This is a nice park tucked away in the pine trees it is off the beaten path. It is a very enjoyable park with a path to the beach.
Humbug Mountain was a great stop, although a little smokey due to the fire in Brookings when we passed through. Snagged a great spot right on the creek, across from the showers/restrooms. Drinking water was one site over from us. A short walk to the beach, crossing under the highway, which was beautiful. I highly recommend it for those passing through on the Oregon Coast. Only downside was the highway noise, but that stopped after about 7:30 pm. Very convenient to Gold Beach, Rogue River, Port Orford, Bandon, Samuel Boardman Scenic Corridor, etc.
Humbug was great, it is between two mountains so protected from the ocean winds with a creek and short walk to the beach. The facilities were nice and camp sites clean. The best part though is the short walk to the beach. Took camp site 17 or 18 when we went it is right on the creek and one of the closer ones to the beach.
Lovely green area, lots to do in nature here (we met some people scuba diving). It’s a pretty small campground but it’s not usually full, there are two separate areas. The smaller one has some tent sites right along the water which were amazingly beautiful. There are hot showers, which were welcome after playing in the surf. The Humbug Mountain is a steep hike! This is pretty far from towns (but a wee bit close to the road) and is nicely in the national forests. Nice simple well taken care of place to stay.
Stopped here for a few hours just to set up camp for dinner. It was pretty bare bones but well-defined. I can see how the lack of privacy and proximity of the sites would be problematic on crowded nights.
Campground is right next to the highway, but it's quiet at night. It's very close to the beach, but protected from the wind in the campgrounds by the mountain. Beautiful scenery and hiking from the park up the mountain! We rate this campground a 9.
The views near any coastal campground are pretty fabulous and this is no exception. The campground was basic, nothing fancy about it. The sites were well maintained but offered little privacy from neighbors. Also, the road noise was quite prominent and I would think has an impact on getting a good nights sleep :( It would be a great place to spend a night on a trip up/down the coast, but no where I'd stay for days on end.
Good location close to the coast. Had a straight tent site which was basic as would be expected. The big negative is that the sites are close together so there isn't much privacy.
Ok for car camping, this campground provides a decent stopover point on the drive down the CA coast highway. It is fairly close to the highway, so you can hear highway traffic. Not recommended for relaxing tent camping. Good night's sleep for van camping or RV camping. Spots are close together but fairly well separated by trees and shrubs. Bathrooms clean, flush toilets, even hot water.
- short walk to the beach
- 6 mile round trip hike to the top of the mtn
