Enjoy an easy stroll through Fern Canyon, flourishing with lush ferns, flowing streams and towering redwoods in VAN DAMME State Park. It's easy to go back in time and relax in these beautiful surroundings. Get away from it all, while enjoying one of the most beautiful parts of the world just moments away from your room at the inn.
VAN DAMME State Park consists of 1,831 acres of beach and redwood forests. The beach is popular with divers and kayakers, while ten miles of trails along the fern-carpeted canyon of Little River is perfect for strolling and bicycling. The start of the trail is a paved road and wheelchair and baby stroller accessible.

Another unusual and interesting State Park awaits you, just turn East on Little River - Airport Road and follow the signs to the Pygmy Forest. The nutrient-poor, highly acidic clay hardpan soil is relatively inhospitable. As a result, the trees are dwarfed, some mature trees are barely waist-high even though they are hundreds of years old just like the towering redwoods in the middle of the park.
If your sport is golf or tennis, then Little River is for you! The Little River Inn features a 9 hole challenging regulation par 5 golf course, a tennis facility and day spa. If you're not hooked on golf yet, this is a great course to start on and the ocean views are stunning from the final hole! Click for other suggestions of What to Do in Little River.

Little River's Restaurants are amongst the best restaurants on the Mendocino Coast! Equally praised by food critics and locals that love good food.



During the 1860s a Flemish couple, the Van Dammes, settled here. The husband worked at the mill, and one of their sons, Charles, later moved down to the San Francisco Bay Area to work as an operator on the San Rafael/Richmond Ferry. Charles fondly remembered the beach at Little River as a favorite picnic spot of his youth, and he eventually returned to purchase 40 acres of this land. Upon his death, he deeded the land to the State for public use, and this deed became the foundation for Van Damme State Park.
