Give in to the many temptations of the Central Coast for a camping trips to San Luis Obispo. With a mild mediterranean climate that rarely drops below freezing, camping in San Luis Obispo is pleasant nearly any time of year. Set your tent down along the coast at Pismo State Beach, where you can surf and fish on sandy beaches and catch sight of beautiful and rare wildlife like migrating monarch butterflies, bald eagles, and shorebirds. Explore the jagged coastline, tide pools, and stunning wildflower blooms at Montana De Oro State Park, where you can camp at Islay Creek Campground. Morro Bay State Park or Morro Strand State Beach are ideal for coastal adventuring and to check out the area’s iconic landmark—Morro Rock. Inland, explore the hills and forests at Cerro Alto Campground. Hikers will want to check out Bishop Peak, which is the tallest of a string of volcanic peaks that stretch toward the Pacific known as the Nine Sisters. Thirsty after your outdoor pursuits? Head into the Edna Valley to taste the region’s local wines or stop by the iconic Madonna Hotel for some craft beer sampling at the California Festival of Beers, held each May.

Spanish settlers came to San Luis Obispo in 1769, entering through what is now Pismo Beach.
A super comfy, colorful place to camp :)
The tire swing was a quick walk up the hill from Pete's backyard, with a truly awesome view of the sunset.
The front of the property.
Right when you walk in, there's a spot to your left up the driveway to stay (one of two places to camp!).
Just off the driveway, you can find one of  two places to pitch your tent.
