Bodega Dunes in Bodega Bay, California

Bodega Dunes is a large state park campground and coastal dunes structure in the town of Bodega Bay. The beach at Bodega Dunes is vast and remote so beachcombers will be delighted to spend a day out here.

A long walk south on the beach leads to Mussel Point and a very hidden spot. Walking north on the beach leads to South Salmon Creek Beach. There are many trails through the dunes. All are open to hikers and some are open to horseback riders, but consult park maps to know where you are going.

For those that don’t plan to camp, the Bodega Dunes day-use parking lot is at the end of a windy paved road just inside the park entrance gate. An accessible path and boardwalk leads to a viewing platform and an elevated ramp to the beach.

The entrance road to Bodega Dunes is on Highway 1 just north of Bodega Bay. The beach, the dunes, and the campground are all part of Sonoma Coast State Park.
