Best In CA

This is the best State park in California. Surfing, Biking, hiking even golf if that's your thing. The sites are nice and the area is gorgeous.

Top Notch

As far as State Parks go this is a gem. Right on the beach by Morro Bay. Good place for hiking and surfing. Does get crowded depending on season. Well worth the stay.
