We kayaked out to an island that was fascinating to explore. While kayaking on the estuary, we were surrounded by harbor seals. It was a wonderful experience, and the surrounding views were beautiful!

SPSP is our go to getaway when we need the comfort of a campfire ring. It always seems like the other campers are generally cool folks.

A classic place to amble and enjoy all the coast has to offer. It reminds me of Point Reyes. There are lots of good paths.

Camping was exquisite - you can see all of the stars at night, and the foxes will visit your campsite as soon as you go to your tent.

We wanted to go camping on the Sonoma coast so we started doing some research and asking around. Heard about salt point and it looked great. We decided to drive out without a reservation and see if we could find anything. When we arrived the sign said full so we asked the ranger if she had any recommendations. She actually... More

The sand is so beautiful and the rocky cliffs are great for photographs. You can walk hand in hand and run through the icy ocean waves. There are great cliffs to walk along at this location as well as Fisk Mill just a bit farther north.

Completed a free diving class there. Saturday the ocean was calm and we had excellent visibilty under water. Sunday everything was changed - poor visibilty and the water was choppy and very cold. Lots of fish and abs there.

Once we found the correct entrance we could not believe the views of the cliffs. It sure was windy so tie down those hats. Saw some playful seals. The waves coming in and hitting the huge boulders was fantastic. Glad we decided to take the ride out to Salt Point
