SLO Country Camp was once a part of the Serpa Ranch, one of the early ranches of the Central Coast. It’s remained a beautiful rural pocket in the Edna Valley area of San Luis Obispo. It’s quiet and peaceful, enjoy your morning coffee listening to all the birds waking up. There’s a private creek not far away that draws deer and wildlife. Just saw 3 deer run through out property 2 days ago. Owls, red tail hawks, eagles, squirrels and jack rabbits we see frequently. And you can listen to the coyotes howling at night. We’re surrounded by rolling coastal hills, vineyards, horses, cattle and also land apportioned to the Land Conservancy. Walk down our road and then left up to the top of the hill for a panoramic view of the entire area with the city San Luis Obispo at a distance. Our two sites are flat on decomposed granite pads. Both have excellent views and easy access to our common areas: wash/kitchen prep, and cold-water outdoor shower. Site 1 is best for trailers but Site 2 is adequate. Firewood is available for purchase at camp for those wanting to use the fire pit, or you can bring your own. The San Luis Obispo, Central Coast has so much to see and do! Hiking trails abound, my favorites are Bob Jones trail to walk or bike to Avila Beach, Johnson Ranch and Irish Hills for hiking hills, the Ridge trail for a view over Shell and Avila beaches, and the Harmony Trail to walk grassy cliffs by the ocean. Montano de Oro is only 15 minutes away with rocky ocean cliff trails that lead down to the coastline. We are 5 minutes from the beginning of the Edna Valley winery trail with 30 wineries or more I’ve lost count. Tasting and relaxing in great atmospheres. My favorites are Biddle Ranch, Talley, Mailene, Chamisal, Bailyanna... but there are so many more. We’re 10 minutes from downtown San Luis Obispo, 10–12 minutes to Avila or Pismo beaches. Morro Bay is 25 minutes. And we’re just 5 minutes off the 101 for easy access to traveling. The Central Coast has almost everything for fun, adventure and food. Surfing, biking, hiking, ocean kayaking, paddle boarding, golf, wine and beer culture, ranch lands, shopping and restaurants and we’re close to it all.

Prior to arrival Ken and Judi asked when I plan on coming, and when I got there, they were ready to show me around their beautiful camp site. I had a great stay, it was very quiet with a beautiful view of the hillside at sunset and cool to see planes from the airport fly nearby.

Awesome views and location
Very thoughtful setup with nice touches every direction you look! Ken and Judi were so welcoming when we arrived and then respected our privacy thereafter. We were especially appreciative of the dish washing station and clean honey pot during our stay.

Site 2 - SLO Country Camp
There’s a lot of love put into this Hipcamp. The shade and kitchen area and little tables and twinkly lights are very pretty. It’s a very comfortable place to camp close to all of the attractions around San Luis Obispo. The fire pit is great and it’s nice that there are so many chairs provided. The porta potty was relatively clean and communication Very nice. I would think it would be a great place to come with small kids because it’s very easy and convenient. that said if you are looking for a very private and remote camping experience, this is not it. There are ranches within eyeline, the other campsite is right next-door even even if there is a fair amount of room allocated to each (but I suppose no different than most state campgrounds ) and an airport very close by which didn’t really bother us but if you are sensitive to noise, it might. All in all a great stay.

Ken is a sweet, nice and friendly host! This camp is close to SLO and well organized. You should def walk around and check out the horses, cows ( there are two horses you can see closely right over the fence down the street ) if time allows. Overall it’s a great camp site! Thank you

We took our van to Ken and Judi's land and it was a great experience! Easy to find, quiet and it's a great set up. I would definitely recommend it, it was nice to feel like we were remote but in reality were 10 min away from downtown.
