The road hugs the coast, with terrific views of the ocean, the golf course is fabulous, and the large, mainly shaded, campground, is a nice place to bring the motorhome. Reservations are required, but the bathrooms and showers aren't always available due to budgetary problems.

It was fun walking through here. Scenic and peaceful. Morro Rock is large! It is a nice place to stop when you need a break from the highway.

Very unique scenery, almost year around "good" weather. Worth a 13 mi detour off Hwy 101. Hear & see the seals, cormorants, pelicans

It was a very busy camp ground. We stayed in spot 26 which unfortunately has a path right next to it going to the bathrooms and shower. Very noisy camp ground. The camp host was up at 630 am driving his gas powered John deer cart around. The ability to walk to to things was really nice. Overall experience was... More

We didn't camp here; just drove by and stopped for a quick walk along the estuary to birdwatch and get a different perspective on the local scenery. Check out the spectacular views from the beautiful municipal golf course right next door, built at the top of a hill overlooking the ocean.

We stayed at the Ascot Suites in Morro Bay and were very pleased with the room- jaccuzzi tub, canopied bed, fireplace and a view from our balcony of Morro Rock. We were extremely satisfied with the room, the staff and our stay in general- will definitely go back when in the area!

We had a fun hike to the top of Black Hill. We had 3 kids ages 2-8. Easy hike, great views. We wanted something more, and were told to head over to Montana De Oro Park just a short drive way.

This place is beautiful. Seriously. I can't believe I have never been here. I've lived in CA almost my entire life and have never had the chance to visit this place. It is gorgeous and breathtaking. My husband's family goes camping every single year and they usually choose different places every year. This year, they chose the campgrounds at Morro... More
