Morro Dunes Resort Campground & Chapala's Mexican Restaurant, Morro Bay, California

The Morro Dunes Resort Campground is a nice place and just a short walk to a great beach by the Morro Rock. (In fact, there are views of The Rock from most places in the campground.) The campground is also located within walking distance (about a mile) of the harbor and tourist areas. Morro Dunes offers RV sites with full hookups with or without TV, free WiFi, and many tent sites. There are several shower and laundry facilities conveniently located throughout the park. The only down side is that the park is very compact, meaning sites are close together and the adjacent property to the east is the water treatment plant for the city of Morro Bay. So far there hasn't been an odor problem.


Tonight we figured it's time we get some good Mexican food while in California, so per a recommendation from a woman at the campground, we set out to find Chapala's Mexican Restaurant. The directions were.....go north on Main Street and the restaurant is in the 76 gas station. Yes, you read correctly - the 76 gas station. On the outside it is a gas station, but inside there are several tables and a nice casual decor. The chips and salsa were all freshly made and were terrific as our meals - Brad had the highly recommended chicken soft tacos, and Suzanne had the chicken fajitas. This was some of the best Mexican food that we've had in recent memory. The whole time there, we were fascinated that this mom (who does the cooking) and pop (who does the serving) joint served two purposes - gas and great Mexican food. Their menu indicated that they are open for all three meals of the day, so don't miss this place if you are in Morro Bay!
