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.

Infested with flies

Went in late October and the campground was absolutely infested with flies. Us and the three other campers that showed up around the same time ended up leaving and going to Selby up the road because the flies were so out of control. Not sure if this is a seasonal issue because there isn’t any mention in other reviews.

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.

Breath taking views & distanced from it all

We camped here in Late November. It was definitely cold at night, so bring proper equipment for near freezing temps.

We brought our dog with us and she had a great time. There are TONS of awesome trails around to walk, hike, or bike.

I would recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get to the spot depending on which route you take. If you follow the google maps directions, the road is a bit rough in spots.

If you are following the paved road and see a dirt road called “tunnel road” you can take a right on that and follow it to the recreation area.

There are tons of spots to camp.

We did not have a fire due to high fire danger and wouldn’t recommend it without the proper permits and fire conditions!

Overall this was a wonderful campsite!

Nice and quiet

Great spot to relax. There are some nice hiking options, as well.

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.

Dispersed site at Mt. Figueroa

We found this great dispersed site (free US Forest) just off the Tunnel Road sign for the Mt. Figueroa campgrounds. There is a dirt road that takes you there but it looks like you might need AWD/4WD during rainy seasons since the road had some deep ruts. We came when it was dry season in a 2WD Eurovan w/ regular street tires.

We camped at the end of October (high temp was upper 80s, low temp was lower 60s) and there were still many flies so be sure to bring netting or repellant. The slightly unlevel site offered a great sunrise view as well as a sunset view over Sawmill basin.

We didn’t see any other campers around us. Even though we camped by the side of the dirt road, no one passed us the whole night.

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
