Great News!!!

Russian Gulch State Park in Mendocino County has been taken off the list of California State Parks to close July 1.

Our local Mendocino Area Park Association was working hard to keep it open and even submitted a proposal to take over its operation.  When it came down to it, some technicality regarding the water and sewage system made it so that MAPA couldn't assume operations and the state has decided to keep it open.

This is great news for all who enjoy hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, diving, and beautiful coastal headlands.  If you are a paddler and haven't paddled out of Russian Gulch, definitely put it on your must do list.
