Please be advised this is a Non-Smoking campground. Car/van camping not allowed. You must be in a fully self-contained RV manufactured for camping. There is freeway noise and the sites are narrow.

The comforts of a small beachside town await you at the Avila/Pismo Beach KOA. The temperate weather means campers may enjoy the nearby trails and pet-friendly bike path year-round. On-site are all the amenities of home, including a laundry facility, showers, swimming pool, hot tub, game 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 Avila Beach, Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo. Morro Bay, Cambria and Hearst Castle are a day trip away. 

Our KOA is open 365 days a year and is conveniently located off Highway 101. Due to our proximity to the freeway, you will hear some freeway noise. Our KOA is a smaller, older park with narrow sites.
