Navarro Beach in Albion, California

Navarro Beach is located at the mouth of the Navarro River in Mendocino County. It’s part of Navarro River Redwoods State Park, a long narrow park along the Navarro River south of the town of Albion. The beach is a driftwood-covered sand spit and river bank where the river pools up and sometimes breaches through to the ocean. This estuary is a popular kayaking and canoeing spot. Look for Arch of the Navarro, a rock arch that can be seen from the north end of the beach.

There are two campgrounds in this park. The Paul M. Dimmick Campground is a developed spot for camping and day-use up the river on Highway 128. The other camping spot is near the beach and has ten primitive spots that are first come first served.

There is a lot of history at this landing. In the late 1800’s this was the site of a booming lumber mill and a town called Navarro. An economic crash in 1893 killed the mill and the town. The earthquake of 1906, floods, and fires destroyed most of the structures. Only the Inn and the Company House remains. Efforts to maintain and save Captain Fletcher’s Inn are ongoing by a local non-profit. To get here from Highway 1, turn west on Navarro River Road just south of the bridge over the river. This road ends at the beach. Signs say that the road to the beach can be closed during wet weather.
