Great WiFi, good laundry. It is across the street from a great park that the dogs and we used twice a day. It is also across the street from a fire station and next to a very busy road that has a sound barrier wall that reflects all traffic noise. Do not stay in spaces 1-5 for that reason. The local shopping or services. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Very nice park. Clean and taken care of. Had other nice campers all around. Experience was very pleasurable and fantastic weather. Decent sized spaces. Problem with a few trees not being trimmed back good enough for large rigs though. Another problem we had was with the sewage drain. The pipe was above ground about 12-18" and made it VERY difficult to drain tanks. It took both of us to empty and probably about an hour to empty all three tanks. When we arrived, the office was closed, however; there was a lighted board with our name (incorrectly spelled) and the space number. That's it. No other information. No welcome (except by Jackson, the resident park greeter kitty). The office/store did not open until the day we left on the morning of the 7th! We were not sent a confirmation e-mail. We hoped that we had a spot. We had to bother other campers for the Wi-Fi information. Otherwise, we would not have had Internet the whole time there. The "store" has SO much potential. The shelves are bare. The pool was sparkling, but the hot tub looked like it was all moldy even though there had been some people using it. Perhaps it just needs refinishing. Close to the freeway (101) and an amusement park, but it wasn't too noisy. There are some long term residents and some that must always live there by the looks of all the junk around their "home". Overall, though, our experience was very nice and we definitely want to go back. We are hoping that the lack of attention was due to a holiday weekend and not the situation normal.

Too pricy for what you get! Pool was too cold to swim in! Amusement park (go karts, etc.) right next door...noisy on weekends. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Tent Trailer.Undo

Easy access from Hwy 101. Older park. Many long term tenants. There are pull through slots but it did not accommodate our in a 33' RV and truck. Sites are dirt/grass. We stayed in #24 and it was pretty level. I poked my head in to see that the restrooms were dated but clean. Pool was not open. Hot tub was open, but we did not use it. The water appeared clear, but I couldn't tell if the tiles were dirty or just old. I could hear traffic noise inside our rig, but it was not enough to keep me awake. Most of the people we talked with were friendly, and the grounds were clean. Okay for overnight, but I would not stay here more than that just because of the traffic noise. DirecTV dish and Mi-Fi were great. Price reflects a Good Sam discount, but I had to ask for it. It wasn't offered. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

This seems to be the only RV park around the Santa Maria area. Old and worn facilities; restroom/ shower building need cleaning. New electrical boxes at each site. Office closed when we arrived at 5:15; note on chalkboard confirmed our reservation but no other info provided nor obtainable -- for example, the code for restroom access -- until the office reopened at 9 AM. Adjacent to freeway. Lots of seedy long timers . Couldn't get Wi-Fi to work. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

People were friendly. Park is within driving of several beaches. May not be the best part of town, but no problems that I saw. Will stay again. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Stayed here one night. Was set up and the police showed up as a trailer was broken into. A lot of extended stay sites. Freeway noise was a little loud. Office closes early, night check in was easy with an OK site available. Would not stay here again We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

The better park available in the area. Shade, hookups, pool, Wi-Fi access. Bathrooms need attention. New ownership, last month, who are definitely trying to improve. A few long term residents remaining. Would stay again. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This is the only public campground in Santa Maria. Sites were large, the office has rather strange hours and when closed no information is posted about finding a site. Not the best part of town. That said, we had a good stay. Everything worked properly and nice pine trees all over. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

It gets a 8 because of its proximity to the freeway and the friendliness of the staff. We came in a little late and was greeted by a very nice man who assisted us to our site. It is a perfect location for an over night. I'm not sure I'd spend a lot of time at this park. If you have kids Boomers is right next door - we did not get any noise from Boomers though. Perfect. A good nights rest and we were back on the road. They give a Good Sam and AAA discount too. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

It is an older park. There are lots of trees and nice shade, but dirt spots. It would be a mess if were raining. Sites are wide. The Asphalt drive is VERY bumpy. You must go very slow or you will damage something or shake something loose. Good for one night but I wouldn't stay for a long period. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

The park is very nice for a short trip. It is the only RV park in town unless you are an Elk. Next to a minature golf arcade so good for the kids. Pool was clean looking but too cold to swim. Many pull thurs and easy to get in and out. No one there to check you in. Just park and leave your payment at the window. No credit cards. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Although this is an older campground, we found it acceptable and convenient to many activities and towns. Spaces were large enough for our 37' motor home with slide and our vehicle. It was quiet and the pool and spa seemed clean. Cost for unsecured internet access was more than expected at $20 a week, more than we pay per month at home. Most of the "speed bumps" mentioned in one previous review were actually huge tree roots lifting up the blacktop roads. This is a major flaw at this campground, however, if they fixed the road, they would have to remove most of the lovely trees, hence remove much of the shade that is provided. The people we met here, workers and campers, were friendly and pleasant. We would stay here again. They do give a Good Sam Club discount. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Poorly run, too many questionable fulltimers, run down old KOA but its the only park in town. Keep going up to Pismo area or south to Buellton. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Santa Maria Pines is nice as a home base for a night or three. It’s convenient to town, the highway and lots of nearby activities. Not much to brag or complain about except maybe the huge speed bumps in the driveway. Go Kart track next door closed at a reasonable hour so noise was not a problem. Caretaker was friendly. A couple of the seasonal neighbors were not. We camped at Santa Maria Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo
