Exploring Morro Bay

Tom Wilmer

At the far end of town is the Morro Bay State Park. 

In addition to the State Campground, where many vacationers reserve their campsite months in advance, the State Park is also host to the County owned Morro Bay Golf Course—affectionately dubbed Poor-Man’s Pebble beach. One of the Park’s lesser known gems is the Natural History Museum, perched on a bay front rock promontory

just steps from the golf links, and campground. Tom Wilmer and Brent Haugen, Director of the Morro Bay Tourism Bureau visit with Rouvaishayana the State Park’s Manager of the Natural History Museum. Next stop is a visit with Mike Samaniego, the Head Golf Pro at the Morro Bay Golf Course and then it’s down to the Embarcadero for a visit with the owner of Sub Sea Tours, located in front of Marina Square.
