There will soon be more camping options available in Avila Beach.

On Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 1:30 pm there will be a groundbreaking ceremony for the Harbor Terrace Project.

Harbor Terrace has been in the works for years but in early 2018 it got the green light.

Currently, Port San Luis is home to five areas of RV camping. The new development, set to go up next to the entrance of Diablo Canyon Power Plant, will expand that.

The Harbor District purchased the majority of the property in 1977.

Back in 2018, the district entered into a 50-year agreement with company, Red Tail Acquisitions that will develop and manage the site.

The 32-acre site will have 60 RV pads/sites, 55 walk-in and drive-in tent camping sites, and 51 RV cabins. There will also be a lodge, a swimming pool, restaurant/cafe, recreation facilities, and other visitor amenities.

During an interview with KSBY in 2018, the Harbor District said the goal is to generate at least $600,000 a year from the new development, which is what the Harbor District currently makes from RV camping.
