The walk from the camp grounds to the beach is beautiful, the view can't be beat. The beach itself is perfect - we built a driftwood beach bungalow and hung out in it all day. An awesome trip and a perfect day!

Fantastic views of beaches and the ocean. On our walk we saw deer, sea lions and a whale. Nothing to dislike. You can walk for miles.

We spent the day here walking along the trails. We walked out to the beach and walked to the end. The sand is steeper than it looks. We walked along the bluff trail up to Sea Ranch but it continued on. We crossed under the bridge to get to the other side of Hwy 1 and found a beautiful campground.... More

When you come to the north coast, hiking is a must. Wildflowers dotted the landscape-poppies, wild iris, morning glory, etc. The trails are well maintained, there is plenty of free parking, and the scenery is spectacular. When you overlook the Gualala Rive with the ocean in the background, you’d think you are inside a painting. Don’t miss walking everywhere. Be... More

It is dog friendly and they loved it. There are several trails to explore along with beautiful views. One of the trails takes you along some cliffs, while another goes down to the beach. The beach is huge and had giant crashing waves when I was there. You walk to the far end and get to the river. Also saw... More

The park is on both sides of Hwy 1. Go towards the shore for the rugged shore trail or take the exit on toward the river to take the river walk or to reach the camprground.

Well maintained park with nice trails, benches at vista points. Great place to reflect and enjoy the sea! Parking $7 a day. Pretty long distance from parking to the bluffs.

This is a beautiful park with access to both the ocean and the river beaches. It's a great place to take the dogs (but please keep them on leash). There are treacherous currents and waves, but sitting on the beach watching them is a relaxing way to spend a few hours. The walk from the parking area to the beach... More
