21 Parks near Paso Robles, California
Nov 2012 - $26.00
Oh my, where to begin. The only reason we chose this park was we were in the general vicinity and had already had a long day drive. This park was about 10 miles off the highway and it had been raining for several days. First complaint was having to pay $2 each for small dogs that weren't even going to leave our motor home. The second, and main reason for the low rating was that this was a mud pit. And I do mean mud pit. The fall rains rendered this campground pretty much unusable. Just hooking up the water and power was a chore due to the slippery mud. We could hardly wait to leave at daybreak. We would never stay again. The only positive thing was it was near the lovely 18th Century Mission San Antonio de Padua, which was certainly worth the drive to tour. - Maudeen

Great campground! It was clean and well kept. The rangers were prompt in looking into electrical troubles. We needed them several times in our 6 day stay. But they responded within 10 minutes of each call. - Dana Austin

Really like this park, hookups are right on the water. Can moor your boat close to your site. A clean and friendly park - Marty & Yani

Price reflects July 4th holiday. This is a first come first serve site. You can drive around and take any open spot. Lots of tents in the sites but no rowdy parties. Kids had a good time and plenty of deer around. Concrete pads and dirt. - dragoncandy

My comments are essentially the same as last year when I said, "For the past 20 or so years we have visited this park usually at least once during the year. It seems the only thing that has changed is the price. I have a problem in that sites are not designated for RVs only. I have a bigger problem in that I cannot see that any improvements have been made over the years. This year we had to settle for a spot way up the hill from the Marina, not at all level, and if ever there was an asphalt pad, it had disintegrated. We will continue to visit here, most likely, as we rent a lodge unit for our grown children. That makes the discomfort of a far too costly site, in my opinion, amidst tents, worth while. There seems to be no rules as to where boats can be parked, even intruding into space of others. My preference is that if it is an RV space, the space should be restricted to RVs, not whoever gets there first with however many tents. This year, trying to use the dump station would have been hilarious, if not so frustrating. The person before me, 20-30 mintues later, was still in the process of dumping tanks. When he started hosing out the inside of his dump hose, I left, figuring I would find another place to dump my tanks. In short, this place needs lots of improving and monitoring to make sure rules are enforced. - artiemeek

Two ways to camp here. With hook ups at a site a mile and a half from the water, or without hook ups down by the water with all the other 'campers'. We've done both. Wouldn't suggest hook up area for anything longer than 30'. Roads are tight and trees are low. Definitely need to bring leveling blocks with you. A little quieter here than down below. The parking for campsites is fairly level and paved. Keep in mind you'll be surrounded by tents, trailers, RVs, or even people sleeping in the back of their trucks. This place has been around for a long time and it shows. The showers and bathrooms are beat but functional. There is a store onsite but they charge obscene amounts for the basics ($8 for a 20# bag of ice). Rangers disappear after 11 pm and you're on your own. Weekdays that's not so bad, but Fri- Sun forget it. Avoid the hassle and come in on Sun and pull out by Fri. After 30 years of camping here with a large group of family/friends,I think we'll look elsewhere for our annual event. Bummer... - mtshare

This campground features beautiful big trees and a wonderful lake. It is not like some lakes. Nacimiento Lake has lots of "fingers' so you can get out away from others into your own cove. - M&M California

Very convenient location right off the freeway but the left turn leaving or arriving can be a bit tricky. Nice staff, very quiet and level. Everything worked great. We only had a one-night stay but would come again. - Catsinatrailer

New management recently. Making sites that were too small into larger pull-throughs. Level, clean, good spacing. Good pool. Like this layout a lot. Second time we stayed here. Wish all campgrounds were this nice. - Sir_Charles395

Agree with previous reviews regarding full timers keeping it very tidy and clean. HAD TO TAKE DOG TO VET AND MANY CAMPERS CHECKED ON HER STATUS. Restrooms were spaciuos and clean. Site was large with lot of grass. Lot of room was walking the dogs. Near wineries and town. Highly recommend. - JOHNGW

My wife and I selected The Vines as the inaugural destination for a newly purchased 5th wheel, and it turned out to be an outstanding choice. Our pull-thru site was well landscaped with discrete hedges and fragrant smelling trees. The site's surface reminded us of textured slate and was superbly level. The inherent road noise from adjoining Highway 101 was noticeable but not so loud as to disturb our sleep. Sites are also quite wide and long enough to accommodate the largest motorhomes and trailers. Interior roads are wide enough to make backing in very convenient. Two dog areas are provided and are very well maintained.
The Vines has two swimming pools, one for adults and the other for families. Even though the weather was in the mid-nineties during our late September stay, the pools and were lightly used, even though they were pristinely maintained. The hot tub was popular with the more longterm guests.
On the recreational side, winery visits are highly promoted as well jaunts to local breweries, especially the immensely popular Firestone-Walker brewery in Paso Robles. In addition, picturesque cities like Pismo Beach, Cayucos, Morro Bay and Cambria are no more than 30-40 minutes away.
We very much enjoyed our stay at The Vines and plan on making a return trip in the near future. - Professor Ken

These are not just concrete pads, they are pressed to look like slate. Each site has hedges on either side for privacy and a separate paved area for a picnic table.
I have never seen such elegant bathrooms and showers! And a bar, ballroom with crystal chandeliers, a quiet library where one can sit and read and an outdoor patio with tables and chairs and stools and bar height stools. In this patio area, there are two large pools and a hot tub. It is more like the Hilton than a campground.
Here's something I've never seen: There is a man from their crew out here this morning scrubbing each vacant site with a pressure washer!
What a wonderful place! Stay here! - Linda dlm

