Gualala Point Regional Park Campground
Gualala Point Regional Park fronts both the Gualala River and the Pacific Ocean with a beautiful mixture of coastal forest, meadows, and beach. The 195-acre park is especially popular with hikers who enjoy a variety of scenic vistas along the park's many trails. Dangerous surf makes the ocean beach unsafe for wading or swimming, but it is a great place for beach combing, whale watching, and picnicking.
Gualala Point Regional Park's campground has 23 forested campsites, including some walk-in tent sites. There is also a Hike & Bike campsite. The campground is along the Gualala River, making it susceptible to flooding during the rainy season. Mosquitoes can be a problem from late spring through summer. Previous campers have noted that the campground is rather dark among the trees, but well protected from ocean winds. They also mentioned repeatedly how nice the campground hosts and rangers were and how clean the bathrooms were.
