Caspar Headlands State Natural Reserve
No Drones Allowed in Park
- The noise and sight of drones can alter other people’s enjoyment of nature.
- A drone hovering nearby can feel intrusive and threatening.
- Drones can capture photographs and video without someone’s permission.
- Drones mimic the behavior of predatory birds and can frighten wildlife.
For these reasons State Park units in the Sonoma-Mendocino Coast District do not allow launching, landing or the operation of drones on State Park property.
Caspar Headland State Natural Reserve is located on the Pacific Coast in Mendocino County approximately 4 miles north of the town of Mendocino. The reserve is shared by a residential community in Caspar South, which lies on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Bordering the reserve to the north is Caspar Beach and RV Campground, and further north the town of Caspar. State Natural Reserves have outstanding or unusual natural or scenic values. This Reserve contains a small strip of rugged coastline featured sculpted rocks, wildflowers and surf.
Drive South on Point Cabrillo Rd., past the RV Campground then turn right on Caspar Drive to Headlands Drive. Parking is outside the reserve on Caspar Drive. Access to the reserve can be arranged prior to visiting by obtaining an entry permit from the Mendocino Sector Office.
The weather can be changeable; layered clothing is recommended.
