The campground shown here is located in Avila Beach, a beautiful coastal town that is absolutely stunning! This upscale home on wheels is all yours and the view is included! We've decided to place our trailer on the water in Avila Beach or any campground you might choose in San Luis Obispo County, California.
At this location you'll be steps from the sand and Avila Bay, but any SLO County campground you choose will have easy access to the beach, hiking, golf, restaurants, walking piers, fishing, boating, and unique shopping. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to experience one of California's best camping experiences on the Central Coast in the total comfort of this private 250 square foot home on wheels.
The RV has a complete kitchen, small bath, a sizeable living area, and a cozy bedroom with queen size walk around bed. This unit is completely furnished and outfitted with everything you'll need to enjoy the beautiful Central Coast area. Sip wine while watching the sea life and the sun set on the water, or wake to the smell of the wine country vineyards. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
Included are 2 bikes with lock and helmets for you to cruise the vineyards, the Bob Jones bike trail or any number of bike friendly roads and paths that weave their way through this beautiful area. Downtown SLO, Pismo Beach, Morro Bay, and Avila Beach are all favorites. Avila Hot Springs is also an easy ride, or take the See Canyon route where you can taste amazing Central Coast wines.
Important note about the campground at Port San Luis Harbor, Avila Beach:
All of the SLO County campgrounds on the Central Coast accept reservations, except for Avila Beach. From May 1st through November 1st we recommend that you make campground reservations at one of the other campgrounds, just to be sure you have a back up if Avila is full. Port San Luis (Avila) Campground does not take reservations so if placing the RV at this location during peak season is your first choice, plan to check in on a Monday – Thursday, and be prepared for second choice, especially if your trip is on or near a holiday weekend. Monday – Thursday check in will increase your chances of getting a site because the campground at Avila Beach is first come first serve and no reservations are taken by the Harbor District. Off peak times, usually after October and before May are much less crowded and you should not have a problem getting a spot at Avila during off peak.
Search all of the SLO county and state campgrounds. Pick 2 or 3 of your top choices and we’ll place the RV according to your top choice. There are many very nice RV sites in SLO County that just never fill up so you will be accommodated, but to be sure it’s always nice to make a reservation. Most campgrounds have very liberal cancellation policies so if Avila is first choice and we get your spot, simply call to cancel your back up reservation. You will know which of your choices we secured for you well before you check in.
This Avila Beach location has approximately 20 “full hook-up sites” and 30 dry camping sites. Full hook up provides water, power, and sewer. This type of site requires no need to move trailer to empty the holding tanks, run generator, or refill water tanks for the entire length of your stay. On the other hand, the “dry camping” sites have no utilities. There are two 38 gallon waste water tanks on board and one 45 gallon fresh water tank. With the right kind of “conservation” and utilization of campground showers you can easily dry camp for a week without moving the trailer. There will be an extra $75 dollar fee if tanks need to be emptied during your stay.
The Airbnb charges are for rental of this RV only. You will incur an additional cost for the campsite. Plan to spend from $40 to $60 per night in addition to the cost of renting this RV. The price varies due to several factors such as full hook ups or no hook ups, as well as whether the campground is private or public, state or county.
We will place the RV at your first choice of campground between 10am and noon on the day of your check in. If first choice is not available, we’ll set up at choice number two. We will contact you between 10am and noon on the day of your check in to confirm your location and campsite number. You will then be able to communicate your name and site number at the gate for directions, or if no attendant is at the gate, you can drive right up to your spot and park in front of the RV.
If we place the RV at Avila Beach or other campground location that requires payment, we will pay for the first night of your stay. You will be required to pay for your additional nights of your trip on the next day at the self-service kiosk, to the camp host, or at the front desk. We will leave a note in the RV with the additional amount due. Please write a check for the additional amount.

Russ was super accommodating - i arrived late, and not only did he placed the RV in a stupendous location, overseeing the ocean, he also made it completely ready for my stay. including picnic chairs outside, facing the ocean.
Russ communicated quickly and effectively, and was full of great recommendation about activities and dining opportunities in the area.
i would recommend this stay, and Russ as a host, and I can't wait to book my next trip.
This is my second year in a row renting Russ' RV on Avila Beach. The pics don't lie! Great experience "glamping" with the family and would highly recommend doing it again.
Ever since I watched Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon, I always wanted to try RV camping on a beach. Being a first timer, I was unfamiliar with RV camping, and especially the logistics around getting a RV camp space reservation, etc. Cheryl & Russ handheld me through the entire process and made it completely turn key for us. We arrived to a luxurious, clean RV, completely set up with bikes, BBQ, chairs, table, etc and Russ walked us through everything. We saw dolphins and sea otters everyday in the morning and evenings just 10 yards from the beach! My daughter also loved the tide pools around the beach as well and got took her first surfing lessons. Grilled fresh fish everyday from the seafood market just down the road. We had such a great time we extended our stay an extra night! Avila Beach area is also a great family town and we would highly recommend doing the RV beach camping on the central coast. We're so excited about going back again!

About the Host, Russ & Cheryl
My wife and I are both from California and have lived in San Luis Obispo since '91 raising our two boys. Both are out of college, working, and paying taxes. Hoorah, and yes it's an empty nest. We both come from the service industry, where we met in the early 80's. We love the "SLO Life" and love hosting guests; friends, family, or whomever we can get to visit. We enjoy working, oddly enough so we're both involved in several businesses, including a recent start up. When we're not doing that we enjoy food, wine, travel, sports, hiking, biking, golfing, camping and other outdoor activities. We especially love to entertain and meet new people so with the kids gone, Airbnb makes a lot of sense for us.
As a host, we aim to provide the best experience possible. You will have a very clean and comfortable room, privacy and security, local information, easy come and go, and just the right amount of conversation.
