Prairie Creek State Park Now Accepting Online Reservations

Support Provided By

Gold Bluff Beach in Prairie Creek State Park contains some of the most wondrous views along the California coast. Nestled on a 10-mile stretch of beach within Redwoods National Park and 50 miles north of Eureka, according to its website the park offers "hiking, nature study, wildlife viewing, beach combing, picnicking, a visitor center with exhibits and a nature store." And yes, also the elk pictured above.

There are also 66 different camping sites, 21 of which are designated as "tent only." However, the sites have only been available for use on a first-come, first-served basis, meaning no one was ever 100% sure that a site would be open for them when they showed, particularly stressful during the camp's peak season. Luckily, that's now changed as the campground is taking online reservations during a portion of the year.

Here's the pertinent information:

Starting immediately Gold Bluff Beach Campground is available for reservations on www.reserveamerica.com or by phone at 1-800-444-7275. It will be available for reservations from May 22 - September 6 and will be first come-first serve during the rest of the year. Gold Bluff Beach campground is tent only and no trailers of any kind are allowed on Davison Road.

Reservations can be made up to seven months in advance.

The park is also "crumb clean," and visitors to the park are required -- according to the park rangers -- to watch a video about what this entails. For more information, or to start making your reservations, head on over to the official website.
