Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Spooner's Cove is one of the most popular areas in Montana de Oro State Park. Located near the tiny store and visitor center and the Islay Creek Campground, this beach is a wonderful place to hang out. There are a few rocky points which provide easy climbing and exploring opportunities and plenty of wide open sandy beach to set out some chairs and a blanket and enjoy the beautiful ocean. Combining some relaxing time in Spooner's Cove with a hike around the Bluffs Trail nearby makes for an outstanding day at this relatively little-visited park.
