Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park

Search Klamath California

Seven miles south of Crescent City. A World Heritage Site & Biosphere Preserve, the park was established in 1929 covering 6,400 acres with approximately 50% old growth Redwoods and 8 miles of wild coastline. The mixed forest growth includes tanoak, madrone, red alder, big leaf maple and California bay. The campground development is located in an area that was logged in the 1920's. Vegetation is predominantly red alder, which will eventually give way to fir and second growth redwood. Wildlife is present in all areas. Salmon and steelhead spawn in Mill Creek. Bobcat, coyote, bear, and deer are frequently seen. Varied thrush, Stellar's jays, hawks, great blue heron and dippers are common birds seen here also. Approximately 1/2 mile of sandy beach is known as Wilson Beach or False Klamath Cove. This beach is unsafe for swimming due to steep beach slope, rocky conditions and frequent rough seas and cold water. Wilson Beach provides excellent tidepool opportunities at low tide.
