Although the park is named “mountain of gold,” you probably won’t find any of that good stuff here (but let us know if you do). The name, rather, comes from the abundance of golden wildflowers that grow along the coastline, inspiring one of the original landowners to bestow the romantic description that has now become the park’s identity. What you will find is a landscape rich with an incredible latticework of rails, rural campsites, beautiful vistas, and enchanted beaches. Why not take a walk to the shoreline and peer in the cool, mysterious waters of a tidepool? Or bike to the very top of the park, rewarding yourself with a cool drink and one of the best views in Northern California? The opportunities for exploration and adventure are nearly endless here, and offer a wide range of activities suitable for almost everyone.



Montana De Oro offers some of the most beautiful sand dunes and beach camping on the California coast. In the mood for a sand thrill? Try sand boarding down the steepest dunes! The best-known beach is Spooner's Cove which is across from Islay Creek Campground. Montana de Oro camping is available at their one campground, Islay Creek Campground for campers in tents, trailers or motorhomes. Walk-in primitive camping is available as well.
