There is so much to do at this redwood beach park, you’ll have to schedule another vacation to do it all. Hiking, camping, biking, exploring a re-creation of an Indian village, picnicking, beachcombing, walking through a native plant garden. Plus, the dense spruce, fir, and hemlock stand guard over the dramatic coastline and make for a breathtaking view.
Most come here for the beach, with Abalone and Agate being local favorites. Campers, book tent or RV sites well in advance for busy summer weekends.
Also a notable destination is Wedding Rock, where for over a hundred years locals have come to get married, or get some local juju to inspire a marriage.
Don’t miss the reconstructed Yurok village. This includes traditional-style family houses, a sweathouse, a redwood canoe, and a dance house. Sumeg is the place name of a former Yurok seasonal fishing camp, not a permanent village. The trail through the native plant garden leads you to the village.
