Go Camping

All along the coastline of Sonoma County there are fantastic beaches for camping. One of the best places to go is the Sonoma Coast State Park. This area is marked by 17 miles of long sandy beaches, separated by rugged headlands, coves and natural arches. There are many campsites from which to choose, such as Wright’s Beach, where there are 27 developed sites adjacent to the beach with picnic tables and fire rings. Nearby is the Bodega Dunes Campground with 98 campsites, complete with hot showers and plumbing. Sonoma Coast State Park is a beautiful place to spend the night, and with so many spots along the ocean, there are plenty of options. The park is nestled along Hwy 1 between Jenner and Bodega Bay. Reservations are recommended. For more information on camping at the Sonoma Coast State Park, call (707) 875-3483 •reservamerica.com

Sugarloaf Ridge State Park is where the headwaters of the Sonoma Creek run through gorge and canyon, then across the meadow floor beneath scenic rock outcroppings. The park’s 2,700 acres includes 25 miles of trails for hiking and horseback riding. A self-guided nature trail along Sonoma Creek starts near the campground. Deer, raccoons and gray foxes are commonly seen in the park. From the 2,729-foot summit of Bald Mountain, on a clear day visitors can see views of the Sierra Nevada and the Golden Gate. Enjoy horseback riding, a 40” telescope at the Ferguson Observatory that can be rented, along with the group campground, for private parties through ReserveAmerica.com.camping-couple-mountain_$
