Camp prepared

There are 40 campsites in Montaña de Oro, all with only the basics. Camping in this beautiful park is an escape from the bustle of daily life and urban noise. While you don't exactly need to "rough it," there are no stores, so be sure to pack all the supplies you might want for your stay.
