Naka Creek Falls is a beautiful waterfall. It’s located just up Naka Creek by trail from the Naka beach campsite, this is an unattended site right on the ocean shore, just north of Adams River Estuary. The first time l was there my boy and l walked for a bit, up Naka creek. We were following a black waterline. I assume it was for the logging camp that used to be at Naka creek. We turned around at a corner and then headed back home. We did not know of the falls or just how close we were to discovering them.

After we got home, I started to see what I could find out about Naka Creek, and to my surprise, l saw that if we had gone around that corner in the trail, we would have seen the falls. The next day we took another trip up there and found the falls, they are very impressive. You can walk behind the falls without getting wet, well at least not too wet.

Back at the beach, there is plenty of room for camping. A great gravel beach and lots of sea life. We always see whales, dolphins, seals, and sea lions here. The birdlife is pretty impressive and the sound of the ways rolling on the beach is like music. On the road in you are likely to see deer, elk, and bears along with grouse, funny little birds they are.
