Situated at the mouth of the Eel River estuary, this county park offers unique views of driftwood covered beaches, backed by sea grass on small dunes and meadows with views of the hills in the background. The ever-changing driftwood scattered on the beach ranges from small bits to immense redwood trunks. The shores of the estuary range from muddy to sandy to rocky. The adjacent meadows are on private property with more than ample parking for crew and work trucks. This picturesque park, with it's varied textures, could be exactly what your picture needs.
