Well Spaced Campsites Nice Location
Great location if visiting Hearst castle, coast or elephant seals. Campground was clean and spread out. Don’t waste money on the showers. They are one of the worst we tried unless you’re into the cold plunge. That’s the reason for the 4 star along with the $10 dump fee. Most employees not friendly. No hookups but private bathrooms were clean with sinks outside for cleaning. Good stopover if you’re just looking for the basics.

Clean site. Pretty level. Upper spots are not very level. We stayed in spot 40. Showers were not working well near 40. There were other showers. Host was professional. Rangers were professional. Campground had a calm vibe. Don’t expect good cell service. Watch out for poison oak!

Expensive For What You Get
We arrived late with no reservation but being disabled there were two spots still. However, the wifi was spotty, no water or electric hook-ups. $.25 for 3 minutes of hot water in the showers and no lights in there or in the toilets.

Nice RV camp ground. Like upper dry sites since we are self contained. Nice hiking paths to beach. Water and dump stations on main road near host. Some sites can be muddy during rainy season so big rigs should be selective. Little town of Cambria nice to visit and walk around. Been here several times and always enjoy it.

Stayed Overnight. Quiet And Peaceful
My wife and I enjoyed a restful night after visiting Hearst castle and the elephant seals. It had been raining heavily the week before and the ground was saturated. But overall, good value. We stayed at the unserviced sites for $20 per night, where the serviced sites were $35. There was WiFi in the main campground provided by the park service.

Great Camp Ground Close To Beach
This a nice camp ground just on the east side of Hwy. There is a path under bridge that takes you to beach. Trees are low so watch the AC. Paved park with paved camping spot. Mostly for small RV. Only a hand full would fit a bigger RV in the lower loop. Bigger rigs better off in upper loop although the winds in upper get bad. No hook up but water is available. Close to Hearst Castle and Elephant seals. I would have gave this camp ground a 5 star BUT the ticks are overwhelming. We had to keep our 2 dogs on pavement only and still found ticks on them every day. BEAUTIFUL PARK
We stayed here in a 38ft 5th wheel.

Large campground with no hookups or WiFi. There's a path that leads to the beach without needing to cross the highway.

Beware Of The TICKS!!
Both dogs had multiple ticks on them. We bathed them and still a week later we find one in our home.

Great site indeed but DO NOT CAMP ANYWHERE NEAR THE BATHROOMS! The smell drifts horribly and will ruin your stay.
The camp host is a dick, so if you buy wood from him punch him in the face for us on the way out.

Camped midweek. Lots of large spaces. Water off because of drought. No showers, portable toilets. $25/night.

Nice & quiet
We stayed here midweek for one night in early August. We had no reservations but there was plenty of room for our 35ft RV (I think that is the size limit) No hookups, but we were self-contained. The sites were level, large, and we had shade.

Huge Campground, Big Sites
We camped in the basic sites, lots of room but not a lot of shade. $25 for vault toilets and no water is expensive but it was the only campsite on HWY 1 that wasn't fully booked.
