Big Trees Everywhere!

Clean, quiet campground nestled in the big trees. Friendly staff and a quick drive into the Santa Cruz beach communities.

Mount Madonna camping hideaway under redwoods

Enjoyed tent camping at mount Madonna. I was able to reserve a drive in tent campground one month out . Many miles of trails and excellent facilities.

Large and well-maintained with excellent nearby hiking

Great campground, stayed 4 nights in December. Highlights include sunrise views over the lake and hills with rolling fog, wild turkeys everywhere, smell of eucalyptus, warm showers, and scores of dedicated staff who genuinely care about this place. Sites are also nicely-spaced apart. (Though this…

Nice campsites, good location!

Camped with electricity and water, situated on a bluff near the ocean. Easy walking distance to the water, nice roomy campsites with fire rings and tables. Not too close to other campers.

Delightful beach camping

Absolutely wonderful spot to camp! Just a quick walk down the hill to the beach (there are stairs, so can’t pull a wagon as a heads up). Beach wasn’t busy and the waves aren’t too big.

Epic sunset views. Most campsites are quite big. Some trees and shade too. Super clean bathrooms.

Redwood camping

Entrance is a little nerve racking on your first visit, but once your at your site you can relax. Bathrooms are a little dated, no cell service but good WiFi if your close to the office.

Pleasant setting with some noise from the shooting range

I liked the trees, picnic tables, and fire rings at the sites. The sites were spaced nicely to allow for privacy. Frog Flat seemed a bit more secluded than the main camp. There was no water running at the site when I stayed there, but vault toilets were available. There is a nearby shooting range…

It's so quiet

We stayed at one of the hike into camp sites. The hike in isn't very far at all but it's separated with from the other campers that it creates a peaceful and private environment. There is a specific campsite that you can really hike into, that one is a 3 mile hike and you have to call ahead to…

I wouldn’t stay very long.

Campsite 10/11 are great if connected, with the only view in the place. Other sites are secluded but cornered off with not much view.

Bugs! Lots and lots of flies, wasps and mosquitos here. Keep your trash and cooking in your car to be safe, wasps will swarm quickly.

Fantastic

Got here on a Sunday night, and even though online they were full, they only had a dozen campers. At least 70 spots here, nice tent areas. Dispersed and lots of views. Bathrooms were ok, showers hot, but they were spread out. No generators allowed. Actually allowed pit fires, which surprised us…

Nice

Basically an upper parking lot for rv’s that are really close together and on pavement. Showers were good and hot but not really clean. Very quiet place midweek. Gate closes at 8pm though, so get here earlier.

Fun place, relaxed atmosphere

It’s a nice laid back area. People are friendly, weathers great, lots of activities for everyone. Nice trails to hike and towns not far away if you need anything.
