Outdoors & Recreation


“Spend some time among the giants! Redwood National and State Parks encompass many miles of California’s northernmost coast. With old growth redwood forests, spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, plus beaches and rivers, there’s an endless supply of outdoor activities for all ages and abilities, from hiking and biking to paddling, fishing, and swimming. Several campgrounds with friendly rangers and camp hosts await eager LTVers for memorable stays. We stayed at dog-friendly Jedediah Smith Campground, but there are others such as Mill Creek, Elk Prairie, and Gold Bluffs Beach, plus several other nearby public campgrounds and private RV parks. Public campgrounds have showers, water fills, and dump stations.”

Nearby Attractions

“Be sure to stop at Trinidad, just south of the parks, for supplies, art galleries, wine tasting, and restaurants. Don’t miss Moonstone Beach and Big Lagoon county parks for coastal access with calm waters.”
