Brought my trailer her for the first time as an adult after many times tent camping at nearby Gerstle Cove as a child. Had a FANTASTIC time. Woodside campground is BY FAR the more beautiful of the two Salt Point campgrounds. Plenty of flat parking pads for rv campers, yet sites are thickly wooded and appropriately spaced to have an awesome tent camping experience as well. Take note that many of the nearby beaches have dangerous rip currents and aren’t exactly great for swimming or water play.
Tucked in the woods and yet minutes from the water! Great toilets, nice fire pits, family friendly
Woodside Campground is just east of of HWY 1 in Sonoma County. The sites are tucked on the hillside amongst mixed evergreen forests, redwoods, ferns, and oaks. The sites all have picnics tables with food lockers, large fire pits, and privacy. The campgrounds are lush and well spaced, giving campers their own slice of this Northern California paradise.
Numerous trails extend from the campsite. Notable destinations are a Pygmy Forest and a large native prairie. Information panels are scattered along Central Trail give crucial details on native plants.
A truly remarkable SP and Campground.
Spur of the moment camping worked out for me here. It was early August and some campgrounds were full, but this one had plenty of openings. Lots of sites for tents and RVs, lots of trees for privacy and sound insulation, and clean simple bathrooms. Of course the hiking opportunities around Salt Point State Park are pretty spectacular and the sights along Hwy 1 are great. I would give 5 stars but the camp host made himself pretty scarce and that was inconvenient.
