An average of 315 days of sunshine a year, mild temperatures year-round and stunning natural scenery combine to make SLO CAL a camper’s paradise.
Whether you pitch a tent or park an RV, immerse yourself in nature at whatever location you prefer. Want to wake up to the sound of the surf? Make your way down PCH to a beachside campground, and experience the unbeatable thrill of camping at the beach. There’s no shortage of beachside camping options, from San Simeon and Morro Bay to Pismo Beach and Oceano.
Is a lakeside setting more your speed? Check out campgrounds at Santa Margarita Lake, a nature lover’s retreat with thousands of acres of designated open space. Just east of Arroyo Grande is Lopez Lake, where some campsites overlook the lake while others are nestled among picturesque oaks. At Lopez Lake, you don’t even need to worry about bringing along a tent—book one of the lake’s cabins for a unique rustic getaway.
Eager to hit the trails at sunrise? Consider a campground close to the base of a trail. Lake and mountain trails as well as trails that lead to the beach are all in the playbook.
