Stayed at the Riverside Campground recently for two days with friends. The campground itself is really beautiful with a pretty river and redwood trees all around but the campsite situation is poor.
The sites are far too close to one another and the no-noise policy is ridiculously strict... don't even think of speaking (library voices included) after 10PM or you will be harassed by a scary man in a bathrobe. We forgot a blanket in the car and were harassed for opening a car door as well. As if this wasn't enough, tent camping for two days cost us over $100... no joke! You would be better off in one of the state parks (which we would have stayed in had they not been closed due to fires) or the nearby Fernwood which are both half the price and twice the fun.
I really wanted to like Riverside, too. Big Sur is far too beautiful a place to spend in a crammed campground with stuffy neighbors. There are lots of better options.
