Things to Do

If you have an hour, enjoy a picnic lunch beside your car at Wilson Beach. Swimming is unsafe, but you can walk beside the glistening water, gaze at the sea stacks along the coast, watch pelicans and cormorants fishing in the surf.

If you have half a day, hike from the redwoods to the sea on the Damnation Creek Trail.

If you have a full day, hike Damnation Creek Trail in the morning and explore a stretch of the Coastal Trail in the afternoon. Watch the sunset at Crescent City Overlook before or after a fish dinner in Crescent City. Take an evening walk at Crescent Beach Overlook. On summer weekends, enjoy a campfire program at the campground.
