Westport-Union Landing State Beach Campground

DO NOT Miss the View!!!

Westport-Union Landing State Beach was one of the 70 parks that were to close in July 2012! However, a local native tribe saved it from closure. The road that runs through the park is crumbling right over the cliffs. Abalone Point Campground has been closed.

The campground is located north of Fort Bragg on Highway 1 and a few miles north of Westport. The campground had that deserted look to it! The road was crumbling right over the cliffs. It was a little eerie!

I found it a little bittersweet too! On one hand there is the preservation and protection of this land for future generations and to do this with little to no monies. On the other hand Mother Nature is trying to take back the naturalness of this land. It requires a find balance at times!

The campground overlooks the ocean and the views are IMPRESSIVE! I would have loved to stay and see the sun set here. I am sure the fog puts on quite a show some mornings.

The Big Buzzards were there hanging out though!

We drove through Westport on the way to the campground. Westport and Union Landing were settled back in the day to supply lumber and railroad ties as well as Tan Oak bark to the schooners anchored offshore. Westport went from 20,000 residents in its hey day to a quiet town of about 400 residents today. I loved learning the history of a place.

BEAUTIFUL Vistas!!!
