8 Parks near Lompoc, California
Jan 2012 - $20.00
We stayed here 4 nights. We had a view of the river, nice trees. The park has a lake and lots of picnic area. We used the picnic table next to our RV, however. It was a great location for visiting our family in Lompoc and the side trips we made to Hearst Castle, Solvang and the beaches. The mission is very close by which includes miles of hiking trails. We would stay here again. - szysnshine

This was a great park to stay in. There was no TV or Wi-Fi, but the park made up for it. Camp host was very friendly. Sites were well spaced. We will stay here again. - cbor

Sites have side by side hookups so only one of a pair are convenient for use. Although there is a park host, never saw them. You pick a site then go back and register placing payment in an envelope and into the "iron ranger." The basic FHU site is $20 per night. BUT, if you have a toad it is an additional $10 per night and dogs are $1 per night for each. Showers are 3 minutes for $.25 and really needed a good cleaning. We were here on business so this place was better than the high dollar park in Buellton. We would stay here again if coming to Lompoc. - fivertug

14 mile drive can be a challenge, but once you reach the crest. Oh my gosh. Is this real! Beach is nice, good waves, good wind for kite surfing. Beach did have some tar,but hard, and really not much. Store has everything you forgot, food I did not try. Restroom are what you can expect at a heavy day use county park. Wi Fi is spotty, no cell coverage. I will be back. - NXTSTOP

What a beautiful place to stay. We had spot 110, on the top row, and had enough room for our 35' RV. Maneuvering into position took a little work as most people want to face west for the view as opposed to the normal back in. But after the 14 mile warm up on the narrow road to the park, getting into the spot was easy. Electric panel has 30a & 20a outlets. We just used the 20a into a 50 adapter.
Beach was really nice and the remoteness provides for no crowds. We did try the famous Jalama burger but it wasn't for us. The only negative, and it wasn't the facility's fault, was that tar balls were starting to show up along with some bigger pieces. I'm not sure wether or not it was related to the oil spill north of Santa Barbara, but became very noticeable on our last morning walk. - MarkH

We loved staying at Jalama Beach. We had reservations for a week, but decided to move into a first-come site for an additional week because we liked it so much. First the negatives: our site was up on the top tier and it was challenging to back into, the park gets a fair amount of day users and there is almost nothing out there but the beach, the store and the grill. That being said, it is one of our favorite parks because of the beach, the grill and the activity around the park. It felt like a little village, with friendly people and the local post office/store/restaurant as a hang out place. The beach was gorgeous and you could walk in either direction for miles and very quickly get as much solitude as you wanted. The sunsets were spectacular and our site had a great view. It was fun watching the surfers and kite surfers play. The nearby (30 minutes) town of Lompoc had a great farmer's market and one of the most beautiful missions we have every visited. The weather was delightful, if windy some days. We would most certainly come back here. - MrSunshine

The most depressing base and miserable RV park ever. The site was paved, but warped from heat or roots so bad that it was impossible to get level. We had site 18 which had a street light that rivaled the sun. Literally, it was just as bright in the RV at night as it was during the day. There is no playground or anything to do here. Never again. - Bill & Alisen

Nice park with friendly hosts. Our site was somewhat unlevel, but workable for the two day stay. WIFI was excellent. - vwbluestar

First off we appreciated the ability to stay here as instructors on base even though we are not military. We had to be sponsored, but it was well worth the time it took to jump through all the required hoops as our commute was about 3-4 minutes vs. half an hour. Check in was, well, interesting. The person working the office seemed overwhelmed by the simplest of tasks. I repeatedly asked her to call me to take my debit card information for payment as there was an issue when we checked in. That call never happened and I had to scrape together cash to pay as I do not travel with checks. The site we had (13) was a pull through. Trees narrowed the site a bit and made receiving our DirecTV signal a challenge. The resident host was a very nice, helpful man who was pleasant to speak with. We met several more permanent residents who were all very pleasant to speak with. The restrooms and showers were clean for the most part, although I have seen cleaner. I would give them a 7 out of 10. Thank goodness for "shower shoes". I was told all sites have only 50 amp service so keep that in mind. The vehicle search at the Lompoc Gate was relatively quick, although I did not appreciate having to sit in a room and not watch what was being done in searching my RV. I guess that is the price you pay for the privilege of staying in an RV on base. Overall our stay was pleasant and I would definitely stay here again if ever providing additional training on base. - JERICO1

We arrived at the park and checked in, we were given site 419 which is a deluxe site, had a gas barbecue and a wood fire pit. And picnic table. Large, concrete site with plenty of room. Grass all around, so no dust at all. We were very close to hwy 101 but road nose was very low.
This park was just remodeled: has bocce ball court a swimming pool and playgrounds for kids. They're adding another pool and won't be in until next summer. Everyone that worked here was very helpful. Large roads coming in and out.
The only problem we had was the pool was overcrowded with lots of kids. Kids were also in the hot tubs. They needed to have an adult time in the pool. - Crbus

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. Our first visit here. This park is really 2 parks in one. The older section has dirt/gravel spaces with large trees with wide shade. It appeared that there are many longer term residents in that section and a few of those units appeared to be in poor condition.
We stayed in the newer section which had concrete pads and no shade. This was just fine with us since we watch satellite TV. I don't think that would be possible in the older section.
The office / pool area / diner were in nearly new condition. The staff very friendly and helpful. There was a fenced off section in the newer area where the staff told us that a 2nd pool is under construction.
Power supply was consistently good as was the water pressure.
The staff were holding games & events throughout the weekend, mostly for kids. They also showed free movies in a grass area each evening. Lots of kids running around and riding their bikes. There are 2 nearly new playgrounds for the kids. Staff were around regularly and appeared to be enforcing the rules. The bathroom & shower facilities are in great condition. They are serviced once a day but could have used more frequent service on this very busy weekend. We had a great time here and will definitely return. - Gaucho Mac

