About Campbell Cove in Bodega Bay, California

Campbell Cove Beach is a sandy spot on Bodega Head just inside the entrance to Bodega Harbor in Bodega Bay, CA. The beach is a flat one so at low tide it can be quite large and at high tide it might be mostly underwater. Behind the parking lot there is a small pond in a bowl called “Hole in the Head.” A wooden boardwalk leads to the Hole with a viewing platform where you can check out the birds in this unique spot, just be aware that the Alfred Hitchcock movie The Birds was filmed in Bodega Bay. A sign here explains the history of Bodega Head and the mystery behind how the Hole was created (a proposed Nuclear Power Plant).

To get here from Highway 1, drive out Eastshore Road then turn right onto Bay Flat Road which becomes Westshore Road. Park in the parking lot (or just outside if it is closed) which is located where the road bends sharply before heading up the hill to Bodega Head. Campbell Cove Beach is part of Sonoma Coast State Park.
