“Fresh air too.”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

This is a happy place for us. Good for fishing. 101 is too close for a dog. More characters. . .OK. Immense dunes across the road, and a very big ocean.

“Nice stop”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

Nice place to stop and look around. Great for wildlife watching. Very peaceful. There is a hike we were unable to do that would be worth a look.

“only a view from the highway.”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

The lagoon is a nice sight from the highway but access is limited. I believe fishing is limited to the side away from the highway which looked like it was restricted to the homes on the far side.

“Lagoon on one side, ocean on the other”
Reviewed 14 July 2011

This is one of my favorite short stretches of road to drive along. It is unique as Freshwater Lagoon is on the east side, and the ocean beach is on the west side. Only the road separates the two.

As part of the Redwood National Park, you are allowed to take boats out onto the lagoon, and fishing is also allowed, although I have no idea what kind of fish people catch here. There is a rustic boat launch on the north end of the lagoon. There is plenty of parking alongside the road with lots of room for RVs. Overnight camping is prohibited, however,
