Orick: Coast camping

In Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, Gold Bluffs Beach (pictured; $35; 707/465-7335) lets you stake a tent between the Pacific and redwood trees; neighbors may include Roosevelt elk. Gold Bluffs opens in May; to camp before that, check out the park’s nearby Elk Prairie Campground ($35;, open year-round.
