This park has a few RV hook-ups, but access is limited to shorter rigs. We had a small cycle trailer that made us 32 feet total, so only the dry camp area was available. Most of the acreage has been converted to park cabins. They charged extra for pool use (not included in overnight fees) and for each dog per day though there were no services like walk areas for dogs. The restaurant would have been a great attraction, but was not operating at all this year. There are no other restaurants in the vicinity. We will skip this hot spring camp next year. We camped at Avila Hot Springs Resort in a Motorhome.

I stayed one night and then had to leave. The noise was horrible from Hwy 101. The dirt from the camp site got inside everywhere. The site was so close to the other trailers that it took over 1/2 hour to back in. The smell of sulphur was unbearable and had to keep the windows closed. The overall camp ground was run down, dirty,dusty. The sewer was opposite the trailer, so I had to run the hose under the trailer. Even the cabins looked run down. The staff was friendly. I ended up going to the county and stayed there where it was great and at least quiet and did not smell. I did not even try the pool for the sulphur smell was too over bearing. I will never go here again. I will go to Morro Bay before coming back. We camped at Avila Hot Springs Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I visited this park in the early 1990's; at that time it was a traditional RV park with hot spring facilities. They have installed 30 "cabins" (small mobile homes) which are rented out. Many are occupied by long term or permanent residents. Depending on the time of year there may be 4 to 15 "cabins" available for short term rentals. There are eight RV sites with 25 foot length limit and two at 30 feet. We parked our 30 foot fiver on the long site (N). It took moderate side to side leveling, and a lot of front to rear leveling. There is an olympic size heated (not hot) pool and a hot pool. Facilities are shabby but in working order. Massage and a water aerobics class are available. Entrance to the pools is $10 per person per day. The weekly RV rate is $250 (about $36 per day) which includes free pool access, so if two persons use the pools daily, the cost of the RV site (minus $20 pool fee savings) is about $16 per day. There is an Italian restaurant on site which has excellent and reasonably priced food, same menu for lunch and for dinner, closed Sundays. Dining room seats about 50 and is staffed by a cook and 3 assistants who take orders, serve food, and bus dishes, so waits can be very long on busy days. Lots of traffic noise including hordes of motorcycles on weekends, but traffic is light during the night. Few barking dogs, few children, no mowers or leaf blowers: hooray! We would stay here again. We camped at Avila Hot Springs Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has real hot springs on site and admission to the hot springs is included in the price. The Resort is right off Hwy US 101 and the traffic noise is substantial. They say the max RV length is 25 ft but they allowed us to stay in one site knowing our RV was just shy of 30 ft. Showers and restrooms are aged but OK.
