“Great beach”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Enjoyed the beach but no restrooms at Stump beach. A fairly easy trail to walk down. Quite a few steps, so not easy with a wagon, but not bad for walking.

“Stump Beach is gorgeous”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The sand is so beautiful and the rocky cliffs are great for photographs. You can walk hand in hand and run through the icy ocean waves. There are great cliffs to walk along at this location as well as Fisk Mill just a bit farther north.

“Trip to Salt Point State Park”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Completed a free diving class there. Saturday the ocean was calm and we had excellent visibilty under water. Sunday everything was changed - poor visibilty and the water was choppy and very cold. Lots of fish and abs there.

“Fantastic Views!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Once we found the correct entrance we could not believe the views of the cliffs. It sure was windy so tie down those hats. Saw some playful seals. The waves coming in and hitting the huge boulders was fantastic. Glad we decided to take the ride out to Salt Point

“Great camping, great park, great staff”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We arrived with no reservation (before Memorial Wkend) and were able to find a super campsite in the woods, across the highway from Gerstle Cove State Park. With the help of Jacque a superb CA state park assistant? we locked into the campsite of our choice, AND were directed to the wonderful cove and visitor center across at Gerstle. Both these spots are well worth a visit....and I cannot remember the Visitor's Center volunteer but she was wonderfully helpful with info on trails and tidal pools, etc. Jacque also directed us to the Fort Ross State Historic Site just nearby, and it was well worth the visit!! BUT, we have to say that California does a p___-poor job of highway signage in many cases...bad directional signs and not enough info. Shame on them. All those dollars for visiting but you either struggle to find or find more than was advertised on the highway! For instance, the Visitors Center at Gerstle Cove is well worth a visit and so is the cove but highway sign only speaks of campground, what? Bravo once again to staff and volunteers....without them the CA system would receive a much poorer rating. Bravo Jacque, young staff man also at the check in station, and the wonderful lady volunteer at the VC!
