  • There are two sections, north and south of lake Earl, with a beach walk of 11 miles between. This park has variety: forests, wetlands, ponds, sloughs, sand dunes and meadows ablaze in wildflowers...

  • This is the most wonderful place to go at sunset. I experienced the Glory of God and was ready to walk on the water and rise up into eternity just before sunset. You can spend many quiet hours here...

  • The most amazing area in Del Norte County. We take our dogs out there daily. It's like walking through an enchanted forest. Dogs get to swim along the way and play ball. And we get a nice long walk♥️💯🦮🦮🦮🦮 Highly recommended!
  • Amazing state park on the Pacific Ocean coastline to visit and explore! Come to watch birds or just enjoy a walk along the beach. Parking available but only open from dawn to dusk, according to state park signage. Easy to drive to following Google Maps.
