Lost Coast Trip Report
These few interesting words, primitive, rugged and backcountry, may be your first clue that Sinkyone State Park may not be your average state park. When being warned to bring extra supplies in case the access road is washed out gives a good idea that this is a primitive park, offering little to no facilities. In fact, the Usal Beach Campground is the only one of the park's sites that you can drive to. Recognized early on as a fantastic location for reflection and meditation, this section of the Lost Coast remains unspoiled and far away from today’s beaten track.
