Mackerricher State Park Campgrounds Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"What campground sits near 8 miles of beach, a beautiful headland, rolling dunes, lowland forest, a freshwater lake, and hundreds of snoozing harbor seals? MacKerricher State Park Campground is cheek to jowl with all of the above.
The park oﬀers hiking, cycling, surﬁng, canoeing, ﬁshing, and horseback riding. Thank Canadian-born dairy farmer Duncan MacKerricher, who bought the land for $1.25 an acre back in 1868 and whose family later deeded it to the great state of California, specifying that access to the land be free in perpetuity."
