24 Parks near Cayucos, California
Jan 2017 - $38.00
Great location! Easy walking distance to the beach and town. Small spots (but with a little grass area) and lots of mobile homes and permanent residents that are kind of junky looking. Laundry room was is good working condition. No cable but we got a few channels with our antenna. - Adventure in Moving

This park is under new ownership. Prices have gone way up. Not all higher-priced ocean view spots actually HAVE an ocean view (space 35.) 3 of the 5 dryers were broken. Management was heard yelling obscenities at a neighbor around 8pm (yes their TV was loud, but couldn't you knock on their door?) Free wifi, but only if you're parked close to the office. No cable. Crazy reservation system with rules that keep changing.
Great location across from the beach. Most spaces unlevel on gravel. - mac2school

We've stayed here many times over the years and is one of the best locations to stay if you want to just park and chill for the week or a weekend. Most spots are just ok with many permanent residents in this park. The only really nice spots are the ones with a view which are probably 8 in all. The spots towards the top of the park can be fairly loud given that the freeway is nearby. Although it's a treat to get one with a view, the main reason we enjoy this park is because it is just across the street from the beach and a short walk to downtown Cayucos. It's nice and quiet here and we try to stay here as much as possible, although it's quite difficult now a days to get a spot. - Clark Griswold2

First time staying here, the park has in the last two years added full hook-ups to some spaces. The spaces are very close together and the cost has gone up significantly with the upgrades. - J R-Pod

About a year ago the state added many new full hook up concrete RV sites. The campground flier indicates that the full hook up sites are limited to 40' or less in length. I do think that you could fit a 40'+ rig though, as there is 8-10' of space in back of the rig after the concrete pad stops. They are back in and are wide enough for the rig and a tow vehicle. The back portion of the parking area is dirt and is where the picnic table sits. The sites have 50 amp, and the water pressure is remarkable, especially for a beach location (my on board regulator was easily pegged at 60 psi). The full hook up sites are $50 a night. There are many dry camp spots available as well at $35 a night that have a 24' max length. The beach is a short walk down a path through some areas that are being regrown with native plants. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed on any of the beach areas in this State Park, so Fido needs to stay in the campground. Our Verizon air card worked really well here, but no park WiFi is available. One really surprising point being that this is a state park is the absence of any handicapped facilities. The campsites themselves are easily negotiable with flat smooth surfaces and small rolled curbs, but that is about it. There are two bathroom facilities, one at each end of the park, but neither is handicapped accessible. In spite of a crude asphalt ramp, the doors into restrooms, and on the stalls themselves are not ADA compliant. There are also no shower facilities here. The campground flier states that fact, but indicates that by showing your receipt for this campground, you can drive 6 miles south to Morro Bay state park and use the showers there. Not very convenient. But if you don't need showers, or Handicapped facilities, I can highly recommend this campground. - SargeW

We were staying at a very nice private park nearby, drove by to check out this beachfront primitive camping we had used decades before. FHU's as of 4/1/2015 I'm told. Immediately we checked ReserveAmerica for availability. Weekends, even in February, even Super Bowl weekend, were pretty tight, but we managed to get a full week (which we subsequently extended). This is the first Cal State Campground we have used since we moved to multi-slide rigs pulling a dinghy 15 years ago. We want FHU's (50 amp) with satellite TV clearance with campground etiquette rules enforced. About time California started putting some of my tax money into its parks! This place is gorgeous with back-in sites providing a panoramic view of the Pacific out of the front windshield of your motorhome. It is not sheltered from the heavy winds that do occur in the area. Perfect? Until the group showed up Sunday afternoon in the tent area blasting music as we left for dinner. Unbeknownst to me at the time was that the campground hosts & park rangers were on them immediately. Kudos to the state for this awesome upgrade & the park personnel for enforcing the identified rules. - biosensai

I've stayed here a number of times and have submitted good reviews about this park in the past. All of the services, except for the very weak internet, worked well and their facilities are kept somewhat clean. Access to the park off the freeway is easy and the sites, all back in, are big rig friendly with room for slides.
Unfortunately, this time I had the misfortune of having someone move in next to me who's dog continuously left little presents in my site. After complaining twice to the management and the problem not being resolved in any way I left for a more suitable park, just down the same road towards the beach.
This used to be a nice place to stay in, unfortunately the managements perspective of what their customers are entitled to seems to have drastically changed, very much for the worse. - waterboyv9n

Really a good park to stay at in Morro Bay. It is away from the wind and fog at the beach, great WiFi, a few good HD TV channels from the roof antenna to augment the cable. Great little dog run, good management, friendly neighbors, and quiet nights. There is an off leash dog park in town and an off leash beach area north of the city. What more could one ask for. There must have been a change in management since some of the lower ratings a few years ago. We would certainly stay here again. Love to hear the coyotes at night, too! - Snoet

Asphalt interior roads with good level gravel sites. Sites are very narrow with a car barely fitting next to the rig. No shade. Good place for sightseeing, but would not want to stay longer than a week or two. Good, strong Wi-Fi. Folks are nice, laundry large and clean. Would stay again. - runamuka

