Explore Mackerricher State Park

Beautiful beaches, tide pools, boardwalks, sunsets, and camping. Mackerricher State Park has a bit of everything for everybody.

Arrived an hour or so before sunset and had plenty of time to explore a ton of different things. Walked along the beach. We had it to ourselves mind you. Not another footprint in the sand. Strolled around the boardwalks out to the point. Walked down to the tide pools, and stayed for one of the most spectacular sunsets I've ever seen!

The park is right off of Highway 1 just north of Fort Bragg. Drive all the way down the main road and you'll come across signs for campgrounds and parking. Nice big parking lot with restrooms and easy access to the beach and all the viewpoints. 

Keep an eye out for whales and other wildlife as the boardwalks offer views in all directions!
