| Old and dated

Pros 1. Close to Bob Jones trail 2. Near Avila hot springs where you can purchase day use passes 3. Easy on and off the freeway 4. Avila beach 3 miles down the road Cons 1. It's basically a parking lot and you're stacked up on one another. 2. The water smells like rotten eggs 3. It's OLD and dated 4. It's dirty - there is dirt everywhere from the gravel sites. Plus the showers and bathrooms weren't clean. 5. Freeway noise all day and all night. 6. Dogs... Everyone's dogs bark at all hours 7. People don't adhere to the quiet hours 8. You are parked so close to each other that you can hear people talking and moving around in their rigs 9. No open fires. 10. The staff were kind of snotty. The young woman checking us into our site had an attitude. 11. The office / store closes at 5 pm so if you need ice, snacks, etc you have to leave the campground. Would we stay again... Probably not. It's just too old, too dirty and too dated. Plus they pack you in like sardines into the park. Once someone is next to you with a larger rig, you lose all daylight.

| Great location, tight spaces, recent upgrades

This is a very well located RV park, close to Avila Beach, Pismo Beach, San Luis Obispo & Morro Bay...and all the sights and activities in those areas. That said the sites within the park are small and make for tight access. Full hookups are included (electrical, water, sewer & cable TV), but this is also the highest prices RV park in the area at $70 per night. boost sites are gravel with a picnic table. We last stayed here in 2012, they have been in the process of upgrades since then...and are now almost complete. While the facilities are older, they are well maintained and even the store/office has been enlarged and upgraded

53$ a night for a full hook up. Close to the beach and only 10 minutes from all the fun at Pismo beach. Highway 101 just at the door step.

Stayed in the off season, so there was plenty of room. Didnt have to reserve. Payed $65 a night for full hookups (water, power, sewer). All staff was super friendly. My kids loved the playground and pool. Nice clean shower/restrooms. Good pet area. Close to Avila Beach and Morro Bay. And walking trail to the beach great for running. Overall, loved this place and would definitely stay again!

| Tight spots, great amenities close to beach

Spots are tight. We had a ba k to back spot, our site was a out 21ft wide and 32ft deep. Hard to maneuver in with a big trailer. Ours is a 27ft, 32ft overall. Great pool and spa though they need to add about 20 chaise lounge chairs. Awesome playset for the kids, short Creek trailer/dog walk area and nicely landscaped along it. Spaces are crushed gravel. Ours was completely level so that was nice. 5 minutes from Avila Beach, Pismo Beach and others. Great farm store nearby as well. If you can get over the tight spots it's a great destination. Onsite store has everything organic and good local wine too. No campfires due to San Luis Obispo County law in that area.

| Great KOA!

Friendly staff, clean facilities, and a great pool, hot tub, and play park for the kids. Spaces are typical and close together like most KOAs but this place is about location. Across the street from Avila Beach Barn where you can go feed farm animals for free, and get pie, ice cream, fresh produce, or a steak sandwich. Next to hot springs which is great if you get a cold coast day. And a pretty bike trail into the little beach town of Avila with restaurants, shops, and beach fun. There is also a trolley pick up across the street to go into Pismo. Lots to do and a great stay!

Staff very friendly and KOA few miles from the beaches. Space are tight and we had difficulties to fall asleep due to the traffic noise from the 101.
