Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park is a state park of California, USA, and a component of the Redwood National and State Parks. The property is about half old-growth forest of coast redwoods and includes 8mi of wild Pacific coastline. The park was significantly expanded in 2002 with the 25000acre Mill Creek Addition. Originally established in 1925, the park is now 31261acre. The park was designated part of the California Coast Ranges International Biosphere Reserve in 1983.Proposals for closureA proposal to close a portion of this park placed it on the list of 48 California state parks proposed for closure in January 2008 by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as part of a deficit reduction program. The decision was rescinded following public outcry. However, in May 2011 the park was one of 70 state parks threatened with closure. In October 2011 the National Park Service agreed to provisionally take over management of Del Norte Coast Redwoods for one year.

  • Fabulous, magical place full of sleeping giants! It is a spread out area full of beautiful gigantic trees. Great hiking everywhere or just drive through slowly (no, seriously, take a hike!) The trees are indescribably huge. There are too many trails to choose from, each with its own view of paradise!
  • Pretty area but closed for season. Online it said open 24 hours. Quite misleading and a bummer when pulling in to camp. Good thing Jedediah was open.
  • My friends and I came for a final hurrah before college started again, and I have to say this was a flawless vacation. Hiking trail were is a reasonable driving or walking distance, the park rangers were very friendly and changed our campsite upon request. The fact that this camp site is right by the ocean in Cresent city makes the trip worth it on its own. Beautiful beach with smooth sand and a lot of yummy seafood places to eat at. 10/10 would recommend.
  • Where the redwoods meet the ocean I love del Norte county , my family was very welcomed by this loving community. The camping was excellent with brisk fresh waters and creeks and beautiful forests with the tallest redwoods in the country. I will recommend this to families and ask ppl really.
  • The huge trees were amazing, beautiful place to visit.
