About Redwood Creek Picnic Area Beach in Orick, California

Redwood Creek Beach is located at the mouth of Redwood Creek about two miles south of the town of Orick in northern Humboldt County. This day-use picnic area is part of Redwood National Park and has a large parking area, clean facilities, and access to a sandy driftwood-covered beach. The National Park’s Thomas H. Kuchel Visitor Center is adjacent to the picnic area. It has information on destinations and activities throughout the area and interesting exhibits on display. Redwood Creek Beach is a great spot to stop and enjoy when passing through this section of Highway 101. A little farther south on the 101 you’ll find the visitor center and bookstore for Humboldt Lagoons State Park. Across Redwood Creek to the north is the little-known Orick Fishing Access where you can find a similar beach and few tourists.