New park. Desert setting, so no trees or shade. Excellent facilities (pool, showers). Moderate noise from freeway. A bit overpriced. - Christopher Scott

Went here for two nights. Got a premium site. It was a pull in site for motorhomes. Nice concrete site with patio and bbq. Grass and landscaping with a great view. No one near us. Just perfect. We have stayed here before but finally chose a premium site on the cliff. Well worth the extra money for sure. - signaloil

We have stayed here a number of times. We stayed in the newly developed section of the park. Like some parks, they have added prefab cottages which detract from the attractiveness of the park. The new section has concrete patios but dirt parking for the coach. It is a little pricy. - RPFawcett

Beautiful well kept park, office personal was very friendly & accommodating. The first site was too short for our 40' rig; went to change to a longer site was not a problem. Each site has a grass area, table & shade tree. Utility pedestals are tall, watch for slide placement.
Be aware that many of the sites have a pronounced slope to them making leveling a bit of a challenge; our jacks were fully extended. Have a choice of concrete pad or gravel sites.
Upper level has nice views of the surrounding area. Beautifully maintained park with lots of amenities. Pricy but we were able to use our PPA mid week. Off the highway so was nice and quiet. Would have giving 5 stars except for the sloping concrete pads. Will definitely return for a longer stay. - RJWebb

We stayed one night just passing through. Although the campsites are adjacent to Route 101, there was not a lot of traffic noise. The folks at the lodge were very friendly. The WiFi did not work. There were full hookups to include 50 amps. We would stay here again. - Melodycthomas

Easy to get to from the freeway. Some freeway noise during the day. Good Wi-FI. Very clean. Nice lodge and friendly folks. Lots of wineries in the area. Easy drive to Morro Bay. Will return. - Sidewinder

Full hook ups ! Easy. To get into. Level gravel sites. Wi-Fi was fast & cable TV had like 50 channels. We needed a place to spend the night for a dinner date. Perfect. Use the 2nd driveway to get in.. - Tredguy

Camp Roberts is a military famcamp RV park. You must have a military ID of some type to stay here. It is located on the Camp Roberts California National Guard base 13 miles north of Paso Robles. The base is in horrible, decrepit condition. Shameful, actually. I feel bad for our National Guardsmen. The RV park is about four miles into the base and very poorly signed. There is road construction that makes finding it even more difficult. There are No bathrooms. Full hookups, but they are all on telephone poles. Gravel and/or dirt sites which are pretty level. Absolutely nothing around for many miles in all directions. No grass or shade anywhere. If you are looking for a one night stop over with full hookups, for ten dollars it's a good deal. For anything else, skip it. - Don Geidel

This park is under new ownership. Prices have gone way up. Not all higher-priced ocean view spots actually HAVE an ocean view (space 35.) 3 of the 5 dryers were broken. Management was heard yelling obscenities at a neighbor around 8pm (yes their TV was loud, but couldn't you knock on their door?) Free wifi, but only if you're parked close to the office. No cable. Crazy reservation system with rules that keep changing.
Great location across from the beach. Most spaces unlevel on gravel. - mac2school

We've stayed here many times over the years and is one of the best locations to stay if you want to just park and chill for the week or a weekend. Most spots are just ok with many permanent residents in this park. The only really nice spots are the ones with a view which are probably 8 in all. The spots towards the top of the park can be fairly loud given that the freeway is nearby. Although it's a treat to get one with a view, the main reason we enjoy this park is because it is just across the street from the beach and a short walk to downtown Cayucos. It's nice and quiet here and we try to stay here as much as possible, although it's quite difficult now a days to get a spot. - Clark Griswold2

We have stayed 3-4 times. Most sites have lawn and concrete patio with picnic bench. Mostly mobile homes. Many times the View spots have cars blocking view. Bathroom is clean, but old and rusty, "appears" dirty--need to update. Bring water as you can have rusty water come out of your faucets. It clears up eventually. Water tastes horrible. New owners have raised the price beginning Feb 2015. I do not see the value as satisfactory any longer. It is a 5 minute walk to town and ocean. If not for the proximity to the ocean, it would have a 3 or 4. - User3274

I've stayed here a number of times and have submitted good reviews about this park in the past. All of the services, except for the very weak internet, worked well and their facilities are kept somewhat clean. Access to the park off the freeway is easy and the sites, all back in, are big rig friendly with room for slides.
Unfortunately, this time I had the misfortune of having someone move in next to me who's dog continuously left little presents in my site. After complaining twice to the management and the problem not being resolved in any way I left for a more suitable park, just down the same road towards the beach.
This used to be a nice place to stay in, unfortunately the managements perspective of what their customers are entitled to seems to have drastically changed, very much for the worse. - waterboyv9n

Really a good park to stay at in Morro Bay. It is away from the wind and fog at the beach, great WiFi, a few good HD TV channels from the roof antenna to augment the cable. Great little dog run, good management, friendly neighbors, and quiet nights. There is an off leash dog park in town and an off leash beach area north of the city. What more could one ask for. There must have been a change in management since some of the lower ratings a few years ago. We would certainly stay here again. Love to hear the coyotes at night, too! - Snoet

Asphalt interior roads with good level gravel sites. Sites are very narrow with a car barely fitting next to the rig. No shade. Good place for sightseeing, but would not want to stay longer than a week or two. Good, strong Wi-Fi. Folks are nice, laundry large and clean. Would stay again. - runamuka
