About Smith River
The small town of Smith River makes its home in extreme northwestern California, known for its natural, undisturbed beauty and charm. The actual Smith River flows right into the Pacific Ocean, and to the delight of fishermen, produces some of the largest Chinook Salmon and Steelhead around. Pelican State Beach lays claims to the state’s northernmost beach, with its grassy dunes and sandy beachfront. Clifford Kamph Memorial Park, meanwhile, overlooks the ocean with exceptional fishing and surfing.
