Amazing

Lake is beautiful. Some lots are big if you stay away from hookups. Only con is there is no body contact in the lake. Only fishing and boating

I'd give it a 5 if it wasn't for the freeway

This was an excellent urban campground.  It's very compact and depending on your site you may need to coordinate pulling in and out with neighbor sites.  Very clean, very nice and helpful staff.  It's right in the city - near to the beach and zoo (biking distance for us).  Only flaw is it's right…

Dolphins at camp!

This spot was great! We got one row back from the edge of the cliff but luckily no one was camping in it when we were there. We got to see a pod of dolphins swimming by as we ate breakfast. Great views of the beach and nice bathrooms for a campground.

Too tight spaces, no security

The spaces between RVs are too tight. It feels you almost look into the others van. No security and no management on site. Everyone can just come in,no gates. Nothing to do there. Nothing happened but I didn't like it. Its ok to stay overnight and move on.

Simple, spacious, security

Simple park, with lots of green to run, playground, few mins drive to the beach($10 entry fee), space between RVs and a table. I like it. Swimming pool clean, showers fantastic. Clean toilets. Missing a hairdryer though.

Windy but beautiful spot

We live about two hours away and couldn’t believe we hadn’t heard about this spot before. We came on a monday and the crowds had just left so we had most of the site to ourselves. The hosts were generous and offered to see us wood but there was plenty of wood from the previous campers (plus we had…

Awesome camp near beach

Neat and clean campsite. They have pay showers which are decent. Less than 1/2 mile walk to the beach. Bike or hiking trails.

Great Location, lots of space

This campground is in a very cool location. You can walk straight out to the beach. There’s a monarch Grove right next to you. And it’s about a 15-20 minute walk to Pismo beach Downtown and the Pier where you’ll find all of the main attractions in the area.

Most of the campsites have little to no…

Cozy and close to beach

It was pretty busy and bustling when we stayed, but definitely a cozy spot. Great hikes nearby and the beach is just a short walk away! We saw lots of cute animals during our stay. The campsite pass also gets you free parking at pretty much any beach along the PCH.

Good Clean Campsite

We started here in July of 2020. Campsite is well maintained, shop is well stocked and showers and restrooms modern and clean. Good facilities and helpful staff. Close to local wineries and good hiking. Went with older family and the dog. Definitely worth a return visit

Great views from the Lookout!

We loved this campground destination! Out of all of our trips so far (12) this is our favorite! Let’s start with the drive - it’s a long windy road to get up to the campground. One lane, two way street but it’s very doable! You pass the nondescript Neverland Ranch too. Beautiful drive to the…

Beautiful remote equestrian campground

If you are looking for a campground with horseback riding opportunities, this is the campground for you. Remote, mountain location. Almost no cell coverage, no restaurants or services nearby.

Dirty

Camp hosts are friendly and they enforce the rules which I like because it was quiet at night and nobody was taking over my space. However, it is not a campground it is a parking lot where you camp. Bathrooms are dirty, hot shower doesn't always work, ground was full of some gophers who were…
