Wilson Creek Beach

September 3, 2014 Northern CA Beaches, Outdoors Comments Off on Wilson Creek Beach

One of the most accessible beaches in the area, this is one of those rare points where Highway 101 flirts with the ocean’s edge on the North Coast. The wide, sandy beach is not visited often, but is great for strolling and has some excellent tide pools at low tide. This beach is not swimmer-friendly. Restrooms and picnic tables.

Location: From Highway 101, 5.5 miles north of Klamath, take Wilson Creek Road west. Beach is at the end of the road.
