Monarch Butterfly Grove, Pismo Beach Reviews

  • What a great place to take your kids to show them monarch butterflies. You have to go there when they are nesting for the winter and you may see as many as a hundred thousand monarchs in the trees in this little Park. They are open specific hours so check the website to find out when they're open. There is a gift shop that sells related items to the monarchs. My wife and I have been going there for years and love sitting and watching the butterflies flit around. Parking is a little tough especially on weekends but during the week it's not so bad

  • Beautiful experience. Well staffed with friendly volunteers. The day we visited there were approximately 15,000 butterflies. They had spotting scopes set up so visitors could see close ups of the lovely creatures. I was able to get gorgeous photos on my camera. NO COST TO PARK or VISIT. Where can you go for free??? Will visit again and highly recommend to friends as a nice quiet and peaceful place to visit.

  • A wonderful stop in an eucalyptus grove where thousands of monarch butterflies nest. This is an easy stroll. There are docents to answer all your questions. It is beautiful. There is free parking. the Monarch butterfly Grove is FREE. What an amazing joy! During daytime and good weather there are telescopes to see the clusters of gold, rust and brown flutter around. You must stop here.

  • Tips: - Nov-Feb is the best time with the most butterflies - There are picnic tables so you can eat here We went here until expecting some sort of indoor butterfly house but it was just an outdoor park with many butterflies. We saw quite a few hummingbirds and lizards sunning on the fences as well. You could probably spend around an hour or so comfortably.

  • A beautiful place to enjoy butterflies, flowers, and trees. The walking trails and informational signs throughout are very interesting, and the beach is only a very short walk away from the preserve. Free to visit, calming and refreshing once you are there.