We try to get out in our trailer at least once a month. We've done this for two years now and I have to say this park - though clean is my least favorite. The spaces in the south park are tight, perpendicular to the road and narrow. It is downwind from the city's treatment plant - making it unbearable to sit outside. On the plus side - it is an easy walk to the beach and about a 15-minute walk to downtown Morro Bay. - G_Barbosa

Super clean park (love their stance on cigarette butts!) split into two sections: larger rigs are on the north side of Atascadero Road, smaller to the south. (Office on the north.) Very clean laundry on the south side. Fantastic proximity to Morro Rock and onward to the Embarcadero. Very good info sheet -- one of the best I've seen. We'll be back! - InHabitants
Oct 2016 - $65.00
Stayed in site 12, 55+ ft long and 40+ feet wide. Paved road with very level gravel sites. Nothing fancy but plenty of room. "Very" close to the beach, 2 minute walk. If you have a big rig this is the place to stay. The one around the corner is good for small trailers and small MH as they pack you in like sardines there. Bike/hiking paths close by. EZ on/off CA one.
If you come from the north on US 101 take CA 46 over as it's a truck route. CA 41 has some very tight curves and narrow in places. - 45parkcity

A very nice privately owned RV park in an area where there are not many choices. The streets in the park are paved but the sites are not. Unfortunately we were here during a very heavy winter storm and actually went out and bought some plastic mats to put on the ground outside to help keep mud out of the trailer. Hook-ups were convenient & they collect the garbage. Our site was quite narrow and took some maneuvering for our slideouts. Some sites are quite a bit larger and there are pull-throughs available. The location is right across from a dog-friendly beach with easy access, which is wonderful to walk on. Since we were here 6 nights, we disconnected our truck but even parked close to the 5th wheel it stuck out into the street. - storms

We camp for vacations in a 25 foot Class C motorhome with bikes, no toad, no pets, no kids.
We rated this park an "8". For this park to be a "10" the sites would have to be far apart, with trees/plants in between the sites, and the sites themselves would have to be roomier and perfectly level.
We enjoyed this RV Park and will definitely come back when we are traveling up or down the central California coast. This is our 3rd one-night stay in the past 3 months. The proximity to the beach is great, and it's a very nice beach - very few people, lots of nice sand, shells. Close to a nice little community, bike path from campground to town, interesting sight seeing nearby.
We paid $49.95, including tax.
Location right on the beach is great
Location is also close to Hearst Castle, Piedras Blancas Lighthouse, and the Morro Bay Maritime Museum
Relatively quiet location (have to listen real hard to hear highway noise)
Has good, reliable cable TV
Has good, reliable wifi
Beach across the street from RV Park
Can take kayak and/or bike tours in the area
Picnic table & fire ring
Sites pretty level
Bathrooms & showers clean
Sites very close together, My slide out is probably only 6 inches from neighbors' truck
No shade, but we're at the beach so have not needed it so far....
Bathrooms clean but older. - Katie and Steve

Nice park, closest park to the beach. The restrooms and laundry facilities are a little dated. Level sites with a table and fire ring. We will definitely be back. - Rich622
Aug 2015 - $30.00
Very clean, well maintained, centrally located in town. This is more of an adult park and what we were looking for. We will return for sure. This is a small park with construction ongoing, however managed well and not a real problem. - xchief

This park is in a fantastic location. The front four RV spots on Main Street are noisier, but not bad. The back spots are quiet. The park is clean, well maintained, attracts a respectable clientele, and has friendly and supportive owners. The walk to the Embarcadero is less than five minutes and walk to downtown is less than two. WiFi and cable are excellent. Don't worry much about the lack of 50 amp because Morro Bay is rarely very warm. The laundry room is immaculate and is fairly priced. - Maxine and Cinder
Jun 2013 - $38.00
This tight little park was all we could get into on graduation/father's day weekend. We were allotted a tiny, unlevel, gravel site. Most of the sites were occupied by seasonal RVs. The plus side is location about 2 blocks from the marina, which has all atmosphere, shopping, walking, and dining anyone could want right on Morro Bay. Showers and laundry are spotless. - Yeager

Great friendly owners. Site was fine. Pool was clean - kids loved it. On-site laundry was fantastic as we'd just come from a few days in Big Sur. - DrK
Dec 2015 - $55.00
Pretty good place to stay. It's near to, but not within walking distance, of the ocean, state park and town. Management is friendly and helpful. The sites are extremely close together, frequently requiring somebody else's vehicle to be moved in order to wedge in a newcomer. There's approximately 20 vehicles parked outside on the road because they won't fit near the owner's rig. This place is mostly full time stays, probably 80 of the 110 slots will never move again. Rest rooms are clean and each site is groomed before your arrival. Laundry works well, but expensive ($2.25/load.) Overall monthly price wasn't bad. Pool/Spa stays open all year. - BuffaloGR
May 2015 - $38.00
Only park in town with a heated pool and spa - important to us after long hikes and mtn bike rides in Montana de Oro State park. We used the spa every night (closes at 8pm). Quiet park, some road noise from Hwy 1. Lots of long term, mostly older residents. We had no problem getting our 27' trailer in our spot, although it did slope down quite a bit at the rear. As a bonus, there are free DVD checkouts available. We will definitely stay here again. - coffmake

