Morro Bay State Park campground features lagoon and natural bay habitat. The bay's most prominent landmark is Morro Rock. The park has opportunities for sailing, fishing, hiking, and bird watching. The park museum has exhibits that cover natural features and cultural history, Native American life, geology, and oceanography. The park also has a colorful marina and an 18-hole public golf course. On the bay's northeast edge is a pristine saltwater marsh that supports a thriving bird population.
The campground was unremarkable, but close to the water and the town of Morro Bay, and it was just what we needed for a quick stop-over while traveling.
Stopped here for a night while driving from Seattle to Santa Barbara. We'd wanted to stay in Big Sur but had not made reservations, so Morro Bay was the first campsite that allowed us to set up as close to the beach as possible. The beach is expansive, and was rather empty when we visited in march, but thats probably because the water wasn't warm enough for swimming. The town has anything you would need. This is no remote camping destination by any means. All in all a good site that allowed us to get a little rowdy by on the big old pacific.
