Salt Point - Gerstle Cove South
Salt Point State Park, California

Gerstle Cove is the center of park activities at Salt Point, with a launch site for divers and kayakers. The park extends underwater as a marine reserve, protecting the rich submarine ecosystem. There is also a lovely campground just up the hill around a meadow in the Bishop pine forest. South of the cove the coasal prairie narrows down and pinches out.
