Creekside Camping and Mineral Baths

10 sites 路 Tents124 acres 路 Cambria, CA
We can accommodate tent campers or car campers. The price is $30/per person. Kids under 12 are free. Each campsite fits 4-6 people. Most campsites are accessible by car and all campsites are accessible by foot. We do not have a traditional check in procedure. Campsites are first come first serve. Expect a "self-check in process." You choose your own campsite so plan to arrive early and look for the yellow tent symbols. On holiday weekends and summer weekends we tend to get busy and campsites fill up. This leads to some campsites on the property in view of other campsites. We do have private campsites available but its first come first basis. BYO water. We have sulfur spring water. Great for your skin, not good to drink! There's a couple outhouses on the property. One in the main camp zone, one at the far north end of the lower Redwood campsite. You can also bring a shovel and take a walk if you're in the more remote campsites. We have a dumpster outside the gate for your garbage. IMPORTANT INFO Please don't mind our farm junk as you enter Gate 1. We are slowly working on clean up and relocation of materials from the entry road and away from view. Before you arrive, have knowledge of poison oak because it is a native plant. The main photos in the listing are taken from Hipcamp Scouts back in 2018 and they are featuring our Original campsite. This is located past the mineral baths. It's the furthest one to reach, and accessible by foot. I will update photos to depict all the campsites, but please share your photos with us on Instagram and tag @charanspringsfarm to help future campers get a view of what the sites look like with a tent set up! SULFUR MINERAL BATHS Include in your experience the use of our sulfur mineral baths. It's $10 per person. The mineral baths are 2 funky vintage clawfoot tubs that are pictured in the actual listing. The photos show an accurate description of the Mineral Baths. They are not located in the main camp zone. Please call ahead to book your time slot and get directions to the mineral baths. You can pay for this option in the Extra's tab. PLEASE DO NOT BOOK IF: you are looking for "Glamping," (Glamour Camping). It's primitive camping on a private property with bonuses like the garden, rustic baths, and beautiful nature. This property has been a working farm for decades, which has struggled with hard times. If farm yards/junk piles make you uncomfortable or give you a creepy feeling, don't book because our boneyard is adjacent to the entry road and it can't be ignored. Thank you for reading this whole description and we hope you have a good experience.

SLO Country Camp

2 sites 路 RVs, Tents10 acres 路 San Luis Obispo, CA
SLO Country Camp was once a part of the Serpa Ranch, one of the early ranches of the Central Coast. It鈥檚 remained a beautiful rural pocket in the Edna Valley area of San Luis Obispo. It鈥檚 quiet and peaceful, enjoy your morning coffee listening to all the birds waking up. There鈥檚 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鈥檙e 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鈥檝e lost count. Tasting and relaxing in great atmospheres. My favorites are Biddle Ranch, Talley, Mailene, Chamisal, Bailyanna... but there are so many more. We鈥檙e 10 minutes from downtown San Luis Obispo, 10鈥12 minutes to Avila or Pismo beaches. Morro Bay is 25 minutes. And we鈥檙e 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鈥檙e close to it all.

The best camping near Cayucos State Beach guide

Overview

About

Stretching along the shore of the resort town of Cayucos, in California's San Luis Obispo County, this protected stretch of coast attracts plenty of sun-lovers throughout the year, and is particularly popular with surfers. Features include picnic tables, outdoor showers, public restrooms, and a pier that's illuminated every evening for those who want to take advantage of night fishing opportunities. Camping is not allowed here, but there are plenty of private campgrounds, Hipcamps, and state parks in the area that allow camping, including Morro Bay State Park nearby.

When to go

The temperatures in Cayucos never get too hot or too cold, with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s or 50s most of the year, and if you see surfers during your visit, it's likely they will be clad in wetsuits. If you're hoping to see whales, come in March or April, when they tend to swim closer to shore.

Know before you go

  • There are plenty of spots to get food and basic supplies within a few blocks' walk of the beach, in the town of Cayucos.
  • The California State Parks Annual Day Use Pass is not accepted at the park.
  • You are welcome to fish on the pier without obtaining a fishing license.
  • Lifeguards are only available at the height of summer.
  • You can make reservations to hold weddings and other special events at Cayucos State Beach up to one year in advance by contacting San Luis Obispo County Parks, who manage the park and its facilities.
