There are restrooms with running water but no showers. There are a general store, gas station, motel with restaurant and bar, and shops located nearby.
Santa Lucia is a beautiful, convenient and affordable location. Whatever your group are planning--a quiet retreat, a community event or a week of family or teen camping. Just picture your group making a fire at twilight as they welcome the starry evening with stories told by the firelight. Many families have fond memories of carefree times spent at Santa Lucia.
