“It's What Morro Bay is All About”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Morro Bay is very interesting. If you want to experience the area to the max, make sure you spend some time at the State Park.

“Beautiful state park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I liked the state park much better before they cut a lot of the large trees and revamped it and geared for the very large RVs. They have gone too commercial and lost the sense of camping. Observe the speed limit, otherwise you will get a ticket.

“Lovely spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

CA State Parks have made excellent use of this small bit of property. There's room to park with numerous benches from which to view the harbor activity and a short walk part way around The Rock to see it up close. We spent most of a morning in the warm sun, watching birds, Sea Otters and those of our species participating in numerous water activities. After a while we drove to the wharf and bought take-away lunch back to our bench for more good watching. It made for a lovely day and perfect memory.

“Lovely Campgrounds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Wonderful place, lots of trees and views. Many walking trails, very close to the town. Near a cute harbor resturant and kyak rental. Each site has a tale and bench seats plus a fire ring. Free showers. It has many hook-up sites, water and elec only, (reservation are recommended year around). Sites without hook-ups have more space, and water is close by. The non-hookup sites are readily available after Sept 15, and before May 15, otherwise reserve ahead. The Museum of Natural History is close by, and free for camping guests.
