This oceanfront park in the northwest corner of Sonoma County borders the Gualala River and Mendocino County. Located on both sides of Highway 1, the park features an expansive beach and estuary, where the river meets the sea, and a small, forested campground along the river. Trails connect the beach and campground to coastal bluffs and to The Sea Ranch community just to the south. 

The park is popular with day hikers, beachcombers, picnickers, birders and whale-watchers, yet is rarely crowded. A visitors center is open most weekends and includes information on North Coast history, Native Americans, the Gualala River, and the marine environment. Seasonal fishing is available on the Gualala River.


Gualala Point Regional Park features a small campground set among the Gualala River redwoods on the east side of Highway 1.
