Sonoma Coast State Park

Park Overview

Wildland Fire Update (10/27/20):

Both Armstrong Redwoods SNR and Austin Creek SRA will be closed until sometime in 2021. We hope parts of Armstrong might be opened to docent guided fire walks in late spring but this timeframe is not confirmed. Please sign up to receive our enewsletter (at the top of webpage) to learn how you can volunteer for restoration activities in the months ahead. 

Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve started burning on the forest floor on the afternoon of 8/24/20. The fire slowly burned through the grove and did not affect structures or iconic trees. State Parks, CalFire, and local firefighters worked together to make the best possible decisions with respect to managing the fire for the park and the local community. 
We thank them for their expertise and dedication.

We are sad to say that Austin Creek State Recreation Area was also burned in the Walbridge Fire. The fire went through Bullfrog Pond Campground so there will be no camping available until further notice. 

The following chart shows the acreage burned in our parks in both the Walbridge and Meyers Fires. 

Both Parks will be closed until further notice. See superintendent's order. We really need the public to stay away at this time. Volunteer help and support will be needed after assessments are done and hazardous trees are removed. Right now we really need financial resources as ALL revenue generated at Armstrong Redwoods for Stewards' work has stopped (day-use fees, camping fees, visitor center sales).


While fires help forests to Renew • Revive • Regenerate,
Stewards needs YOUR HELP to welcome you back safely into your STATE PARKS!

Thank you so very much for your support!

CA State Parks for the information about park closures with respect to fires and Covid-19: 


Sonoma Coast State Park Sonoma Coast State Park (SP) is located between Jenner and Bodega Bay on Highway 1. This 10,000+ acre park was established in 1934 and includes over 19 miles of trails. It is actually a series of beaches separated by rock bluffs and headlands extending 17 miles from Bodega Head to Vista Trail 4 miles north of Jenner. The long sandy beaches below rugged headlands, a craggy coastline with natural rock arches and secluded coves are features that make this State Park one of California's most scenic attractions. Beachcombers, fishermen, sunbathers and picnickers can access the beach from more than a dozen points along the coast from Hwy. 1. The Rangers' Station is located on the north side of Salmon Creek on Hwy 1.
