The Vista Point picnic area at Tomales Bay State Park is dog-friendly. Dogs must be on a leash during their visit to the scenic picnic area. They are not allowed to stay alone in a vehicle, and they are not allowed on beaches or trails in the Park, including the trail from the picnic area. The Park asks that those planning a group outing make sure every member of their group is aware of the dog policy. Tomales Bay State Park is open from 8am to sunset. There is an $8 per vehicle entrance fee required for parking at Vista Point.
