"One night Pecan Loop near Highway "

active staractive staractive staractive starinactive star
We booked Pecan 220 - 30 amp full hookup - online 24 hours ahead, on our way to BBNP. We arrived after 5pm and site slip was on a clipboard at the entrance. I reserved the last spot in pecan loop since it was conveniently behind the office and a pull through for ease. We did not have to level blacktop site except a few inches on front. But… this...

It is insanely quiet very far from the interstate with gorgeous views of the...

Friendly campground hosts, well-spaced and private sites. Not a lot to do there but camp. Bring extra tires and shocks for your RV because the entrance road is terrible, repeat terrible.

"Really tight"

active staractive staractive starinactive starinactive star
This is a sardine park. Not only on either side, but also front and back. Felt like we were staying in the city. Really close to beach and downtown Pismo Beach. Only 20 min to SLO. Great location, but park is like a parking lot. Your neighbors sewer drain will be next to your picnic table. Dog runs are laughably small and stinky. Pool and...
