We stayed in a cabin in the huckleberry campground. The cabins were nice, and each cabin has 2 double beds, a table, and a wood stove. It can get cold at night in the redwoods so the wood stove was great at night. Each campsite has a fire pit with a grill cover which made it easy to cook dinner. The sites are a decent size with lots of trees to climb on, hide in, and play on. You can get ‘add on’ packages with the cabins, which include things like sheets and pillows for the beds, propane lanterns, and cooking items.
This campsite is at a great location. You are right near the beach as well as close to grocery stores and restaurants. It can get pretty cold at night with the ocean right there.
- closeness to the beach, direct beach path when it's open
- Has some nice shaded campsites that offer some privacy (see cons)
- a 10 minute drive will get you to a grocery store, touristy area (Boardwalk or downtown Capitola), target, etc.
- Some sites are full sun or can get very hot
- the average site size is very small and a number of them are 'shared' sites, meaning there is no separation between your site and the one next to you (no tree, bushes, etc)
- lots of tall grass (concern is ticks)
- the beach access from the campsite was closed as of June 2017. We either had to walk a poison oak lined 1/4 mile path or drive a few minutes to the day use area for the beach.
This site books up very fast due to its location.
