“Outdoors & Recreation in McKinleyville, CA”

Very few parks in California allow camping right on the beach, but Clam Beach County Park is one of them. A wide and long stretch of flat shoreline, Clam Beach is part of a continuous ocean frontage that connects with Mad River Beach County Park to the south and Little River State Beach to the north. It's just minutes away from the town of McKinleyville, where all of your picnic, camping and beach supplies are available. There are two parking and camping areas, north and south, along the frontage road. The facilities are minimal but, hey, it's the beach! The ocean topology here creates a long flat wave slope suitable for surfing. Sand castles and kite flying are particularly popular on this beach as well. Day use is free and camping is first come/first serve basis. 12 Tent sites and 15 RV spaces. Horses allowed here.

Great beach to stretch your legs and walk the dogs (signs say on a leash but there were 3 doggies there already without theirs, all good dogs) on a road trip!
