Location:7 miles south of Crescent City on US 101.
Facilities:Campground with family, hike/bike, and 8 @di campsites, restrooms (é), picnic areas, trails, exhibits.
Activities:Camping, hiking, mountain biking.
Special Features:Established in 1929, Park combines spectacular Pacific coastline with dense stands of old-growth redwoods. A half-mile of sandy beach provides excellent tidepool viewing at low tide but is not safe for swimming. The bulk of the rocky sea coast is generally inaccessible except by Damnation and Footsteps Rock trails. Together, Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park, Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, and Redwood National Park (see separate entries) make up 45 percent of all the old-growth redwood forest remaining in California.
