Very well maintained Park. The parking spaces for trailers and motor homes are roomy and not close together. There are trees and lovely fire pits for each space and picnic tables. The water is across the street with kayaking, a museum and the town 1 mi away.

The campground at Morro Beach State Park is wonderful. It is divided into areas of longer pull-throughs with full hook-ups and smaller spaces off with none, yet you all feel you're there together. The shade and ambience provided by the eucalyptus trees is extraordinary. Each space is provided with a picnic table and fire pit, and some come with stone... More

So beautiful, wonderful wildlife habitat. Miles and miles of protected, peaceful tranquility, the whole area is well kept, clean, real feeling of nature and how it should be when it is totally respected.

I almost hate to write a great review on Morro Bay because I feel like it's still a hidden gem that I don't want more people to know about. This beach is always quiet when I go. I've never seen it filled with sunbathers and teenagers making lots of noise. There are usually surfers because there are some pretty good... More

Campground open and not so private after refurbishment but good. Central location to great places, nice little harbor / across from Los Osos Elfin Forest http://www.elfin-forest.org/ / down the hill from Morro Bay Museum of Natural History with striking views http://www.ccnha.org/morrobay/ . Great little cafe at harbor is now huge and crowded without the original fresh fish sandwiches. State park... More

Camping, hiking, golf and relaxation in the midst of an eucalyptus grove next to beautiful Morro Bay with beautiful views of the San Luis Obispo County hills that stay green most of the year...who knew paradise smelled like eucalyptus?!? This place is kid and pet friendly, just steps away from the small boat docks where one can rent a kayak... More

It was a nice park with lots of squirrels roaming around which I enjoyed because we do not have them in australia. Morro Rock is big and quite impressive. There is a huge ugly power plant on the beach front which is disappointing but we still loved Morro Bay. It was a pretty place and had a lovely relaxed vibe.... More

We stayed here for 1 night with the camp being very scenic & pretty, amongst the woods & just across from the small marina & bayside cafe (extremely worth a visit for lunch, dinner or both). The pitch we had, included water & electric hook up & a concrete picnic table/bench & a fire pit & BBQ. The pitch was... More

Very nice park, a 3/4 mile hike to Black Hills is a must. Beautiful golf course, interesting museum.

It's s very cool park with a huge rock. We found lots of intact sand dollars. Pretty windy on the northern side but there's a little area on the southern side that's nice. You have to wonder how the city allowed the power plant so close to park though
