If you are looking for a scenic hike then you can't go wrong with a walk through Praire Creek Redwood State Park. Beautiful scenery can be found on any number of trails throughout the park. I really enjoyed walks through the Revelation Trail and the Cathedral of Trees. If you are in the area and are searching for a pleasant... More

Plan on spending hours in amazement of the trees and hikes available along this roadway. About 25 miles south of Crescent City jump off Highway 101 and onto the Newton B. Drury Parkway, slow down and soak it all in. If your into hiking you will be in heaven as there are 30+ trails ranging from .1 to 11.4 miles... More

This is a beautiful redwood state park with wonderful camping, picnics, and hiking possibilities. We took one of the shorter hikes this time called The Revelation Trail, which is a nature trail. We also enjoyed watching an elk..

We were tucked away among the tall trees in a wonderful campsite that included plenty of room for our camper van plus a sitting area around a campfire and a picnic table. We found a shortcut to the restroom and showers, which were nicely organized. The field outside our wooded campground is often the place elk are sited, though we... More

We were unable to get reservations, so we stayed about 17 miles away at Klamath, CA. We took several day trips to check out the campground, and the surrounding attractions. The campsites are large, well shaded, and very clean. The have fire rings and picnic table. Nice bathrooms with coin showers. Reservations are not needed after labor day when it... More

There are places we are willing to go long distances to visit just because they are unique to our planet. My mom happened upon this one quite by accident. Just passing through after a family vacation in the 60's, while I expect I was in the back seat bored and causing trouble, my mom couldn't believe what was passing by... More

40 y/o father/husband: We stayed in the campground here and explored for two nights and a full day. The campground was beautiful and quiet, and situated right in the midst of the glorious trees. We attended two ranger programs which we all enjoyed, and were blown away by the gorgeous and humbling forest. 41 y/o mother/wife: This is a beautiful... More

We hiked the James Irvine - Gold Bluffs (Coastal Trail) - Miners Ridge loop (11.5 Miles, about 5-6 hours). This hike which leads through the Fern Canyon is completely inside the State Park. The variety is unparalleled - extensive old growth forest, a "hanging garden" canyon and about a mile on wide open ocean beach. The trails have some surprising... More

This has to be one of the most beautiful state parks in California. We drove out dirt Davidson Rd to Gold Bluffs Beach. No four wheel drive needed, just good sense. We walked into Fern Canyon. Not to be missed. Back at the beach, we saw seals, and a dolphin. In the meadow by the beachwe saw two male Roosevelt... More
