Beautiful campground surrounded by redwoods and river

The trees are amazing and the river sparkling. Not to fear from the beach either. One of my favorite campgrounds.

Camping on the edge.

There is no place closer than Clam Beach to pitch a tent and watch the sunset from the ocean. We loved the ability to camp right on the beach with a beautiful wooden path walkway from camp we were more than pleased with this stop on our adventure.

Amazing

This is a surreal place. Stayed 2 nights. Tent camping spots were great everything was nicely maintained. Foot traffic was a bit heavy from noon-4pm. To stand amongst this beautiful trees it is very breathtaking. Hiking trails were great and maintained. The scouts trail was the busiest by far.

Nice little county park

Nice little campground in a Redwood Grove. Big stumps in the park remind you of the old giants. Sites are packed in, but laid out well. Sites have picnic table and fire ring.

Last site available

I would say this park is definitely geared more for those who have RV’s. It was a Friday at 2 pm and I got last site available. No trees, no grass, and the ground was so hard I had to soak ground to get stakes in for tent. It was pretty loud till at least midnight. There was a ton of dogs so if you don’t have one that’s trained I would suggest not taking it here. The bathrooms were kept clean. The river access is great and the day use space is nice with lots of picnics tables. You can pay with card at this place which was great cause I never carry cash.

Wonderful well maintained campground on the Oregon Coast.

Great hookups for campers, there is also a large tent area. A separate parking lot is available for cars and trailers. There are spectacular ocean views and trails.

OK for tents

The spots are best suited for trailers, with little dirt area to pitch a tent. The spaces are cramped if the area is full. There are two indoor single showers and men's and women's bathrooms (two stalls in the latter) in a facility on site. $25/night. Camp host was friendly and informative.

Beautiful

The campground was clean and had a lot to explore. We enjoyed seeing elk as we pulled in. We went on some nice walks around the pond and watched the otter swim in the water. Conveniently located near several nice beaches as well. Showers were basic but clean. The sites weren’t very private but overall we had a great time here. This was our second stay and we have liked it both times.

Spectacular 🥰

Can’t believe how gorgeous, this was my favorite part of my trip. Saw otters in the small lake🥰

Seemed like a nice spot

Was too full when we pulled in but seemed like a nice family campground in the woods. No cell service.

Was not able to find from the main road

No obvious signs for the campground, could not find

Nice campground in the woods

Close campsites, fill up quick in the summer. In the woods, only extended cell service which doesn’t work well. Picnic tables and fire pits.

Great campsites in the redwoods

Beautiful sites, some more spaced out that others. $20/night. Flush toilets, fire pit, and picnic tables. I got site 30 which was right next to the exit so a good amount of traffic but otherwise an amazing site in the trees! I had strong cell service through Verizon.

Awesome river front camping

Super cute little camp ground. 5 river front camp sites with fire pit & picnic table. Enough flat space to make set up easy. There are several more sites in the redwoods, just set back a bit from the river with lots of shade. We hit this spot mid week on a super clear sunny day. The river area has a tiny beach, lots of rocks. It’s open to public day use for $5, camping is first come first serve for $20. We were just going to stay 1 night, but we loved this little spot so much we stayed a 2nd. It’s fairly quiet, close to town. Clean bathrooms, no showers. Wood for sale for $5.

Pretty park in the trees

Nice amenities and staff, but very loud as the site we were in (96) was right next to highway 101.

Amazing place

Huge trees, slugs, and the ocean. Perfect campground. Out first day there we were mesmerized by the elk we saw. So beautiful. Definitely recommend if you love the redwoods.

Amazing campground

We camped with Rv,campsite were amazing with fireplace,shower and clean toilet

Amazing campground! Beautiful!

We loved this campground! We had site number 29 and think it is one of the best ones in the campground. The site was large enough to fit our 10x10 tent. It was also very close to being near the bathrooms without us being right next to them. We were right next to the prairie creek which was beautiful. The campground and bathrooms were clean, with soap provided as well as potable water. The showers were good as well, although it was hard to get hot water sometimes. We also camped here on the weekends when the rangers had their talks in the evenings. We highly recommend attending these! They are geared towards a younger audience, but they are fun to experience and learn more about the area you are in. This campsite also has plenty of access to amazing hikes. We hope to visit again!

