We tried to go to Morsky Oko in August but even at 9am, the police were stopping cars driving up and getting them to park at the bottom of the hill. There were so many cars and coaches we gave up and decided to drive 40 minutes to Dolina koscieliska on the other side of Zakopane - a very pleasant cross country drive.
This has plenty of parking - small charge.
You can take a horse drawn cart up the hill - I think they charge a lot for english tourists but I am sure you can barter for it. The ride was worth it - 6 km up hill. Alternatively, you could get the cart down only or both ways.
We then walked further up 40 minutes to a cafe/rest area which was good.
Then 2 hour walk back down.
Beautiful scenery and very high mountains with a river running all the way.
There are signs about bears but we certainly did not see any.
There are various paths and one is to some caves which we did not do but the pictures looked very good so worth doing that if you have time.
There are good paths so no walking boots required but good sensible shoes - trainers etc. There were families with small children and older relatives doing the walk.
Plenty of porta loos on path and also toilets at the cafe.
