San Luis Obispo County is known for its great beaches, picturesque towns, and sparkling lakes. Campers at Morro Strand State Beach Campground have the beach and Pacific Ocean before them and Morro Bay close by.
Morro Strand State Beach Campground is immediately north of Morro Bay and 2 miles south of Cayucos. The 3-mile long beach at Morro Strand is popular for kite flying, jogging, windsurfing, and fishing. Picnickers often choose Morro Strand's fine picnic sites.
Morro Strand State Beach Campground has 76 campsites arranged in 3 rows next to the beach. Twenty-three of the campsites are for RVs or trailers only and have full hook-ups (water, electric, and sewer). Those sites are along the back row. This arrangement means that large RVs and trailers will not be obstructing the ocean views for other campers in standard sites. Tent camping and campfires are not permitted in the hook-up campsites.
Standard sites have enough space for a tent to be pitched. Twenty-seven of the standard sites are along the row closest to the ocean and another 22 occupy the middle row. A few are in the back row. Standard sites can only accommodate vehicles up to 24 feet in length.
