The park was ok, I had been told on the phone they had full hookups but arrived to no sewer which I should have known being a state park. All was fine, we were just there two nights for a pre-wedding party.

We drove the short drive to the Park and Museum. The museum was great for the kids to explore. The views from the park are stunning.

This state park is well worth the time to drive through. At each curve in the road you can get a different view that are all are impressive. The roads are a bit tight but there plenty of areas to park.

Here's the deal, I did a ton of Youtube research on Morro Bay campgrounds before booking my site. The videos depicted a nice shady camp with lots of room but when we pulled into site 97 it was not as pictured online. It was bland...More

It’s a 30 minutes drive from Morro to Pismo. The Morro Bay beaches are exposed to the NW and are pretty windy and wild! Pismo is in a protected bay and is much gentler and has great wide beaches which you can actually... More
