Dinosaur Caves Park in Pismo Beach, CA is a great place for families to enjoy the outdoors. The views of the Pacific Ocean also never get old for those of us that just want to take a stroll.

Beautiful views and lots of people walking their dogs. We always stay at Inn at the Cove, where every room has an ocean view. My Mom sleeps in and I go for long walks.

Stopped here on a rainy day to see the view - so pretty. Would be a nice spot for a simple wedding. Look around and see the tunnels in some of the rocks

There really isn't a whole lot to see here, but it is a pleasant place for a stroll and view of the ocean. Bring a lunch, there are picnic tables and a small play area for children. Worth an hour or two of your time.

It was a beautiful day a little over cast but the peacefulness was amazing. You can hear the children's laughter while playing on the swings. The park had clean bathrooms and a good size parking lot. A lot of trails to walk along. If you...More
