Enjoy the beaches and drive down the coast. Stop by Sandland Adventures in nearby Florence for a dune Buggy ride.

We made a quick stop on our way south from Crescent City. It's a very nice wide and flat beach. There were a few surfers, lots of people with dogs, a kite-driven skateboarder, and a nice long strand for walking.

LOL. I love seeing people (and dogs!) experience the ocean for the first time. There is almost never any serious surf here and the water is pretty shallow for a ways out, so it is very safe. The tide comes in and fills a depression...More

This beach has people on it everyday of the year. I have never seen it empty even when raining. Very easy to walk, sand is compact.

We meant to just stop at an overlook, but on the side of the road we found a trail that led out to the beach so we got out to check it out. The trail was lovely and the beach truly impressive! It's a nice...More

This is my second trip to the beach which my dog enjoys tremendously as he’s got plenty of room to roam free. Large walking beach with beautiful views.

We love coming here every year. The Beaches are clean, the sites are fantastic! Our kids can go for miles and enjoy the water without me having to worry.

Me and my daughter walked the beach here. Very plain and not very big, parking is convenient. It is nice to stop to see but would not spend a whole day here.

The closest might be across from the beach and down the road. I called some private camp grounds in Crescent City and some seem nice and some aren't. Always be prepared for cold weather at night. The Klamath tribe has a... More
