Henry Cowell

Henry Cowell State Park

This site is only available after sunset when there is a scheduled star party. VIsitors are welcome, regular state park day use fees apply, please use the "iron ranger" if the kiosk is closed, or put your state park pass on the dashboard. if you aren't bringing a telescope, please park facing away from us to minimize headlightglare when you leave, thanks!


enter via the park's main entrance on highway 9 just south of Felton. There is no access to this part of the park from Graham Hill Road other than driving to Felton, turning left at 9, and a mile or so later, left into the park.

pay at the kiosk, continue straight to the main parking lot.

as always, we recommend arriving before its completely dark, maybe about 1 hour after sunset, and please no bright flashlights
