The trolley ride brought us to the State Park. It looks like a great place to stay and is also within walking distance, or trolley ride, to town.

Fantastic beautiful place to return to nature. The unspoiled beach and rocky shore is just as nature would have it and it is very serene and unmarred. A great place to go and relax and be calmed.

We only had 1 night stopover here on our way back from San Francisco to LAX. What a beautiful relaxing place to stop over. So close to LA, but far enough away to just chill and relax before a long flight home.

Originally we had reservations at Rufugio, but got canceled because of the oil spill. So we scrambled to find a last minute spot. I found Morro bay state park. Beautiful park, marshlands with wild birds and small crabs, sycamore lined coastline. It really had a variety of things to see. Had a good time. The only negative things I would... More

I cannot begin to type how beautiful this wonderful area is. It was clean so I know they keep it well maintained. All I wanted to do was sit in my chair and watch the sun set. So peaceful and wonderful. Cannot wait to go back.

We visited in September when shorebirds are migrating. We spent a very productive couple of hours here. We recommend bringing a spotting scope if you have one. For non-birders there are nice trails that anyone can enjoy. The scenery is just lovely.

The parks Natural History Museum has a wealth of information and is set up brilliantly to entertain the kiddies. The walk up to the peak of Black Hill was rewarded with amazing views in every direction - if your looking for a place a little off the beaten path, this little gem should not be missed!

Lovely, long stretch of clean sand. Waves not too large for kids, ideal for beginners in surf. Restrooms at beach. Great views.
