Oceano Dunes Vehicular Recreation Area
With two entrances, one at Pier Ave in Oceano and the other at the end of Grand Ave. in Grover Beach. For small fee vehicles can drive right onto the beach a cruise down the shoreline. At the dunes there is beach camping and an off-road highway for ATVs. Dogs can walk, horses can run and people can even build bonfires on these beaches, nestled between Pismo Beach and the protected Oceano Sand Dunes. There is beach camping but it’s quite popular and you have to plan ahead. The dunes have a history all their own from the clam shells left by the Chumash Indians that used to inhabit the area to movie history as the location of where Jack was trapped in Davy Jones.
