Sonoma Coast State Park
Fire Recovery Update (1/16/21):
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.
Stewards' staff and State Park Volunteers are at work removing and processing down trees into firewood, restoring campsites and will soon be working on rebuilding burned fencing. Trails and hazardous conditions are also being assessed by State Parks. If you are interested in Volunteering follow the instructions on THIS PAGE of our website.
(day-use fees, camping fees, visitor center sales).
A SPECIAL FUND HAS BEEN SET UP FOR FIRE RECOVERY DONATIONS
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!\
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.
