Near San Luis Obispo

Nice camp site. Near San Luis Obispo & Pismo Beach. When we stayed here it was for the Renaissance Faire (which has moved to San Luis Obispo proper). There were tons of loud people. We definitely need to return to give this an honest review. It can't be as bad as I'm remembering it.

Great location, horrible facility

The location can hardly be beat. It's easy walking distance (~1 mile) to the water, and right off of Hwy 1. We love to go on the sand dunes and take disc sleds down them. The facility, however is really old and needs many upgrades. I've been coming to this location since the 70's (when it was called Sand & Surf). Other than losing the game room, there haven't been a lot of changes. The bathrooms are exactly the same as they were in the 70's and the sites really could use at least partial paving. You get out of the sand, but can't get out of the dirt. So sad! We've visited in July and November and have had the same problem in both instances.

Fun, quiet find!

This campground is terrific. It can be crowded on the weekends, but the week days are wonderful. The park has a creek that runs from the camp ground to the public beach down below. You can take your floating stuff up to the camp area and literally float down stream in 45 minutes or so. There is a place where we usually stop to swim about 2/3 down the slope which is deep and perfect. We haven't noticed too many wild animals, but the nights are quiet (usually) and it does get chilly during the night. Doesn't matter how hot it may be during the day, night is always chilly. Great place…going in July & again in August!
