The campground itself is a destination to enjoy, but Pismo Coast Village RV Resort makes the list of 4 best RV campgrounds on the Central Coast because of its location. From the campground, you can walk to Pismo Bay, the Pismo Pier, local shopping and restaurants. It is also only a short drive to many attractions including over 20 wineries, Charles Paddock Zoo, state parks, golf, and the Santa Maria Speedway.

The campground mixes luxury with camping, and if you don’t have your own RV, they have you covered with rental options, including Airstreams!

You can enjoy sitting around a fire pit or spend your time at the fire pit lounge. They offer the traditional camping amenities like a playground, dog park, pool, laundry station, and a convenience store. But, then they take it a step further with pool cabanas, a TV lounge, bus access for local transportation, a fitness center, and a wine and beer bar.

You can enjoy your entire stay without ever leaving the campground, but if you want to check out the local area, you will not be disappointed. Get in touch with nature by visiting the Circle B Bar Guest Ranch for horseback riding, Gaviota State Park located directly on the ocean, Nojoqui Falls Park, or Ostrich Land USA. There are also wineries, museums, hot air balloon rides, whale watching, sailing, golfing, and shopping. Everyone can find something to enjoy in and around Flying Flags RV Resort & Campground.

Bella Vista by the Sea

Bella Vista RV Campground Cayucos Central CoastIf you are looking for a truly oceanfront camping experience then Bella Vista by the Sea is where you want to be. This is laid back, on the ocean, camping like you won’t experience anywhere else.

You can take short walk to enjoy the funky beach town, Cayucos, or take in the stunning view from your campsite. Right from the campground you can see the state beach, Morro Rock, and the historic pier at Cayucos.

The beach between the south end of Cayucos and the north end of Morro Bay is a beach where dogs are welcome and can run off leash. Walk that beach any time of day and you will see dogs romping in the water and chasing balls down the sand.

The location provides you a great place to call home while you experience the local attractions like Highway 1, Big Sur, Hearst Castle, Los Osos Oaks State Reserve, and Morro Bay.

Cayucos itself has great restaurants and antique shopping. Or, just sit back and listen to the sound of the ocean waves and enjoy the salty ocean air.

Wine Country RV Resort

Wine Country RV Resort in Paso RoblesIf you want to pair a campground experience with the enjoyment of being in wine country, you owe yourself a visit to the Wine Country RV Resort, in the heart of Paso Robles.  Wine Country RV Resort is surrounded by vineyards, and across the street from the Ravine Waterpark, sure to be a hit with any children or adults who are children at heart.

When you are ready to step away from camp, you will have over 250 wineries to choose from for your wine tasting visits. If wine tasting is not your pleasure, try some of the local breweries, such as Firestone or Barrelhouse, which both have facilities in Paso Robles that serve food and their signature brews.

When you want a taste of town, it is just a short drive to the center of Paso Robles, with its central town park, anchored by an historical Carnegie Library (now a small museum), and surrounded by shops, galleries and restaurants… and more wine tasting!
