Q: Does Cayucos have a long-term parking garage or lot?
A: The Cayucos Chamber of Commerce does not manage or enforce parking in town. Within the town of Cayucos, parking is all short-term and any vehicle left longer than 72 hours may be ticketed and town. Refer to posted hours. You may be able to find long-term parking in nearby cities, such as San Luis Obispo, Atascadero, or Paso Robles.
Q: Can I have a bonfire on the beach?
A: Bonfires are not permitted anywhere south of the pier. For information on bonfire restrictions north of the pier, contact SLO County Parks https://slocountyparks.com/day-use-parks/cayucos-beach/.
Q: Are dogs permitted on Cayucos beaches?
A: Yes, dogs are permitted and leash laws apply. Help us keep Cayucos beaches free of pet waste by cleaning up after your pet. Dog waste bags are provided at public beach entrances, courtesy of the Lioness Club “Mutt Mitts” program. Learn more at http://cayucoslioness.org/projects.
Q: What regulations apply to vendors setting up in town during events?
A: The Chamber organizes several events in town. In doing so, we obtain permits from the county, which allow us to place vendors on our public roads. There are also events (such as the Rock to Pier Run, etc.) which are organized by unaffiliated groups. No vendor may operate any temporary booth outside of permitted boundaries of any event. You may direct questions to SLO County or contact Chamber board member Brendan Fritzsche using the form on this page.
