Then this is the bay for you. My girlfriend and I rented a campervan from Lost Campervans and rode up the coast from LA. We stayed our second night here and it was freakin' fantastic. Although the park's rules are no parking or camping between 2am to 6am, the authorities were pretty lenient and nobody bothered us while we slept... More

Nice hiking up to the top of Black Hill and also around the bay using the walkway around the marina. Not big, but nice views and usually good weather. The little restaurant in the Marina, Bayside, is popular with the locals. Pricey, but quite good. Kayaks and rentals available too.

This campground is not roughing it. It has showers and nice bathrooms. There is also a trolly that runs thru the summer and for a minimal fee you can ride it to and from camp to the embarcadero. Free museum to campers across the street as well as a nice little cafe for lunch.

Beautiful park with nice trails and incredible birdlife. Has a rookery in it for blue herons and the like. The best part is you can pull right up to the shoreline and load in your kayak. Has a museum which we did not have time to check out but it did have lots of visitors. We will return next time... More

I've camped here on previous visits to Morro Bay and always enjoyed it. But one night the fog rolled in so thick that we thought it was raining out. True story. We had been sitting outside talking when it happened and quickly took refuge in our tent. It was a fun experience. Really!

This is a great little park with lots of big trees. The campground has paved roads throughout with gravel sites, water and electric hook ups, no sewer. The Museum of Natural History is across the street.

We have visited Morro Bay State Park a number of times. Its in a very pretty area of Morro Bay and is by a lagoon. For those who are golfers, there is also a golf course. The tree lined area makes it a nice place to camp. There are a number of trails in the park such as the Elfin... More
