This facility is under the jurisdiction of the Monterey Ranger District, Los Padres National Forest, U. S. Forest Service.

Willow Creek Road begins on the east side of Highway 1 a short distance south of the vista point. It provides seasonal access over 8.5 unpaved miles to Alder Creek Camp and Buckeye Trail.
