New Cuyama

What's the difference between New Cuyama and Old Cuyama? About 5 miles!

Since Old Cuyama is basically a flood basin for the Cuyama River, a long time ago they moved the majority of 'town' westward. Looks like the old Buckhorn has finally gotten a complete and total make-over. WOW. How exciting! (can't wait to visit) This country area is a prime biker route and awesome drive west from here. The location is the middle of nowhere. New Cuyama is an agriculture mecca, with some cattle grazing and oil drilling nearby. The entire Cuyama River Valley (along Hwy 166) borders Los Padres National Forest. General store and gasoline, that's about it. Oh yeah, and wildflowers!

  • description:
    Agricultural community with a general store, post office, restaurant, burger shack & a boarded-up motel. This small community is located on Hwy 166, W of Hwy 33. A perfect stop over point for travelers heading to coastal destinations. The restaurant is decent cooking & service is pleasant. Located in between the Los Padres National Forest & the San Luis Obispo coastline, it is a nice place to relax on your drive west. A favorite motorcyclist route too. CHP is usually out with radar, so watch your speeds.
