The park itself is nice. Large spaces, plenty of room. Very well maintained as far as landscaping. The bathrooms/showers/laundry facility are immaculate. Downfalls are the park is littered with trash. Walmart bags in trees, clinging to the shrubbery. Some folks allow their dogs to yap endlessly. Camp hosts are nice enough, but they don’t follow the leash rules. Many times they let their dogs wander around with no leash. The worst part for us was the heat. We made...

This famcamp is nothing special, it's very small but it's quiet and conveniently located to Pismo and Morro beach. Bathrooms are very clean. Laundry is away from the campground. $1.50 for washers and .50 cents for dryers. Sites are big and roomy. No wifi. Lots and lots of rodents so watch that they don't sneak inside. Lots of eagles circling. Very small commissary.  Not a bad place, just no amenities.  Playground for children but most of the equipment is...

This place is awesome!! Really enjoyed our time here. The campground is right on the ocean. You can spot seals, dolphins and whales and just about any time of day. Camp is very clean and pretty well taken care of. The laundry facilities are free!! Staff is amazingly helpful.  Only two downfalls: first DO NOT drink the tap water. It is over loaded with chlorine. You can smell it and most definitely taste it. It's so strong that some...

Absolutely nothing special about this famcamp. Very small place. The laundromat is fairly clean, machines are $1.00 each. Clean site with plenty of room. Some homesteading going on. The view it terrible. It overlooks a storage lot with mostly abandoned/junked vehicles. Watch out for the squirrels, they climb up inside your vehicle engines.  One guy has two little dogs and he walks them several times a day but never cleans up after them. Never used the bathrooms. Overall I...

The campground itself is awesome. Nice big spaces, clean, nice people.  The only downfall is the barking dogs. Everyone owns a dog and everyone lets them bark, and bark, and bark. Laundry room is clean, price is only a dollar for the washer and a dollar for the dryer. The place would be perfect if people would be considerate of those around them and quiet their dogs.

This place is a decent stay. Big, roomy sites with cement pads. There are NO picnic tables. Laundry facilities are rather pricey and there is not "plenty" of them. There's been a few times where you have to wait because they're all being used. Not a big deal though. Rec room is clean, nicely kept. Mail delivery is awesome.  UPS and FEDEX will both deliver right to your campsite. The commissary is very small and also rather pricey. It's...

We stayed in this campground from October 2014 to October 2015 and it was the worst camping experience of our lives. First of all there is more than just "some" homesteading, there is a lot of homesteading. Some of them have been there for 3+ years, and won't be leaving anytime soon.  Even though homesteading is against MWR rules, here it's overlooked because cash is king. Another problem is that if some of these homesteaders don't want you staying...

Lots of homesteading here. All the cement spots are filled with homesteaders. We had to stay in a gravel site which was very muddy because of recent rains. Dogs running off leash, with dog poop everywhere. In fact there's piles of it. Bathrooms are clean. Laundromat is also clean, but very small. Place seems to be fairly well maintained but they should really address the homesteading issue. Also someone should enforce the dogs on leash rules too.

This is a great little famcamp. Friendly management who made checking in a breeze. Excellent prices. The laundry room and bathrooms are very clean. Sites are a little small but that's ok, didn't need a lot of space anyway. We chose a gravel site with partial hook ups. Clean of litter and well cared for. Beautiful shade trees with plenty of songbirds. It was a little difficult to find if you don't know the area. All in all a...

Camp Carlson is a great place to stay. Sites are huge and the WiFi is great. Laundry area and bathrooms are spotless. Washers/dryers are only 1.00. The only bad things is they offer recycling for cans and bottles, but watched them throw all the recyclables into the dumpster. That was disheartening. The other bad part is the garbage that is all around the fishing pond. There are several trash cans located around the pond, but people just throw it on...

Stay here for 5 days and it was ok. The only real complaint I have would be the spiders. There are lots of them, everywhere. Otherwise it's a nice clean stay, friendly camp host. Sites are big and comfortable. Very nice walking trail through the woods that is well maintained. Laundry room is clean, but filled with spiders. If spiders don't bother you, then you'll like this campground.
