Our tent saw duty for the first time on this cozy site at the private
Big Sur Campgrounds & Cabins.
In California, the state and national parks all share an
online reservation system
which guarantees that campsites are fully booked far in advance
(as much as 8 months for some choice spots). Fortunately, this place is
still old-fashioned enough that a short-notice phone call nabbed us two
nights, midweek, before they filled up again.
