We had a fun hike to the top of Black Hill. We had 3 kids ages 2-8. Easy hike, great views. We wanted something more, and were told to head over to Montana De Oro Park just a short drive way.

This place is beautiful. Seriously. I can't believe I have never been here. I've lived in CA almost my entire life and have never had the chance to visit this place. It is gorgeous and breathtaking. My husband's family goes camping every single year and they usually choose different places every year. This year, they chose the campgrounds at Morro... More

a really nice park that is not crowded. Bit of a beach docks and a restaurant. Also a beautiful golf course.

Possibly the worst campground I've ever stayed in for tent camping. There is barely any foliage, coverage, or shrubbery, and the campsites are practically right on top of each other. All that separates you from your neighbor is [maybe] your car and about 5 ft of dirt. And the fire pits are FILTHY, with ash that's probably accumulated over years... More

We didn't stay in the park, but went there for the museum. While we were there, we hiked a few of the paths. Everything was beautiful and kept very clean (including the restrooms!).

I think it's a very interesting place to go to and when you see the rock sticking out of the ocean and then you look at the waves and from the Pacific Ocean.
