Gaviota State Park Entrance Sign

From the State Park website – The coastal bluffs at Gaviota State Park reveal a 500-foot-thick cross-section of the geographically extensive Monterey Formation. Offshore and inland, petroleum geologists have extensively explored underground for oil reservoirs within this rock sequence and probed its depths to understand the genesis of this important oil source. The naturally cemented, bluff faces resist wave erosion and are tilted to display multiple layers like the pages of a book. The geologic layers contain some nicely preserved fossils, even the complete skeleton of a halibut-like fish.”

Also from the site – Effective 6/14/2021 Gaviota State Park is under advisory for Southern California Edison’s Publis Safety Power Shutoffs. In the event of a complete power shutoff there will be no restroom or shower facilities. Chemical toilets would be provided. Those who have camping reservations will be contacted by ReserveCalifornia. Please be sure to check for updates https://www.sce.com/wildfire/psps   Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please contact channelcoastinfo@parks.ca.gov with any questions or concerns
