Fern canyon trail hike is loverly, goods along Little River. I have watched salmon go upstream after the rains in fall/winter. Peaceful, contemplative walk. Level and easy. There is a beautiful headlands walk in another area of the park. Ask me.

OK, there are two entrances to this park - one on the beach and one in the Pygmy Forest. (No there are no pygmies - it refers to the ancient small trees there).

Electronics Store
“I have always loved this store. It has always been a favorite stop. Whether you want to peer through the telescopes, find a super unique board game or bring a really cool souvenir home with you (educational toy, game or curio), this is the place to go. Staff is fantastic. My son and I always loved going here when he was growing up and I still love going there just to see what's new. :-)”

“Just a five minute drive from CasparCottage is Jughandle State Reserve, with two beautiful white sand pocket beaches and a hiking trail on the headlands overlooking stunning rock formations and the Pacific. ”

Grocery or Supermarket
“If you are stocking up Safeway in Fort Bragg may be your best bet. A bit farther of a drive from the cabin (~20-25 minutes) but certainly cheaper than Mendosa's or the smaller markets in the area.”

Bar
“A historic Inn and Gold Course with the bar being a local favorite and the food is prepared with great attention to detail with local fresh ingrediants.”
