About Morro Strand State Beach

Morro Strand State Beach often gets overshadowed by its neighbor, Morro Bay...though those who have been there would gladly tell you the park has its own charm. Morro Strand gives visitors a one-of-a-kind view of Morro Rock, an old underwater volcano. The park also has 3 miles of pristine, sandy beaches accompanied by great surf. For beach bums that want a little slice of the coast to call their own, this park is a great spot to get some swimming, surfing, kiting or windsurfing in.

The water here is chilly! If you plan on going in, we’d recommend rocking a wetsuit for the day.

You can easily get back and forth between Morro Strand and Morro Bay via trolley that comes on the hour ($1.25)

This is a great beach for beach combing – you could easily get rich in sand dollars!

This is a great campground when not crowded. You have a huge beach nearby, and lots of stuff to do on the central coast. Usually only a few sites taken midweek in winter months, but the weather might be better than the summer.

The best sites for tents or small RVs is along the west side. Great beach views. There are now site specific reservations. The central sites are basically parking spaces. Showers available at Morro Bay SP; save your camp stub. Can get kinda flooded in really big rain.
