About Caspar State Beach in Mendocino, California

Caspar Headlands State Beach is in a deep cove called Caspar Anchorage in the small Mendocino Coast town of Caspar. The beach itself is a sandy spot sandwiched by the drainage of two different creeks, Doyle Creek and Caspar Creek. In the land between the creeks is an RV campground that is across the street from the beach. Caspar State Beach is safer for swimming than other beaches in the area, but the water is cold and conditions change so rip currents can still be present. North of the beach on the bluff there are hiking trails to explore that lead to coastal overlooks. You can find the trailhead next to an historic old white brick building on Caspar Road. South of the beach there is a small park on the headlands called Caspar Headlands State Natural Reserve that has great views of the ocean and Caspar Anchorage Cove. The town of Caspar is located about midway between the cities of Fort Bragg and Mendocino. To find the state beach, turn west on Point Cabrillo Drive off Highway 1 just south of Caspar.
