Camp at Russian Gulch State Park

Russian Gulch SP - Search Nearby - Added by Brian Heifferon

Russian Gulch Campground offers a beautiful and nearby 5.4-mile hike to a 36-ft waterfall, the Devil's Punch Bowl and multiple sea caves to explore, and 27 secluded campsites with clean bathrooms and showers.

Just two miles north of Mendocino, you'll find this beautiful, well-maintained park that features a little bit of everything. The campsite is situated between a rugged beach and a stunning 36-ft waterfall, giving you plenty of easy and fun options.

This park is most well known for the heavily forested Russian Gulch Creek Canyon, and a headland that features the Devil’s Punch Bowl (a large, collapsed sea cave with churning water). The nearby beach offers swimming, tide pool exploring, skin diving, and rock fishing. Inland, of course, is the waterfall and miles of hiking trails. There is also a paved three-mile bicycle trail for those of you looking to explore on two wheels.

The park has nearly a mile and a half of ocean frontage; its craggy beauty rivals any point along California’s coast. In the spring, the park’s foggy headlands bloom with acres of wildflowers.

Reserve your campsite here.
