General Information

Marshlands of Anderson Marsh SHP
Copyright: - California State Parks
Marshlands of Anderson Marsh SHP
Description - Anderson Marsh State Historic Park contains 1,065 acres of oak woodland, grass-covered hills, and tule marsh at the southeast end of Clear Lake. The rich natural resources of the area were used by people of the Pomo tribe, who were among the finest basket-makers in North America. Archeologists have found Native American artifacts in the area that date back as much as 10,000 years. Some of the artifacts are on display in the Anderson Ranch House in the park.

Recreation - The park is also popular for bird watching, hiking and picnicking. The park has a popular blackberry festival in August.

Climate - Summers are generally mild. Fog is often encountered near the coastline, with sunny, warmer weather more common inland in the foothills. Winters are generally cool with considerable precipitation. Wear layers of clothing to accommodate cool to warm temperatures and good walking shoes. Rain protection should be included at any time of year.

Location - The park is located between Lower Lake and Clear Lake on Highway 53, north of Calistoga in the wine country.
