I've camped all over the country and this park is one of the worst! There was nothing nice about it at all except if you were standing on the beach looking out at the ocean! I went with someone who had never camped so we left because I didn't want him to have a bad experience!

A few easy hikes with pretty scenary, go and see the Lime Kilns and the waterfall. Limited parking spots so make sure that you get in early.

I love this little park. Love the waterfall hike, the little beach, the very very nice and helpful rangers. I have camped here too, if you are tent camping, the spots are really beautiful. If you have a camper, you have to park in this little parking lot area, but it is still worth it.

We stopped here to show the grandchildren how lime was processed at the end of the 1800's. After a short hike, we saw the kilns. They stand as huge monuments in the redwood forest to a process that isn't needed today. Then we hiked to the waterfall which involved crossing a stream several times. The adventure was trying to select the best log or stone to reach the other side of the stream. It was a great way to experience the varied climate of Big Sur.
