2021 Crab Season: Changes are in place for the 2021 Recreational Dungeness Crab Season, which opens on Nov. 6, 2021: The use of standard crab traps is temporarily prohibited between the Sonoma-Mendocino County line and Lopez Point on the Big Sur Coast, under newly established state regulations. Hoop nets and snares are still OK.

Campers: Campground reservations are required. First-come, first-served sites are not available and same-day, drop-in camping is not allowed.

Doran Regional Park features a wide, 2-mile stretch of beach on Bodega Bay and is ideal for walking, picnicking, playing in the sand, flying kites, surfing, and bird-watching. 

A recently renovated boat launch provides access to Bodega Harbor and Bodega Bay for fishing, kayaking, stand-up paddling, and kite surfing. A rock jetty on the west end of the park is a popular spot for fishing and exploring sea life.  

Camping

More than 120 tent and RV campsites are available year-round. 

Trails

Walk along the shoreline or through grassy dunes that connect with the  Bird Walk Coastal Access Trail

Electrical Vehicle Charging Station

An electric vehicle charging station is in the Cypress day-use parking lot. 

Accessibility

Accessible features include campsites and a small boardwalk. All-terrain wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Park staff will assist with the check-out/check-in process.
