The only real complaint is the the campground is right next to the freeway, so it is noisy. On the other hand, that freeway location makes for an easy in and out to get where you are going. The campground is clean; sites are fairly level, and there is vegetation between sites. Sites and roads are gravel. Hookups worked well and were very convenient. There is a rec room with games, a pool, a store, and a playground. It's a really decent place to stay with the drawbacks being that you are in the desert and next to the freeway. Other than that, the campground is great!

Beautifully maintained park with enormous spaces fronting and nearing the lake. great walking trails and a very pretty nature garden nearby. The park is within walking distance of London Bridge. Bathrooms are old and decent, but everything else about park maintenance is stellar. Lots of gravel (it's the desert) everywhere that the dog didn't like much. Roads are paved, sites are level. Great value at $30 per night. Friendly park rangers!!!

There's a big range of quality from one park employee to another. Some were great; others were total control freak jerks. I guess if you can't get a job as a prison guard, then you apply to work as a park ranger so that you can boss people around. The campground is fairly high on a bluff. Landscaping is natural scrub chaparral, beautiful but no shade really. The campsites are gravel and are absolutely huge. They are mostly level, but bring blocks or have a leveling system. About half of the campground has water and power; the other half does not. There are water views from many of the sites. The beach is nearby, but it's a good half mile down a steep hill, so you might want to drive. Wifi is available, but not guaranteed. It worked fine for us most of the time.

Highly developed park - lots of cement. Landscaping is groomed and groomed and groomed. Park is immaculate. There are picnic areas, meeting rooms, a beautiful pool and hot tub complex. There's some cute functions like happy hour and other hokey yet friendly get togethers. There are supposed to be water aerobics class, but nobody was there either day when we showed up. Location is right next to the San Diego Bay park, which gives you lots of walking possibilities. Unfortunately there is also a lot of noise from the public park, lots of loud stereos with heavy bass. You are also close to the marina, a pretty good restaurant and more walking. There seemed to be more than average incompetent and inconsiderate RV drivers who blocked your site getting into theirs, ran over the flower beds, etc.

This park is in an urban area right next to the Long Beach Convention Center. Despite that, it has a nice vibe that is very comfortable. Sites are fairly tight, but fine. There is landscaping to make things pretty. There's a nice pool and hot tub, a little store, horseshoes, and shuffleboard. It's a fairly short walk to the Catalina Express or a dozen good restaurants. It is also right on the waterfront, a bit of a jog from the bay.

Beautiful park in a gorgeous redwood forest. Small tight sites that are not always level. There is almost no cell phone reception and wifi is not reliable except for the in very middle of the night. There are small children driving around on battery powered cars and scooters, utilizing the same space as the 40 foot double axle class A motor homes. We left after one night because of the impossibility of communication with the outside world and the noise of the powered scooters.

Great location just a stone's throw to the beach. Sites were paved pad with grass/dirt under the picnic table. Average level of maintenance at best. Lots of long term residents, some grouchy. First night was very noisy with lots of people drinking and talking loudly. The people next to us had at least a dozen people in their site. Next two nights were quieter and management enforced the curfew after we complained. Wifi was $5 per night and worked well (it was worth the $5). Laundry facilities were functional and reasonable. We grew to like this place by the 2nd day. Other choices in town have more traffic noise and don't take reservations; the bar is low.

Wonderful campground - looks like the old fashioned campground that I remembered as a kid. Big sites with tall shrubs between make for lots of privacy. Paved road and clean graveled sites. Great utilities (except that wifi wasn't all that good). Immaculate laundry room, a grassy field for kids and dogs to play. Propane available for $2 a gallon and wood available at really reasonable prices. Nice people too. Pretty much everything that you want a campground to be. Note that we have Verizon and cell reception in this part of town is half a bar.

Sites are of medium size, not that private, not much shrubbery between sites. Park is clean and well maintained. Location is quite nice; it's about a mile to the beach and backs to the prettier (but no hookups) state park campground. Wifi was pretty iffy. There's some bocce ball games, bean bag toss, a dog area. The restaurant in the front parking lot is pretty good and is certainly convenient.

This campground is in a stunning setting, behind shallow dunes right on the beach! The campground is kind of basic, But the state is currently upgrading the campground and installing 55 sites with full hookups. Grading work has already begun and hopefully the state will do a good job. This place could be dynamite!

This park is in a fantastic location. The front four RV spots on Main Street are noisier, but not bad. The back spots are quiet. The park is clean, well maintained, attracts a respectable clientele, and has friendly and supportive owners. The walk to the Embarcadero is less than five minutes and walk to downtown is less than two. WiFi and cable are excellent. Don't worry much about the lack of 50 amp because Morro Bay is rarely very warm. The laundry room is immaculate and is fairly priced.

We pulled in and it appeared to be a very attractive park - nicely laid out with great trees. The positives stopped there when we realized that the park was jammed up right against the freeway. We pulled into our spot (a pull thru) easily enough and then realized that there was an enormous pothole at the front right-hand side of the spot. We had to talk to staff 4-5 times before they would fill it, which was going to be necessary for us to get out of the site two days later. The swimming pool was not filled with water. The KOA web site say that the pool opens April 13th and this was May 13, so we were not happy. Then we went to take a shower and there was no water pressure, because now they are filling the pool. They were filling the pool during the day when people need water and they hadn't notified anyone. We asked them to stop the pool filling so that we could do laundry and they grudgingly agreed for awhile. This campground suffers from lack of planning and grouchy staff. And, for the first time in 8 months of travel, the cable TV was terribly fuzzy and wasn't usable.

This campground is right next to and level with the freeway. It is really really loud. That being said, there aren't many campgrounds in this area - so we stayed here. It was a decent place for one night. Some of the sites are much better than others. There are some larger and more level sites at the back. Some of the sites in the front and middle are not even close to level. We found a site that worked for us for the one night we were there. We didn't use the bathrooms, showers, or laundry. Management was friendly and helpful.

Sites are in two loops - a pull thru loop and a backup loop. The pull thru loop has cable and larger sites. We were in the pull thru loop and most sites were level, decently spaced, and had good road access. Both the internet and the cable worked very well. Management was extremely friendly and helpful. The campground was clean and well maintained. The only real negative is that the freeway is very close and very loud.

The state park itself is absolutely beautiful and has wonderful trails and visitor sites describing both the flora/fauna and the history of the area. We found the campground lacking. While the campground is quite pretty and sites are well separated by shrubbery, the roads are narrow and rutted and are overgrown by shrubbery in many places. We were hit by trees on our roof FIVE times between campsites C1 and C7. Leveling is also an issue, very few of the sites are level - some are as much as a foot out of level from front to back. The state park has WiFi, but you need to be within a few feet of the store for it to work. We were pleased to see that there were laundry facilities - that is until we saw them. The laundry room was really dirty, expensive ($2 for a wash and $2 for a dry) and full of old light fixtures and a pane of glass just sitting on the floor. We complained to park management and absolutely nothing was done during the week we were there. We also complained about the overgrown shrubbery and the same nothing was done.
