This is dry camping with flush toilets, showers, water, and dump station nearby. This park is beautifully located on the tip of the peninsula between Bodega Bay and Bodega Harbor! There are a variety of things to do and see in and around this coastal paradise. Fishing, hiking, boating, sightseeing, relaxing at the camp site, kite flying, windsurfing, whale watching (seasonal), and playing on the beach are all popular. We camp here several times a year ? especially when it gets hot in the Sacramento Valley! Having a quiet generator is a must (if you want to keep your neighbors happy). The sites are well spaced and vegetation makes some sites somewhat private. Reservations well in advance is a must although there are 19 first come first served sites.

We've camped here over the last 30-years in tents and now in our travel trailer. The owners of the park and its employees are local folks who are genuinely friendly and hard working individuals! I can't recommend this park enough. Many grass sites, full hookups, clean and quiet most of the time, swimming beach, lots of shade, small store, lots of things to do for the kids (playground) and adults, fishing at their private pond, all sorts of recreation in this picturesque area including hang gliding and R/C slope soaring on nearby Hat Creek Rim, hiking, biking, boating, golf, and sightseeing that includes views of Mt. Shasta and Lassen. A side trip up to the Forest Service Lookout at nearby Burney Mountain (a 20-mile drive from the park to the top of this 7,800 foot peak) will give you a 360 degree panoramic view of the world that few ever see (this is a 2-wheel drive dirt road but good ground clearance is advised). Hereford Ranch is a working cattle ranch so on rare occasions you get to observe cowboys (and cowgirls) working the cattle. Our kids went from toddlers to adulthood here and we've always felt the area was safe and secure (we never just let them run free throughout the park) and have never experienced vandalism or loss of property. Major summer holidays the RV Park fills so advanced reservations are advised.
