Goat Rock Beach in Jenner, California

Goat Rock Beach is located between Goat Rock Point and the Russian River along the Sonoma County shore near the town of Jenner. It’s a beautiful beach There are two parking lots for Goat Rock Beach. One is at the north end of Goat Rock Road with easy access to the sand spit at the mouth of the river and the other is right below Goat Rock itself (also reached from Goat Rock Road).

The ocean here is part of the Russian River State Marine Conservation Area so fishing is prohibited. The park and surrounding land is part of Sonoma Coast State Park. If the local colony of seals is present (typically at the river mouth) stay at least 50 yards back. Dogs are prohibited from the beach north of Goat Rock, however they are allowed on Blind Beach south of Goat Rock. The wave currents are too dangerous for swimming on the ocean, but you can swim on the river side if you can tolerate the cold water. Kayaks are available for rent in Jenner and it’s possible to kayak over to Goat Rock Beach from town. This is an excellent beachcombing shore with driftwood and other items to discover.
