Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, home of Big Sur Lodge, sits on the western slope of the Santa Lucia Mountains. The peaks of Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park tower high above the Big Sur River Gorge, where the Big Sur River enters this visually spectacular park.
The park’s campground offers more than 175 campsites to accommodate hikers, bikers, tent campers and RVers. Many campsites are located along the Big Sur River. Two group tent sites and a hike/bike site are also available, but no RVs are allowed in these sites.
Whether you’re a one-day visitor, staying in one of the 62 guestrooms at Big Sur Lodge, or camped out in the park, you can walk along the banks of the river and among the magnificent redwoods, conifers, oaks, sycamores, cottonwoods, maples, alders, and willows.
You’ll also enjoy many scenic trails that appeal to hikers of all levels, including a self-guided nature trail. With wildlife that includes bobcats, black-tail deer, and wild turkeys to the endangered California condor or American bald eagle soaring above, it’s no wonder Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park is a nature lover’s paradise.
