Morro Creek is a coastal stream in San Luis Obispo County, central region of the U.S. state of California. The watercourse flows from the Santa Lucia Mountains to discharge into the Pacific Ocean, at its mouth on Estero Bay, near the city of Morro Bay.
The creek is in the coastal sage and chaparral section of the California chaparral and woodlands Ecoregion. Historically this watershed had habitats containing considerable amounts of chaparral, and scarce Oak woodlands, and Grey Pine (Pinus sabiniana) trees.
There is also incidence of historic mining of chromium within the catchment basin. It was used extensively for grazing by the cattle ranches.
