
