Great bayside park with camping, golf, marina, and water access. Uncrowded compared to most beach-area state parks in California. A real pleasure.

We love coming here whenever the opportunity comes up. Our favorite camp spot is right next to all this beauty. Thumbs up

It's a magnificent setting. Staff are wonderful as is access to the bay. Afternoon breeze can be strong and cold! Campground is sold out in season.

My husband and I decided to hike the grove trail to get to the top of black hill, it's only a two mile round trip hike, but is mostly incline. The views at the top were amazing. The area wasn't crowded on a sunny Wednesday...More

We hiked out around the rock and the Morro Bay area....what a treat. This visit we say a bunch of Sea Otters. There must have been 40, mothers with babies on their bellies and lots of singles. It was one of the most wonderful sites...More
