Quiet but near Florence

Largish( for a Forest Service camp) campground just north of Florence. Its just far enough off 101 that there is very little noise from the road. I got a really nice cozy private tent site on the C loop..the other loops looked to be more RV type ones. It was pretty quiet and had a nice hiking loop around the beautiful creek. Had a nice time later watching the bats do aerobatics catching their dinner at sunset..there is a large open space which makes this fun. Nice park, had not been here since my kid was a toddler..good memories

Love the trails

Great trails and views along the trails. Clean and quiet and rustic. Does have some electric sites and sites are roomy. It is not walking distance to the beach. No showers but regular bathrooms. We go here regularly and also do winter camp there too.

Surprisingly nice

Usually when I stay at a large campground I expect no privacy, and load campers. However I was very pleasantly surprised to find lush, dense vegetation that lended some privacy. The place was clean, well maintained, with good sized camp sites. I was able to set up a 7 person teepee tent, as well as a 3 person dome, with plenty of space away from the fire pit. There is a nice hiking trail connected to it, as well as Sutton lake a short distance away. Highly recommend. And it is $24 a night, little spendy for me.

Nice wooded campground

National Forest campground with a host in season, good bathrooms. Some campsites provide more tree cover and privacy than others. Fire rings and tables at sites. Great little picnic area as well!

Rustic, private

Although we didn’t have full hookups for our rv, this campground was everything we love about camping. It was private, wooded, had clean bathrooms and was quiet. It was also in a nice location to access sand dunes, sand boarding and ATV rentals. Also a beach really close.

Great for families!

I have been here many times wIth small children. There are several kid friendly trails and large open fields to play in, the bathrooms are kept clean by camp host and there is shallow creek access. Also beach access.

Group Camping

Sutton is probably in our top 2 or 3 campgrounds. We get the group site which is the D loop, and it has a sand hill in that loop, so it is fantastic for the kids. Close to Florence for the activities (Car Shows, Rhododendron Festival, City wide garage sale to name a few). The campground in clean and quiet.
