Pine Knolls

We were headed to Kirk creek for New Years and hwy 1 was closed, so we found here as a alternative. Pretty much had the place to ourselves probably because it poured for 3 days prior and was cold. Bathrooms were clean, campsites are really close together, we overland and need a wide campsite for…

Great park

Beautiful park. We thoroughly enjoyed our drive-in tent site, the scenery, and the abundant bird life.

Noisy Neighbors in Pine Knoll

We went here with another family and were in spots 23 & 36. It was a perfect area for the kids to play. The campsite was very crowded and quite a few of the neighbors were very loud even after the quiet hrs. The park staff never came to ask them to quiet down at all. The bathrooms were not…

Fun place!

Great place to rv camp. Pretty cheap considering your camping right by the water. Can get windy at times and weekends/ holidays get super crowded. The dunes are fun if you have a motor vehicle/ATV. Downfall there’s no dump station but you can call a company to empty your tanks( for a cost)

Lake San Antonio

I love this lake it has something for everyone. Like swimming, boating, camping, going on a picnic, and fishing in some areas. I would consider this one of the best campsites I’ve been to

This is one of the few beaches you can drive on in CA. Come prepared with 4WD. Ride ATVs on the dunes and camp on the beach. Lots of trash and always windy.

Lake camping

One of my favorite places to camp! So many spots right on the lake and lots of areas to explore. Always enjoy boating, wakeboarding & tubing. Love that you always have your own big area.

A little bit of everything ..

The first time I went to Lake San Antonio was with a birdwatching group looking for bald eagles. It was another hot summer and the water level of the lake was low. That didn’t deter the eagles as they flew across the lake to try to dive down and catch a fish. San Antonio Lake is 17 miles long and…

Camping by Lake Nacimiento

This lake and the one up the road, San Antonio Lake , are very popular motor boating locations in north San Luis Obispo County. Camping in the summer months are very hot and crowded and not cheap. On the positive side, the lake is huge with narrow passages where you can get off the main lake and…

What a spectacular place!

This was our very first trip in our new TT.  It was a little chilly at night, but the crashing of the surf made it magical.  Fiercely big raccoons :)

The camp host was great, and the sites are not huge, but decently spaced.
