For amazing views, beautiful Redwood trees, and the coastline of the Pacific Ocean, check out the Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park. The park is filled with activities and amenities for campers and hikers alike. Fishing, historical and cultural sites, horseback riding, and windsurfing are some of the things aside from camping and hiking that visitors can do at this park.
Camping at Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park can be an enjoyable experience for you and your furry friend. There are a Northern loop and a Southern loop for the campgrounds, each with approximately 70 campsites. The sites include RV sites, tents, boat-in, hike in, and group campsites. Some sites are ADA accessible.
You can reserve a campsite online, and many come equipped with a picnic table and a food locker. The campground is in a location secluded from traffic, so you won't hear the humming of cars on the road as you try to enjoy nature. However, if you go for a hike, you might experience some car noise. When you're at the campsite, make sure you clean up immediately after your dog poops.
Pack enough plastic bags for your stay at the park and be mindful of your dog's behavior. Your pup should mind quiet hours and should not disrupt wildlife. Your dog is allowed at the Mill Creek Campground, but otherwise, dogs are not permitted on any park trails or at ranger-led programs.
There are many risks with the natural wildlife, such as bears, herds of elk, mountains lions, and other animals that would love to sniff out your furry domesticated friend, but not in a friendly way. Be sure to follow the rules and only allow your dog on trails that are permitted. You can find a list of trails that you and your pooch in the redwoods online.
