Clam Beach County Park lies just off (Redwood) Highway 101 to the north of Arcata. It is a long stretch of fine golden sand backed by low sand dunes.
The beach here is a popular stopover for camping with parks for both RVs and tents. Facilities include plenty of picnic areas, firepits, and restrooms.
As the name might suggest, Clam beach is popular for clamming - the name comes from the abundant razor clams found here. There’s also beachcombing, wildlife viewing and horseback riding, with the Hammond Coastal Trail starting here.
