We went right after it had been raining, so all of the flowers were in bloom mode and gorgeous. There’s two campgrounds an upper and lower—we opted for Lower Moro campground. These campgrounds aren’t too pricey and it includes parking for one car each night you stay. The trails are well-maintained and wide, allowing a lot of room for mountain bikers and hikers of all types. It’s about a 3 mile trek to Lower Moro from the coastal parking lot and not too bad of a hike, but it does get steep at times especially if you trek the coastal ridge way. We picked Lower Moro and loved it because it has a view of the beautiful pacific ocean as opposed to Upper Moro. The sites include a picnic table and no fire pit, but it was warm over Memorial Day weekend (though it rained one day). The bathroom is nicer as well, but if you did decide to have a larger group to camp with, Upper Moro has bigger camp sites. No water available, so you gotta bring enough for everyone. I gave this 3 stars because the campground is right off the heavily trafficked trail and you can hear everything your neighbor is doing.
We camped from April 12th-14th and had plenty of spots to choose from after coming in at 3:10pm—which was awesome considering it was the first weekend of Jeep week! It wasn’t too hot and it had just rained so all the flowers and plants were thriving. Perfect time to go. 20 bucks a night, not too bad, so bring cash. Picked a spot up against a beautiful, red rock pile and set up camp. Plenty of space between you and your neighbors, but keep in mind, there is absolutely no tree coverage (no privacy and no shade). By the time we went to bed, the campground was full and sound carries, so be mindful of your neighbors when you’re coming in late. Each campsite gets a picnic table and fire pit, but there’s no water. Decent bathroom—open air so you can see the stars when you dump at night. Awesome.
