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.

Excellent stay

This regional park campground ensures less competition for a site than state parks and is well worth it. Surrounded by thick redwoods, trails run off every campsite. Close proximity to neighboring sites, but numbers are so limited right now due to covid there were only two other parties staying here the night we stopped. Incredibly clean and well maintained grounds. Spacious coin operated showers, dark restrooms with flushing toilets, the highlight for us was definitely the sense of being submerged in nature while really only a short shoot off the main road. Curious raccoons come close at night and there are some very cool tent sites to walk out to that definitely get hit with the coastal breeze and road noise. The cool trees around those sites almost make up for that fact

Excellent midway stop

We took a breather on a longer drive from the north headed back toward San Francisco and we’re happy we did! Fort Bragg was very charming and like most sites off this road, it was a pretty direct shot towards the water. Perfect proximity to the water on the coastal side of the highway

Ocean Cove is one of our favorites

Ocean Cove is a private campground right off Highway one. The owners are very friendly and helpful and they also own the grocery store across from the campsites. The prices are good and it is very family friendly (including dogs). We try to get here once a year if possible. The views of the Pacific from the bluffs are just beautiful, and there are plenty of places to explore a short distance from the campgrounds. There are port-a-potties, coin operated showers, boat launch, fish cleaning station and potable water available. Tent, Trailer, or RV are welcome here.

Open grounds with a great view

For us this campground felt a bit more exposed to neighbors than we typically prefer though it’s sort of expected since the grounds are at the top of a hill. However, the view from site 2 over the lake was pretty. Porta potty and no showers, but a quiet night rest with lots of stars and a gorgeous drive in through a valley of vineyards

Small, private, fantastic

This campground is a private campground which means dogs are more than welcome! Theres approximately 30 sites, with a very short walk to a mile and half of coast line. There’s a coffee shop on site, bathrooms and showers. Campground has WiFi, if you’re into that kind of thing. Reservations are made up to a year in advance. Tess, the camp host was very sweet and helpful as well as the other staff I met! Highly recommend

Nicely laid out sites next to the river

We came for two nights in late November. The days are short and the canopy of the redwoods created a pitch black surrounding. I can imagine on a hot day the trees would create a desired coolness. The sites are laid out nicely so we didn’t feel like we were on top of each other despite that our site was sandwiched between two others. Everything was flat and the bathroom was very clean with flushing toilets and paid showers.

There is a great trail to the beach but expect a longer walk. Your camp fees cover parking at the beach access across the road.

There was no host on duty but there was an honor system for firewood with wheelbarrows to bring your wood back to your site.

Great base to fun hikes and the cute town of Gualala.

Great spontaneous trip.

Decided to take a spontaneous 1 day trip with the wife and pup. Landed a beautiful water front site with hook ups. Friendly people and clean park! We will definitely be going back.
