The Redwood Empire includes a number of state and national parks with magnificent groves of old-growth coastal redwoods.
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 near by 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 Bluff Beach Campground. Permits for the campground are issued at Kutchel Visitors Center in Orick and the Crescent City Visitor Information Center.
