“Gorgeous, and dog friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

We were the only ones there on a winter Saturday. Our dog got across the creek that runs btwn the parking lot and the beach more easily than we did. It was beautiful, a gorgeous cove.

“Enjoyed Our Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

Went to the Park as an after thought and glad we did. Nice hiking trails, beach and ocean views. A lot to see for such a little state park. Make sure to drive out to the picnic area and view point on the bluffs.

“Engaging!”

Six years ago, my husband proposed to me here. We come back often. We love the tide pools and love the blow hole.

“Among the North Coast's Jewels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2011

Whether you are looking for a short bluff top walk to a unique ocean blow hole, a sheltered camp sight, rocky beach, or the exquisite fern canyon waterfall trail, Russian Gulch is one of the jewels of our endangered state park system, along with Hendy Woods, Van Damme, the Mendocino Headlands, Jughandle, Point Cabrillo and MacKericker. Visit them often and please let Governor Brown know you want them open and cared for.
