As has been said, must be one of the nicest KOA's in existence. The park is very busy, but doesn't feel overly crowded. Sites are close to each other, but there is landscaping to make it feel a little less impacted. All the utilities work very well...except the WiFi, which is almost unusable, and the water pressure is not great. Very well kept, nice staff...just a pleasurable place to stay.

We really enjoyed our two night stay at Marina Dunes. The people working the desk were very friendly and helpful, finding us a great spot which easily fit our 24' motorhome and motorcycle trailer. The sites are nicely level, with nicely maintained pea gravel and picnic tables on small, tile "patios." The use of elevation and small trees and shrubs leads to good feeling, in terms of seclusion. Well, at least as much as a structured, close in facility like this can provide! I'm not sure what path others were taking to the beach, but we didn't find it a long walk, at all. Maybe 1/3 mile at most? It is over sand for a good portion of the path, which does make walking a bit harder. The beach, itself, is very nice. Close proximity to Carmel, Monterey and Laguna Seca contributed to our very much enjoying our stay. Unfortunately, that close proximity includes being near the freeway. Freeway noise is the one significant downside to this location. I'll use this park again.

First the good: The park is in a nice location, just over the dunes from the ocean and Morro Rock and far from any busy streets. Maintenance is top notch, all sites clean, raked and the whole park is in great repair, which is saying something given the proximity to the ocean and salt water! The waterfront/downtown area of Morro Bay is a short walk (maybe one mile?) down the beach, adding to the attractiveness of the location. All services worked well, including the free Wi-Fi. Now, the not so good: The sites are very open and pretty much right on top of each other. No real "camping" feel. The people working the desk were not the most friendly. Not rude or anything, but just not real friendly. Maybe because we stayed immediately following Labor Day weekend and they were a little tired, their patience was thin? All in all, I'd definitely go back to Morro Dunes. Not my dream spot, but a very nice RV park in a great location.

The good: Beautiful location close to fork of Yuba River and OHV trails. Some decent sites, but you have to know where to look. Many good recreation opportunities. We took our dirt bikes and had great rides way back into the Sierras to various lakes and streams, where we fished and picnicked. Also, there's a good swimming spot on the river to cool off after riding. The bad: The park is falling apart at the seams. Way too much deferred maintenance. Its kind of depressing, this park has such incredible, natural potential and to see it so underutilized is sad. Freeway noise is a problem at the lower sites, try to find a site way to the back of the park, in the full hookup area adjacent to the OHV trail head. We'll go again, because of the great trails and natural beauty of the Sierras, but it would be great if they'd spend some money on this place!
