The park is home to many tree species including coastal redwoods, Sitka spruce, hemlock, pine, fir and red alder and wildflower meadows with a shoreline that consists of sandy beaches and sheer cliffs against the Pacific Ocean. It is located in Humboldt County.

  • One of my favorite places! The camping here is so great. The views are incredible. There's so much to do! You could spend a week here and not get bored. Highly recommend! If you're going to camp though, you need to book way in advance!
  • Absolutely beautiful location! It is a beautiful beach with easy access. It is never very crowded nor is it ever dirty. It is a great place to go exploring and to bring your pups! It is easy to locate from the road with lots of parking spots. This is by far one of California’s prettiest and cleanest beaches. You should put this place on your bucket list for sure! Also lots of cool seashells to find!
