This BLM protected coastal area is about as remote as one could get in Southern Humboldt County/Northern Mendicino Couty. This was hard to get to, off of Mattole Road along the Lost Coast Drive from Ferndale. We hit the north end of this recreation area located just outside of Petrolia. To get to the beach, I took Lighthouse Road and followed Conklin Creek to the Ocean. There is not a lighthouse nearby, so I do not know why the road is named Lighthouse Road.
If you want to camp or hike on a secluded on a beach, this would be the place. With rockin' waves, large seabirds, lots of kelp, this is the place to sit on a piece of driftwood, make a bonfire, and watch the sun go down.
