The rock sticking out of the ocean

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.

What a gorgeous park! The views are incredible, the water is "cool" but so beautiful! Lots of bike ways and walking areas. Very dog friendly too!

Camping at Morro Bay State park is the bomb. SOOOO many things to do. See the dunes, see the otters, see the sea lions, see the herons. Go into town and shop and eat. Not enough time to do it all

There are spots... More

This is not at all what I consider camping, it is like they have turned 1 campsite into 4, you are basically "group" camping with strangers! Not to mention the noise level, it is very loud, people are not considerate. If you stay here you will not have any privacy, we have site #74. Maybe if you book on the... More
