Awesome spot!

Super clean and great location, but docked a star because of the price. After fees when booking, it comes out to about $42.00 a night. 

Showers and bathrooms are spread out nicely. We tent camped and the noise wasnt bad at all. Though there was some mystery animal howling/screeching through out the night haha. Super close to the water. Kayak rentals an restaurant down by the dock and a great place to load kayaks into the water! Will definitely be back. Just make sure you book in advance! Fills up fast.

Cool Area, limited spots

This is a nice area and it's free so you can't beat that. Unfortunately there aren't a ton of spots to camp. I've been twice now and both times the actual camp sites were full by the time I got there (2-3pm Friday). Leaving us to grab one of the few remaining dispersed spots. If you can get on it super early you may get lucky. The road in was fine for 4x4 but there was one stretch with some ruts that could prove hairy if you aren't good at driving on dirt.

Amazing Views

One of the only places open in the area

During covid there’s not much open. This place has great views and spread out enough on the extra dispersed spots to feel solitudes

Morro Bay astate Park is a great location with spectacular views!

This campsite was great, the site was large, clean and nice. It’s close to everything! You can walk next door to golf, walk across the street to the beach and to dine at Bayside Cafe. Site seeing, hiking and biking trails, and shopping and restaurants are just a short drive away. The sunsets are incredible from just about anywhere in the bay.

Be prepared for the sand/dirt, make sure to bring a rug or mat to wipe your feet.

Just camping

Stayed here one night Nov 18 Small blm property Camp is full I stayed in an area just before the campground Hiking is limited to the trough roads And people go here to shoot guns at the side of a mountain Verizon signal very good here.

Dry camping but quiet.

Good dry camping with water and dump station at the exit. Cheap and safe. Check out.

Wildlife abound

Very easy to drive to. Paved all the way. Individual fire rings and picnic table at each site. Very clean.

Small BLM spot

Loved this spot as other options were concrete RV parking lots!We were surprised to find a small campground - 7 sites with picnic tables, shades and a drop toilet at the top of hill as we expected just disbursed camping in pull-outs off the few fireroads. The sites were full as we arrived late on a Sat night but we easily found a private spot nearby. There was a group partying on the top of the next hill and you could hear their tecno music and their laughter (which we kinda enjoyed :)) but otherwise it was a quiet place. It is about 15-20 miles off the Hwy and the last 7 or so miles are on a well maintained but narrow gravel road which has a few tight switchbacks near the top. Best for tents, vans and very small trailers. No water or electricity.

Bring your ATV join

Turkey Flat is a great place for groups to camp and drink beer around a fire. Wake up and fire up those off - road vehicles and maybe take a gun out to where they hunt turkeys or wild boar. It’s pretty removed from and residential developments so noise is no problem! 2 Vault toilets, picnic tables, no water, 20$ overnite/10$ day use, first come first served
