The wonderful incredible Montaña de Oro State Park Campground is about only 40 miles south of Hearst Castle Visitor Center but it is on a dead end road not near any majior highways and off the beaten path, a Central California Coastal hidden jewel of a campground and state park with unique historical and natural beauties that should not overlooked during your visit to the California Central Coast. There is a quaint old historical ranch house (that includes the ranger headquarters and a small museum), an picturesque little cove with picnic tables and a nice little gravel beach although most of its extensive shoreline is rocky and perfect for photos and tidepool exploration. In recent years the park has spread out and been further developed to include Sandspit which has a nice picnic area and this place plus some other acres has added mile and miles to the parks already extensive and interesting trail networks. The Montaña de Oro State Park offers a small primitive campground and equestrian camping, and as mentioned miles and miles of hiking, mountain biking and equestrian trails. The state park features a variety of terrains and habitats to enjoy and explore; from sand dunes to beautiful marine coastal terraces and rocky beach tide pool areas rising quickly to the top of the 1,347-foot Valencia Peak; you should climb to the top of Valencia Peak and hike the marine terraces but the canyon hikes are my personal favorites.
