Experience an “off road” adventure you will not forget by visiting the Oceano Dunes Visitor Center. Navigate this state-of-the-art center and engage in the hands-on exhibits of native dune and lagoon plant and animal species, Pismo clams, off-highway vehicles, and cultural history. Take an historical tour with a deeper look at the Chumash and the unique individuals called the Dunites. End your visit with a short stroll behind the center for a view of the fresh-water lagoon and all its natural inhabitants. This is a must stop if camping in the park or before venturing off to the coastal playground of the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA).
