Getting Outdoors

Spending time in the great outdoors is something of luxury within our fast-paced society. RV camping at Navarro River Redwoods State Park is a fantastic way to slow down and breathe in the clean air surrounding you. Since the park is so close to the ocean, water activities are popular both in the Navarro River and the Pacific Ocean. During the summer months, swimming and wading along the Navarro River is a great way to cool off. Boating is allowed on the river; however, kayaks and canoes are the more common way to explore the river.

Be sure to pack your fishing gear on your rental motorhome so you can try your luck as an angler. Steelhead fishing is popular along the Navarro River within the park, but remember that catch-and-release rules do apply. All anglers must have a valid California fishing license with a steelhead card if you're 16 years or older. There are specific times throughout the year where you don't have to release your catch. Check with the park’s office for dates. When fishing in the park, you're required to use barbless hooks only.

Many RV campers choose to stay at state park campgrounds to be closer to nature and the wildlife that calls these parks home. Navarro River Redwoods State Park has an abundance of wildlife, including black-tailed deer, raccoons, beavers, and belted kingfishers. Bring along your camera or cell phone to snap some amazing photos of the park’s wildlife while you're exploring the park.

Exploring the Area

While camping at Navarro River Redwoods State Park, be sure to take some time and explore the area, including the Glass Beach located in MacKerricher State Park just outside of Fort Bragg. Sea glass is created by the years' worth of garbage that has been dumped along the coastline near the northern part of Fort Bragg. Thousands of visitors walk along the Glass Beach collecting sea glass, but collecting sea glass is prohibited on the section of the beach inside the park. The amount of sea glass left is greatly diminished, but this is still an amazing beach to see.

While near Mendocino, drop in and visit the Russian Gulch State Park where a 36-foot waterfall plunges into the redwoods below, creating a serene and breathtaking view. The three-mile canyon from which the park gets its name runs along the coastline and encompasses unspoiled beaches where you can bring a picnic and relax. Visitors to Russian Gulch State Park enjoy riding horses, biking, hiking, and kayaking.

An absolute must-see is the Point Arena Lighthouse and Museum in Point Arena. This lighthouse is about 130 miles north of San Francisco and is part of the Fort Point Group of lighthouses that have guided ships along the rocky coast for years. While no longer operational, the Point Arena Lighthouse is an iconic monument that draws thousands of visitors each year. While visiting the lighthouse, be sure to wander through the museum to learn about the intriguing history of this West Coast treasure.
