Stunning views and easy hiking trails. We just went for the day and paid the $15 fee. Well worth it for the views. Clean bathrooms are available.

Went to the state park to have late lunch and we regret not coming earlier. The Chilean Seabass was so simple, fresh and delicious. We also had the lobster pasta which was good too. My friend wanted to come for a second round but we...More

Staying at marriott coast villas within walking distance to park and beach walk because parking cost way too much for a walk on the beach

Our favorite time to come is when summer is over and the crowds are gone. The beach is a beautiful place to walk for miles. You can walk on the cliffs and overlook the beach or on the sand. There is a great little restaurant...More

If you want to have a nice picnic or take a stroll on the beach time this is a great spot to stop .. It wasn’t busy and it was beautiful.

We went to several beaches and the historic homes. Nice area to swim or walk the beach. The parks are well accessed but you do have to pay for parking.

Love the beach but hate the crowds.....You'll feel like everyone had to work the day you went to the beach here. Beautiful scenery and wonder location that cant be beat.

I always keep my eyes open for non-campers who shouldn't be walking along the campsites that we stay in, and we never saw anyone walking that didn't look like a fellow camper. Everyone said hello and or looked at you face to... More

Not sure if you got the answer you're looking for, but the hike-in to the campsite, from the beach area is about five to ten minutes. The campsites are up on the bluffs looking over the beach and pacific coast highway, so... More

Please confirm with a state park ranger, but there are picnic spaces on the cliff areas over the beach. I believe they do allow for a small propane grill but please confirm with the park staff.
