About Smith River

Encircled by some of California’s most spectacular scenery, Smith River sits close to the mouth of the Smith River, boasting fantastic fishing, with record-setting Chinook salmon and Steelhead.  Stay at the gateway to the Oregon Coast, with extreme Northern California lodging including Sea Escape Motel, just one mile from the border of the two states.  The motel comes complete with a private walking beach and ocean views, while Howonquet Lodge offers additional entertainment, like the onsite casino, restaurant and sports bar.  Nearby Pelican State Beach, meanwhile, offers the perfect location to get away from it all with seclusion and privacy.
