Stayed three nights at Plaskett Campground mid-September. The wife-and-husband host team was fantastic. We discovered that a campground host really can make such a big impact!
Throughout our stay, the grounds were incredibly clean (bathrooms included) and well maintained. Our hosts checked in and made sure we had everything we needed, and after our stay they gave us the courage we needed to make the scary drive back home seem doable (Naciemento Road. Terrifying).
The campground itself seems like a great place for families. First of all, it's very quiet (unlike party campgrounds. Pfiefer Big Sir I'm looking at you). It's not too large, but it has enough space for kids to run around. It's set back just behind highway 1, across the hwy from a fantastic beach. Beach access is fairly easy too: it's just a short walk down a slightly declined dirt path and then a couple flights of stairs.
The campground has real flushing toilets but no showers. Not a dealbreaker. Also, the bathroom sinks near our site were not working. We encountered some raccoons (actually they encountered us) but that's typical in Big Sur.
I'll definitely be coming back to Plaskett Campground. Thank you for the great stay, kind hosts!!More
