I absolutely loved staying here! I was a bit disappointed that it wasn’t closer to the beach, and didn’t have a view of the beach, but it was still awesome, and a very short walk to the water. The campground was almost full when we got there in the late afternoon, but it was spacious and didn’t feel crowded. The fog rolled in pretty quickly that evening, and we woke up to a magical, misty view of the bluffs the next morning! It’s just a couple minute’s drive to the trail that goes to fern canyon!
This campground is beautiful, quiet, and clean! The bathroom facilities were clean and in working order, and they have a small store with all the essential camping supplies. It is in a great location, close to the beaches in Trinidad, just a few minutes from Patrick’s Point State Park, and 45 minutes from some awesome trails in the Redwoods. It’s also just down the road from an awesome restaurant, The Lighthouse Grill! I highly recommend camping here!
This campground was a great - and free! - place to stay! There aren’t very many campsites, but if you get there early, or go at a time of year when it’s not busy, it’s not hard to get a site. We went in the fall, and there was only one other site taken that night. It is right down the road from Castle lake, which is beautiful, and the hike up to Heart Lake and Castle Peak is one of my favorites in the area! On a clear day, you can see some of the mountains in Oregon!
