Morro Bay California is RV-friendly

by Cami
(Montana to Baja)

Beautiful surfing town Morro Bay on the central coast of California has public indoor showers as well as beach showers. Maybe because they welcome surfers who overnight, the town overlooks RVers in many quiet city lots. I have no idea if it's official policy but we dropped many bucks on restaurants, retail, groceries and gas over a week because of the ease of staying there.

Marianne's Reply: It is indeed a lovely town with some great eateries and gift shops. Watching the amazing surfers ride huge waves from the parking area beside Morro Rock was a treat! We stayed in the Marina Parking Lot where signage was good.(I believe it was 72-hour-parking) but we did think we needed to be stealthy. We did ask the next day, and found out that the "official town policy" is no overnight RV parking in any town parking lots (retail businesses included). There was some overnight street parking on residential streets but it was all quite unlevel (the parking spots slope into the sidewalk). We could have corrected it with levelers but we wanted to be less obvious.

Ok, I will give boondocks in MB a second chance. Slept here last night near the movie theater on the residential side street. No problems and slept like a log. Here goes second try near the wharf. Wish me luck!

Morro Bay is super friendly

Not an RVer yet but I lived in MB recently (2014-2016) and the "official" policy is no overnighting on City property. But after working on the Embarcadero with MANY RVing Visitors and some permanent Residents I've found the MBPD pretty tolerant. MB depends on Visitors these days and they are as inviting as anywhere I've ever been. Be cool, don't leave a mess or stay in one place too long and it's likely fine.
