Rustic Spot with room and camping
Pros: clean safe space. Toilet access, great neighborhood. Great art walking neighborhood Friendly host. Cons: there's wifi but don't count it reaching your tent site basically only when you're by the restroom. You are right under a street light so it doesn't get dark. And lastly con, I did not appreciate he let his dogs walk onto of our tent while we were setting up....I only stayed one night so I can only review on that. Pete's place is safe and it is clean. Very cool place amazing art you should see. Super cool metal works made by the man himself so I stronger recommend you check out the yard. He's super nice and the space was great .

Magical Sculpture Garden Camping
Pete is an excellent host. The property is magical. There are lovely little gardens with eclectic sculptures throughout the property. The location is great too. I really enjoyed my stay there and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.

Pete was warm and welcoming (as were his two adorable pups!). The site was clean, comfortable, and within walking distance to downtown San Luis Obispo. I would happily stay there again!

Pete is a swell host and is there to answer any of your questions, and the property is centrally located to local wineries, morro bay, and pismo beach. We’ll gladly return to Rikiville, thanks!

This spot was very close to town and all amenities. Pete was welcoming and his house and space are an artist's delight. Great spot to pitch our tent and rest for the night with our hound. We loved our stay. Please note that this is a residential neighborhood and Pete does have little dogs.

Totally unique camping experience
Funky place in SLO. House and yard decorated with eclectic art.... Bathtub shrines, salvage art, random stuffed animals hanging out in trees. You discover something new every time you walk to your site. We had the site all the way up at the top, in the back of the lot. Cool view of the valley... Would recommend that site. Pete was a friendly, matter of fact host. We typically opt for camping in the wild, but special circumstances had my son and I needing a place to stay for a couple nights in SLO. I'd do it again in a similar situation...

Considerably more expensive than other hip camp sites that offer more facilities and space. Pete’s hosting was fine. We felt safe and it was an adequate base for spending a day at Avila which had a great beach and atmosphere.

I think I was a terrible guest for Pete because I didnt know what he meant bij ESTA (I'm from Holland), so he waited for me for about an hour. Once we cleared that he was the nicest guy with a very relaxed and accepting vibe. His house is very interesting; everywhere you look you see somthing funny and/or creatieve. I felt welcome and Pete explained the things I could do in the area. Thanks Pete!

More like hostel vibes
Great place! The description wasn't totally clear about there being roommates and that the bathroom door did not lock. The fire pits should also be explained more clearly. Overall a great fun place to stay for a night. Make sure to stay at the back!

Art, weather, and new people.
The area was awesome. So much art work. Pete was friendly and very welcoming. The weather was amazing and there was tons of exploring to do. My daughter and I plan to come back again soon.

Our experience at Pete's provided us with a safe place to land, a quiet night's rest, and in the morning, we were delighted to learn we'd slept at the foot of a living, breathing work of art. Pete's generosity of spirit will continue to inspire us.

Peter was a very welcoming and friendly host. He and his yard were a bit eccentric but so long as you don’t mind funky yard decor there shouldn’t be an issue. I would absolutely stay here again!

Nice spot and very friendly people
we enjoyed our stay at the front campsite. Pete received us very well, they were having a barbecue, we were able to talk and get to know the other people who were at the camp better. We really enjoyed the experience!

Eh it was ok
Overall worked for what we needed. My girlfriend and I were going to a wedding so we decided to go for the room option just to have a spot to get dressed up. Totally worked for that. But we opted to not sleep in the room just because the spot was a cobbled together bunk bed in a room in a house were a few other people live (I think!?). Which is fine but just wasn’t the expectation from the pictures. There was no separate door to the room so we had to go through the house to get to the room. There are a few couches there and people 1. Napped in there during the day and 2. Slept in over night. And 3. Starting playing the radio at 7:30 am. So it was not the easiest getting in and out of the room without feeling like you were disturbing folks and it felt like just living in someone’s home rather than having your own spot. Amy expectation from the pictures was that we would get a separate little room as there are a few through out the property. We chose not to sleep in the room. I have a camper shell and Bed set up in my truck (which we slept in the night before). There was a reasonable level spot we parked in. Overall did the trick. But, the annoying part was we were triple parked in the following morning and the host was no where to be found. We had to communicate with both groups of folks in the morning to move their cars. Lastly one of the cars had people sleeping in it and it was truly on a grade. Glad we weren’t parked there. Probably would not do it again.

Great place to park overnight. Pete was very welcoming and had great suggestions for things to do. We would’ve totally missed out on the big farmer’s market if it wasn’t for him.

After seeing the campsite, we left & stayed elsewhere. We’re giving a low rating because the description on the profile did not match the actual site. It wasn’t comfortable or inviting of a space.

If you like camping next to a street and somebody's front yard with a bunch of metal junk everywhere then this spot is for you

The coolest camping experience ever! Loved the vibes at Pete's place and had one of the most magnificent views of SLO just in the backyard. Super walker friendly to get to downtown or the train station. 10/10 would visit again.

Wow this is a true California gem! Pete has created an artistic temple and the view from the stunning back garden is spectacular! We felt right at home, and the location is perfect, even though it was close to town, we camped and it is super quiet!

Such a cool, quirky & chilled out place to stay! If you’ve booked to camp but don’t fancy putting your tent up, if there is space, you can upgrade to a bedroom for your stay. Very relaxed & friendly atmosphere. I’d recommend this place!

Pete is magnanimous host. Highly recommend his yard for the views and the funky artifacts around his place. Nice price, too for such a great location! We will be back!