The Name Says It All

Rosevelt Elk roam through the campground. They were obviously used to people. We stayed on the “meadow” side where the elk roam through your campsite. The “forest” side is quite dark as you are camping in the redwoods. We had full hook ups on the meadow side. I am not sure if the forest side had full hook ups. They have a small pond with a ton of polliwogs in it (end of June). No fish in the pond as a couple of otters came in and ate the all the fish. Close proximity to the southern end of Redwoods National Park and many California State Parks. All in all this was a once in a lifetime experience!

Gorgeous Views and beach access

Another great Northern Coastal Redwoods campground! This awesome site is located on bluffs right above Agate Beach which is accessed via a steep walking trail. Once on the beach you can enjoy searching for agates, shells, and other cool ocean finds, along with frequent wildlife viewing. We even saw a whale not 15 ft from the shore! The weather can of course be hit or miss on the coast, but despite it the Beauty of this coastal area still shines through. 

The campground is pleasant with large sites that include fire pits, picnic tables, and plenty of forested privacy. We had a blast cruising around the campground on our bikes.

Redwood Pleasantries

This is a very lovely campground clean of trash with quaint with cabins and campsites tucked between redwoods and Douglas fir trees. Campground looks lush and loved.

They offer cabins, RV and tent sites.

Additionally there is a Video Arcade, Horseshoe pit, dog park, celebration hall with board games/puzzles, a mini mart, playground, gazebo, and multiple bath/shower houses and laundry facilities.

They periodically have special events during the weekends. We lucked out with live music and wine tastings.

Incredibly close to town but still immersed in the woods.

Only negative is that it’s close to 101 and car traffic can be heard at times. However, there are many song birds around camp to make your stay pleasant.

Highly recommend!

Sand Beds

There are 9 sandy campsites with picnic tables and fire rings. There are two permanent vault toilets and a one clean portable are available. There is running water. Large pull through parking spots are convenient for campers/RVs.

Campsites are divided by logs and offer no privacy from each other. There is beach access from the campground. The beach is large with sand dunes, marsh, beach grass, and drift wood. Wooded hills and shrubs surround the campground.

3 stars due to proximity to freeway, you can see and hear vehicles; as well as lack of privacy. Also near a local airport, the campground directly under takeoff path.

Located near many great attractions and not far outside of town. 25 dollars a night makes this a cheap alternative to the Private and State Parks in the area that are often booked up.

Please leave the campsites cleaner than you found them.

Happy camping!

Big Ferns, Beautiful Views, and lots of Redwood Love

This is one of my all time favorite places to stay in the coastal redwoods! When we visited, it was quiet and peaceful. We were there during the week so we didn't get a lot of traffic. Felt like we had the place to ourselves. 

The trees provided us with plenty of shade and protection for the tiny rainstorm that came over us. 

The bathrooms were well cared for, the camp hosts were personable and very helpful with information on what to see. We ended up spending most of our time searching for serpentinite on agate beach.

not usually open

we stop to visit on foot now and then, especially if theres snow. i wish it was still available.

First to Review

wonderful river camping

the campground isaway from the river a bit, but once there, its wonderful. we used to swim there often or float in inner tubes from there to the bridge in town.

its ok

convenient beach camping. the health hazards of clam beach and moonstone beach due to contaminated streams is a bummer. the beach is often cold, windy and foggy but its pretty nice when the sun is shining.

right on the beach

decent little campground on the beach. convenient access to fern canyon and all the amazing trails and redwoods. cant wait to return.

a nice place to beat the heat

the campground is well shaded and next to a very clear and cold creek. the times ive visited, it has been deserted save for the occasional host. nice and quiet.

amazing views

patricks point offers some amazing views and camping opportunities. the coast is beautiful and offers agate hunting on the beach. you can visit a demonstration yurok village and hike along multiple trails within the park. just be sure to secure your valuables. people are known to break into vehicles if anything is left out in the open.
