    This place is a great place for camping by the beach. Water is mellow. Dunes to ride your ATVs in. Although the dunes aren't as big as Glamis, it still is a great place to have fun! The Showers are walking distance and grocery stores...More

    Make your reservation and camp in a wonderful environment. Beautiful sunsets. Clean. Monarch Butterflies from October to February. A spectacular sight! You won't regret it. Life is short. Live it to the fullest.

    The North Beach Campground is actually very nice. It accommodates tents to large RV's and is very well spread out, right on the beach and right next to Pismo Coast Village RV Resort. Not to be confused with the campground on Pier Avenue in Oceano...More

    While close to the train tracks, the trains must be running quieter as they were barely audible. A nice walking trail to the soft sand beach and clean showers and bathrooms. Check in time can get pretty congested so plan to wait.

    Wooleys has an outdoor patio that allows dogs, and is on the beach next to the pier. It's walking distance from the campground either along the beach, or through town.

    We made the walk from our campsite (which was one of the closer sites to the pier), with 5 adults, 4 kids, and a dog, and it took about 20 minutes. It was an easy walk!
