Enjoyed the beauty of this park. Visited on a holiday weekend and it was crowded but still very enjoyable. Wish we had spent more time there (in hindsight). A "don't miss this" location!

This area really has it all: family friendly beach, dog beach, places for running/jogging, and swimming. Some people were snorkeling too. Lots of lively sea otters, some sea lions, hundreds of different types of birds. Also, very close to restaurants and shopping. Highly recommend!

Did not love this campground. We were in site 46 which had a not so scenic view of the bathroom. The sites are very close together. Seems to be no enforcement of how many campers can stay in a single site. We had a church group camping across from us and they literally had 4 sites, with 16+ people crammed... More

We had a Great time at this park. Yes it did get crowded, but if you can stay out of the center of the loops, didn't feel like it. Unless you are doing a family Reunion, which a lot of folks were. The location does not get better. You have to check out the Embarcadero. We had the Best Fish... More

Loved looking at the boats docked at the park. There is also a lovely little restaurant there. Looks like a great campground too

a great place to walk and enjoy the sounds of surf and birds, children playing in the sand and water. A good place to spend the day.

Early morning walk was relaxing, quiet. Time to think without the business of most beaches. Easy parking, cool campgrounds.

We rode bicycles to the Natural History Museum. It was a nice ride that went along side the bird sanctuary and coastline.

My family and I chose to return to Morro Bay(where we use to live) to celebrate the 4th of July. However, this would be our first and last time camping at this campground. The campground spots are extremely close to each other. The only thing that saved us, was that we were camping with 2 other families so we were... More
