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

We loved this beach....so many sand dollars along the shore. Also, it looked like a dog friend beach...many people let there pups run and play along this beach.

Has a rookery for Pelicans and cormorants but no signage to tell visitors where it is. One kind of drive right through it without realizing that it's a state park.

During our very long and pleasant walk from La Serena Inn, we went past the peaceful paths along the water, past the rookery, and through the camp grounds. It is a nicely equipped park, full of bathrooms, barbeques, and roomy spaces for RV's. There is a warning to watch your generators at night as someone is removing them (theft). So,... More

The setting across from the back bay, under a canopy of eucalyptus and pines, makes the park extra enticing. The Morro Bay public golf course is immediately adjacent, while directly across from the entry is a small marina, the delightful Bayside Cafe--lunch and dinner. And there are excellent walking trails that skirt along the bay front, as well as meandering... More

We drove up through the golf course to Black Hill. What a great view! You can see the whole estuary and bay, and miles and miles along the coast in both directions. Even if you just drive up the hill to the parking lot, you can get a good view from there. The drive is short - it only takes... More
