The park, established in 1929, is 6400 acres with approximately 50% oldgrowth coast redwood and 8 miles of wild coastline. The park is a WorldHeritage Site & Biosphere Preserve.

The mixed understory includes tanoak, madrone, red alder, big leaf maple,and California bay. Ground cover is dense with a wide range of species.The campground development is located in an area that was logged in the1920A?s. Vegetation is predominately red alder which will eventually giveway to fir and second growth redwood.

Wildlife is present in all areas. Salmon and steelhead spawn in MillCreek. Bobcat, coyote, bear, deer, squirrels and chipmunks are mostfrequently seen. Varied thrush, StellarA?s jays, hawks, great blue heronand dippers are common birds.

The topography is fairly steep with elevations from sea level to 1277A?.The predominant mountain range is oriented in a north-south directionwith steep cliffs adjacent to the Pacific Ocean, making the bulk of therocky sea coast generally inaccessible except by Damnation Trail andFootsteps Rock trail. Approximately 1/2 mile of sandy beach is known asWilson Beach or False Klamath Cove. This beach is unsafe for swimming dueto steep beach slope, rocky conditions and frequent rough seas and coldwater. Wilson Beach provides excellent tidepool opportunities at lowtide.
