Is this a luxury RV park? NO. But you get great bang-for-the-buck. You're a half mile walk from the Beach...and you can drive on the beach here, too. You only have 30amps here but you probably won't run one AC let alone two or three, so 50amps really isn't necessary. Make sure to have adapter.

Yes, you are in between PCH-1 and the railroad tracks but the noise wasn't bad, especially at night while you're trying to sleep and I did have the windows open. AMTRACK doesn't run overnight and when it does come thru, it's past you in seconds.

I had no problems getting in or leaving. Everything worked. You don't have WiFi but remember, you're not paying super high prices like you do elsewhere. I wasn't disappointed with this place and I would go back tomorrow.

Staff was VERY helpful. I didn't get to use my DISH because I got stuck behind a tree: luck of the draw. Cable worked OK most of the time. Lots of selections. You don't have a picnic table or fire pit at each spot, but there are several of these around the park. First come, first serve. Weather here can't be beat. We camped at Coastal Dunes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Very good Mexican restaurant, Old Juan's across from the south end of the park and a colorful diner in a railroad car about a block south of Old Juan's. I recommend both. A couple miles up north of the park on PCH is Old West Cinnamon Rolls, best I've ever had.

The other reviews of this park were spot on. I used the Good Sam s book to find a park in this area and I called about a completely different park that was $9 cheaper per day but the reservations were for this park which was nearly 40 additional miles away. When we arrived at the park that I had first called about it was after 5pm and of course there was no one to answer the phone, much less help to figure out that we had nearly forty more miles to drive after dark. When we did arrive at this park we found it to be very poorly lite and not well marked plus the roads are very narrow without many markings which let us get headed into our area going the wrong way. While getting turned around we managed to damage our motorhome due to the tight turns and dark and narrow streets. We would not stay at this park again. I will pull into camp wally world before driving in the dark to a campground. We camped at Coastal Dunes RV Park in a Motorhome.

The campground is between a railroad and a busy highway. The site we were in was about 25-30 feet from the road. The road noise woke us up a few times when the big trucks went by. The site grass was mostly dry and there are a lot of low spots and bare dirt. The site was not long enough to accommodate a 33-ft 5th wheel and the truck. We had to park across the small road. The staff was friendly taking the reservation. They charged a $8 reservation fee. We camped at Coastal Dunes RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are very short and narrow. Campground is situated between a very busy PCH and a railroad track. Reservation was made with a very friendly lady, check-in was less friendly by a different individual. We camped at Coastal Dunes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Held a family reunion at this campground (50+ people). Half of us were camping in RVs, half in tents. Staff at park were very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately, due to budget cuts, there were no picnic tables at any of the campsites we were in. Hard to have meals together. Street noise was annoying, but surprisingly the train wasn't that bad. Kids enjoyed the pool. I was told the restrooms were pretty seedy. Had a problem with our sewer not draining, and maintenance came right away to try and fix it. There are several full time residents in the area we were camped, very friendly and let us use their picnic tables. We camped at Coastal Dunes RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

VERY TOUGH to park a large rig. If you do go the wrong way and the back in. Pet fee (not in 2008 Trailer life) is $3 per dog per day. The sewer connections are raised and the connectors must be raised to empty the water. Also make sure you have extensions on your sewer connectors as you will need it. Spaces are very tight and the train tracks are 100 feet from the sites. Highway 1 is 100 feet on the other side. They have shared fire rings. It is very crowded on the summer weekends making the pool area almost unusable. Trash cans are at the ends of each section. We camped at Coastal Dunes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our family moved to this park when it was Sand & Surf. We have lived here for well over 4 years. When this park was taken over by the county it went down hill quickly. The grounds are neglected, and the bathrooms have mildew and mold growing on the ceiling and walls. This is especially obvious in the shower stalls. There is fecal matter that has sat on the wall of one toilet stall for weeks now. This has been brought to the staff's attention, but nothing has been done. Needless to say, the bathrooms are unsanitary. We pay a monthly rate, but those that rent by the night pay $65 for a pull through. We camped at Coastal Dunes RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is now managed by San Luis Obispo County and has been renamed Coastal Dunes RV Park. The restrooms are in need of repair, the noise from Highway 1 and the trains can be unbearable. The pool is nice and clean, the sites have grass and while not huge are much better than Pismo Coast Village. This park really caters to senior citizens and and older families; with the exception of the highway and trains very quiet at night. The price is low for this area and last minute reservations are sometimes possible. However due to the noise I would not stay here again. We camped at Coastal Dunes RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

The spaces were very tight and the R/R tracks run right behind the campground trains run all night. We camped at Coastal Dunes RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
