Pismo beach

We are at Pismo Coast village, Pismo Beach Calif. First time towing our crv. A great place to stay, right off the beach.

Check out the other campgrounds in the area I prefer most of them and if you are an Elk check out the Oceana Elks that is right down the road. Don't forget the Splash Cafe or across the street at Brads for good clam chowder.

We stay there a couple years ago over Christmas and New Years. What a great location! Our dog love chasing the tennis ball every day on the beach. It was a short walk to the shops and restaurants. And the butterfly colony was within walking distance. It may be a bit pricey for some, but worth it with the amenities and all that it has to offer.

Least expensive full service campground on the coast. Have been going for many years at least 4-5 times/year.

We love going off-season and staying at the state park next door... site #17 is the best and will easily take a 40' motorhome (there are other spaces that will as well but 17's the best in the park IMHO

Great place to stay except over Spring Break. Neighbors did karaoke from sundown until 11pm every night. Nice people, but noisy. After 3 nights of this nonsense, we moved to the other side of the park, not knowing our new neighbors to be were having a birthday party celebration. Even louder, even longer. Next morning, our class a was blocked in by one of the many guests vehicles. I calmly knocked on the trailer door. No answer other than a dog barking. Contacted park security. They couldn't roust them either. I did manage to get the motorhome out with security being an extra set of eyes. Did I mention this was midweek? Security told me it was an absolute madhouse the week before also.

biosensai, are you referring the Pismo Coast Village or the state park next door.

We stayed in the state park next door this weekend and it was our best experience to date (we've had our Sunstar 9 months). The sites are very far apart, the place is quiet and park like, and it is very close (just over the dune) to the beach and walking distance into town. It is really a beautiful park this time of year. The only catch is that it is dry camping only in the North Beach sites, though they do have a well maintained dump station. We prefer dry camping, so this is great for us.

Ate at Brad's today and the fish and chips were great. The line as Splash's wrapped around the side of the building, but they do have great chowder...
Weather was in the 70's....and it is still winter until next week! Love living in CA!

Macnut . . . definitely Pismo coast village. Similar reports posted at another website that reviews campgrounds.

Thanks for the reply. We just walked through Pismo Coast Village and I have to say, it is packed even in March. The spaces are too close for my tastes, but the park seems very well maintained and it has a nice pool and activity area. I'm glad everyone is packed in there instead of the state park next door. I would much rather dry camp and have a beautiful view than be packed into an RV park with full hookups. :-)

I truly miss dry camping. When first married, my wife and I used to frequent the very campground you are now staying in. Enjoyed our brand new 1978 Toyota long bed with a camper shell. We're now very happily retired full-timers with a 37' Class A Winnebago. So much parasitic draw on the batteries, any dry camping would have to be for a very, very short time. Might be the satellite TV, though!

We were just at Pismo Coast Village this last week. We have stayed there before and really like it. Some sites are close together, more so than the State park. There is no comparison if you don't mind dry camping at the SP.

We were with a club of 15 rigs and they put us all together. Their WiFi is great. We didn't need cable as we got several HD stations over the air. We were at a site at the end of a row next to the HiWay. It really didn't bother us though. We walked to town and had cinnamon rolls.
