We enjoyed a visit to the State Park when we took a break from driving on our California Coast Road Trip. Beautiful setting to take a walk or just relax and enjoy the beach.

Had great visit in Morro Bay and Los Osos. Beautiful scenery. Kayaking is fantastic as waters were incredibly peaceful and smooth. Enjoyed delicious dinner and drinks at Morro Bay Inn .

Loved this campground, quite, right on the bay, has a nice little restaurant across the street and UBER will come get you and take you to town for $7, tough to beat!

This place is perfect for birders and wildlife enthusiasts. You can rent kayaks and paddle boards. What unique and fragile place. I give this place only 4 stars because a golf coarse has no business in a place like this. Shame on you golfers!

Beautiful place! The campground is very nice and very close to the back bay for kayaking. We've seen wild turkeys, otters, pelicans and deer. Also tons of squirrels but very few in the campground. The restaurants are plentiful and delicious. Very dog friendly too!

Parking is available out front along the road as well as a really large parking lot across the street near the Marina and the small Cafe.
