Big WOW for this state park. We spent the day hiking here. Bring hat, water, jacket, camera and lunch, good walking shoes and a smile. The power of the ocean is truly felt here. There is a beach as well as hikes on the cliffs. The place made me feel really happy and very small.

A beautiful easy walk on a paved walkway along the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Enter the national park and drive to the end. The views of the crashing waves were amazing, rock formations and the birds.

We stayed for three nights on the Montana De Oro State Park campground (site 40). The campground is not very big and is fairly primitive (vault toilets only and no showers), but what you get is a very beautiful environment and a laid back atmosphere. Choose one of the sites on the outside of the last loop if you can... More

Beautiful shoreline views of crashing waves and pounding surf. Sea caves, stacks and arches. Drive to the end of the road, park and walk back along the Bluff Trail. There is a bathroom (pit) at the parking lot. Watch for rattlesnakes! Dogs are not allowed.

This campground has no running water, and the toilet facilities are pit/chemical style. That said, the toilets are well maintained, and not smelly. And the campground itself is well laid out, the spaces are large and the sites on the outside of the loops are really nice with trees and shrubs between them for privacy. It is a short walk... More

The views were better than we expected. We had ventured out just for a hike and found ourselves among a beautiful seascape among rolling hills. I can image how even better everything would look in the spring with the lush green and spring blossoms. We called earlier for the tide information and were able to enjoy a large tide pool... More

Going on a morning 2 1/2 mile hike on the "Bluff Trail." An easy stroll along a most beautiful panoramic view of the central coast. If in the area for a few more days; try the other trails at the Montaña de Oro State Park.

This is beautiful location and the campsites are very spacious & there are a bunch of hiking trails. Spooners Cove is a great beach and it is a easy walk from the campgrounds. The views and scenery are incredible.

We loved the family hike through here. We saw a whale, deer, and lots of birds. There were stairs to walk down to the water and the paths were clearly marked and a flat surface for adults or children to navigate easily.
