Overall nice park, they just do not get some of the extra's campers are looking for. Our site was level with small grass picnic table and fire pit, all good. We have two dog's and the pet areas were very poor and too small. The internet was to slow and did not work the last day at all. INTERNET IS IMPORTANT!!! An internet password 5th#3N*QP%6 and then it does not work 3 or 4 times in a row. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park boasts that it has been recognized as the, ". . . best medium sized park in California . . ." numerous times. It might well have been 30 years ago when I first visited. Since this is coastal Cal, the sites are very close together. It is predominantly the dreaded side-by-side hookup. This is where the bigger rigs are going fit. When reserving our site, I clearly explained exactly what I wanted, letting it be known that we would postpone our visit if what I wanted wasn't available. Upon arrival, the site they had identified for us was neither long enough nor wide enough. (This also happened to a couple that arrived in the site next to us.) They did find us another site. Multiple times my wife & I expressed our appreciation, but we should never have been assigned that first site to start with. While there, I read a review criticizing the lack of enforcement of noise violations. I also read management's response. Basically it was that the violation occurred after office hours & that if you complain we'll do something about it. Neither of those attitudes sit well with me. On the plus side, the park is attractive. The office & grounds people are just great. I found it very reasonably priced given its location. Only on 2 of our 10 evenings was it 'lively' enough that I couldn't sit outside & read wearing noise canceling headphones. For what I'm looking for - safe and quiet - it is the best choice in the immediate Pismo area. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very tight spaces, you face the camper parked next to you. Weird...sewer connections aren't near anybody's connections.

Was told not to park our golf cart on the lawn so we parked it right up against our trailer but the sprinklers flooded our cart and left the lawn dry.

Poor maintenance.

Never stay here again. Way too crowded and expensive for a Sunday night. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

It's a lovely place to park your rig for a few days to explore the coast. Unfortunately, we didn't have our tow'd with us so we were pretty much confined to the park itself. That was OK, we were just trying to get out of the Las Vegas heat for a few days, so it worked out just fine for us.

The grounds are well kept, the pool and hot tub were lovely. The employees were nice and helpful. The size of my rig meant that I had to literally drive all the way around the park in order to access our site - any other turns would have been impossible with 42'. It wasn't a problem, just making you aware.

The site itself was nice, though nothing special. Every site except ours had a fire pit... which would have been nice on those 50° evenings. It's a bit of a walk to the beach - about a mile or so - and you have to go through about 3 blocks of industrial streets to get to the path, but they seemed safe enough during the day.

One word of caution: The sewer connection is all the way at the end of the hookup island in between spots. It took all 20' of my stretched out sewer hose to make it; those of you with 10' or 15' hoses will need an extension.

It was nice, but a little expensive. Would we go back? Yes, probably, but with a tow'd to drive around in. Pismo Beach is a strange little town (what we saw of it) but it's worth exploring for some of the really good restaurants and beaches. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Right down the street is an EXCELLENT mom & pop grocery store. It was the cleanest, most well-organized store I think I've ever been in and the butcher counter had some extraordinary meats. I think it's called Central Market - it doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's a great place to stock up food and supplies.

The buddy setup for utilities means big grassy space between you and neighbor on one side. Very nice common areas with sparkling pool and hot tub and loads of attractive landscaping. Wifi was very good, water pressure very good, sewer was a bit of a stretch requiring 2 sections of hose to reach at rear of motorhome. Great dog walking throughout. Friendly, capable office staff.

Parked was packed; I guess we were lucky to get one night there. Sites share a pedestal, one rig N-S, the other S-N. Adequate space between neighbors. Friendly staff, seemed like there were lots of rules and extra charges. It bills itself as "voted best medium size RV park in California" -- I think it was just OK. The beach is about 1 1/2 miles away, and that is an Off Road Vehicle beach. Oceano does not offer much in the way of beach community stuff, but Pismo Beach is nearby and Arroyo Grande is very close. There are lots of RV parks nearby, this is one of the nicer ones. There are hundreds of RVs stored nearby, too. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

It was an average experience for the amount paid. RV sites are very close together. Pull-through sites are set up such that each RV pulls in from the opposite direction. As a result, both RVs doors face each other, which is a little awkward. It was a little uncomfortable to have to share the same grass strip with the family next to us. Pool, restrooms, and laundry facility were spotless. Close and short drive to beaches and activities. Even though the park was clean, I would consider staying here again only after exhausting other locations. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Staff was super friendly. The park is well kept and clean. It felt very safe to have our 6 year old riding around on her scooter. A lot of pet areas for our 4 legged daughter. Cant wait to stay here again. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tidy, compact. We had a grassy back-in for our trailer, but the big rigs were very close together on asphalt. No beach access as beach not nearby. Mgmt provides fire "rings" at no charge. Great firewood available from an independent seller located just a few blocks south on Cienaga. Park is code-controlled gated; surrounding residential neighborhood is rundown. $45/night rate reflects GS discount. No extra 11% tax charged here, unlike the bigger RV resort in Pismo Beach.

This is our second stay at PS RV Park, check in was a breeze, we requested a spot near the pool, which we got. Site was clean and well maintained. If there was a drawback I would have to say they maybe need to adjust the lawn sprinkers, when we woke up one morning our windows were wet. Normally I wouldn't complain, but I spent the better part of an hour cleaning the outside windows the day before! We enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back! We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park very nice if you have children. It appears to have lots to do, although we don't have children, so being there are so many here riding around all the time it is not our favorite.Do have to mention that the children were very well behaved. Restrooms were large and women's was clean, but husband said men's was a mess(especially with a lot of children here). Office help was very nice and we were lucky to get an end spot..Probably would not stay again as we like the smaller quieter parks..But good location...

The WiFi here is the best we have encountered so far. Big pull through spaces and plenty of things to do. Laundry was excellent, fairly priced and very efficient. Well paved interior roads and sites with grass side yards. Some shade sites. Close to restaurants, ATV rentals, and the beach. Very clean and well maintained RV resort. We would stay here again.

I am rating this a nine because of the side by side setup here. Everything else was great. We got there right after the office closed, but the lady came out and chose a site for us and said to pay in the AM and then opened the gate for us. It's a code gate and she has a remote. We got hooked up and walked the dog and got a look at where they are totally redoing the other side of the campground. We stayed here a number of years ago in a travel trailer and they had us backed up all the way to the fence and then complained about our 'Burb sticking kinda out in the road.That ain't gonna happen there anymore with the long sites they have put in now. They are still side by side, but nice setups. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

We've been camping in Pismo Beach for over 40 years. When we bought our 38' 5th wheel, the State campground wasn't so appealing any more. We tried Pismo Coast Village, but the sites were very tight and we had one of their bigger sites. We REALLY enjoyed our stay at Pismo Sands RV. We can't wait to go back and camp in the newly remodeled section, although our site #97 was fine. Staff are so nice and accomodating. We loved the evening spa visit. Although we were camping solo this trip, knowing that we can camp side by side with friends is very appealing. We had perfectly wonderful weather and it was an all around good trip. Will definitely come back to this campground. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I love this little park. Very clean, very quiet. Paved roads. Nice tree by most sites. Beach 2 miles. Downtown easy and interesting, especially by the pier. Really nice dog beach 8 miles. Managers and camp hosts very nice and helpful. Some sites are pretty close together, most have nice room. I recommend the left side of the park for large rigs, especially Class C. I was initially assigned the right side of the park and there was no way I could get in that spot. But they moved me right away without issue. I would definitely come back here and recommend it highly. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.
