Van Damme State Park Beach and Pygmy Forest

Van Damme State Park Beach and Pygmy Forest: Accessible Nature Location on the Mendocino Coast

Van Damme State Park has a sheltered beach that is on a sharp bend directly off Highway One, and is one of the few beaches on the rugged coast that is level with the roadway, allowing visitors to reach the sand feasibly. Accessible restrooms are located at the south end of the parking lot. Van Damme also offers a very unique, quarter mile boardwalk through a pygmy forest. Soil conditions and the ocean influence have created a bonsai type forest in close proximity to some of the largest trees in the world. A tree with a quarter-inch trunk could be over sixty years old! The small beach is on Highway 1 opposite the entrance to the campground, and the Pygmy Forest trail is located 2.7 miles up Little River Airport Rd., just south of the park entrance.
