Oceano Dunes SVRA (State Vehicular Recreation Area) is 56 miles south on Pacific Coast Highway 1 of the Hearst Castle Visitors center but is so incredible and offers a camping experience which is so unique I thought it should be included on the list of campgrounds near Hearst Castle. This is one of the few California beaches where you can actually take your trailers and RVs right down on the beach and camp right on the sand. Oceano Dunes is also one of the few places you can borrow a wheelchair which can go on the beach right down to the waters edge. This area also loaded with fun recreational activities; check out the things to do at Pismo Beach in Photos Slide Show to learn about the areas recreational possibilities. There are several cities whose boarders are blurred and they blend into one big fun place Shell Beach, Pismo Beach, Arroyo Grande, Oceano, Guadalupe and Nipomo all present vacationers fun and interesting exploration and activity opportunities. This page is basically about campgrounds to enjoy during a vacation including Hearst Castle so although this is 59 miles south of the Castle you could easily invest a day or week to vacationing and sightseeing the area from a campground base camp. Oceano Dunes SVRA offers the most unique opportunities but there are several other great coastal camping areas, another State Park in Pismo Beach (Pismo State Beach) and numerous private RV resorts which offer camping are in the area too. One of my all-time favorite camp resorts is Pismo Coast Village RV Resort.
