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.

Ken welcomed us when pulling in to the campsite. He was extremely kind and gave us suggestions on where to go for fireworks! The campsite was perfect, very clean and open. Would recommend staying here!

Site 2 - SLO Country Camp
SLO Country Camp was awesome! We and our good friends booked both spots and had the place to ourselves. The sites were well laid out and the outdoor kitchen/dining area was so convenient. We all like to cook, so the counter area for our Coleman stove and propane BBQ made it easy, and the big sink was great. A clean Porta potty and outdoor shower were other features we appreciated. Based on Ken's advice when he welcomed us, we took a nice long walk to get views of the beautiful valley their land is situated in, so glad we did! The views from camp are great also. Distant hills, gorgeous flower and fruit trees all added to our camp experience. We would definitely make a return visit.

Site 1 - SLO Country Camp
Dont know why hip camp says I'm giving a low rating. I clicked that I would recommend it to a friend. Most here seem to think that spot 2 is the better spot. I stayed in #1. I think ultimately, I had the better spot because; the out house didn't face me, the sink was farther away but no one had to walk through my campsite to get to it, the shower was also at #2 but I prefer not to have strangers showering next to my camp. it's all communal and #1 is farther away from all amenities., but that's fine with me. You can also park on the "grass" area and put your vehicle between you and the house if it feels a bit like you're being watched. I have to admit, I was taken aback at first, but having a fire pit right there with my wood was perfect. Ken greeted me at the beginning and said goodbye when they left before us. It was a good beginner test drive for me. Camping alone and wanting to cross the country but haven't done so in decades, I'm out of practice.

Best experience and location!
Ken and Judi’s land was truly the perfect situation for people that love to camp and still have access to town! We were less than 15 minutes from Avila Beach and 3 miles from the nearest grocery store! Ken was so accommodating and friendly, and the campsites were just truly so clean and beautiful aesthetically! Without a doubt, I will be coming back to stay with them in the near future and sharing with all friends!
