17 Reviews of Morro Bay State Park
Beautiful and relaxing

This campground is nice any time of year- Including December! During the summer it will be packed, but during the off-season, the place is all yours- and almost perfection.

Lots of trees, grass, some bigger spots than others. Short Walking distance to the Bay and boat dock with kayaks/canoes, etc, plus a restaurant.

Established campground, basic sites, convenient to town

This is a well established California state park campground, just a mile or so from the small coastal town of Morro Bay. There are 30 water/electric hookup sites (all fhu sites are pull-through), about 100 dry sites of various sizes, and a dump station and clean-water-fill. There are park aides in the kiosk from 8am. to about 9:00pm in summer, and 9am to 5pm in winter, and always a camp host on duty To report problems to, or to buy firewood from. It's one of the busiest parks in the state park system, and it's a good idea to get reservations if possible. Bathrooms/token showers are very aged and function unreliably. Lots of big trees for shade in many areas, and a nice estuary boardwalk close by for a stroll.

Quiet, Secluded, and Beautiful

Unlike many state campgrounds you find near the highway or railroad tracks, this one is located a nice distance from the road.  Still, it is within walking distance to a small marina and restaurant. The quaint town of Morro Bay is nearby for fine dining and shopping.  The campground offers services you typically find at state campsites. The hike and bike camping area was $5 and situated in tall trees.

One of our all time favorites

This Is a fantastic site that has not only the fun of camping and being outdoors, but it is conveniently located walking or biking distance from the town. There are plenty of restaurants, attractions, and activities in close proximity to the site. the Morrow Bay Aquarium behind the giftshoo on the main drive of Morrow Bay is a really fun side trip.

One of my favorite sites on the coast

I love this campground. It is one of my favorite sites on the California coast. The campground is always clean and quiet. You can hike up the mountain to get a great view of the coast, Morro Rock and Morro bay. You are a short walk down to the bay where you can rent kayaks or canoes to go out into the bay or onto the sand spit.

Unexpected Gem

As a person who typically camps in remoter spots, I was pleasantly surprised by Morro Bay State Park in Morro Bay, CA. Although it is nestled between a golf course and surrounding community, once there, the site is as good as being at a remoter site but with the super convenience of having a beautiful and charming sea side town just outside of it. Perfect for the family that wants to dip-there-toe into camping without wanting to be too far from amenities and services.

Hidden Gem Off the 101

Morro Bay is the most adorable beach town just above San Louis Obispo, west of the 101 freeway. It’s worth making the short trek there! There is surfing, kayaking, fishing, and tons of activities to do while you camp out. Only downside is it gets a bit windy sometimes. Be prepared to bring some warmer clothing and enjoy this perfect little town. There are tons of shops, restaurants, and great bars to visit when you hit up the town to get away from camping.

Super shady by the ocean

rv camped in May. no reservation.

Across the road from beaches and hiking trails. our base camp for central coast activities. sooo many trees. We did not have many neighbors midweek.

camp host was friendly and informative.

took a nice hiking trail at the back of the campground for awesome views!

Great Location-beware foxtails!

We love MBSP, and enjoy taking our trailer. Either the hookup sites or those without are great, but if you have dogs aware that the grounds are covered almost entirely with foxtail grasses.

Great, clean campground on the Central Coast

The Morro Bay State park offers a scenic coastal campground nestled in tall eucalyptus trees just a stones throw from the water. There is plenty to see and do in town, and the campground has a kayaking company within walking distance. There's also a natural history museum across the street.

This campground is clean, and quiet with showers and flushable toilets. It's accessible with car, bike, or rv spots. They also offer a senior discount, but it's very affordable.

This campground is a great base camp for coastal exploring; either north to Cayucos, or south to San Luis Obispo and Pismo.
