  • What can you say about the beautiful Pacific Ocean? Enjoyed walking the beach and seeing those majestic rocks standing so tall out of the water.

  • Lovely coastal views, board walk to the headlands and great access to tide pooling. Bicycle from here south to Fort Bragg on the old log haul road. The bicycle path gives you access to beaches that are more secluded than those close to auto access. Nice campground with walking trails. Its popularity requires booking reservations far in advance for camping during peak seasons. No charge for day visite a real plus.MacKerricher is THE must-see place near Fort Bragg.
  • Stately!! Hahaha, I couldn't help myself with that one!! The whole area is beautiful! I think there would have to be something seriously wrong with your psyche if you weren't in heaven up in this area even if your life is going bad at least you're in a beautiful place? And for those of you who've been what I've been through you know what I'm talking about. Listen to the ocean, listen to the birds, breathe the fresh air, look up at the tall trees and just be held by God!
