Description

Campground in a young redwood forest, sites with tables and firerings under the big trees. 20$ per night, watertaps near sites. Very quiet and not crowded. Like out of a fairytale!

Good alternative to the State/National Parks which were full. Many spaces available at this county park. Heavily shaded with many Redwood trees and very quiet at night. Close to the Redwoods State/National Park.

Awesome place in the redwoods! Very quiet and lots of spots. Price is okay and facilities are clean. We recommend it!

Truly a hidden gem. Close to highway and Walmart sure, but you would never know it. Huge trees, well spaced sites, creeks, small trails, quiet, not busy in Feb 2022.

I was excited about this place, but it didn't work for me. A couple of spots were available. The first was by a camp host playing loud techno, pass. The second was also by another camp host, we tentatively parked at the spot, I kept hearing some drunk guy yelling and was shocked to realize it was the second camp host yelling at us very loudly commenting sarcastically about our parking job (we wiggled our van in to have the best morning view) and then giving us a thumbs up while loudly yelling slurred words, "We're glad you're with us" while his friends laughed and their dogs barked. We left immediately and stayed at the Home Depot parking lot instead, where we slept great! The other camp spots away from hosts looked ok.. very small spots, not good for big RVs, no showers, campground feels a bit cramped and dark, but I suppose I'm spoiled as I live near Big Sur ;)

Awesome spot next to old redwoods. Stayed 3 nights here. May not be toilet paper in the early morning until restocked. Overall good time and close to town.

Amazing little campground! Sites are great. Close together, but separate by trees. Doesn’t feel too cramped. Beautiful walking paths through their own little redwood forest. I’m definitely trying to come back! I didn’t use the facilities, but I didn’t hear any complaints from neighbors. Very nice.

This is one of two county parks, both of which I stopped at. This one is closer to town, larger, and has trails. The sites are more spaced out and the young redwoods make it very shady (don't plan to rely on solar here!) There was one campsite for $30 that had hook-ups, the rest are $20.

The other county park is Ruby van Derwent park. It's about ten minutes away. Same prices and amenities, but much smaller and sites have basically no privacy. However, it is alongside a river and some sites are sunny.

Beautiful campground with tall red wood trees and amazing hiking trails. The camp host was so nice and friendly. He walks around all night to make sure there are no homeless camping. 10/10 showers are coming in the near future so check on that

It’s mid-August and all of the national/state park campgrounds are fully booked for weeks. This hidden gem has lots of spaces open mid-week. All are first-come-first-served and there are about 50 spots. $20/night. We boondock most of the time, but after a couple nights in the region camping next to shady characters, and seeing the stories of druggies farther south, we came here. And quickly added a 2nd night to explore more.

Camping amongst 100-year-old second-growth redwoods with trails all over the place. Old-growth stumps of 1000-year old trees tower 15 feet above you. This forest is covered with multiple species of huckleberries. It’s the national park camping experience in a $20-a-night county park.

Nice playground for kids. Many water spigots with hose bibs; RVs can refill here. Toilets. Fire ring and picnic table. Lots of level paved spaces for RVs, several pullouts with secluded tent clearings for the more rustic types. No electric or dump station, and it looks like you have to pack out your own trash.

This place is blissful!!
We're surrounded by Redwoods with a firepit and bench. Clean bathrooms here. 5 stars!

This place is heaven to a tree hugger. unfortunately the real stars are the stumps of great and mighty Redwoods that stood here before. Buy now they plat nanny or nurse to the newer generation. It is $20 to camp with water close, bathroom and trash nearby. While I was here there was a crew from the county panting and cleaning trails.
I'm getting a good AT&T voice and data signal. Highly recommend. ✌Dave

Camp in the Redwoods, all amenities, has a host, fog not uncommon,

Nice place to stay, one flush stall for men and one for women and a few Porto potties around too. Price increased to $20 in 2019, but is still cheaper than most of the other campsites around redwoods so I’d say it’s worth it

As described, really magical place. Especially good for kiddos. According to the county campground directory it is the last to fill up, as it has a lot of spots. First come first serve, cash or check.

Rate for a standard spot is now $20 a night for 2019, maximum 5 night stay. The full hookup site is $30 a night and has a maximum stay of 14 days.

Firewood is available for purchase on site. No showers.

Nice quiet place for $15 cold water and toilets. In the middle of the redwoods.

Exactly as described, showed up late on a Thursday night plenty of spots when other state campground were full, even on shoulder season. Next to park with playground and baseball field. Bathrooms clean enough, no locks on stall doors. Also porto-potties throughout campground. Nice walking trails.

As others have described, beautiful site with plenty of shade and space between pitches. We managed to find a space easily late on a weekend night although it was pretty full. Still $15 a night which seems great value for the location. Toilets aren't the cleanest but are well stocked and easily accessed. A truly great place to stay.

Pretty and tucked away. Was very empty when we arrived around 10 PM on a Friday. Can hear a little highway noise but campground is very quiet and clean. There are a lot of great and a few weird reviews on trip advisor… But we had a great time. There is one site with power hook up. $15 a day for regular site $20 a day for power.
