Stillwater Cove Regional Park on the northern Sonoma Coast features a picturesque crescent of beach, a small campground, and hiking trails through redwood forest and along ocean bluffs.
The park is a popular spot for tidepooling, picnicking fishing, diving (abalone season is closed), and ocean kayaking.
The historic, one-room Fort Ross Schoolhouse is located in the park's interior, moved there decades ago for preservation.
Stillwater Cove features an inland campground with 23 sites available for year-round reservation.
Stillwater Cove offers more than 3 miles of trails. The 1.6-mile Canyon Trail loop follows Stockoff Creek through a canyon of towering redwoods filled with ferns. Just north of the cove, Stillwater Bluff Trail curves above the rocky coastline and offers beautiful views of the Pacific.
Parking is available at the day-use parking lot east of Highway 1. A pullout at the cove entrance allows for loading and unloading of small craft.
