San Simeon State Park Camping

San Simeon State Park
San Simeon State Park is the most affordable place to stay near Hearst Castle. During the summer reservations are a good idea. From October 1st through the middle of March campsites are first come first serve. There is a self pay system where you mark your camping spot number on an envelope and deposit it in a box along with the fee. There are two campgrounds here San Simeon Creek Campground and Washburn Primitive Campground. If your on a budget camping is a great way to cut down on expenses. However if you don't have your own RV staying at a hotel might end up being cheaper when you add in the cost of gas plus your rental fees on the RV. Here is a list of places to camp along the California central coast San Simeon State Park is located 35 miles north of San Luis Obispo on Highway 1, and 5 miles south of the Hearst San Simeon State Historical Monument Visitor Center. The community of Cambria is located 2 miles to the South and offers gas stations and grocery stores. close to: San Simeon
