Tucked into a 40-acre redwood canyon, Ventana Campground is for campers who want a touch of lux. Sleep beneath the stars while having access to bath houses, showers ($2 for every 5 minutes), and a general store on site that sells firewood and ice.

Two pets are allowed at each campsite, but doggos aren't allowed on most trails in Big Sur.

John Pfeiffer sold 700 acres of his family's land to CA in 1933. The state named Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, and more, after him.
Esselen and Rumsien people were the first inhabitants in Big Sur about 8,000 years ago.
The Spanish used to call the area "el país grande del sur," the big country of the south. Thanks to English settlers, it became Big Sur in 1915.
