Mount Madonna is one of the most majestic of the central coast California State Parks. The 3,688-acre park is dominated by a redwood forest and overlooks Monterey Bay to the east. Once home to the Ohlone Indians and cattle baron Henry Miller, it now is primarily home to a Buddhist center, a Hindu community, Silicon Valley commuters, and acres and acres of legal Marijuana ranches.

Practicing yoga ensures a calm spirit, mental balance and brings spiritual benefits to all who practice.

Mount Madonna County Park has 118 reservable campsites. Each site is well groomed and comes with a bar-b-que pit, food locker and picnic table. There are seventeen partial hook up RV sites. The showers and rest rooms are clean and well maintained. There are many trails for hiking and horseback riding. Explore the ruins of the Miller estate and become acquainted with the many ghostly apparitions claimed to be seen through the morning mist. Some locals believe that the Virgin Mary even appears to believers on certain lunar phases. Interesting. If ghosts aren't your thing, take a yoga class, or the Friday night movie in the amphitheater. Regardless, enjoy the fresh air and cool ocean breezes under the redwoods.
