OCEANO (PISMO) DUNES SET TO REOPEN
According to the Friends of Oceano Dunes, the SVRA is entering Phase II of their reopening plan on Friday February 19th.
The group has been working non stop behind the scenes with State Parks, OHMVR Division and many others for the past year. It’s days like today where we see that hard work pay off. Much appreciation to State Parks Director Armondo Quintero, OHMVR Deputy Director Sarah Miggins and the entire OHV Division. Although we are not getting a complete reopening as we had wished this is a good start towards our ultimate goal.
Lets be good stewards of the land as usual and help keep this park from ever closing again.
Dunes set to reopen
Below is a breakdown of phase II of the three-phased reopening plan for both park units, effective Friday, February 19:
Day Use Hours: 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
Limited Vehicle Access:
“Street legal” vehicles, such as jeeps and trucks.
“Green sticker” off-highway vehicles.
As the State of California continues to protect Californians from the COVID-19 pandemic and for the protection of natural resources, State Parks is limiting the daily allowed number of “street legal” vehicles to 1,000 per day and “Green Sticker” OHV to 1,000 per day — for both park units. While State Parks does not anticipate this operational change to impact visitation since this is considered the off-season, there may be instances where the maximum allowance of vehicles will be met, and no further vehicles will be allowed to enter the beach due to the temporary capacity requirement.
Oceano Dunes SVRA: A total of 100 campsites will be available.
Pismo SB: The North Beach Campground is temporarily closed due to recent storm impacts. Campsites for the developed Oceano Campground within Pismo SB are available for booking.
Reservations are required for both park units and must be made at least two days (48 hours) prior to arrival on ReserveCalifornia.com.
OHV Rental Concessions: These services will continue to be temporarily closed.
