Montana De Oro State Park
Reviewed April 2, 2012

We chose environmental site 1. It's a long walk from the car, no water available and a pit toilet. It's perfect. The site was clean, the toilet well maintained a clean. The sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep after an evening of stargazing. Loved the place.

Went to the park this last weekend and enjoyed the hike down to the Bluff trail overlooking the ocean. Great views of waves, rocks with the erosion creating great landscapes. The hiking is moderate with little elevation gains.

After we started back, stopped off in Moro Bay and saw pictures of the rock formations that look like Stonehedge- going to have to check this out on our next hike.

I have been to Montana de Oro State park dozens of time. My kids enjoy the beach that is mostly comprised of small rocks and shells. I had gone there as a child, now as a 30 something with kids I enjoy it all the better. The trails are wonderful, and if you do head out take a camera. The coves that are formed by the ocean waves are breathtaking. I do suggest staying on the trails as the rocks are a bit slick at times. The only downside is the occasional fog that rolls into the entire central coast area. So take a jacket and enjoy the scenery.

The only other review says that there is no running water at the state park- that is in fact un true. There are a few sites that you can utilize that have a lower rate per night that do not have water & you have to hike in. However the majority of the sites have running water nearby. plenty of places to dispose of trash and recycleables. The camp ground is on a bluff above the beach. A creek runs year round through the side of the campground and into the ocean. There are plenty of day use grills and tables. Numerous trees of all variety. Miles of great hiking and mountain biking trails. The bathrooms do not flush however they are actuall buildings and have no foul smell. Durring the off season the rate is 12$ per night if I remember correctly. Racoons can be a problem so be sure to store food properley-Most sites have boxes with doors built into the end of the tables. Beware though, the racoons are the only animal other than humans with an opposed thumb-making them able to do finute tasks with there paws, such as open these said boxes. You will see many types of birds, deer, racoons and opossum- Perhaps even a mountain lion. The sound of the waves crashing on the beach is enough to put even the illest insomniac to sleep. If you do decide to patron our small town of 15 thousand please be sure to spend all of your money, dont act like a ------ tourist and drive with confidence as we cant stand incompetnat drivers.
