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
Small campground in the redwoods along the river. Connects to the estuary and then you are at the ocean. Path to the beach takes yo under the highway. Also hiking across the road is a park with a small visitor center.
County park so it is well maintained and frankly I have never seen it packed. Even when not camping there I always stop at the picnic area for a hike to the ocean and a secluded beach.
There are wlak in tent sites. You park, unlaod and then move your care. The photos are of theses sites. If you go and do not get a tent site, try to get a site along the river.
Sites are both drive in and some are walk in. No RV hook ups but I see them there ( I am always with a tent) Coin showers are a plus.
The downside is you do hear the car noise from the road but there is little traffic at night.
You can launch a kayak or canoe onto the river from the campgrounds.
