We stayed in this campground several years ago in a smaller rv and were eager to return. This time the rig was bigger and the sites seemed smaller. Overall the campground is showing serious neglect with overgrown bushes crowding the campsites. I have many new scratches down the sides of the rig just from trying to pull into my site. I can't imagine there isn't a CCC crew that wouldn't love to spend a few days there. We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The marina is just across from the campground along with the "Bayside Cafe" which has good food. Kayak rentals are available there too. Several good nature walks are in the vicinity and a beautiful golf course is just next door. The Embarcadero, (waterfront shops and restaurants) and Morro Rock are a short drive away.

Morro Bay is a great little town with beautiful beaches and lots to do in the area. This state park is older, as most are, but decently kept up and located in a great area. Just across the street is the marina and a wetlands trail. The town of Morro Bay is about a mile away. We stayed in the front section of the park, which is three rows of pull-throughs with electric and water hookups, which are long but kind of narrow. There is no view to speak of, but the vegetation provides a decent amount of privacy. The roads are easy to navigate and the sites are pretty level. Overall a great place to stay in the area. We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It's always a joy to stay at Morro Bay State Park. Good level sites, with some shrubs between the RV sites. Dump station available. Nice café across the street in the Marina, within walking distance. They do have WiFi available for the front part of the park, near the ranger station. The first 30 sites here are reserved for RV only, so you will get some WiFi. TV reception is decent. Clean bathrooms and showers. Firewood available for sale, fire rings and a concrete picnic table at each site, which is nice. Will continue to stay here! We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Morro Bay State Park is an excellent campground. It has 30 amp water/electric only with spacious sites. However, I don't think the $50/night fee is even close to reasonable. For the money, I'd recommend to stay somewhere else. We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean and State Park campsite. The RV sites are all pull through, so it's easy in and easy out. Sites are paved and level. Some have shade, but most are without. Electrical and water hook ups are all working and in good order, bathrooms are clean and well kept. Showers are free; water was warm but not hot. No camp store but nearby town is walking distance. Would recommend and we'd go back there again. We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the best state parks we have stayed. Sites are not on the water and a couple miles from the "rock" but in walking distance to marina and small beach. Nice golf course is adjacent to the campground. Walking distance to a great little restaurant Bayside. First come first serve to reserved RV sites, but all were about the same. Clean, very friendly staff. Museum also in walking distance and town is a bike ride away. Will definitely come back since there is water/electric for the RV sites and dump station also on site.

Not a good value at all. Self check in very early. No help other than a hard to read map. No septic available. Noisy at times. We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

We love this area, so our review may be biased. We had an ADA site with electric and water hookups for our 37' travel trailer. Plenty of room for the truck and trailer. The site is a cement slab with a table and fire pit. The pad was perfectly level, negotiable by a wheelchair, and with room to deploy the lift. Be sure to get the state park access pass to enjoy a 50% discount. This is not the same as the handicap placard for parking in handicapped parking zones. The placard will allow you to use the ADA spot, but will not give you the discount. Also, please don't reserve the spot without a handicap placard. You will be turned away, and you will have taken the spot from someone who really needs it. We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The bathrooms were dated but clean, unfortunately there was no soap and no towels or blower to dry with. We enjoyed the site and it gave us reasonable privacy (for a pull through). The location is great, and we enjoyed some great walks. We would stay here again. We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Truck Camper.

Sites and loops are paved and level. Sites are a little too close for our taste, but we did not have a problem with the noise level. We stayed at pull through site #23. It had water and electric hookups. Some sites are in the shade. Many, including #23, are in the sun and surrounded by shrub-size vegetation. Huge trees are scattered throughout the park. The site includes a fire ring/grill combo, CCC-era stone grill and picnic table made of stone, cement, and wood. Showers and restrooms were muddy at times. Some of the toilets were clogged. Park workers cleaned throughout the day, but it was hard for them to keep up during the weekend when the campground was full. Showers were free and had inconsistent hot water, which is exactly what posted signs said to expect. Just across the street from the campground entrance, is a place to rent canoes and kayaks. This is near the Bayside Cafe. Having a restaurant in walking distance to a campground is a nice treat. The Museum of Natural History was a very short walk down the road. This park has plenty of hiking trails, including one that goes to the top of Black Hill where you can get some great views. We would stay here again. We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed in site #6 which is a pull-through with 30amp electric and water hook-ups. There are no sewer hook-ups in park unless you are a host. There is however a sanitary dump located at the back end of the park. Site #6 is located directly across from a restroom/shower. The showers were all free this time because of a "no hot water guarantee". They were fine all week but there was a day of very little water pressure. Site 6 is directly across the street from the Morro Bay Yacht harbor and actually has a view of the water. The state nature museum is walking/biking distance and is free to registered campers, the kids will love it. The Morro Bay Golf Course is next door to the campground. Canoe and kayak rentals are across the street from the campground or you can launch your own there or at 3 or 4 other very close places. A walk/bike into downtown or the embarcadero is about 1.5 miles and is very nice during the week, a bit busy on the weekends. The host drive through the campground several times a day selling bundles of oak wood and kindling. The ranger comes through once at night. A fairly quiet campground except on the weekends when it's usually full. My $25 rate reflects 1/2 off hook-up rate. We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is an outstanding state park. I cannot find a fault. We just loved the setting of the park as well as its amenities: trees/bushes between the hookup sites gave nice privacy, sites were level and just pristine with BBQ and fire pit and stone tables. The campground was within easy walking distance to so many things to do (restaurants, kayak rental, natural history museum: free for campers, hiking trails, beaches, and even golf). Lots of friendly rangers. Well set-up sanitation dump. We stayed on a sunny, warm winter (Super Bowl) weekend; I'd say about 75% of hookup sites were filled. There was lots of room in the non-hookup area. But I can see where reservations would be necessary as the high season approaches. AT&T 3G reception was OK; Verizon was non-existent. The Park offers WiFi for $7.99 a day. We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a wonderful campground, it has large sites with plenty of room for a big rig. The majority of the sites are pull-throughs with very few back-ins. It's a quiet park with mountain and bay views. The showers and bathrooms are a bit old, but clean and with hot water. You are close to town, but not too close to ruin the camping experience. The only thing that would make this park better would be full hook-ups, but for now partial will do. I would recomend this park to anyone. We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Yikes! Fifty bucks for a state campground with zero amenities? They even wanted 8 bucks for Wi-Fi. Not a bad place: nice setting, clean, sort of isolated, but close to town. Virtually every RV park around Morro Bay is cheaper with more to offer. If the state of California thinks this is the way to economic recovery, well, I'm glad i don't live here. We drove as fast as our Dodge would pull us to a cheaper and nicer park called Morro Dunes. (Right on the water and 20 bucks cheaper.) We camped at Morro Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
