My husband and I decided to hike the grove trail to get to the top of black hill, it's only a two mile round trip hike, but is mostly incline. The views at the top were amazing. The area wasn't crowded on a sunny Wednesday morning which made the hike very pleasant.

We hiked out around the rock and the Morro Bay area....what a treat. This visit we say a bunch of Sea Otters. There must have been 40, mothers with babies on their bellies and lots of singles. It was one of the most wonderful sites I have seen.

Great place to explore the tide pools. Make sure to check the tidal charts for low tide so you can see all the exposed pools.

The good: great hiking, trail running, paddle boarding and playing with the family. The bad: crazy full of ticks (though that's why god invented tweezers). All in all, an amazing place.

This spot is great. Bathrooms and showers were clean. The crowd wasn't as rowdy as some camp sites. There is. Cute small museum no marina within walking distance.

Hard to just pass through on your car...the rains have really awakened all the majestic green natural to the area. It was as if everything were singing the Halleljah Chorus. Pull into any of the modest parking areas and take it all in. So many of nature's secret treasures on parade.

A beautiful State Park with lots of eucalyptus trees which provide a lot of shade. The campsites are a little bigger then on the Strand and they have a lot more hookups for motorhomes. If you like to know and you like to camp this is the place. Take a walk to the harbor and look for the otters.

We visit Morro Bay State Park at least one a year. The Rock the Strand and the town of Morro Bay are special. Quaint quiet and friendly. Our choice for accommodations is Morro Bay State Campground on the estuary.
