Salt Point State Park is one of our favorites on the coast north of San Francisco. The rock formations are just beautiful and especially awesome when the ocean waves break over them. There are lots of nice hiking paths. Don’t forget to bring your binoculars to watch all the sea life especially gulls, seals, and cormorants.

spent 3 nights there in early April. Had a nice campground with a self contained trailer. No water or electric hookups, but fire pit, picnic table and relatively flat parking area. There are flush toilets and a cold water outlet scattered around the campground. It was windy, as is often the case on the northern California coast. There is a... More

We couldn't find the waterfall on the beach or the rock arch that are on the website. There is plenty of poison oak along the trails, but the paths are decent. The beaches are really awesome and there are some really cool abalone shells and incredible carved out rocks.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Salt Point State Park on a weekday, so when we arrived, it was practically empty and we had our pick of the lot! At the check in booth there was a Park Ranger, the kindest woman you will ever meet. Our trip was missing a night of reservations and she went out of her... More

We went on President's Day. Amazingly, the park and beaches at Gerstle Cove, Stump a Beach, and Fisk Mill Cove were free of crowds and felt so secluded. So much beauty to behold! Just the way we liked it.

SALT POINT STATE PARK provides the following attractions: (1) SEALS. The seals enjoy residing on stone outcroppings just off the shore, sometimes alone, and sometimes in... More

I'm sure this place is magic, as most of the California coast north of LA is, but coming here for the first time and GPS highly unreliable along highway 1 you'll be lucky to find it without a sign to guide you in. You will see a large sign entering and exiting the park, along the highway, but if you... More

Quiet Campground...just the way I like it. Granted We were they in the middle of the week and it was raining when we arrive, but I'd rather do that then camp with tons of other people camping around me. It was clean through-out the park from what I saw. We didn't get to see anything else because we were only... More
