Very nice place to stay. Windy, but dunes were wonderful. Close to Morro Bay, Pismo Beach, Santa Maria, and San Luis Obispo so very centrally located. Beach is close by. Had only one problem. Motorhome next to us blocked us in, and we couldn't get our 36-foot 5th wheel out of our space. However, office staff was great, and they allowed us to stay an extra five days. Will definitely go back over and over. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Places to eat - Splash for Clam Chowder, Shaw's in Santa Maria for Steak, Dockside II for fish, and the Rooster Creek Café in Arroyo Grande for the best pizza we have ever had.

+ 5 gravel/dirt sites are level side-to-side; elec OK [voltmeter at 110 with space heater and hott rodd on]; quiet; extensive sand dunes are close

- 5 no cable, wi-fi is Tengo [$]; no trees or privacy hedges; park is run down: fences are falling, trash overflowed the dumpster; overpriced at $56.

We plan to try another park next time to see if a nicer park overcomes having ready access to the dunes. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The $18 rate reflects the RPI rate. The sites are gravel with full hookups, cable TV, and a picnic table. If you have your own fire ring you can burn wood. The sites are quite narrow, so when you and your neighbor have the slide-outs out, there's not a lot of space for your outdoor "patio". There is no shade, but usually there is a nice breeze from the ocean. We were parked next another couple traveling with us in their coach. So we parked to one edge of our site giving us more room in between for our common "patio" area. There are beautiful sand dunes between the park and the ocean. But don't think it is an easy walk to the ocean - it's over a 1/2 mile of rolling sand dunes. The restrooms and showers are clean. There is no pool or spa. They do offer horseback riding along the sand dunes to the ocean. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Motorhome.

While we really like this park’s people, staff and locale, I.e. beaches, dunes, restaurants, etc., we are losing patience with the lack of care the owners seem to take in the facility. While the staff is very helpful and seem focused on performing their tasks well, it appears whomever controls the budget doesn’t want to invest in a little TLC – pull weeds around horse shoe pits, repaint the laundry/bathrooms, ensure washers/dryers function properly, put "solid" doors on showers stalls, etc. Day rate calculated with Coast To Coast discount. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate noted in for Coast-to-Coast Good Neighbor Park ($15 + $3 resort fee); same fee would apply for RPI. Both of these programs are only available during the off-season period which ends on May 15th. Very friendly and helpful staff. They graciously accepted our Priority Mail shipments for us. Our site #176 was a pull-through with a great view of the dunes. You can access the dunes from the campground. The paved roads are easily negotiated with our 40 foot motor home, towing. The site had a very solid gravel base and reasonably level, full hook-up with good 50 amp service. All the sites we saw had picnic tables but the sites in our area were very narrow. Site width is a non-issue for 176 because it's next to the restroom and had extra space. There's no shade for the pull-through sites in our row but that made it easy for satellite TV reception. Our Verizon service was 4 bars with 4G. We would have stayed longer but our rate would increase significantly if we extended our stay. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is on the edge of the sand dunes in Pismo beach when we looked at the web site it made it look like the beach was within walking distance. The dunes are a good 1/2 mile of huge rolling sand hills so do not plan on walking to the beach. You can rent horses and ride to the beach. It was $50 an hour. This park also does not have many amenities; it’s a bare bones park but it was pretty clean. 2 complaints, the people here drive through the park very fast. They have a speed limit of 10 but it's not enforced. Also even though there are dog baggies right before you enter the sand dunes most people either bag it and leave the bags out in the sand or they don’t bother to bag it at all. But all in all it’s a clean park and in a nice quiet location. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

So we "won" a week in this campground....so I shouldn't really complain but if I had been paying full price, I'd not stay here. The use of "Resort" in the name is a stretch! Your on/near the Dunes but the CG has No pool or spa. The bathrooms/showers could use some updating, cable provides about 20 channels, if you want Internet access its via Tengo-net for 17.00 a week, the sites are extremely close together although we were fortunate to get an end site(#34) which provided a little breathing room. The CG has a number of full time occupied sites. The access to Pismo eateries/shop's was pretty good, only a few miles down the road. All the utilities were good, Verizon cell excellent and AT&T WEB access was good too, no worry about good Sat signals...no tree's to be found. We stayed a week. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We like so many things about this park - nice staff, friendly campers, long term sites are clean/neat, great views, near to beaches/dunes, restaurants, etc. etc. etc. We just wish they would apply some basic TLC. You know - paint bath/laundry rooms, ensure washer/dryers work properly, install solid doors for shower enclosures, etc. We will probably continue to go but it would be great to see some improvements.

Great scenic place to rest up and enjoy the scenery of the dunes. Clean and well kept place. We saw the maintenance guy throughout the day carting around. We would come back to this place. Nothing beats waking up to see the dunes. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice campground, clean and well kept. The sites are a little tight on busy weekends, but the dune access is great. We would definitely come back. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We loved this camp! The camp sites were flat and level. It was just a short walk to the sand dunes and the beach was about half mile away (over sand dunes). The camp staff was nice and helpful. They offered boogie boards for just a deposit. There is a horse rental corral nearby. This camp is best if you want to be away from the city. It's about a 5 mile drive north to Pismo Beach. We will be back again. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

+7 Gravel pull through on the upper level; electric was good. Usual wind, but no problem. Nice walk on the dunes, which extend to the ocean. -3 Downside: needed levelers in front, the price included a $3 “resort” fee, and the laundry is unacceptable.

Nice, no frills, out in the country feel, campground. Fairly long pull-through sites, though rather tight between spaces. Wifi is available but not free. My Verizon mifi & Sprint phone worked well here. No planes, trains, or automobile noise though you can hear the waves from the ocean from a mile away over the sand dunes. The sand dunes were really cool. You have to climb over several to be able to see the ocean, but it is worth it. Staff was very nice and gave places to see in the area. The laundry facilities were a little worn, but they worked. We had problems with a barking dog a couple of days but for the most part loved our stay. It isn't well marked to get here, and I was kind of unsure of where I was going as this is down a road that dead-ends at the park. The park & the horse corral are the only things on the road. You do go over a train track to get there, but I only heard the train a couple of times, and it was only for a short time. There was wind coming off the ocean ever afternoon, but it wasn't bad, just cool. I would definitely stay here again. The dunes are very pretty and ever changing.

We stayed here with the Travelers from Santa Maria Elks Lodge 1538. The site was level and we had a pull though. This made it easy and saved my wife from trying to direct me backing in. The club house was nice and very clean and the staff was also helpful. If you like to walk, hike or just enjoy the watching the dunes and ocean. This is the park for you.
