The Redwood Empire includes a number of state and national parks with magnificent groves of old-growth coastal redwoods.
Nickel Creek Walk-in Campground has 5 tent-only sites and no drinking water. The little campground is nestled among the bushes near the mouth of Nickel Creek, only a few hundred feet from the ocean. The campground features a lush coastal environment and the beauty of nearby Enderts Beach. While the ½-mile approach hike is steep in places, the camping experience can be rewarding. Campers enjoy secluded beach walks, tide pool explorations, and panoramic views of the Pacific.
Nickel Creek campsites are first come, first served with a free permit obtained from the visitor center or at Redwood National Park Backcountry Camps. Visitors must pack out their garbage. Vault toilets are provided, but difficult to tolerate.
