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.  Our happiest campers are those who prefer closeness with nature over a lot of amenities.  This primitive camp site offers plenty of privacy, wildlife viewing and room to roam while still being a short drive to many amenities and attractions in the Central Coast.  Site #3 is located in it's own private oak grove which is accessed by a hilly gravel road, and is best suited for tents and smaller vans and truck campers.  There is an open-air commode, a large picnic table, a propane fire pit all year and a seasonal wood fire ring which is open ONLY during the wet/green time of year--typically late November through April.  The site can accommodate up to three vans/cars plus three tents.  Although the road is rough, a two-wheel drive vehicle can make it--I drive my minivan up it all the time, and we've had many a Prius make the trip! We do NOT recommend taller (over 10 ft) campers, or RVs/5th-wheels of any size because of the overhead clearance and narrow road.  PLEASE NOTE:  oak forest on the Central Coast of CA has poison oak! Although we clear it back from the site and trails, it is native and loves to grow in the shade of the oaks.

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.

Lori’s property was beautiful and private. My family enjoyed our stay very much. We were able to camp with our small (19 ft) trailer, however, please listen to Lori’s warnings! It was a very tight squeeze and difficult to navigate the unimproved section of the road without 4WD. The site offers gorgeous views of nature and a short, private trail to go up or down the mountain and view nature. We had plenty of space to spread out and the site is incredibly private. Our only visitors were the deer and wild turkeys. There is a lot of poison oak, as the site is nestled under beautiful, old oaks. Lori has done a great job clearing it from all the site areas and on the trails, but be prepared to keep little ones and pets close to avoid it. The site is an easy drive to great hiking and mountain biking, beaches, and lots to do. We found it perfect for getting away from everything and just relaxing!

I used site 3 and it was wonderful and secluded. The forest surrounding was beautiful and if into scary stories around a camp fire, also give a semblance of creepiness at night.

Lots of poison oak. But the main area is cleared fairly well. They have a built in gas pit but I did not use. The area has a couple trails I saw going in but did not go on them.

Speaking of going in, this is in the back of someone's property, the roads are bumpy and unpaved. There is a steep hill that is paved but the rest is unpaved once you get to the hosts property. Some cars may have issues traversing this.

One surprise was the wild turkeys and filed through are camp. It was cool and they left us alone. In case you are bringing pets, you may want to mindful of this.

Wagmore is an awesome experience and well worth the money. If you don't want to battle the state camps near Morrow Bay I highly recommend using this camp instead. It is close enough to Morrow Bay as it take roughly 20 minutes or less to get there.

Lori is a kind host and makes it stressful time of finding camps with no stress at all. The bonus is, not being a state camp, you can pack, and leave the site without too much worry someone will mess with your stuff.

The tent pad fits a 5 person tent :)
