About Fort Ross Reef in Jenner, California

Fort Ross Reef is a scuba diving destination just offshore from Fort Ross State Historic Park. There is a day-use parking area at the southern end of the park that provides access to the beach and the reef. A steep trail drops down from the parking lot to the cove below. There isn’t a sandy beach at this part of the park. It’s a rocky remote shoreline best left for divers to navigate.

To get here, follow signs to Reef Campground off Highway 1 south of the main Fort Ross SHP entrance. After turning off the highway, the campground will be to the right and the Fort Ross Reef day-use area will be to the left. Check in with the campground entrance station to pay your entrance fee and to inquire about hours for the gate at the reef road entrance.
