Haven't visited in 30 plus years, it was as beautiful as I remember, walk to the cliffs and gaze at the wonderful Pacific Ocean , if you are adventurous hike down to the tide pools and search for some shells, you will meet very nice people from all over the world hiking the trails, be sure to bring a camera...

Follow Bluffs Trail which leads along the cliffs along the coast. Find the stairs down to Coralina Cove to discover the magic of tide pools filled with little crabs, sea anemone, small fish and other wonders of the sea. Four adults and five teenagers were entertained for hours sceambling over rocks and trails -- a great way to work up... More

We camped here last week and loved it! The people were nice and the surroundings beautiful. The campsites are well spread out and not too close to each other which I like. The picnic tables had a little side cabinet that was great for dish washing so I didn't even need to use our side table. The beach is rocky... More

What a beautiful park! My husband and I are in our 30s and were on a road trip from San Diego to San Francisco-- I hadn't been to Montana de Oro since I was a child and he has never been, but I knew it would be perfect to camp there for a couple of nights. One of the highlights... More

We were staying in SLO and decided to see this location. It is a beautiful drive over. We did drive around and saw several trails you could go on. A few horse back riders were also on the trails. We walked to the beach which is right there from the parking lot. It was a rocky beach. Make sure to... More

A beautiful park right along the coast. If you're in the area, you won't be disappointed if you stop here for a while. Even if you don't feel like getting out for a hike, driving through the park is a treat. But - if you are in mood for a hike, there are SO many trails to chose from! My... More

We mark it average and not excellent, because of the tar problem on the beach. We have chemically sensitive people in our party, and they got quite ill from the strong tar smell. It was so bad, that it stunk up the car! The stuff would not wash out with soap and water, and had to be scrubbed off with... More

How lucky we are to live in the United States, which values it's wild and open spaces, and in California which has such remarkable wilderness opportunities and has, over the years, taken steps to preserve them. Montana de Oro State Park was created in 1965, and we would like to thank whoever had the foresight to purchase this remarkable property... More

Montana De Oro was the jewel among California's state Parks. The Bluff Trail meandered along a lovely stretch of coast. It was an easy, beginner trail. To my horror it was completely erased–replaced by a wide, aggregate paved road. No longer a pleasant hike, this beautiful coastline has been "made more accessible." Gone are the egrets and shore birds along... More

I'm almost hesitant to review it b/c i kind of want to keep it a secret. The campground was really nice with a decent distance between most sites. It also had a big knoll in the middle, so you weren't surrounded by 5 sites, but really only 2. We also stayed at one of the environmental sites, which was spectacular.
