We got here on a Friday around 11am for a walk in site and the campground was packed. Luckily the campground hosts were very nice and had placed us in the overflow campsites. Which was just a small open area with another group already set up there. The next day they gave us a walk in campsite so we could have a campfire. However it was next to the restroom and the wind brought the smell to our site. The host did keep the toilets clean though. Lots of mosquitos around as well.
Dusty little place. It was the only one available since all of the surrounding spots were booked up.
Restrooms and showers close at 6p, so only potter potties are available after that.
Also the tenting spots are really close together.
$45 is way to expensive for what it is. Even for California.
This lake and the one up the road, San Antonio Lake , are very popular motor boating locations in north San Luis Obispo County. Camping in the summer months are very hot and crowded and not cheap. On the positive side, the lake is huge with narrow passages where you can get off the main lake and fish or just have fun. Jet skis, kayaks etc are permitted. There is a beach for kids near the marina area campground. The campground is part of the private Lake Nacimiento Resort located near the marina and extends along the shore toward the dam with various types of sites. Some sites have direct access to your temporarily moored boat. It gets a bit noisy in the evening as college students party after a long fun day on the lake. All services are available even a store. Three stars for noise and crowds and prices ( tents 35$ hookups 50$, plus pet fee, vehicle fee,etc.)
Great for young families. There is a pool, jumping pillow, playground, etc. RV spots are on flat, dusty parking areas and are easy to navigate. Very friendly staff. Internet is slow. The lake is 1/2 mile away, so very convenient. The park is loaded with really nice hiking trails. We are enjoying our weekend stay.
This was our first trip in our RV and I think it worked out well. The location of this place is perfect with lots to do in the area. 1 hour south of here was Solvang and Ostrich farm, 1 hourish north is Cambria and San Simeon. There is also Avila beach about 5 minutes away and pismo about 10 min. If you need anything, San Luis Obispo is 5 minutes away.. the facility was very nice, with lots of trees that give the "escape" feeling and the people that work here are FABULOUS!! The only downside was the noise. You are really close to the highway so you hear cars zoom past all night, not great for a light sleeper like me.
Nice RV park… It's pretty big and offers several options for staying from small cabins to full RV hook up sites. I personally was a little disappointed that place was packed as most places we have been staying had a 50% capacity restriction. Staff was friendly and helpful and definitely will return after pandemic is gone. Quiet time wasn't enforce which is nice for those wanting to party.
Our site had a gas grill and fire pit which was nice for some of the chilly nights we had.
I like Jalama, but it was super windy and it's always windy there. The site was more like pitching a tent in the parking lot. We were closest to a hill so it felt a little more secluded. It has a famous restaurant, for their burgers. Good breakfast too. The hiked were just-ok. The waves too big for our kids. Yes flushing toilets, I can't remember if there were showers. The only reason I give it 3 stars is because dispite how lame the actual campground is we had a super fun trip.
Eenjoyed 2 days here with many other campers. Staff helpful..friendly..restrms clean..quiet at night..fun things for kids..lake nearby also. Only 1 pitfall…we tent camped in space #63..next to a dirt road which looped around the campground. We got nailed with dirt dust every time someone drove by. Other than that..all was well…saw wild turkey and dear right next to our site. Inwould return but not at that camp space.
The managers are horrible and snobby. Lack of professionalism. Sorry to hear they are affiliated with K.O.A There is no customer service. Tourist aren't appreciated. This place is filled with transients roaming through the campgrounds and they don't care. They want you to deal with it. The place is crowded. Dumpsters are full and smelly. They freeway next door is super loud you can't sleep at night. Just keep driving it is not worth the headache.
We were running late and it was first come first serve so we were nervous getting but when we did they were hardly anyone there so we got a lot of space to ourself, the campground aren’t to smush together. If you can get one where there’s no one it’s amazing. It’s like 45 min away from morrow bay, downtown slo so you can grab some stuff back and downtown slo is just awesome every cool. Bring a lot of Deet spray cause that place was crazy in bugs and day and all night .they had good trails and a lot of nice green forest when we went around June. Would come back again !
