“Run down, neglected, and over-priced.”

Reviewed Apr 22, 2019

Overall Rating

We chose this place for a one night stop to visit San Luis Obispo on 4/20. $36 for any dry camping site is an overcharge (the sites with hookups were $50). These are their “holiday rates”, which were in effect 4/14-28 because of Easter. Two weeks of inflated rates is a total rip off. And for what? The sites were small, very unlevel,... more

“Great park we always enjoy our stay here.”

Reviewed Dec 19, 2018

Overall Rating

The price reflects our camping in the primitive section (23.00) which is great during the winter due to the open area and views. They do have a per dog fee of 3.50 or an annual pass of 35.00 which did save us 14.00 as we have 2 dogs. They have a great off leash dog park on the property which is a short walk from your campsite and many ... more

“Great Natural Park Just Outside of Town”

Reviewed Jul 28, 2018

Overall Rating

El Chorro was a great little park close enough to enjoy the perks of a college town without worrying about a long drive back to camp at the end of the evening. After our stay in downtown Long Beach, this park was a great escape back to nature, with the park mostly being interwoven with existing trees and foliage. Although the sites are... more

“Really like it. Will stay there again. Each site nicely isolated from the next.”

Reviewed Jul 23, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed at El Chorro with my brother and sister-in-law. They had spot 8 and we were in 10 (the Romauldo loop). These were perfect for pairing up 2 reservations. We generally dry camp and I have to admit the hookups were convenient. The sites are nicely isolated from each other with tall hedges, making the experience private. ... more

“Quiet convenient county park.”

Reviewed Feb 09, 2018

Overall Rating

We like the location between SLO and the beaches at Morro Bay. The small size of the park helps make it a quiet place to stay. Unfortunately, it is a good enough park in a good enough location that getting a site isn't easy unless you plan in advance. The roadway is tight but I managed to get my trailer and truck through without any tr... more

Great location to San Luis Obispo which is a fun town with excellent shopping and dining. The grounds were very clean. This is a well maintained park. Bathrooms are also clean. I didn't use the showers but they looked nice. The roads are TIGHT. I had to move my car twice for neighbors to get in. Once so the 5th wheel in front of me ... more

“Small, pretty county park near SLO and Morrow Bay”

Reviewed Jan 21, 2017

We stayed here and site hopped a few times from Thanksgiving through Christmas this year. It's a pretty park about 5-10 minutes drive from downtown SLO, and 15 from Morro Bay with a Botanical garden, dog parks, picnic areas and hiking trails. Overall we really enjoyed our time here and would definitely stay again - there's a ton to exp... more

“Good location for exploring SLO and Morro Bay”

Reviewed Aug 30, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a great place mid-way between SLO and Morro Bay, feels rural yet close to town. SLO is a nice little college town with lots to do, brew pubs, dining, shopping, etc. Both Verizon and AT&T worked well. We stayed in the Chumash loop. The sites are a bit uneven. The most difficult part is that hookups on the inside (even-numbere... more

“Great location, spacious sites”

Reviewed Jul 16, 2016

Overall Rating

Half way between two of my favorite places, San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay, this is a fantastic spot to find yourself for a few days. This is one park where the full hook up sites are better than the dry sites. The dry sites have no trees, and are closer to Highway 1. The second two loops with the hook ups have better separated sites an... more

“Another Great County Facility”

Reviewed Jul 13, 2016

Overall Rating

Came in with no reservations and had our choice of a few full hookup sites. Cost was $40 but $3.50 per night per dog. There are trails and beautiful California scenery all around. Spots are small. Our 15ft. teardrop is snug in its spot, but there is a campfire/grill and picnic table available, extending the useable space for eac... more
