Avila / Pismo Beach KOA

Please be advised this is a Non-Smoking campground. We do not have tent or personal vehicle camping. No RV? We have cabins available.

The comforts of a small beachside town and the quiet of a beautiful California canyon await you at the Avila/Pismo Beach KOA. The surrounding hills protect the Cabins and 50-amp hookup sites from ocean fog. The temperate weather means campers can enjoy the nearby trails and pet-friendly bike path year-round. Also on-site are all the amenities of home, including a laundry facility, showers, swimming pool, gaming room and a kids' play area. Everyone enjoys the petting zoo, hayrides and a destination farm just across the street from the campground. Nearby, you can visit vineyards and a farmers' market, along with the quaint communities of Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo. Explore the natural wonders of Pismo State Beach and Pismo Dunes Natural Preserve. Pool: Open all year. Max pull thru: 42 feet.
