A bit of history: “Tyron’s Camp” (a café, auto camp, and tent campground) opened during the 1920s along the beach and inland at Moro Canyon. In the late 1950s, the complex evolved into a seasonal trailer destination known as “El Morro Beach Trailer Park.” Later, about 300 permanent manufactured homes replaced seasonal beach trailers in this area. After tenants’ leases expired in 2005, the trailers were removed to develop the Moro Campground and day-use facility. Moro Campground has 57 coastal terrace sites for both tents and RVs. It’s located along some bluffs right next to the Moro Canyon and Moro Creek, providing plenty of nearby recreation. There’s also a ton of parking, which is ever so convenient, and this huge campground is split into three loops with about 20 sites each: Coyote Run, Sage Loop, and Dolphin Circle. Each have restrooms, coin showers and several accessible sites.

Great views of the ocean. You are close to other campers but there are large bushes in between the sites that will hide you from view. Didn't ever feel crowded. Bathrooms were clean and close to all the sites. Short walk to the beach and great spot to view the sunset! Will definitely come back!

Newer campground that sits above Hwy 101 across from the beach. Great views. The entire campground is terraced so you really don't have a bad seat. Beach access with kids and stuff requires driving down to the lower lot and parking down there and walking thru a tunnel to get to the beach. Not a problem, but it's not like you can just stroll down to the beach with whole crew. Clean bathrooms and some good hiking east of the park. Also about a mile from Crystal Cove with a good restaurant, The Shake Shack and some vintage cottages.

The cleanest campground I've ever been to. Easy access for RVs. Large sites with privacy. Tiered design means that every site has an ocean view. About a 10 minute walk to the beach.

A little hideaway from busy Pacific Coast Highway, so many trails that you can explore in the hills or go to the beach and hang out.
Not many people know about the cute vintage crystal cove beach cottages or the restaurant/bar (The beachcomber) that is hidden below PCH on the sand, but it is definitely worth the sunset views!

I really loved camping here! Not only are there amazing views of the ocean, but you have a nice walk down to the beach and there are also great hiking and biking trails for miles around the campground. I would highly recommend staying here, but just make sure you get a camp spot in Dolphin Circle (in the 50s) so that you have a better view of the ocean!

This was a great campground. The stadium layout provide amazing views for each spacious site. The overgrown shrubs gave each site a private feel. Bathrooms were well maintained and the camp hosts were very helpful.

Pros: Beautiful, quiet and a close walk to what felt like a private beach.

Cons: we had plans to ride our bikes since we were car camping but the PCH made access via bike very difficult and not safe while pulling our Burley. There were also lots of ants.

This was our first tent camping experience as a family. We went for one night in August 2017. It was so beautiful and the view of the ocean from our tent was magical. The facilities were clean and close by. We enjoyed walking along the bluff trail in the evening, and going to the beach during the day. The only negative was that around 11pm, a group pulled into the site next to us and proceeded to celebrate a birthday until 3-4am. We asked them to lower their voices, but I think the sites are so close that it still made it difficult for me to sleep. Next time, if this were to happen, I'd seek out the camp host to help enforce quiet hours.

Spent a last minute September weekend here and it was just what we needed. Quiet, peaceful, with a beautiful view. The facilities were well maintained, with hot showers and separate bathrooms. I can't wait to go back!
