About the Camping Location at Camp Wagmore:
A 63 acre property adjacent to large nature preserve and Morro bay State Park. Beautiful and private, yet close to many Central Coast attractions. Enjoy views of Chorro Creek Valley and iconic Hollister Peak from this oak covered terrain of knolls and interspersed grassland. This is a relatively undeveloped property that offers closeness with our local flora and fauna, hiking trails, and privacy. Some of our guests have said it is like having a state park to yourself! Come prepared for primitive camping!
We will share a large group site, individual sites may be available for an extra cost, please email us if you'd like a private site, but please know they are extremely limited.
Potable water and outhouse on site, no showers or flush toilets. BYO Everything.
Please note that this event takes place in the forest and the intertidal zone. We will be hiking and walking over sharp, slippery rocks, hills and cliffs. This is not an event for people with major mobility issues.
This is an all ages and family friendly event, but we are not providing child care. Parents are in charge of their children at all times.
Guides will include Kelpful co-founders Melissa Hanson and Jules Marsh, as well as guest Tanya Stiller of Healing Tide.
