  • This is a large redwoods visitor with interpretive displays inside and outside the center. There is a short trail to the beach and a boardwalk to Redwood Creek. A picnic area is nearby with a long beach for day-long stays and even a tent only designated camping area at the North end of the beach, as I remember.
  • Great place to stop and get information from the rangers. They have maps of the area and are more than willing to make suggestions. Clean restrooms as well. You can walk out to the beach as well if you like.
