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 privacy, wildlife viewing and room to roam while still being a short drive to many amenities and attractions in the Central Coast. Camp WagMore (overflow) is part of the original Camp WagMore but is now listed separately to better describe the features of the site. Located up a bumpy gravel road, at the top of the property, the overflow site is best suited for tents and smaller vans and truck campers. There are no ammenities at this site but there is a water spigot back down the road. The site can accommodate up to two smaller vehicles plus a tent or one vans/camper. 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! Tall campers or RVs/5th-wheels of any size should not attempt access to the camp because of the overhead clearance and narrow road. Also, please note there are some overhead power lines pretty close to the site. 

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.

Was very, very happy with my recent stay at Wagmore - Lori was a super hostess after my van had some mechanical issues that delayed my intended arrival; she was both gracious and accommodating and her property boasts epically beautiful views. So glad I had a chance to spend a quiet night there (after several sleepless ones spent at the mechanics) I came at a foggy time of year and waited for the marine layer to lift enough to see the roads/views better before heading out. Was greeted in the morning by the largest flock of wild turkeys I have ever seen! Such a treasure of a spot - I look forward to returning one day!

WagMore was a really great place to stay! Lori has excellent communication and always replied quickly. The property is in a perfect central location for area activities and our overflow site had a beautiful view of the peak. As a bonus, most of the property's dirt road was newly graded and extremely smooth.

Both the site and host were amazing. I arrived in the area after the sun had set with plans of staying at first come first serve campground only to find out it was at capacity. I really didn't want to stay at a hotel so I messaged Lori to see if by any chance there was an open spot for the night. Lori quickly responded letting me know that she had an overflow spot available. When I arrived the spot was amazing. It was towards the top of the hill and was surrounded by trees. There was no light pollution either so the night sky was lit up with more stars than I could could count. I highly recommend staying the night here if you are looking for a camping spot between San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay.

My daughters had a great time camping at WagMore. It felt private and was close to the beaches. Lori was a wonderful host.

Lori was very helpful in helping us find a camping spot on her property. The hiking trails on the property are very well maintained and are so beautiful to see the surroundings. You will hear some little critters like squirrels come check you out during the night haha but we felt very safe there. Great place to stay would love to come back soon!

Lori was very welcoming and even was gratious enough to upgrade me from overflow to a prime site because some campers needed to stay longer in overflow. Even the overflow was a good find though. Definitely recommend and will return here. Beautiful, private property in the SLO hills with a nice hike and Morrow Bay and downtown SLO within skipping distance. Great views.

We stayed at site #3 and it was great. Very private space with lots of room. Lori was awesome, definitely would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away and explore SLO/morro bay!

We stayed at Wagmore in Overflow site B. We had the option of choosing site A, but went with B because it seemed larger, slightly more private, and had a picnic table. All the sites seem private, and site A seems like there is more shade but is much smaller.

The experience was better than expected, not because I had low expectations, but just that the directions and markings on everything were so clear and easy to understand. Even a little light on the water spigot! There are flattened out spots at each site for putting a tent so that you're on flat ground. And the trail heads and trails are marked really well, so you have this sense that you're at a nicely maintained site, but it's totally isolated.

We have a high clearance vehicle, so the drive in and out (not long at all) was not a problem, but I used to have a Fit and I don't think it would be great. I just think you would need to take it very slow.

We camped in our car so we weren't quite able to get into a flat spot, but it was fine. And our bathroom tent had a nice and flat set-up. There is a trail right by the site and we had a really great morning walking and drinking coffee all by ourselves. This spot is definitely out in the wide open with no shade. This was perfect for a last minute, one night stay from LA. I would definitely stay here again and use it as a home base from SLO and Morro Bay or nearby.
