A view of the small car campground at Henry Coe State Park from the Sierra View campsite.
The views from the Sierra View campsite are spectacular. The town of Morgan Hill can be seen down below.
The car campground is adjacent to the Visitor Centre near the park entrance, and is the only part of the park open to regular motor vehicles. Most of the rest of Henry Coe State Park's 87,000 acres is backcountry open to hikers, bicyclists and horseback riders only. And there aren't all that many of any of those types of park users.
Nonetheless, one needs to be alert to possibility of occasional motor vehicles on roads inside the Park. These vehicles belong to Park rangers or people who are allowed to access non-Park properties within or adjacent to the Park.
