Morro Bay State Park campground consists of 135 sites shaded by a mixed forest planted by the CCC in the 1930’s. This does not cause for much shade or privacy between sites, but what’s the fun in camping without making some new friends? The bathrooms and showers are consistently cleaned and stocked with warm water, while the proximity of the campgrounds to the golf course and marina are definitely a major plus. Parking is also close, so that’s not a worry, while the campground is also known to fill up on weekends. A definite advantage to the site is its proximity to the beach, a bonus that definitely outweighs all the sand you’ll be finding two weeks after you get back!

We had a surprisingly good time there. The campground doesn't offer anything special other than appreciable and cheap showers – a quarter dollar is enough – but this is a nice area. Check out the bay at sunset! You can rent kayaks at the marina, in front of the Bayside Café.

This was the first place I ever camped.

It's not very secluded at all, it's only a short 10 minute walk into town which isn't really my preference. The campsite itself is pretty nice. There are some nice hikes available and the air is nice and crisp in the mornings. The campsites themselves were kind of hard to distinguish between, can't really tell where one begins and the other ends, but that could've been a rookie mistake made by me.

Find a site where the turkey vultures don't roost - it can get ugly!

This is a great "traditional" campground that gives you access to surfing the rock and fishing in the harbor all by yourself. There's a lovely nature walk across from the campsite and close proximity to cafes about 10 minutes away by car or less.

Sites are tiny, so make sure you book a couple of spots if you are camping with more than two people. Sites are usually booked, so make sure to book in advance. Great location to the town, and marina!
