About Klamath Beach in Klamath, California

Klamath Beach is on a huge sand spit on the south side of the Klamath River mouth in Del Norte County. This driftwood-covered spit protects the entrance to the river making it safer for boating, fishing, kayaking, and even swimming (if you can handle the cold water temperature).

To get here, turn west on Klamath Beach Road from Highway 101 just south of the town of Klamath. You’ll find a shoulder parking where the road turns south and becomes Coastal Drive. At this location there is a gated road that leads right onto the beach. Walk past this gate and you’ll find some Native American structures signed as Yurok Ceremonial Grounds. They are great to look at but be careful around these delicate wooden buildings. The route from here sometimes gets choked off by high tide where the river bends behind the beach. Be prepared to take off your shoes and wade through water on your way to the beach. Once on the beach you can walk south for a ways or north to the mouth of the river.

Kamp Klamath RV Park & Campground and Klamath River RV Park are both along the road to the beach. Ironically however, the road to Klamath Beach is narrow and doesn’t have a good turn-around spot so RV’s and trailers are not allowed past the last campground.
