We decided to check in early to Pismo Beach just to make sure that we had some accommodation as California is much busier than other States. We stayed in a US Dept. of Forest Site right by the beach. It was great (our favourite camp site so far). We strolled down to the beach, it was lovely. RV’s were allowed to park up and stay the night on the beach. We got back about 7pm and yes you guessed it another BBQ & Camp fire. It was nice to hear the waves at night but it was a bit chilly!! We tried out the heated beds in the trailer tent. Luxury!! The following morning it was time to move onto Monterey on US1.
(The campsites we are now trying to book are from the US Department of Agriculture/ Forestry which allow you to stay in federal and state parks and property. They are only $20 per night and can be booked over the internet. This is actually easier than booking private campgrounds. Some are basic with no hook-up for electric or water. However, they are really big pitches in fantastic locations and everyone seems much friendlier. You can also have campfires which is now a must for Greg!)
