Tent

Fernwood Campground & Resort is happy to share our forest, Big Sur river and beautiful meadow view campground with you. These campsites are located near the Big Sur River bordering Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park and offers the best camping experience in Big Sur. This gives you direct access to Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park and all the conveniences of Fernwood Resort. Our campground has two bath houses with hot showers for your convenience. In addition, there is a dish washing area and a laundry facility. Many of the campsites have water and electricity provided. All campsites come with a picnic table and a fire ring.


When you arrive at the Check-in kiosk in the campground, look for the rare albino redwood tree right next to it. Buy it where you burn it.


Protect the trees you love from tree killing bugs. Do nature a favor. Don't move firewood long distances — it can potentially transport invasive species. Instead, buy it where you'll burn it, buy certified heat-treated firewood. The forests, and your great-great-grandkids, will thank you.


Maximum 6 people and 2 vehicles per campsite.
