About Crab County Park Beach in Loleta, California

Crab County Park is a small Humboldt County Park with beach access at the mouth of the Eel River. This location is a tidal flat on the inside of the river estuary and it is protected from the ocean waves by dunes on a sandy spit that is part of the Eel River Wildlife Area. Unfortunately this park doesn’t have access to the ocean beach, but it has a great sandy beach on the estuary. This location is a popular bird-watching spot. It’s also a perfect put-in for kayaking and canoeing on the tidal waters of this estuary. Walkers and horseback riders can explore the Eel River shoreline north and south from the beach access. The parking area is small with room for only about four cars. Since there is little space for turning around, RV’s and trailers are prohibited. Crab County Park is located at the end of Cannibal Island Road due west of the small town of Loleta.
