This was our first trip to Lope Lake since I was a small kid, 35+ years. It was a great campground. Compared to Pismo Coast Village the sites were huge, but not as large as many state parks. There are lots of Full Hook-up sites, and the price was very reasonable. There is lots of wildlife around Lopez; we saw deer, turkey's, eagles, hawks, raccoons, skunks to name a few. Although it was New Years and the CG was full it was very quite and peaceful. A ropes course with Zip-lines just opened last month -- that was quite fun, even the kids as small as 5 years old could participate on some of it.
It was only about 10 min to the AG village and 15 min to the beach so we still spent a day at the beach with the kids and the moms took an afternoon off to go explore the village and do a little wine tasting.
You should take a drive up there and check it out.
