Do not know if it was because of the drought, but no plants to separate campsites. Planned on staying 5 nights, but left to stay in a hotel right after seeing the campsite. Only green in the park is the golf course.

I have only stayed at this campground as a large group. We have stayed in the group sites, and individual sites next to each other. Both are nice. This campground is walking distance to lots of wonderful hikes, exploring for young children, and trolley/driving routes to the city. However, the camp sites tend to be very close to each other,...

How can you beat Morro Bay? Laid back and small town. No big crowds (I don't go on holiday weekends so can't attest to that). We love the towns relaxed style.

Morro Bay State Park is absolutely beautiful. It is full of various trees. The bay itself offers opportunities for kayaking, boating, bird watching, and fun in the dunes.

Beautiful 4 mile round trip hike with stunning views of the coastline. While everyone else was fighting the wind on the shore, we enjoyed solitude on high. Excellent hike.

We went with friends RVing here and loved it. The grounds were lovely. Bathrooms clean, though not fancy. It's quiet and yet close enough to the town that we biked to it. Walking works too; but it is a few miles, I imagine. We come here at least once a year and really love the area.

Reserve early for sites with water and electricity for RVs. Impacted in summer months--plan ahead! Museum, golf course and beach entertain all ages. Close to shopping and restaurants.

Large and full of people enjoying the outdoors. Wonderful to see kids playing outside without all the electronic gadgetry.
