Thumbs up Campgrounds in Central CA Coast Area?

Hello all! We have Googled until our eyes are crossed and aren't having much luck. We have been staying in Anaheim for a few days and are wanting to ease farther north. Can anyone recommend a spot or two? We've come up with Flying Flags and have found listing for the State Parks, but we are looking for full hook ups? Do the SPs here have full?

Would even be willing to travel farther north for a nice place? Paso Robles area in particular, or in the vicinity.

Day three in the new AS. No fires, floods, locust or explosions I am happy to report. Looking forward to seeing the PCH (with AS NOT behind us).

Thanks in advance,
Becky

Becky,

Few State Parks have full hookups, most are dry camping some with water and electric. Flying Flags in nice and Wine Country in Paso Robles.

Kirk Creek up Highway 1 is spectacular, but it's basically boondocking.

Thanks! We'll look into these. Looking for more amenities for a few days. Need to do laundry (bleh) and pay bills (bleh). No wi-fi at this park. Nice location though. Husband was not nearly as excited as I was that it is somewhat close to the Ikea store. You guys just don't know how to have fun. What could be more exciting than holding our purse while we pick out place mats???

Rooster55,

You may want to check out El Chorro Regional Park on Hwy 1 between Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo. This topic came up on a previous thread and El Chorro was rated highly-- about $31 for full hook ups in a beautiful setting. Morro Bay State Park is beautiful if you can handle only having power and water.

I would recommend staying at Lake Cachuma (Santa Barbara County Park) has full hookup sites and is in wine country close to Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, etc. and lots of wineries. Have fun!

Thanks again for suggestions. We are tucked into the Wine Country RV Resort in Paso Robles. Wow! The place is immaculate and close to everything. We may not budge for several days.

Just saw this thread but was going to recommend Wine Country. We live in Paso and my husband knows the owners. We have recommended it to other friends and I'm happy to see from someone who isn't "obligated" to tell us it's nice that it is in fact as nice as we've heard. Need any restaurant recommendations?? Enjoy the area....we love it!

If you have some good restaurant recommendations, for that area, let them flow. I know I'd be interested. One of my favorite things when traveling is eating good local food, and lots of it.

Best part of flying flags it is just about 5 minutes to Solvang

.... And the worst part is that it is just about 5 minutes to Solvang. Use to like Solvang ~15 years ago, but it is just too much of a tourist trap for me. BUT it is a gateway to the southern end of the Central Coast wine country with a lot of good wineries in the area.

Have fun! Lot's of wineries to visit around that campground. But if you like beer, you gotta visit the Firestone Brewery. They offer tours of the brew making, and tasting in the tasting room. We really enjoyed that.

We haven't stayed in Paso Robles, but yes, Wine Country RV looks very nice and is on our list of places we want to stay.

If you want to come inland, Bakersfield has a nice park. Bakersfield RV resort. They have everything including a restaurant and bar. Oh and there is a Camping World across the street.

Regarding Paso restaurants.....
Hands down, our favorite is Artisan. I heard a rumor that the chef is up for a James Beard award. Last time we were in, their gouda-porter fondue app was off of the menu but is amazing....must have if it is back on.
Another favorite is Il Cortile for fresh, seasonal Italian.
We love to have a cocktail and apps at Villa Creek and their menu is quite good as well.
For a completely indulgent multi-course French feast, Bistro Laurent is wonderful.
Thai--Basil
Sushi--Yanagi
All of the above restaurants are within a block or two of the downtown square/park. For a little drive south, McPhee's Grill in Templeton is amazing.
Then there are the wineries....too many to count anymore! My husband is in wine grapes, so we could make some recommendations on that front as well.
Cheers!
