Arrived September 5th 2014. Called ahead of time to make sure there was no problems with two motorcycles being trailered behind our motorhome. They said it was fine, but we might have to pay an extra fee for the third vehicle. When we arrived they didn't want to let us in because counting the trailer that the motorcycles were on,... More

The campground was fairly well maintained, but the location was less than desirable. It's a long block walk to the beach that is full of noisy ATV, etc. The campground is surrounded by homes and businesses, so if you are looking for peace, quiet and to get away...this is not the place.

I stayed here as part of a G Adventures touring group for 1 night and enjoyed my stay here. The campsite is very clean with a chilled out feel to it. The campsite is right next to the beach where you can chill and watch the sunset. Would highly recommend to couples and families.

This site is close to the beach and all that has to offer. You have to drive into Pismo, but it's close. The site was well maintained and the other campers were very nice and well behaved. Major bummer was the luke warm shower. That might keep me from staying there again.

Many people get this campground confused with the Oceano Dunes SVRA, where the camping is right on the beach near the dunes. This campground is just off the beach and has hot showers, working bathrooms, fire pits and picnic tables. We have went several times to this campground and it is always clean and safe. The Ranger makes regular trips... More

On a road trip in an RV from the beauty of Carmel, through Big Sur to Pismo and were tempted to carry on but too tired to drive. This was the worst RV site of the whole trip and the least helpful of all the State Beaches we have been to. It is basically a car park off the road... More

I do enjpy coming here in the winter time during the week, but on a summer weekend...forget it! campsites were close together, the good thing was it is a walk to the beach,... More

Clean enough bathrooms and showers. Showers had warm water and there were plenty of them, but you need quarters for them. We were in camp sight 71. It was small and there was no shade. But it was overcast and not too hot anyway, plus it was in a good spot because we were not next to anyone else. We... More

I have never been to a campground where the rangers/staff were so incredibly rude. The lady we talked to at the front while checking in was very rude then we felt like we were being watched the entire time we were there. The rangers harassed us the second it hit 10pm while we were sitting around the campfire talking. They... More
