    Myers Flat, California

    Hidden Springs Campground in Humboldt Redwoods State Park is a gem tucked away near Myers Flat, CA. This place is perfect if you're looking to immerse yourself in nature. The campground is nestled among towering redwoods, offering a serene and peaceful setting. The Avenue of the Giants, a scenic drive that winds through the park, is right nearby and is a must-see.

    The campground has a variety of sites, each equipped with a picnic table, bear box, and fire pit. Some sites are more secluded, providing a good amount of privacy, while others are more open. The facilities include clean restrooms and showers, though they can get busy on weekends. There's also a sanitary dump and water hookups available.

    One thing to note is that the terrain can be a bit challenging. Some sites are built into hills, so be prepared for a bit of a hike to your spot. This can be a bit tricky if you're hauling a lot of gear, but it's worth it for the tranquility you'll find once you're settled in.

    Pets are welcome here, and you'll find plenty of spots to explore with your furry friends. Just keep an eye out for poison oak, which is prevalent in the area. Also, bring some mosquito repellent; those little pests can be quite a nuisance.

    For those who enjoy bird watching, the Stellar Jays are a common sight and quite entertaining. And if you're into stargazing, the clear nights offer a fantastic view of the stars.

    Overall, Hidden Springs Campground offers a great escape into nature with the convenience of modern amenities. Just remember to pack everything you need, as there aren't many stores nearby. Enjoy your stay among the giants!

    Samoa, California

    Samoa Boat Ramp County Park, near Samoa, CA, offers a unique camping experience with a mix of pros and cons. This spot is essentially a large parking lot with some fire pits and picnic tables scattered around. It's not the most secluded place, so don't expect much privacy. You might find people walking through your area, especially at night.

    The campground has some basic amenities like drinking water, toilets, and showers, though the showers might not always be open. Pets are welcome, and you can have a campfire, which is always a plus. However, there are no electric or sewer hookups, and you can't reserve a spot in advance—it's first-come, first-served.

    One of the standout features is the location. You're surrounded by water, and you can hear the ocean while looking at the towns across the bay. It's a great spot for boaters and kayakers. The views are pretty spectacular, and you can drive right up to the beach, which is a unique experience.

    Some visitors have mentioned that the campground is well-maintained, with clean restrooms and a friendly camp host. However, the area around Eureka has some issues with homelessness, which can make the place feel a bit sketchy at times. But overall, if you're looking for a basic, no-frills place to camp with easy access to the water, Samoa Boat Ramp County Park might just fit the bill. Just be prepared for a bit of noise and a lack of privacy.
