The Redwood Empire includes a number of state and national parks with magnificent groves of old-growth coastal redwoods. Campers at Gold Bluffs Beach Campground in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park are next to a long stretch of empty beach. Other attractions await around the Redwood Empire.
Gold Bluffs Beach Campground is beside the beach in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, north of Eureka. To reach the campground visitors drive 6 miles out a dusty, gravel Davison Road, but once on the coast, visitors can walk for miles along the beach and rarely see another person. A small herd of wild Roosevelt elk wanders in the meadows nearby. The nearby Fern Canyon Trail is a wonderful experience, not to be missed.
Gold Bluffs Beach Campground has 26 campsites for tents only. No trailers of any kind are allowed on Davison Road. Vehicles are limited to a width of 8 feet. The access road is rather bumpy. There is one Hike & Bike camp at Gold Bluffs Beach Campground. Permits for the campground are issued at Kutchel Visitors Center in Orick and the Crescent City Visitor Information Center.
