Water 360 degrees

For a boat ramp camping site near town, this place is special. Remote from town but water 360 degrees. You can hear the ocean while looking at the towns across the water. I didn't use the facilities but location is awesome.

Cramped sites

 I was so excited to be camping here. I wanted a campsite in Trinidad which would be central to all I wanted to do in the Redwoods. This campground seemed to check all my boxes, plus: CAMPING BY REDWOOD TREES!!! This was the clincher for me. There are a lot of redwood trees in the campground&…

Loooooved this campground. There's a meadow area for RVS and a forested area for smaller rvs/vans and tents. Some tent sites have electrical outlets, all tent sites have a spigot. BIG bathrooms with flush toilets, hot coin showers, laundry room. Laundry room has a soap machine AND a change machine.…

Off the beaten track but nice, safe, clean. $8 a night or $4 if you have an interagency pass. Large vault toilets. No water. There's a general store ~10 minutes away if you drive towards Shelter Cove. Bring your bug spray! Pretty quiet during the week but it filled up by Saturday.  Solo female…

Oasis in the Redwoods

Just returned from a long 4th of July weekend(amid all of the C19 pandemic craziness) with our family of 4 and had an absolute great stay. If you've been dreaming about what it's like to live, camp and sleep underneath the tallest trees in the world, then this a great and convenient place to…

  • Spacious site #146 - perfect for our 12 person + 6 person tent.  Great privacy here, complete with picnic table and fire ring (plus 2 friendly chipmunks and a clutch of blue birds) under the canopy of second generation Redwoods!
  • My wee littlest one standing atop a fellen wooden soldier that helped us cross the creek (for those less adventuresome, there's a bridge).
  • WOW!  These suckers are heavy!!! ;-)

Camp under the Redwoods with a view of the Pacific

I camped here many, many years ago. In fact, it was over two decades ago. We spent a night here as part of a road trip that took us up the Pacific Coast all the way to Seattle. I had just moved to California from the East Coast, and the sheer size of the country north of San Francisco (where I was…

Terrible staff, no river, and cameras in every corner

As you drive up, you wonder if you are lost because it is in a very sketchy neighborhood. You feel a little relief when you get to the gate and see that it is a well manicured entrance. I stayed here with my family for 3 days and from check-in I could not wait to leave from the moment I arrived.…
