General Information

Morro Bay
Copyright: - California State Parks
Morro Bay
Description - Morro Bay State Park features lagoon and natural bay habitat. The bays most prominent landmark is Morro Rock.

Attractions - Morro Bay State Park features lagoon and natural bay habitat. The bay's most prominent landmark is Morro Rock. On the bay's northeast edge is a pristine saltwater marsh that supports a thriving bird population.

Recreation - The park has opportunities for sailing, fishing, hiking, and bird watching. The park museum has exhibits cover natural features and cultural history, Native American life, geology, and oceanography. The park also has a colorful marina and an 18-hole public golf course.

Climate - Climate in the Central Coast varies greatly with elevation and the amount of coastal influence. Areas with more coastal influence experience moderate temperatures year round with fog likely from June through mid-August. Plan your coastal visit in the late summer or fall to ensure the best conditions for viewing the scenery. Also, occasional clear days between winter and spring storms are incomparable. Areas further inland experience greater temperature extremes, with relatively cooler winters and hot summers. Inland areas often receive frost on winter nights. As throughout most of California most of the precipitation comes in the winter months, with April through October normally very dry.

Location - The park is in the town of Morro Bay, just off Highway One.

Report: Although the drive is long, this is my favorite camping getaway! I've been three times with my husband, dog, and other family members, and we love it...it's the best place to get out of the L.A. heat in the summer, and the locals are so friendly. Definitly a peaceful getaway!
