From their web site:

Morro Bay State Park has reopened as of March 9, 2017. The park had been closed due to flooding and damage from falling trees.

Morro State campground was a nice place and the surrounding Bay area was awesome. We've also stayed in Pismo Beach State Campground backed up to the dunes and the ocean. Our site was nice but there were a lot of law enforcement vehicles rolling through. We weren't thrilled with our neighbours.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions... we ended up booking in at Islay Creek Campground at Montaņa de Oro. State Park.

Gets good reviews. Not night on the beach but walkable to one... some great scenery around there.

$25/night.

John, Nice location with some amazing bluff hikes many with amazing views. Be sure to check out Point Buchon. The property belongs to PG&E (power company) you may need to sign up on line and check into the kiosk to hike but worth the effort (it is maybe a mile from where you will be camping) Have fun .... need any other local advice let me know. Bill

We spent some time on the beaches this past May. We stayed at Carpinteria Beach State Park (the sites with hookups were parking lots but on the beach), Pismo Beach Oceano Campground (electric and water and within a mile of the beach but not our favorite), and Morro Bay state park (electric and water and a block from the marina), which we really liked and will go back there. There is lots to do in the area. We especially enjoyed Black Hill and El Moro Elfin Forest. Se my blog posting at Morro Bay | Traveling in Blanquillo
We also visited Montana de Oro State Park, and it was also nice. We didn't camp there. We found Morro Bay to be a more relaxed place than Pismo Beach but it depends on your style and what you like. We plan to go back to Morro Bay and will visit Pismo Beach to see the Monarch Grove but won't stay there.
