Waddell Beach – Rancho Del Oso – Big Basin Redwoods State Park (SP)

3600 Highway 1, Davenport, California, United States


Waddell Creek and Rancho del Oso (a part of Big Basin Redwoods State Park) offer a variety of recreational opportunities including mountain biking. Six miles of Canyon Road (a graded dirt fire road) meanders along the course of Waddell Creek. A series of Backpack Trail Camps are spaced along the trail, with three being located within easy hiking distance from the Rancho del Oso park headquarters. There is also an Equestrian trail camp that (with reservations) allows riders to camp overnight with their horses. Waddell Beach, located across Highway 1 from the park entrance, is known worldwide as one of THE spots for windsurfing and kite surfing. The steady strong North West winds and good surf provide ideal conditions for this demanding sport. Launching from the tops of incoming waves the best windsurfers can complete full loops and continue on their way. With the strong winds and occasionally heavy surf, Waddell Beach is not recommended for novice wind surfers. Regular surfers and boogie boarders also find it an ideal spot to pursue their activities.
