North Coast State Parks Overview
California State Parks on the North Coast include underwater preserves, parks, redwood forests, plant and wildlife reserves, state beaches, recreation areas, wilderness areas, reservoirs, historic parks & homes and lighthouses. Below you'll find a list of popular CA State Parks and ones we personally recommend from multiple old-growth Redwood Parks to the calm waters of Tomales Bay. Camping in California is a popular activity with most North Coast campgrounds offering beach camping, redwoods camping, RV parks and conveniences like flush toilets, running water and firewood.
An entry fee is required at almost all California State Parks. It may be beneficial to purchase a yearly California State Park Pass if planning to make multiple visits to CA State Parks. Several discounts are available including passes for Day Use, Veterans, Handicapped, Surfing, Seniors and more.
