The rate, normally $35, was discounted since the water was shut off to the bathrooms due to our ongoing drought. Most of the sites are level and there were plenty that would accommodate our 36' motorhome with 4 slides. We had a lovely shaded site that still allowed us to get satellite tv. There is a walking path under the highway to the very windy beach. It's a great location, just south of Hearst Castle and the elephant seal rookery, and just north of Cambria, with Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo further to the south. We camped at Hearst San Simeon State Park, San Simeon Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground offers fairly large sites, which are flat. We never saw a ranger, even at check-in. All the showers and restrooms were locked, and there were large groups of portable toilets in many places. We did not seem to have WiFi. There is a trail that goes to the beach, but we did not use it. If I needed to be near Cambria, I would return. We camped at Hearst San Simeon State Park, San Simeon Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

San Simeon State Park is a large campground with three separate areas, two are more developed with paved sites closer to the highway and the ranger kiosk and one is up on the hill with better views and more primitive (also cheaper). We had reservations for one of the primitive sites, but we opted to move down to the more developed campground because it was less dusty and more landscaped. Wifi/cell service is an issue here. We had no Verizon service, but the park did have wifi service, unfortunately we couldn't get a good connection at our site and had to walk a short way to connect to wifi. Still, we liked the campground and loved the area and would recommend it as a good base for exploring Cambira/San Simeon/Hearst Castle. We camped at Hearst San Simeon State Park, San Simeon Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed the trees and the access to a wonderful beach, however the nights we stayed had noisy campers with motorcycles so we didn't sleep well. Our last night was wonderfully quiet and peaceful as the other campers had left! There are no amenities here, so come prepared to be self sufficient. The park itself is very pretty and kept clean and neat. We camped at Hearst San Simeon State Park, San Simeon Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

First up, this is called the San Simeon State Park on all the signposts not Hearst San Simeon State Park. 2nd there are 2 campgrounds within this park. The San Simeon Creek campground which has showers at $35 per night and is located close to the entry and the Washburn campground which is up on the hill and has vault toilets for $20 per night. We looked around San Simeon Creek campground and although parklike and shaded it was very close to the main road and the noise was noticeable. Sites at the Washburn campground are spacious, flat, gravel with picnic tables and fire pits. The fire pits are high sided steel and don't draw well. We loved this campground and stayed an extra night. We camped at Hearst San Simeon State Park, San Simeon Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice clean quiet park with numerous scenic trails of varying degrees. Trail also leads to beach access. There's a dump station, but no sewer hook up. There's water spigots throughout campsites and restrooms throughout. Appears to be in good shape and does not smell. I would go here again. We camped at Hearst San Simeon State Park, San Simeon Creek Campground in a Motorhome.
