Usal Beach Campground

Campground in Sinkyone Wilderness State Park

Access to this campsite is at the south end of the park from Hwy 1 (you can’t make reservations). Use bear canisters or keep food in your trunk. Look for giant elk feeding on the tall grass – they live behind sites 1 and 2 – and osprey by the creek’s mouth.

To get here, take the unpaved County Rd 431 north of Westport beginning from Hwy 1’s mile 90.88 and travel 6 miles up the coast to the campground. The road is graded yearly in late spring and is passable in summer via 2WD vehicles. Most sites are past the message board by the beach.
