    We recently enjoyed a few days at this awesome place, we really enjoyed the campground and the area, couple of negatives, if you bring dogs, they are not allowed in the trails or at The beach, also lots of ticks, so you need to be aware, also thought the had a place to fill water, we had a Dougherty at our site# 64, but it had a lick on it, not sure why,no biggybt I’ll ask next time, it would have come in handy when we ran out of water in the evening, our sensors in the RV gave us a bad report, and it was our first trip. But over allá great experience, do stop at Sebastian’s in nearby San simeo, across the entrance to Hearst Castle for some wine tasting and a delicious burger, I highly recommend their green chili 1/2 burger and shared i with someone is huge, and onion rings! Happy Camping!
