One of the most sought after camping destinations on the central coast has to be Pismo Coast Village, a shareholder owned property with a prime beach location on the Central Coast of California.

With a long list of amenities, well kept campsites, and a location boasting great weather year round, this is atop most RV camper’s bucket lists.

When it comes to family RV camping, there probably isn’t another RV Park on the Central Coast that compares. The recreation department offers kids programs that run all week long during summer months and weekends during off peak times.

A heated pool, arcade, bike rentals, mini-putt golf course, basketball, ping pong, restaurant/grill and many other amenities will keep everyone in the family happy during your vacation or weekend getaway.

Want to store your RV and have it delivered and set up at your campsite? This service is popular among owners and visitors alike. For around $50 per month PCV will store your RV, and setup at your campsite is around $60. RV set up

Pismo Coast Village also allows RV rentals from local owners on RVPlusYou and other rental companies to be delivered and set up at your campsite. So joining friends and family for a weekend getaway or a long vacation is a convenient and inexpensive option for everyone.

Camping is one of those family activities that creates lasting memories, especially for kids. Being able to experience the outdoors on a camping trip in the comfort of an RV at a location such as Pismo Coast Village really is a treat, one that comes highly recommended.

Stay on a Farm, Ranch, or Winery. Possible?

I found a great site the other day while searching for “unique properties” for our customers. Had to share it, even though not all of these locations will accommodate an RV.

We’re always on the lookout for cool spots where we can match up location owner, RV owner, and renter for a delivered and set up RV. Wouldn’t that be cool if you could check in on a Friday, and by Saturday morning you and your kids are milking a cow? After a hearty lunch, you’re harvesting radishes and then that evening you and your family are star gazing from an open alfalfa field.

Here’s a great example for a unique weekend getaway, and it won’t break the bank either: Edna Valley Ranch.

U. S. Farm Stay Association (aka Farm Stay U.S.) founder Scottie Jones and her husband Greg raise grass-fed lamb at Leaping Lamb Farm in the green hills of Oregon’s Coast Range.  Since 2006 they have also operated a thriving farm stay, where they’ve hosted guests from near and far.

Lamb picThe idea behind Farm Stay is that by staying at one of these small family farms or wineries, you help support this shrinking national treasure. Most of these locations are working properties; vegetable farms, ranches, wineries, etc. Most have accommodations, as in B&B, and some will allow you to park your RV on their property.

We know the small family farm used to be where most of our food was produced. Now, as Scottie points out, 90% of our food is produced by large farming corporations gobbling up land and ushering in the decline of the family farm.

The story of Farm Stays and how it all started is a great counterbalance to what is happening with our food supply and one very creative strategy that some small farms are using to hold on.

Using technology in the new peer to peer, “Shared Economy”, Scottie and her pals are thinking outside the box. I encourage you to take a look and support their work.
