Wright’s Beach Campground is located right on the beach at Sonoma Coast State Park.  The campground has 27 single-family (mixed use) campsites and each has a paved parking spur, table, fire ring and grill. Wright’s Beach campground has flush toilets, but no potable (drinking) water. Do not use spigots for your filling needs. Fill up your water tanks at Bodega Dunes prior to you arrival.  They campground also does not have showers, but campers can use the hot showers over at Bodega Dunes campground (about 5 miles to the south).

Our favorite Wright’s Beach campsites are 1-10 (all on the beach).

All campsites are reservable, and if the campground is full, the overflow area on either side of the kiosk may be used for self-contained vehicles on a first come, first served basis (one night only). Reservations are recommended on weekends, holidays and during the peak (summer) season.

Sonoma State Beach features coastland with beaches, reefs, coves, tide pools, headlands, and natural arches. With more than ten miles of shore, 5,000 acres, this state beach is one of the largest in the state. The park stretches from Bodega Head to the Russian River. There is a five-mile trail system in the dunes. The beach is home to one of California’s largest seal rookeries. In the winter, Bodega Head is one of the finest whale-watching sites on the North Coast.

    Wrights Beach does not have showers or dump station. They are located at the Bodega Dunes Campground, 5 miles South Hwy 1.

  5. Danielle says:

    How many, and which campsites are first come first served?

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Danielle,
      There are not any first-come, first-serve campsites at Wright Beach campground.
      When the campground is full, the overflow area on either side of the kiosk may be used for self-contained vehicles on a first come, first served basis (one night only).

  6. Samantha Schoettgen says:

    I’m trying to book on ReserveCalifornia within the 6 months and everything is red, indefinitely. I called and they don’t seem to know why. Does Wright’s Beach ever have a time period during which it’s first come first serve or do they close seasonally?

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Samantha,
      All Wrights Beach campsites are reservable, and if the campground is full, the overflow area on either side of the kiosk may be used for self-contained vehicles on a first come, first served basis (one night only). Reservations are recommended on weekends, holidays and during the peak (summer) season. The campground will fill up quickly – 6 months in advance. Not sure why ReserveCalifornia is showing ‘red’ (sold out) during winter months as usually there is some availability during the off season.

      1. Christi says:

        What is the booking window?

      2. Camp Ranger says:

        Hi Christi,
        Wrights Beach campground (Sonoma Coast State Park) reservations are handled by ReserveCalifronia.com. They operate on a 6-month window, so the first time you can try and make reservations is 6 months (to the day) prior to your day of arrival. For example, if you intend to arrive July 1, then the first day you can try and make reservations is on January 1 (8AM PST). Keep in mind that popular campgrounds will sell out quickly (within minutes) – especially in the summer and on weekends.

  7. David Beals says:

    None of the above listed links work. Wrights Beach isn’t listed on Reserve CA. You get redirected to other campgrounds.

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi David,
      Thanks for the heads up on the link. We updated the link for Wrights Beach campground (and Bodega Dunes campground) at Sonoma Coast State Park. After you click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button you’ll be directed to ReserveCalifornia. Once there, click on the Sonoma Coast State Park reservations button. Or you can click HERE to go direct.
