Nice clean campgrounds greenery everwhere
We stayed in one of the four cabins. Showers in the campground were hot and free. Beautiful location.
Nice state park near the amazing Redwoods National Park. Oftentimes if the national park is full you can find spots here. Camp itself is nice and overlooks the ocean.
Beautiful forest, dramatic coastline. What's not to like? You can take showers with quarters (often cold). Last time we we the bathrooms were extra filthy, but that's the exception rather than the norm.
Junior ranger programs, hikes, and activities are all throughout the area as well.
One of the most beautiful car camping grounds I have ever stayed in. We stayed in the Penn Creek campground which is tents and not RVs but there are RV sites in the neighboring campgrounds in the park.
Each site is tucked back in its own little green enclave, so even though the neighboring sites are close to you, you feel secluded.
We spent 2 nights, one at site 3, which was tucked back a little more than site 5 on our 2nd night ( we had to move sites because it’s popular in the summer and there wasn’t a site available 2 nights for our dates, so book early if you can)
We spent a day hiking through the grounds, our 11 year old daughter got to participate in the Junior Ranger Program, learning about the geology of the area. The Ranger helped us Ron identify some of the berries we’d seen along the path and which were edible.
We hiked down to Agate beach where you can collect Agate to take home (no other natural souvenirs are allowed).
Bathrooms with outlets, showers, potable water are easily accessible. Food lockers are at each campsite. Camp hosts were awesome and knowledgeable. Firewood was a little pricey at $8 per bundle, so you may want to bring your own or buy before you arrive as you are not allowed to gather firewood.
Great for families. I wish we could have stayed longer. It was incredible.
We stayed in abalone point campground. It was a small site, with fungi covered food locker. Banana slugs everywhere. It was kind of cool as we hadnt met banana slugs before, but overall not my favorite site.
Short hike to amazing ocean views- that was wonderful. We spent most of a day hanging out on a less teaveled lookout point watching the waves crash whoch was noce after driving theough the noght to get there.
Recently camped at the Agate Campground, spot 87, which was located at the top of the road towards the beach trail. It was a convenient and mysterious site. Mysterious because our tent was nestled in a sort-of-like hobbit hole nestled in the trees. The proximity of the showers/toilets were within 200ft of the site. The camp host was also in this area, and they sold wood; however, the wood we purchased was way too wet to burn. Showers are $1.00 for 10 minutes, which is plenty of time to clean up. There are flushing toilets with adequate toilet paper, but make sure to bring hand soap…it’s not here. The views are SPECTACULAR, and the overall inhale is worth the trip!
many things make this a favorite spot of mine. camp hosts are always helpful and aren’t in your business. Spots are all beautiful and haven’t really found a bad one yet. Showers and bathrooms are maintained Well. (coin op showers) well posted signs daily’s or high/low tide and activities in the area. a must see for anyone even thinking about visiting.
nice location and beautiful hiking trail overlooking the ocean. dump station at a rest area less than a mile away.
Beautiful scenery. I love that your right on the coast but have redwoods all around. The state park is well maintained.
This is one of the nicest and quietest California State Parks in the system. The individual sites are separated by foliage and everything is green. The walk to Agate Beach is a must, where you can find interesting drift wood and other interesting beachcombing stuff. Need to reserve your campsite early, however you might luck out if you just show up. The staff is very friendly.
