“Famous tide pool”
Rocky promontories, panoramic views, kelp-dotted coves, and the dramatic sounds of pounding surf; open grasslands, forested hills, pristine prairies, and pygmy forests- you can experience all of these coastal wonders within the Salt Point State Park. With 20 miles of hiking trails, over six miles of rugged coastline, and an underwater park, you can enjoy a variety of picnicking, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, skin and SCUBA diving, and camping. The weather can be changeable along the rugged Northern California Coast. Even summertime can be cool as fog hugs the coastline and ocean winds chill the air. We recommend layered clothing for your visit.
Spectacular whale and seal watching in Gerstle Cove. This park really lets you crawl right down to the tidal pools at low tide and poke around. Make sure you bring sunscreen and a hat - the sun is totally unrelenting with zero shade on the trails.
Stayed at the campground. Not a bad campground. Water, bathrooms, fire pit with grill. No showers. Fairly easy hike to beach, which is pretty but not a beach for hanging out and swimming. It's all boulders.
