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

This is my most favorite place to camp! I only wish it wasn't so hard to get reservations, especially for sites with hook-ups... they need more! I love having the marina nearby, the natural history museum and the Bayside Cafe - all within walking distance of the campground!

I almost wanted to do 2 separate reviews for Morro Bay State Park. So, we'll start with the park itself: Definitely visit the park and hike the trail up past the golf course which overlooks the bay and Morro Rock. It was beautiful & well-maintained. Definitely check out the Bird Sanctuary along the bay... I have never seen SO many... More

This is a beautiful beach. It is so long and great for walking. You can walk from Morro Rock all the way to Cayucos. Part of the beach is a bird sanctuary so no dogs are allowed. Because it is so long you never get the sense that is it crowded because there is so much space for everyone.

We did not stay there but visited. It seemed very nice for camping and had good grounds. Fun to sit by the campfire.

This is the loudest/ most over populated campground I have ever been in The entry is $35 fee and there are over 140 spots taking up less than an acre of land if your tent camping you have generators blasting in your dear all night. Then about 630 in the morning the Rangers start patrolling. It's a lot like prison,... More
