Fort Ross is a California State Historic Park showcasing a historic Russian-era fort compound designated a National Historic Landmark. Russians settled on the ancestral Kashia Pomo lands called Metini and the Kashia are still very much a part of the community today. Located 11 miles north of Jenner on scenic California Highway One, Fort Ross is surrounded by sandy beaches, panoramic coves, and redwood forests, with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Salt Point State Park, 8 miles north of Fort Ross, covers 6,000 acres on the coast of Northern California, with two campgrounds, 20 miles of hiking trails, and over 6 miles of rocky coastline. These destinations offer pristine landscapes, recreation and camping, fascinating history, underwater parks with fishing, shipwrecks, and scuba diving, and more. Fort Ross Conservancy is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit and California cooperating association that supports both parks.
