Sonoma Coast State Park
between the Russian River and Bodega Bay California


Sonoma Coast State Park runs almost continuously from the mouth of the Russian River to the dunes at Bodega Bay. It protects a beautiful stretch of coast, along parts of which the coast highway is right on the low clifftops.
