MORRO BAY, Calif. — A thin strip of 84 no-frills campsites is nestled between the beach and the residential area of north Morro Bay, Calif. The campground is set to close July 1, but Morro Bay city and business leaders are worried the closure will hurt the city’s economy, reports the San Luis Obispo Tribune.
City and business leaders — based on estimates by the city that some 44,000 campers use the park annually and spend about $58 each in the local economy — say the closure could cost as much as $2.5 million a year, reports the San Luis Obispo Tribune.
The San Luis Obispo Tribune reports that the city and Chamber of Commerce are working with State Parks to prevent the closure by finding a nonprofit group or concessionaire to run the campground.
