Camping near Cayucos gives you the best of both worlds—California wine country and the rugged Central Coast. From state beaches to RV parks and deluxe glamper cottages, this trendy ocean-front city is your ticket to West Coast camping with a taste of adventure. The soul of Cayucos is Morro Bay. Locals and travelers alike come here for surfing, kayaking, and fishing with striking views of Morro Rock. (Looming 581 feet, you can't miss it). Ready to make camp? Stake your claim at Morro Bay State Park. The campground is perched on a saltwater lagoon teeming with shorebirds. Here, you find both tent and RV camping sites with full hookups—gawking at Morro Rock from your campsite is a huge plus.

Pismo Beach is another rave-worthy option in San Luis Obispo County. From its two year-round campgrounds, you have easy access to surfing, hiking, and fishing at the local pier. Even bring your four-legged buddy along—dogs are welcome on this beach! Want to explore the inland landscapes? Relax while wine tasting in Paso Robles, or stay at the Cerro Alto Campground.
