Camp at Pismo State Beach


Added by The Outbound Collective

Dig for clams, watch for birds, and jump into the waves. Pismo Beach and Oceano Campground have lots to offer – make sure to stop by in winter for the monarch butterfly migration.

Hiking along nature trails, swimming, and surf fishing are all possible here, including wheelchair accessible fishing at Ocean Lagoon.

Facilities consist of fire rings, restrooms, and showers. Restaurants are not far from the campground, as well.

Make your reservation here.