We stayed in this campground several years ago in a smaller rv and were eager to return. This time the rig was bigger and the sites seemed smaller. Overall the campground is showing serious neglect with overgrown bushes crowding the campsites. I have many new scratches down the sides of the rig just from trying to pull into my site. I can't imagine there isn't a CCC crew that wouldn't love to spend a few days there. - ChuckD

Being a campground, and not a park. It's a great campground, you golf, mountain bike, hike, kayaking, cafe,all in the park. Bathrooms are your SP standard, rangers are all lot of help with suggestion in town. I will be back. - NXTSTOP

Morro Bay is a great little town with beautiful beaches and lots to do in the area. This state park is older, as most are, but decently kept up and located in a great area. Just across the street is the marina and a wetlands trail. The town of Morro Bay is about a mile away. We stayed in the front section of the park, which is three rows of pull-throughs with electric and water hookups, which are long but kind of narrow. There is no view to speak of, but the vegetation provides a decent amount of privacy. The roads are easy to navigate and the sites are pretty level. Overall a great place to stay in the area. - MrSunshine

We stayed one night just passing through. Although the campsites are adjacent to Route 101, there was not a lot of traffic noise. The folks at the lodge were very friendly. The WiFi did not work. There were full hookups to include 50 amps. We would stay here again. - Melodycthomas
Aug 2013 - $25.00
Easy to get to from the freeway. Some freeway noise during the day. Good Wi-FI. Very clean. Nice lodge and friendly folks. Lots of wineries in the area. Easy drive to Morro Bay. Will return. - Sidewinder
Jan 2013 - $25.00
Full hook ups ! Easy. To get into. Level gravel sites. Wi-Fi was fast & cable TV had like 50 channels. We needed a place to spend the night for a dinner date. Perfect. Use the 2nd driveway to get in.. - Tredguy

Good county park when staying close to San Luis Obispo or Cal Poly. We have a 40' motorhome, which was able to navigate the loop roads. HOWEVER, be careful if approaching the access road North bound on highway 1! There is a stop light at this intersection, and the turn is sharp into the park. When cars are waiting on the access road for a green light, it is IMPOSSIBLE to make the right turn into the park with a big rig. Your only hope is to stop in the right lane of the highway, and wait for the the traffic to clear. South bound access is fine, as there is a left turn lane.
There are several big rig sites, primarily in the first (dry camping) and 3rd loops. However, they fill up fast, so reservations well in advance are advised. Sites are not perfectly level, and backing in is tight in many cases. Hosts are evident in each loop. Park shows signs of budget cuts. Maintenance is poor and campground cleanliness is not the best. Park is very quiet at night - we did not hear highway traffic at all. This is a pleasant park to stay at, and we would come back. - Scott Hicks

Great facility if you have a rig that will fit. This is largely a park made for yesteryear's smaller, non-slide rigs. Campground (not an RV park) looked to be 3 loops. The first lacked hook-ups. It appeared to be newer due to the lack of mature trees. We needed a site that we could fit our 37' Class A with 3 slides, our CR-V, and rooftop satellite TV clearance. We.found one vacant site that would absolutely have worked. One occupied site that would have. One unoccupied site that might have. Note that we were in the car scouting sites mid-day on a Saturday, intending to come in the following Monday. The perfect vacant site was booked most days for the upcoming two week period. That was disappointing, but the deal killer was the additional charge for a dinghy. $35 for a FHU (30 amp) site in a beautiful campground is pretty good. $15 each day for our toad if we unhook it . . . You must be kidding. For $9 more we booked a deluxe, FHU site (70' x 45') available for our entire planned visit, at a private park in Morro Bay. El Chorro is a beautiful facility, but it didn't work for us. - biosensai

We stayed at Romauldo 9 in August for 11 days and Romauldo 13 last May for 7 days. These sites accommodate the largest rigs, but many of the other sites could accommodate our 37' trailer. The sites were about 2 to 3 inches out of level. Pads were asphalt with ragged edges, which made deployment of our wheelchair lift more difficult, but doable. The restroom was about 100 yards away. RV sites are on the Western side of the park. The dog park, picnic areas, botanical area and trails are on the Eastern side. The two sides are connected by a bridge over dairy creek. Difficult to negotiate with a power wheelchair, but we did it. I hiked the trail up to Eagle Rock several times and enjoyed the view out toward Morro Rock. The trail splits near the top with the left trail going through a beautiful oak forest. The camp host for our area was very helpful. There are a several over-the-air TV stations available. Many are Spanish speaking. My wife said she likes this park better than Morro Bay State Park. The climate is warmer near San Luis Obispo than Morro Bay near the beach, but flying insects were a small problem. We will definitely visit this park again. - jwhite
