    In general, dispersed camping is allowed outside of developed sites within the Six Rivers National Forest unless otherwise posted. Since potable water, toilets and other amenities are not available, be sure to bring adequate water or be prepared to purify natural water sources before drinking. Camp at least 200 feet from springs, water, meadows, trails, and at least 50 feet from roads. Camp at least a quarter-mile from designated campgrounds, picnic areas, trailheads, private property and state highways. Please remember: if you brought it in with you, then take it out when you leave (Pack It In/Pack It Out), this includes dismantling user-created site-modifications, such as fire rings.

    We are a working cannabis, veggie and herb farm, but currently due to the state of the industry, we don’t have many cannabis plants this season but we have so many other incredible plants that are growing all throughout the property. We welcome you to come tour it with one of us or on your own while you visit! We would love to tell you about our medicine and we are always happy to share.

    You’re welcome to explore our 200+ acres- hike the old logging roads, mountain bike and explore the property and gardens.

    At roughly 4500-5000ft elevation, there are several spots on the property that have the most incredible views, we will be happy to guide you to the spots and also have a property map if you want to explore the views on your own.

    Your campsite comes with a view of the Trinity Alps and the mountain ridges of Northern California and the Six Rivers National Forest. This is a very large clearing and there is plenty of room for vehicles and tents, and RV’s (please contact us before booking an RV or trailer, we want to make sure it will make it up the mountain) There is a fire pit which can be responsibly used when the fire risk is low. Wood provided.

    This is a primitive campsite, there is no electricity, water or facilities yet.

    We are in the mountains of NorCal, and there are chances you will encounter some wildlife. We occasionally get bears and other smaller animals who come to visit. It is IMPERATIVE that you keep your food and garbage locked up. We have a small lockbox at the campsite but please do not leave food or garbage any where an animal can get to it. While they are pretty friendly most times, and often scared of people, these bears are incredibly resourceful when it comes to getting their snacks and will not hesitate to destroy your tent or car while they search for your food!

    Our property is 15 minutes up from the highway on a gravel road. 4WD is highly recommended. Smaller, low riding vehicles do not usually fair well on the mountain. There is a locked community gate and a second locked gate at our property, we will provide you with access to both during your stay and ask that you always lock gates behind you.

    We ask that guests do not bring alcohol. Cannabis and other plant medicines are welcome if used responsibly. We will also have a welcome package waiting for you! (If you’re 21+)

    Dogs welcome but must be leashed at all times. We allow 2 friendly dogs max. FYI- We have several dogs on the property. They will be a large distance from your campsite, but may come say hi. If you aren’t comfortable with dogs, please let us know.

    We offer customized packages tailored to your needs and interests, if there’s something you’d like, please ask! We are well versed on farming, cannabis, plant medicine, and a few other fun things 😉. We also offer special ceremonial packages for Kambo and Aya. Please contact us for more info.

    This is our home. We love this land more than just about everything. We ask that you respect it fully and it will return the favor. This property has a long history intricately involved with the complicated past of Humboldt County and we’re happy to share our stories. It is truly magical here.

    We look forward to your visit!

        Crescent City, California

        ALERT: " Nickel Creek Camp CLOSED due to landslides and unsafe conditions." See Redwood National Park Alerts.

        Nickel Creek Campground has 5 tent-only sites and no drinking water. The little campground is nestled among the bushes near the mouth of Nickel Creek, only a few hundred feet from the ocean. The campground features a lush coastal environment and the beauty of nearby Enderts Beach. While the ½-mile approach hike is steep in places, the camping experience can be rewarding. Campers enjoy secluded beach walks, tide pool explorations, and panoramic views of the Pacific.

        Nickel Creek Campground has 5 first-come, first-served campsites. A free camping permit is obtained from the visitor center or at Redwood National Park Backcountry Camps. Visitors must pack out their garbage. Vault toilets are provided, but difficult to tolerate.
