Coe Park is the largest state park in northern California of wild open spaces. The terrain of the park is rugged, varied and beautiful, with lofty ridges and steep canyons.
Once the home of Ohlone Indians, the park is now home to a fascinating variety of plants and animals, including the elusive Mountain Lion. Within Coe Park are the headwaters of Coyote Creek, long stretches of Pacheco and Orestimba creeks and a wilderness area.
The park is open year-round for hikers, mountain bikers, backpackers, equestrians, car campers, picnickers, photographers, and people who simply like to visit parks.
As of November 23rd, 2018 wood or charcoal campfires are allowed in provided fire rings at the main campground and Manzanita Point Group Camp. Plan ahead and bring a gas stove to cook with if needed. Ground Fires are never allowed at the park.
Dogs are allowed in the Coe Ranch campground, paved roads and one trail that connects the Visitor Center to the parking lot off of E. Dunne Ave. Dogs are not allowed at Manzanita Point, Blue Oak Horse Camp, and Poverty Flat Group Campsites. Dogs are also not allowed at the Hunting Hollow or Dowdy Ranch entrances or on any other trails within the park.
