Nice beach, great for RV camping with ocean views on both sides, saw some people wind sailing and kayaking. Remember it gets windy.
We did not camp there, we were staying at the Bodega Bay Lodge. We walked along the beach. It was in the afternoon and quite windy (I'd recommend going earlier in the day) and made it about 2/3rds of the way to the end. Lots of birds and just a very pretty area. A romantic walk.

Great sandy beach. Waves not too big. Electric charge station at the main parking lot. Of course this is NorCal so the water is not warm so bring your wetsuit. Faces SW so is sheltered form the NW swell and waves.
