Open Year Round


Known as the "Best-kept Secret on the Central Coast of California." This rustic, rural campground is carved into the side of a hill on 69 acres with mainly dirt roads and sites. We offer RV and tent sites, plus log cabins, yurts and Deluxe Cabins with bathrooms and kitchens. Kids love the giant Jumping Pillow. Adults enjoy the peace and quiet of dark starry nights. Expect dust, rugged terrain and steep steps to the restrooms. Great base-camp for day trips to Hearst Castle, Morro Bay, Pismo Dunes, Ravine Water Park, local hot springs and 100's of wineries. Although the nearby non-body-contact Santa Margarita Lake is low; it still offers great fishing, birding, hiking, biking and boating. Our friendly staff can give more suggestions to help plan your getaway.
