Who doesn't love camping in Morro Bay? Two things; 1) make friends with your neighbors if your up to it. We did and had such a great time spending our trip with them! 2) make sure to make time to check out downtown Morro Bay, you could walk away with some cool treasures from the local thrift store or play human chess.

Booked on a busy holiday weekend because othering neighboring campgrounds were fully booked. I got a central spot which was basically two large parallel parking spots with a grass strip in between and a picnic table. When we arrived our site was being used for some other camper’s lawn games—they did continue their lawn games and horrible loud music to the next site over since it was not yet occupied. Tons of rednecks that weekend—their dogs running around off-leash, lots of beer drinking. We lasted an hour and skedaddled to take our chances finding another campsite on New Year’s weekend. May be nice during the week, dunno, but wouldn’t recommend on a holiday weekend or one of the center spots.

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.
