Looking for recommendations around San Luis Obispo, CA

We are heading into town and have looked at the county parks ($30) and some of the private parks, but are trying to do it on the cheap.

Polling the experienced!

A rate of $30/night in this area is about as low as it is going to get, so you better take that. They also frown on overnighting in public places in this area as well. Peruse www.rvparkreviews for the options.

Ronald casper wilderness park in San Juan Capistrano $20 (electric only). Sites are far enough apart and bunch of trees in between to make it private. We had a nice stay there last weekend

When we have visited SLO (4 times) we have stayed at El Chorro Regional Park. $30 may not be 'cheap', but it sure is convenient to SLO. Found that if you arrive Mon. afternoon thru Thur. mid-day you'll have better selection of sites.

That is a nice park, but San Juan Capistrano is a long way from SLO.

There is a KOA Campground near Avila Beach not far From San Luis Obispo (SLO). El Chorro Campground on Hwy 1 near SLO. There is also camping spaces west of Avila Beach, no hook ups. Lots of camping in the Pismo Beach area.

Port of San Luis. Can't beat the view, but, dry camping is now $45/night.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

One of our favorite spots on the CA coast. We did the hookup thingy. The views are spectacular also.
I think "California coast" and "on the cheap" are mutually exclusive.

There is dry camping on the beach in Pismo State Beach. I believe it is $10 per night and does have pit toilets. You camp right on the sand and may risk getting stuck. I camped there in a 29 foot trailer and no 4 wheel drive. I have seen 40 foot fifth wheels and large motorhomes back there. I don't know if I would risk getting stuck with my 40 footer now. But, you won't find anything cheaper on the coast in that area.
