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 very nice park with trails for hiking along river and to ocean beach. Good way to clear your head of distractions.

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

A beautiful, yet very dangerous beach. The "sleeper waves" can be treacherous. When you walk this beach - never turn your back on the ocean - and don't throw sticks into the water for your dog to retrieve... just enjoy the area, but show it the respect it demands...

We love this beach; lots of wildlife, driftwood, and sand. It's a bit of a walk from the parking lot, but often nearly deserted. Great views of the mouth of the Gualala River and the beach from the hills above the beach. Also a good starting point to hike south along the otherwise private Sea Ranch coastline

It was so beautiful and peaceful sitting on the bluff by the ocean. I tried to search for whales at the whale-watching point, but was unsuccessful. Great view of Gualala across the river. I didn't walk the trail to the beach, but I would've if I had time. A great place to meet with God.

Spent a sunrise hour and a half walking down from Gualala and then out to the beach. Park is a gem, fields of wild grass, cypress and pine groves, cliffs above the beach and scrub-covered dunes. Even the Sea Ranch golf course fences seem to belong. A well-spent couple of hours.

It was nice to see this bit of property open to the public. Wished it had let you go all the way out to the head!
