Tall trees meet the sea at Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park. Just south of Crescent City, Mill Creek Campground is the perfect basecamp for exploring this remote, 8-mile-long swath of coastline, as well as three other parks that make up the Redwood National and State Parks group. With up to 100 inches of rain a year, these North Coast parks grow the tallest trees in the world. They also protect 45 percent of Earth’s last remaining old-growth redwood forests.

Recreation

Fishing— Licensed anglers may catch only cutthroat trout and hatchery steelhead in the park tributaries of the Smith River. Mill Creek is closed to fishing part of the year.

Trails— The Damnation Trail and the California Coastal Trail are steep and strenuous. The Coastal Trail is closed to cyclists north of Crescent Beach Overlook. Mill Creek’s former mill site area is for day use only. Old logging roads form easy loops and out-and-back trails from the mill site parking lot. Observe all posted trail-use and “closed-area” signs. Wilson Beach on False Klamath Cove offers visitors a picnic area, wildlife watching, and tide pools.

Camping— Mill Creek Campground’s two loops have 143 sites without hookups.
