For Morro Strand State Beach: Landed here by accident. Thought we we had reserved at Moro Bay State Park. “Happens all the time” said gate ranger. Something funky is reservation system. NO DOGS ON BEACH. Short leash on asphalt only. Campground over run with rodents: ground squirrels and rabbits. Made our dogs crazy. Dog beach 1 mile to north. Less crowded than Pismo beach. Facilities adequate, but worn. Appears CA government knows that folks will pack in regardless.

For Morro Strand State Beach: Loved this place! Would have stayed longer. Everything in good condition. An easy walk over the dunes to a wide sandy beach. Wear shoes - sharp stickers in the sand. Beautiful views of Morro Rock

For Morro Strand State Beach: Beautiful campground with views of the ocean and majestic Morro Rock.
Situated between a residential street and the ocean dunes, it is basically a large parking lot. We stayed in the full hookup section along the East perimeter. The spaces are tight - room for your rig, a space for the toad, and a picnic table.
The facilities are newer, with level concrete pads and stainless steel utility pedestals.
Full hookups with 20/30/50 amp. Fires are not allowed in the full hookups because of the close proximity, but the dry camping sites have fire rings, and the camp hosts sell wood for $10 a bag.
Most sites have decent views, and this park has the closest proximity to the water of any park or campground in Morro Bay. The dunes and beach run for miles in each direction, from Cayucos Bluffs to Morro Rock. The dunes are closed off to protect the nests of the Western Snowy Plover, but access paths to the beach are provided at intervals. Also because of the protected birds, kite flying and dogs are not allowed on the dunes or beach. Dogs are permitted in the campground, but must be on leash. The restrooms have flush toilets and are cleaned daily. The beach is popular with surfers, but is never crowded. Park staff, rangers, and camp hosts provide a constant presence and are friendly and helpful.
The town of Morro Bay is a 5 minute drive, as is the bay itself. We spent an afternoon kayaking the bay, and were entertained by playful sea otters and by the sea lions jockeying for position on a boat slip they had taken over.
We had a great stay, and will be back.

For Morro Strand State Beach: The place is clean. Full hook up for sites 47-71. I had site 55 which had a divider between my next neighbor which was nice. The ground is slightly off level even though it is cemented.
