  • Just outside of San Luis Obispo, this park offers so much to do. The main reason I went was to go to the botanical gardens with plants from all over the world. The plants and the birds there were peac...  more »
  • The campsite is classically built in loop, it might be acceptable, especially because it is well located for San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay, Pismo... But the weekend camping is largely occupied by groups of 20 or 30 people; therefore bathrooms are largely inadequate (6 toilets; 6 pay showers for 300 people!), very fast sales and it is on very noisy until very late in the night. Most people have too many dogs due to the proximity of a dog park, adding to the cacophony and dirt. It is much more expensive than regular rates for state or national parks. The week or off-season it's probably nicer. The Park even has little interest

  • This is a good place to wander around and look for birds. Look for the red-breasted sapsuckers in the many pepper trees, check tall trees for red-tail, Coopers, and Red-shouldered hawks. Quail and wil...  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
