    Trinidad, California

    Welcome to Emerald Forest Cabins & RV, nestled in the lush greenery near Trinidad, CA. This campground is a gem for those who love being surrounded by nature. Picture yourself camping under the towering redwoods, with the sound of the ocean waves not too far off. It's a beautiful spot, especially for tent campers who can enjoy more secluded sites enveloped by ferns and moss.

    Emerald Forest offers a variety of accommodations, including tent sites, RV spots, cabins, and even glamping options. The RV sites are equipped with full hookups, though some visitors have noted that they can be a bit close together. If you're in a tent, you'll find the spots more spread out and private.

    The campground has clean facilities, with bathrooms and showers that are well-maintained. Just remember to bring some quarters for the showers. There's also a small market on-site for any essentials you might need, and pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along.

    For those who enjoy a bit of adventure, the nearby beach and hiking trails offer plenty of opportunities to explore. A morning walk to town for coffee and scones from Beachcomber is a delightful way to start the day. And if you're into stargazing, the clear night skies here can be quite a treat.

    Overall, Emerald Forest Cabins & RV is a fantastic spot to unwind and soak in the natural beauty of Northern California. Whether you're here for a weekend getaway or a longer stay, you'll find plenty to love about this serene forest retreat.

The Six Rivers National Forest lies east of Eureka in northwestern California, stretching southward from the Oregon border for about 140 miles. U.S. 101, the famed "Redwood Highway," parallels the inland Forest along the coastline. The Forest is just east of the Redwood National Park.

Three miles southwest of Willow Creek lies the Brush Mountain Lookout tower, which, at 3,988 feet, provides a 360-degree view of the forest's sweeping canyons and valleys.
