Just off scenic Highway 1, WagMore is a 63 acre property, 10 minutes from the quaint harbor town of Morro Bay and 15 minutes from Montana de Oro.  WagMore offers several primitive sites scattered throughout oak covered hills and grassland giving access to hiking, wildlife and scenery. The terrain and road are best suited for tents, and smaller vans and campers, but Site #1 can accommodate larger vans/campers and small RV's/trailers. There are several sites right off the road; or campers can park and hike in and pitch a tent on a grassy field or clearing. The road to the sites is a bit rough, but a two-wheel drive vehicle can make it--I drive my minivan up it all the time, and we've had a multitude of Prius' make the trip! We do NOT recommend large RVs or 5th-wheels of any size because of the overhead clearance and narrow road. 

In Morro Bay just up the highway, visitors can enjoy beaches, fishing, boating, whale watching, surfing and SUP. Nearby Montana de Oro offers fantastic mountain biking and hiking. Also, the southern part of Big Sur is day tripping distance up Highway 1 from the camp where visitors will find spectacular scenery and hiking.

This property is a blast! Not only is it fun to pick a site amongst the oak trees, it is close to so many fun towns, the ocean & has a great hiking trail on the property! We began our trip cruising on the dirt roads and taking in the beautiful oak trees. Once we found the best spot, up a hill and amongst a clearing, we set up our tent & van & got cooking! The best part was we did not a see a person the whole day. You are not allowed to have a fire on the property, but playing cards by lantern light was such a satisfying experience. The hike to the ocean view on the property is well worth the simple trek! The fog was just clearing and the ocean was so close we had to go check it out once our campsite was packed up. The stillness amongst the trees made this a great campsite! I can't wait to go again as a weekend getaway!

The drive up the dirt road to the campsites was a little harrowing at times but you should be able to make it with any car. There are two places you'd want to camp, by the water station or where the old fire pit used to be. Not super flat but you can find places to pitch a tent, or set up a hammock (lots of trees). Lori gave us directions for a hike beyond the dirt road and the views are pretty great. Very close day drive to Morro bay and Montaña de Oro. It's very primitive camping, but for the price and to have so much land to yourself and your friends is what it's all about.

Nice little tuck away spot. Even though there weren't any other groups around, there wasn't any concern of animals and such (trust me, I watched for them). The road was a little hard to ford on my Honda Civic so I camped at the closest camp site, but that was already a very nice spot. Upon exploring further, there is a nice group spot with firewood and a fire ring. The hiking is short but very quiet and peaceful. Lori was very responsive when I reached out to her for help.

Lori was lovely and gave a great description of how to get to her property. Camp WagMore is a heavily forested hillside with some open fields for pitching a tent and a few other flat patches tucked between trees. The land is essentially untouched, so be ready for a rough and rugged camping adventure in the ungroomed wilderness!

If you're planning on sliding through SLO or Morro Bay and need a spot to rest your head, WagMore might be for you. While it's not huge on amenities, it's super affordable and ideal for van camping or a tent setup. As an added bonus, you can do a sizable hike on the property without seeing anyone besides the beautiful people you are choosing to camp with. My interactions with Lori were minimal, but she is super quick to respond to any questions you have and wants to make your stay as smooth as possible.

Peaceful getaway just outside of downtown SLO. Very easy to get to, laid back and a nice "back country" alternative to the packed and always full campgrounds nearby. Highly recommend this spot for a night layover while driving the coast or for a fun weekend with friends.

My husband and I did a roadtrip from LA and we decided to spend a night at Camp WagMore.

+ Lori is a great host with fantastic communication. She provided ample information to make our stay enjoyable and was very easy to reach in case we needed everything
+ The property is easy to find, and there are lots of signage on the campgrounds to sites and water that were really helpful
+ The site has an AMAZING view of Hollister Peak and also views of the valley
+ Property was clean, large, and fun to explore
+ Great stargazing at night, beautiful sunsets, and love the sound of nature all around us. We fell asleep to an owl hooting. It doesn't get any better than that.
+ Just a 15 minute drive to Morro Bay which is a MUST VISIT when you're here. Plan a day trip to Morro Bay and enjoy the quaint little harbor town.

We really enjoyed the property and the spectacular views. There were a few other hipcampers on other sites, but the property was huge and we felt completely remote. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a place to camp :)

Note: Part of the road to the private party is on unpaved dirt roads and there are some steep areas, but it was not a huge issue with our Escape Campervan. Just something to take into consideration when booking.