Reservation site claims "water available", and it was - from a spring-handled tap with no threads for a hose connection. So if you're in an RV, you are dry camping. But the ocean is nearby, so maybe that counts as water, too. Wind was screaming when we arrived, howled all night, and into the next day. We had reservations for two nights, but left after the first. Coin-op showers looked unappealing, restrooms filthy. - TP2ARNs

This appears to be a day use area turned into a campground. Your site is actually a parking stall with another stall next to it for your tow vehicle or toad. There are two stalls immediately next to you. These stall are spread out in a circle around a dirt center island used by family tenters, which seems to dominate this park. It's overpriced and not really designed for RVs, especially anything over 25'. Would not go back at any price. - Blue Highways Traveler

I stayed here overnight while traveling through. The campground is situated in a small bowl, surrounded on the sides by small hills. A sign on the kiosk warns you of potential high winds (and no refunds). When I was there, however, there was no wind. In fact, I was wishing for a small breeze, as it was quite warm. The hills seem to hold in the heat. The way to the beach is under the train trestle. This would by a nice place for families or groups to stay while you visit and do other activities in the area. The restrooms and showers were clean. The showers require quarters and have good, hot water. However, the fee is $45!! I just can not justify paying that price for a mostly basic campsite. While my stay there was adequate, I probably won't be back. - AV-Ed

Beautiful Elks RV park on Lodge property. They no longer offer cable TV. Easy on and off highway 101. Lodge secretary will take reservations. - firedguy

Nice Elks. Need to be a member. We stayed in the full hook-up section. Watch the water pressure! Pretty high. Some road noise from the nearby 101, but not bad at night. Good location to explore the area in between Paso Robles and Santa Barbara. Found some fun wine tasting in the Foxen Canyon area. We would stay here again. - AKBOB

Elks Members Only. Two lots, one with 12 sites with water and electric . Another with 14 sites with full hookups. Office staff extremely helpful. Reservation possible. Very active lodge, Friday night "cook your own" special. Very popular. Meals most nights. Pet friendly. Strong Cable TV, WI-FI spotty in lots, Strong inside Elks. Working on outside antenna. Probably best run Elks Park we have stayed in. Close to Freeway, Wine Country, Pismo Beach, Solvang, Avila Beach. Will be back. - silverado

Nice park nestled in pines trees? Large Spaces. nice pool. Right near town. Provided fire pits. enjoyed our stay. The office only seemed to be open from 1100 am to 1200 am and again from 300pm to 400 pm. Took a long time to get the manager on the phone to get reservations, but we enjoyed our stay! - 10shifter

Great WiFi, good laundry. It is across the street from a great park that the dogs and we used twice a day. It is also across the street from a fire station and next to a very busy road that has a sound barrier wall that reflects all traffic noise. Do not stay in spaces 1-5 for that reason. The local shopping or services. - bobcovey

Very nice park. Clean and taken care of. Had other nice campers all around. Experience was very pleasurable and fantastic weather. Decent sized spaces. Problem with a few trees not being trimmed back good enough for large rigs though. Another problem we had was with the sewage drain. The pipe was above ground about 12-18" and made it VERY difficult to drain tanks. It took both of us to empty and probably about an hour to empty all three tanks. When we arrived, the office was closed, however; there was a lighted board with our name (incorrectly spelled) and the space number. That's it. No other information. No welcome (except by Jackson, the resident park greeter kitty). The office/store did not open until the day we left on the morning of the 7th! We were not sent a confirmation e-mail. We hoped that we had a spot. We had to bother other campers for the Wi-Fi information. Otherwise, we would not have had Internet the whole time there. The "store" has SO much potential. The shelves are bare. The pool was sparkling, but the hot tub looked like it was all moldy even though there had been some people using it. Perhaps it just needs refinishing. Close to the freeway (101) and an amusement park, but it wasn't too noisy. There are some long term residents and some that must always live there by the looks of all the junk around their "home". Overall, though, our experience was very nice and we definitely want to go back. We are hoping that the lack of attention was due to a holiday weekend and not the situation normal. - tomandlori

We love going to Refugio SB, clean and quiet park especially after school in back in. We always stay in site #27, which has a good view of the beach and ocean. This park is nice because the park is level with the beach no cliffs in the way or stairs needed to get to the beach. Park is well maintained and clean. Didn't use restrooms or showers, from looking in they appear to be clean. This year they replaced all the picnic tables with new wooden ones. Like watching the surfers surfing at the point and local school kids learning how to kayak. There is a lot of areas to hike and bike. When we were here last spring we seen several whales migrating north close to shore. We were in a 35-footer. - National RV Dolphin

Refugio is a beautiful beach quite and clean. Lots of places to walk you pets. Our site 27 has a good view of the ocean and can watch the surfers at the point from our site. There were several empty site the week we stayed. There is a camp store but never have seen it open, wasn't open the week we stayed last October either. Probably just open on weekends. We were in a 35 ft RV so there's only a few sites that will fit us. We will be back in the fall. - National RV Dolphin

We spent two nights here. Maybe because there are no hookups, I would estimate that this park was 90% tent campers. They did not appear to be enforcing the 8 campers per site rule when we were there. The beach is rocky and the water was a murky brown color. It was not inviting for a swim or even to sit and look at. Campfires and BBQs were going most of the time. Both AT&T & Verizon connections were spotty. We will not stay here again especially at the current state park rates. - WinnebagoTraveler
