In Spanish it is called Montana de Oro. Another great side trip not far from Morro Bay, six miles. From San Luis Obispo, about twelve, A wonderful place to camp for a few nights too. Camp closer to the enterance and lay in your tent or your RV listening to the surf. During the Winter, view the storms for some dramatic sights and photographs. Wind and rain blowing at gayle force somtimes. Waves crashing into the cliffs! The thunder of the crashing, pounding waves can be almost deafening.
Montana de Oro got its name from the golden wild flowers in the park. The only riches here however; are the 8,000 acres of cliffs, sandy beaches and the many hiking trails and equestrian trails.
Islay Creek Campground can accomdate both RV's and the tent camper. Across from Spooners Cove and a short walk from the beach. About fifty camp sites With fire rings, picnic tables and water. This is a popular campground and most Summer weekends are booked well in advance. Open all year, but the
chilly ocean air can be brisk in the Winter.
After a day, or several days, at the beach; as you drive out one of my favorite dinner houses is
JIMMY BUMPS Pasta House located in Los Osos and run by my friend Jimmy Delmore.
Wonderful food. Nice wine selection. The menu is down to earth, traditional Italian. As the name implies, offering up great pasta, but also Chicken Marsala, Eggplant Parmigiana and some of the best Calzones and pizza to be had. You cant go wrong with JIMMY BUMPS!
