  • This place is absolutely gorgeous. I enjoyed it as much as Sand Harbor State Park in Tahoe. I had to keep following signs for additional parking, but it was definitely worth it. I didn't know it at the time, but the further down you park, the closer you are to China Cove and Gibson beach, the main attractions in my opinion. I didn't get to use the trails away from the coast, but the coastal trail is very well maintained, and an easy hike. There isn't a lot of hills or rough terrain or anything like that. I'm assuming it packs up on weekends, so if you can make it here on a weekday Gibson Beach is almost your own personal beach. This is such a beautiful place and I can't wait to come back.

Gibson Beach is almost your own personal beach, since there are few people. This is such a beautiful place and I can't wait to come back. Parking fills up early and it's $10, but you can typically park along the main road and take a longer walk.

  • A peaceful nature reserve. Parking is limited, so a visit during the week is best for smaller crowds. Hikes are very easy, with a couple options that have flat walkways and those with some short climbs. Nothing is overly difficult. The views are great from just about everywhere. Enjoy watching otters, harbor seals, sea lions and the occasional whales! Diving is even an option here as well ($25 fee).

  • A MUST VISIT for anyone visiting the area. If you want your choice of parking and no waiting, come early if it's the weekend, and even earlier if its also a holiday (like when they open the gates). Wonderful views and environment. Flushing toilets is a must, hiking sticks may help some, & bring your own water and snacks. Watch out for the poison oak, even on the hiking trails!!! Very well maintained, worth the $10 parking, and the cost helps pay for the maintenance. Great job, Calif State Parks!
