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.

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

Stillwater Cove Regional Park on the northern Sonoma Coast features a picturesque crescent of beach, a small campground, and hiking trails through redwood forest and along ocean bluffs. 

The park is a popular spot for tidepooling, picnicking fishing, diving (abalone season is closed), and ocean kayaking. 

The historic, one-room Fort Ross Schoolhouse is located in the park's interior, moved there decades ago for preservation.

Camping

Stillwater Cove features an inland campground with 23 sites available for year-round reservation. 

Trails

Stillwater Cove offers more than 3 miles of trails. The 1.6-mile Canyon Trail loop follows Stockhoff Creek through a canyon of towering redwoods filled with ferns. Just north of the cove, Stillwater Bluff Trail curves above the rocky coastline and offers beautiful views of the Pacific.  

Parking

Parking is available at the day-use parking lot east of Highway 1. A pullout at the cove entrance allows for loading and unloading of small craft.
