“Expensive even for dry camping, but it doesn't get much closer to the ocean than this without parking on sand! ”

Overall Rating

They've apparently raised their rates since the last review - dry camping is now a crazy $50/night, with full-hookups at $65. We were willing to fork it over since there's no other free camping sites around, and opted for boondocking so we could at least be literally next to the water, whereas the sites with hookups are across the street.

We were parallel parked along the road, near the entrance to the power plant, so traffic was heavy with workers coming and going seemingly all hours of the day and night, but really bad around 6:30-7 am and 4-4:30 pm. Next time, I would park further back toward the piers to avoid some of the noise.

Great cell service, water on-site to purchase for $0.25 (not sure if it's potable or what quantity you receive - the sign didn't say) and a little store and restaurant at the marina within walking distance, plus restrooms and showers there as well. Lots of dumpsters for trash.

The beach is completely dog friendly with some limitations on hours supposedly, but we never saw anyone enforcing it. A great place to launch kayaks or paddleboards. Nearby Avila Beach was adorable and easy biking distance, and Pismo Beach (about 10 minutes' drive) had some great options for food and drink, including lots of gluten free and veggie fare and a great little beer pub called The Boardroom.

We'd come back, but $50 is a bit steep for no services and a nice view, but with lots of traffic.
