Rocky Creek is a spectacular ocean-front park on a forested bluff overlooking the ocean. Offshore rocks provide spectacular wave action in storms and are nesting areas for birds and sea lions and harbor seals. The viewpoint is an official Whale Spoken Here site for watching gray whales.
Lands were purchased from private owners, and a gift from the U. S. Government, between 1926 and 1954. The original park developments were made by the Civilian Conservation Corps between 1934 and 1936.
