Salt Point State Park includes the Kruse Rhododrendron Preserve, an underwater park where sea life is protected, Gerstle Cove, where divers and kayakers can be seen, hunting for abalone, and the tafoni rock formations. We had a wonderful camping trip here this Memorial Day weekend. View more photos from our trip here. One of my sons wrote a 4th grade, "California Report" on the park. Click here to read his report and learn more about the significant history of Salt Point State Park, and how it relates to the streets of San Francisco.
