Some other sights to see during a vacation at the park include two beaches with outlooks, Enderts Beach and Crescent Beach. The outlooks offer a view of the Pacific Ocean, with a possibility of seeing gray whales. Enderts Beach offers a low-tide viewing of tide pool creatures. The Klamath River outlook offers views of the grey whale migration and a beautiful array of seabirds. A 1/4-mile hike down onto the outlook offers an even better view.

The Coastal Drive offers a view of the Pacific Ocean for eight miles, along with passing a radar station from World War II. A binocular view from this road offers a look into the nesting of seabirds. The Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway goes straight through the giant redwood forests, with glances at Roosevelt Prairie, filled with grazing Roosevelt elk. A last drive on Davidson Road also offers a view of the elk, and another of one of the few waterfalls in the park, Trillium Falls.
