Pacific coast camping. Ahhhh. California's golden coastline of beauty. Rocky shorelines filled with wildlife & tide pools. Steep cliffs lead to hidden beaches, coves & caves. Moisture from the coastal air helps support the wild vegetation (along with poison oak). This area is home to the coastal redwood trees. Explore the redwood forested canyons as well as the shoreline.
