About Los Osos, California

Los Osos is fortunate to have one of the most spectacular collections of recreational wilderness areas anywhere in California. Across the back bay inlet is Sweet Springs, a tranquil nature sanctuary. The coastal sand dunes that surround the bay lead to Montaña de Oro, considered to be one of California’s most notable state parks for hiking, mountain biking, fishing, camping, and equestrian activities.

The town of Los Osos itself is a quaint refuge from the fast-paced world. There are plenty of home style restaurants to satisfy any appetite after a long day of exploring. The neighborhood of Baywood Park is the perfect place to settle down for the evening and watch the sun set into the ocean. Come visit this rare, secluded California community and you’ll be grateful that you did.
