Nicest place in Ft Bragg

Very clean and nice spot. Enjoyed our one night stay on a hold over as we travelled. Friends tell us all the time to check it out and that it’s the nicest place in Ft. Bragg. Haven’t been many other places in town but so far it tops them all. Fire pits and WiFi were a nice feature as well.

Different but to be expected

Wasn’t impressed by the long term population that seems to be residing there. It was quiet though and over all a decent stay. We spent 4 days there. The WiFi sucked and they put us in the far back. Stay closer to the front if you can in the premium spots. We didn’t know the difference. Non premium is in the way back, no fire pits and spotty WiFi.

Great for over night

Stayed in parking lot for an over night stay heading up the coast. Safe, easy, cheep. 14.00 for parking lot around $30 for hook ups in grass area. Cute town.

Right in the trees

We checked out these grounds on our way to the Burlington campground as this site is just east off the same exit. While it might be an excellent place if you’re not too picky about sloping sites, we were very pleased to be staying at Burlington which ended up being nice and flat. Excellent facilities otherwise

Amazing litte spot

Great spot … hasn't been really crowded when I have been there the past month..

On Paper Great But...

Hypothetically this place looks great on the internet and when you first arrive it appears clean but sit back and really look around and watch what’s going on. A lot of coming and going at all hours, transient signs by the river, full timers hiding out only coming out at night, something going on here. Lots of talk when checking in about “smoke” and growing. Yeah… not again.

Not that great

Bunch of trimigrants or transients living here and it’s creepy. Weirdos walking around all hours of night and not cool with the family. Will never be back here again but plan on suiting the redwoods more often. Just don’t let them out you in the back if you do stay. Oh and where we were it’s 30 amp not 50 if that matters.

Redwood magic

This is a must-stop if you enjoy foresty camping in the trees. Threaded throughout the giant redwoods, this campground is just a hop skip and a jump away from the avenue of the giants. Towering trees cast shadows at all times of day—dress warm! Coin operated showers and clean restrooms were very comfortable and the best of all campgrounds we enjoyed on this trip. Byo firewood if you count on having a campfire—it’s damp. Don’t skip this campground, it was one of our most beloved stays

Full hook ups and walk into town!

Super quiet on a Monday only 3 other RV’s there. Walked around Ferndale and had great Mexican food. The coffee shop in town was super cool and cozy.
