Escape from the city: Sunny San Luis Obispo Campout!
The area around Morro Bay & Pismo Beach is a beautiful, rugged part of California.
Crazy enough for the experienced camper with all the gear-
but a perfect trip for those with just a sleeping bag and ready for a good time!
We continue the Escape From The City camping series by driving down the coast towards Pismo Beach- where some of the more low-key and popular State Parks in California holds adventure galore... Montaña de Oro State Park & Morro Bay State Park have some incredible rock formations formed by the battering ocean, beautiful viewpoints along the coast, and inland trails to secret waterfalls. Doesn't get much better than that! Our campground is a stone's throw away from the ocean and beautiful beaches that are waiting for us to relax on! Let's escape the chilly spring weather in the Bay and enjoy some sunshine down the coast!
We are limited in the number of people we can have at the campsite.
Sign up in advance to come along!
