California State Parks announced the reopening of some campgrounds at Morro Bay State Park, Hearst San Simeon State Park and Morro Strand State Beach with new COVID-19 guidelines, according to KBAK.

Current reservation holders can begin checking in after 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19, and walk-ups will not be permitted.

  • Each campsite will allow up to eight people from the same immediate household and two vehicles maximum.
  • Face Coverings: Currently, the San Luis Obispo County health orders require face coverings when campers cannot maintain a minimum six-foot distance from other campers and those not from the immediate household.
  • Guest Passes: Guest passes or courtesy passes will not be issued to non-registered campers or friends.
  • Share the Road: Drivers, cyclists and hikers are urged to be cautious and to share the road. When Morro Bay Campground opens to campers, Lower State Park Road will also open to vehicular traffic for visitors and local residents.
  • Parking: Day-use areas and parking lots remain open to the public, but overnight parking restrictions will be strictly enforced.
