Sunset

We drove out to the park to see the last glimmer of the sunset. The view was amazing! Quiet and so peaceful.

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

It was my favorite stop while visiting Morro Bay. We stopped at a little stretch of beach for lunch. It was quiet and easy to get in the water. Then, we headed out to the Museum of Natural History. We found a little trail leading to the top of a rock and there enjoyed beautiful views of the bay. The... More

Estuary, tidal basins and canals, eucalyptus woods and dunes. A wide variety of flora and fauna available all year long. Different seasons have different offerings. Take your time and stroll slowly so you don't miss anything!

Great campsite for both tenting and trailer/RVs. RV sites have water and both 20 and 30 amp hookups. Bathrooms were clean. Sanitary dump station on site also a plus. We love the park, and have been coming here for generations. Lots of trails for hiking. Kayak rentals right across the road... And, bring your golf clubs!

This is fun car camping where you have the best of both worlds (you are in the woods and on the water). There are bathrooms and showers (pay with quarters), fire pits and picnic tables at each site. There are kayaks to rent, there is a great restaurant in walking distance and there is a trolley that runs daily that... More

I have loved this park for many years. Sitting on the edge of an estuary as well as a corner of the Pacific, it is the perfect spot to spend enjoying the California coast. Some of the spots set aside for RV's also have water and electric hookups. These typically must be booked way in advance. We tried two months... More

Ocean views and lots of shade trees. It had hot showers and the sites are fairly big. We take our family here often. Shops and restaurants aren't far away and a quick walk will take you to water. There's plenty of ocean wildlife and it is very cozy.

Morro Bay is one of my favorite places along the Western Coastline. There is a quaint old town area, lots of places to choose from for food and tourists love it here. State Park road has historical features along the way, visitor center/museum, docks/marine life and beauty.
