Money can't buy

Ahhh the ocean breeze and the view is spectacular. Surfers, swimmers and just watchers like us, enjoying the view the fresh air early in the morning, is something, money can't buy.

I LOVE going here with my grandson and our dogs. Easy to get to, the weather is almost always wonderful (though you do get fog in summer), and the place is just beautiful!

Hello fellow travelers I just returned from morro strand state beach, the weather was wonderful and the camp sites are great. But if you really want to have a great time, go during the week day, you will have a great chance of finding a good spot.

Beautiful site! Lots of sand dollars on the beach. Waves were great to swim in and boogie board on. Beach was not crowded. The morning till 1pm or after 5pm till sunset were the best times on the beach before the winds picked up. Very relaxing.

No trip is complete without a walk on the beach. Nothing can remove stress better than a walk on the beach.

My wife and I stopped at this beach on our way up the Pacific Coast. It was beautiful and peaceful. There were very few people on the beach. It had great views of Morro Rock, and there were a ton of sand dollars and sea shells on the beach. Park just outside the fee station and it's easy access to... More

I just love to see how far I can walk along this beach! The views of incoming tide provide great photo opportunities, the tides bring in interesting sea trinkets to observe, and the people watching is great, too!

We've stayed in the state park a few times while on extended fishing trips out of Morro Bay. The amenities are few, but it's all made up with the beauty of this small, green and lush foliage in the park. Nice for families or even a get a way for couples.
