Tolowa Dunes State Park encompasses 4,000 acres of dune, forest, and a freshwater pond complex unique to the state of California. Surrounding the West Coast’s largest estuarine lagoon, Lake Earl Coastal Lagoon, located along the Pacific Flyway, provides habitat for tens of thousands of migratory and resident populations of waterfowl, raptors, shorebirds, and songbirds.
Recreational opportunities abound with over 27 miles of hiking, biking, equestrian trails, 11 miles of open beach and undeveloped shoreline, overnight walk-in and equestrian camping, Audubon bird watching programs, native plant and mushroom identification field seminars, and kayaking and canoeing on Lake Earl Coastal Lagoon and Dead Lake
The Tolowa Dunes Visitor Center is open during the summer months and many tours and presentations of Tolowa Dunes will meet at the visitor center.
