We absolutely enjoyed staying at this RV park. As several reviewer’s; mentioned it’s a great location to explore the area of Bodega Bay surroundings. I would highly recommend hiking the Jenner Headlands Trail, Pomo Canyon Trail and for a less strenuous hike, the Kortum Trail from Shell Beach. In addition to the other comments, we found the bird population to be extraordinaire. Due to C19 the campground is currently closed, once it opens you, are required to reserve a space online. We will definitely stay here again. ￼
Location is everything here. You're in Bodega Bay, which is simply stunning, and across the dunes to the west is the might Pacific. For $35 a night, you can't beat the oceanfront access that this place provides. That said, as a die-hard tent camper, I was disappointed that my encampment was encircled by a solid ring of RV's and trailers. I mean, you might as well be camping in a parking lot. That said, if you look as simply as your low-far access point to explore Sonoma's beautiful seaside, then you can't go wrong. Brace for the howling winds at night!
This site is all about location. You are right on Bodega Bay. But that also means the wind is fierce. So while I have tent camped here it not something I would do again unless there were no other choices. The sites have tables and fire rings but they are really meant for trailers & RVS. We were there in the fall and when it started raining our tent was soon in a puddle!
But the location is great for fishing or kayaking in the Bay or access to hiking at Bodega Head. Also remember to see if the Bodega Marine Lab is open for a tour. Very few days and times open but if you hit it right it is worth a visit. The other great thing about location is that you can walk down to where the fishing boats come in and get a fresh catch for dinner.
Nothing fancy here but it can work.
I'm your looking to explore Bodega Bay and the surrounding area this is a great camp ground to stay in. Clean, quiet and easily accessible. But you need reservations.
Bodega Bay's Westside Regional Park is a great place to stay as a base camp for exploring the Sonoma Coast. Situated by the Bodega Bay yacht harbor, this is a dry camp facility managed by Sonoma County Regional Parks, and is a great alternative to the more popular and always crowded Doran State Beach campground. There are well situated and spacious tent and RV sites, both back-in and pull-thru. The campground has very easy access to the bay's water edge to explore. Each site has a large fire ring and picnic table. Bathrooms and showers are at each end of the campground, and a dump station is onsite too. Generator curfew is 8PM - 8AM which is great! Just a few minutes off Hwy 1, this is a fantastic launch pad for exploring the southern part of the very beautiful Sonoma Coast by car, motorcycle and bicycle (worthy road and touring bicycles recommended). Hiking, kayaking and beach exploration are all around. The mouth of the Russian River is close by and is another beautiful area to check out. Just know the weather, even in the summer, is generally cool and foggy mornings are the norm.
