Russian Gulch State Park Campground

Russian Gulch State Park Campground Professional Review and Guide

"Thank God for F.D.R. and the New Deal, or we wouldn’t have Russian Gulch State Park and the soaring arched concrete bridge that spans the gulch. What a pretty little campground! Take a left just after the bridge, and circle down a curved one-lane access road to the campground in the canyon and the beach across the stream under the bridge. The beach is all white sandbars, narrow blue water, soaring black cliffs spotted white, and green headlands. There is safe swimming here, and an easy launch for kayaks or inflatables.

The campground threads its way up the ferned canyon, with sites on either side of the access road. Cozy, mossy, and primal—that’s what you feel tucked into a tent under the giant ferns, alders, redwoods, and hemlocks. Come here to sun on a safe beach. Fish for rockfish. Hike the Fern Canyon Trail. Hike the South Trail to Mendocino."
