RV Yes

If you have a pull behind or 5th wheel trailer, this campsite is for you. The RV sites make this a breeze to back into and set up. This is the best ocean camping on the coast. Walk a mile on the beach and you are at the old fisherman’s wharf. If you walk another 1/2 mile, you’ll be at the tourist restaurants. The huge morro bay rock never gets old to look at. Make sure you bring your binoculars to see the many different types of sea life and birds. The sea lions and otters are always a pleasure to see. They make for hours of entertainment.

Nice spot particularly if you get a beachfront site

Great spot right near Morro bay on a nice beach. A bit of a parking lot but if you get a good beach front spot you won’t care as you sit and look at the ocean. Back row you will be looking at other campers.

Beach is nice and we found tons of sand dollars here which was fun. Residential neighborhood is pretty quiet ocean is louder than road it seems. A brewery pretty close but need to drive really with the highway. Town is very close and nice options for food etc.

We often stay here while in transit but would be nice for a few nights.

No dump but morro bay state park is near by and you can use that.

Great beach camping

When it comes to location, this campground is fantastic. It is right by the beach, downtown Pismo but far enough away that you aren't in the mix of everything. It has a restaurant, store, laundry, pool, basketball/tennis courts and beach access. My only complaint (not worth removing a star) is the camp sites are extremely close together. I mean 12-20ft from trailer wall (my trailer) to trailer wall (my neighbor's trailer). It is very crammed.

Family's Annual Winter Trip

Amazing place to come with the family. It's full on camping but you just don't have to bring a tent because a gorgeous bell tent is set up for you with two huge mattresses and a Buddy Heater to keep you warm at night.  The place is gorgeous and completely secluded.  When the sun goes down the sounds of cicadas and the rustling of the trees in the breeze is something you'll think of very often.  

We've stayed in Sites #3, #4, & #5 and they are all great.  Sites #1 & #2 are even more secluded but we've always come with a friend who's taken a site next to ours so we always book more than one site and want to be closer…

The two 'hosts' and owners of the site take meticulous care of this valley between two mountains you're in the middle of and it's the perfect place to get out and unplug.

There is very limited cell reception but you are about 15 minutes away from San Luis Obispo so you can always drive into town or take a quick hike up their trail.  

You will be driving up a 2 mile unpaved road to get to this secluded site but a prius could make the drive.  It's short enough to be 'fun' and long enough that you're 'done' once you get to the site.  :)

Awesome Location, Tight Spots

Love being at the coast and close to the water. This campground is right next to the local golf course known as the “poor man’s Pebble Beach” which sits adjacent to Morro Bay. However, it is more of a trailer and RV park based on the setup of the main campground. There is a more isolated tent-only area, but it is significantly smaller than the main area. While we enjoyed being in this serene coastal town, the campground was busier than we would like and we probably will visit other nearby campgrounds that are more spread out.

Awesome spot!

Super clean and great location, but docked a star because of the price. After fees when booking, it comes out to about $42.00 a night. 

Showers and bathrooms are spread out nicely. We tent camped and the noise wasnt bad at all. Though there was some mystery animal howling/screeching through out the night haha. Super close to the water. Kayak rentals an restaurant down by the dock and a great place to load kayaks into the water! Will definitely be back. Just make sure you book in advance! Fills up fast.

Cool Area, limited spots

This is a nice area and it's free so you can't beat that. Unfortunately there aren't a ton of spots to camp. I've been twice now and both times the actual camp sites were full by the time I got there (2-3pm Friday). Leaving us to grab one of the few remaining dispersed spots. If you can get on it super early you may get lucky. The road in was fine for 4x4 but there was one stretch with some ruts that could prove hairy if you aren't good at driving on dirt.

Awesome campground with amazing views

Awesome free campground! Vault toilets and running water. Dog that rolls through in the mornings makes for beautiful scenery. Would come back!

Great Park with good sites

We really enjoyed our 4 nite stay at Pismo Sands, our site was huge, large grassy area that we shared with our friends who was in the site next to us. All the amenities, it was clean, quiet and very friendly. I highly recommend!!!
