  • A hidden gem for Cal Poly parents who either own an RV or who are willing to rent one and camp when visiting their kids. It's just a couple miles up Hwy 1 from the Highland entrance to California Stat...  more »
  • We are always looking for off leash dog parks as we take our road trips. This is a nice park on the road north of town (Hwy 1). The facilities are nice and there's lots of room. No grass though; only ...  more »

  • The primitive camping area is like a parking lot where you are all on top of each other. When I came here it was just for the night but there were very clearly some "resident campers". Some were nice but one group was up tweaking all night and putting off terrible vibes and carrying on with little tweaker fights that woke me up through the night. Hopefully this isn't a regular thing.
  • This is a true diamond in the rough...affordable price; an awe-inspiring botanical garden under construction; nice and accommodating help; well maintained and obviously growing facilities; an eclectic group of campers from college forum groups and Ag teachers to professional musicians... AND the sixth star...drum roll...cheap warm showers with generous time limits...I will be back....with a group.
  • This is an awesome and well maintained park. I've personally only accessed the baseball fields for softball games, but the rest of the park is well maintained from what I've briefly seen while walking around it. Camping is offered here, and would make a nice place to stop for a day while traveling and exploring the area. It's close to SLO and Morro Bay, which is nice if you're traveling south. However, if you're traveling north along Highway 1, it may be best to continue up to Big Sur, and camping there.
  • Very nice park in the happiest place in america.
  • Favorite camping spot, quiet, lots to do
