DescriptionPfeiffer Big Sur State Park has 1,006 acres of redwood, oak, chaparral, and meadow areas. Hikers can enjoy 8 miles of hiking trails within the park and over 200 miles of trails in the Ventana Wilderness (USFS) which borders the park. Overlooks provide views of the Big Sur Valley and the Big Sur River Gorge. There is no coastal access from this park.
For larger groups, two tent-only, walk-in Group Campsites are available for reservation. These campsites feature a large camping area, picnic tables, flush toilets, and access to one small amphitheater.
When the campground is full, en route camping may be available for vehicles with onboard flush toilets (usually motor homes and trailers). This is from 5 PM to 9 AM, maximum 1 night stay. The fee is the same as the campsite fee.
Fishing in the area is highly restricted. See Department of Fish and Game regulations for fishing information.
The concessionaire-operated Big Sur Lodge offers motel-type cottage accommodations (1-800-424-4787).
