    Directions to Camp

    From the north: Take the first San Luis Obispo exit off 101 onto Monterey, travel south into town a few blocks to Johnson, turn left and travel to the end of Johnson, then turn left onto Orcutt. Continue for about a mile until you reach a stop sign. Turn left and continue on Orcutt for approximately ten more miles until it dead ends at Lopez Dr. Turn left on Lopez Drive.

    From the south: Take the Lopez Lake/Grand Ave Exit in Arroyo Grande. Turn right (east) and follow signs to the lake.

    From Lopez Lake Drive: Follow Lopez Drive over the dam and along the lake about 2.5 miles. Turn right onto High Mountain Road, which is just beyond the cement bridge on the east side of the lake. After about half a mile, take the left fork onto Upper Lopez Canyon Road toward “Camp French”. Follow the paved road for 7 miles to Lopez Canyon Conference Center, about 3 miles past Camp French.
