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

Stayed for 2 nights and had a very nice stay. Campsites are close together, but as long as you have respectful people around your stay will be great. We had a very nice stay because their were a lot of young kids all around us who played well with our kids. The location is a nice walk to the beach.... More

This campground is wonderful for a place to get away. I have been going to this campground every year with my family since I was a small child. The RV and tent camping is completely separated by trees and a lagoon. The noisy generators don't bother the tent campers and the smoky fires don't bother the RV campers. There are... More

We have been coming to Oceano Camprground for over 10 years and love the campground. Most campsites have sufficent space between them for privacy unless you get one that circles around the restroom/showers. Some sites having tents can be back to back. Kyaking in the lagoon is fun but you have to lock your food due to the racoons. We... More
