Nice stopover on the 101 with Electricity

We stayed there one night while traveling. It was ok. Campsites are very close together. The beach is just a short walk over the dunes but we were not allowed to take pups off leash on the sand. There was an abundance of Rangers patrolling the beach, we were stopped to give a warning even with pups…

Very clean campground!

This was our first run with our new RV and we couldn’t have been more happy with this location. It’s basically 5-10 min from anything you need to explore from downtown pismo, Avila beach etc.

-Walking distance to beach with trails from the campsite -crazy clean bathrooms with huge ADA size…

Love that you can park right at the beach

This place is rad. You can stay here until 11pm if you don't have a camp reservation. You can also rent ATV to ride at the dunes which is super fun

About This Campground

Located on the scenic California Coast, approximately 80 miles northwest of Santa Barbara, and 180 miles northwest of Los Angeles, Pismo Beach camping is a seaside recreation destination for beach goers, wine drinkers, and outdoor enthusiasts. Sun lovers will find miles of white, sandy shoreline for soaking up the California rays, tossing frisbees, riding the waves, or just taking a leisurely sunset stroll.

Digging for Pismo Clams is a popular—and tasty—surfside activity. Daily clamming permits are available at several local businesses. Grape connoisseurs will find an attractive selection of waterfront venues pairing fresh cuisine with artisanal vino from historic vineyards in Edna Valley, Arroyo Grande, and the Santa Rita Hills. For more outdoor fun, there’s ATV and horseback riding at Oceano Dunes, bicycling along the beachfront, and golfing at several premier local courses. In winter, don’t miss the Monarch Butterfly Grove, just south of town, where thousands of butterflies take shelter during their annual migration.

For taking advantage of all the relaxation and recreation that Pismo Beach Campground has to offer, the North Beach Campground is located right at the edge of town, and within walking distance of the waterfront. The campground offers more than 100 drive-in tent and RV campsites; some sites are ADA accessible. Sites are mostly open and grassy and are equipped with picnic tables and fire rings with grills. RV hookups are not available at this location; max vehicle/trailer length is 36 feet. The campground features flush restrooms, showers, and an outdoor amphitheater that hosts junior ranger and campfire programs. Trails in the campground lead to the beach, explore the nearby Carpenter Creek, and lead to the Monarch Butterfly Grove. Surf fishing is permitted on the beach, and freshwater fishing is permitted in nearby Oceano Lagoon; valid fishing license required for both. Dogs are permitted in the campground, but must remain leashed, and must be confined to a tent or vehicle overnight. Camping is available year-round; sites are $35/night; reservations recommended.
