Very nice family campground. Lots of recreational facilities that are kept in beautiful condition (pool, playground, etc). Sites are all hard-top with grass in between RVs. Corner/end lot sites have large grass yards. Disappointed in the front desk service. We spoke with the front desk 30 minutes before arrival and notified them we would be there a few minutes after closing. Upon arrival, our after-hours check in folder did not have the gate access code (we had to flag down someone who knew the gate code), no bathroom code and no Wi-Fi code. Had we been able to enjoy the amenities and Wi-Fi, I would give this park a higher score. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this park several times over the past 10 years. HOWEVER, when we stayed here with friends this time, the campground was ROBBED. Several campsites were hit. We called police and filed a report, but to no avail with catching the crooks. No security, cameras or surveillance at the campground. The surrounding area has always had homeless and questionable characters, but its never been a problem until now. With the amount of items that were taken from our camp, it had to be someone in a vehicle that drove in the park. The items left behind at our camp were also found in the mens restroom, so they have the security codes to get access to the park gate and the restrooms. Unsettling with little children camping with us. Unfortunately when reported to staff, no action was taken, with almost disregard for our safety. We WILL NOT stay here again. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff asked our friends to park their truck OUTSIDE the campground, which we didn't do, for fear of it getting stolen, since the campground got robbed. Overflow parking should be closer to your campsites.

We had a great time staying at Pismo Sands. We have been coming to Pismo Sands for years now. It's always kept clean & quiet.....except for the birds that wake you up in the morning. There is a train that goes by, but you get use to the noise. We couldn't keep our daughter out of the heated pool. We will be back again next year. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

We showed up an hour early and were not allowed onto our site, even though it was empty. We were also disappointed to discover that the showers required tokens to operate. Otherwise, our experience at this park was outstanding. It is a short, beautiful hike to the beach. The facilities are in excellent condition. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Quiet, playground was closed for refurb. Heated pool was nice and hot tub was large and great! Laundry room was clean and in great shape. Office shop was friendly and had a small but nice selection of snacks. Close but not walking distance from beach. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rock and roll diner down the road has fantastic food and fun atmosphere!!! Great staff-highly recommend eating there. You have to disconnect your tow vehicle and park it in front of your rv and park your rv at the back line in the pull thru sites or you will get in trouble. Sites are designed to line up in a way that the slide outs aren't back to back with your neighbor and they are very strict about this. Just an FYI

I don't like to write bad reviews, and we've stayed at this park before and been very satisfied. So we were disappointed that this trip went so poorly. We rented a cottage for 3 relatives and an RV site for our rig. My wife arrived in our car before I did in the RV but was not allowed to put the car in the RV spot until I arrived with the RV. So she had to park out on the street and wait even though the site was open and paid for. The cottage didn't have enough hot water for even one shower. When we walked over to visit in the cottage with our small dog, management (nastily) notified us that we had violated the pet policy and thus would forfeit our $250 damage deposit. So for the 3 day stay we put out, including damage deposit, $850 for the cottage with no hot water or workable WiFi and $148 for the RV site that my wife couldn't park our car in. Big money for rude service and no hot water. Not so good. Fortunately, there are plenty of other good parks in the area. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very close to beach! Love all the trees! Just a quick walk through the forest over the little hill and you are on the beach! 5 minute drive (2 miles I think) to bowling, shops, restaurants, etc. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Tent.

We enjoyed our stay at Pismo Sands RV Park. We arrived on a Tuesday and left on a Friday after learning that it's nearly impossible to get a weekend reservation during the summer months unless you book many many months ahead of time.

We were in space 25 which was not one of the 'buddy' sites. This was a great spot for us right by the footpath to the showers and pool and we had a bit more room that those parked in the 'buddy's sites. Our spot was too small for both our 25' travel trailer and Suburban so we had to park our vehicle in nearby parking one row away from our site.

The showers and restrooms were very clean. The showers were good and hot with adequate space to hang you towel and a bench for your shower items.

We were hoping to camp closer to Pismo Beach but those parks were all sold out. We drove up to see them and were surprised to see how close the RVs are parked to each other with no grass. Pismo Sands RV has some individual spaces if you're not in a large RV and the grass was green and well-kept.

The WIFI worked (albeit slowly) and the cable TV was adequate. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return next time we're in the area. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very well maintained but our site was against the Hwy creating a lot of traffic noise from Hwy 1. No visitor parking for guest. They must park outside the park and walk in and this can be a couple blocks or more from the site. A little busy & crowded during the summer season which I understand. Be better visited in the off season. Had to back-in travel trailer all the way back beyond the asphalt to have room to park my tow vehicle within the site. Otherwise it was suggested that I park my tow vehicle out in the street. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

When we checked in we were directed to a site near the garbage cans and the office. We were told that since we were only staying 4 nights that was all they had available. The park had other sites open. The site was under 2 large trees, there was no grass at the site, only mud. We could not sit outside and we tracked in mud every time we went into the motorhome. This was our 2nd trip to this park, the 1st one was fine, but after this trip, we will not go back. So if you don't stay for a week or more, you get the worst sites. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

WiFi was poor. They have too many rules for us. No rugs, No stakes to tie your dog to so he can be outside with you, no dog pens, no dog runs. Heck, they should just say no dogs. We have a cage like fence we like to use so our dogs can be outside with us without a leash. Not allowed. It doesn't have a floor so I don't know what the big deal was. The person in the office told us to park our car in front of our RV, which required us to have the RV back more than it really should have been. This caused the picnic table to be located in an area almost in front of our RV so it could not be used. It would have been a lot better if we could have moved our RV up and parked behind. But she was very firm on what she wanted us to do. I wouldn't go out of my way to go back here again. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

Most of the sites are pull-through. All pull-through sites are "buddy" sites. As a result, your slide outs are about 2-3' from one another on the utility connection side. The sites are fairly short. Our 40' MH and Jeep barely fit on our site. Sites are blacktop. No patios, but they do have grass between sites. The grass area is shared between sites. We luckily had an end site so our grass area wasn't shared with our neighbor. Can not put any rugs, etc. down on their grass. Gated campground requires a code to open traffic arm. The narrow streets and sites can require some maneuvering to get your RV properly onto the site. The park is kept clean and neat. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great park. Everything about this park is clean. You will never meet a more friendly staff, who will go out of their way to assist you. We have stayed there in the past and will in the future. Have stayed at other parks in the area and always come back to this one. The park is very dog friendly, with two dog areas and plenty of pooh bags located throughout. The showers are well maintained and clean. The pool and spa were clean. Plenty of grass areas for my dogs to enjoy. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
