  • Used to be run by the State Park service, but the locals run it now. Nice place to camp, and the people in charge consider it part of their home, so they show it lots of love.  more »
  • This is a super nice campground, and it was empty. That surprised me. I actually didn't stay cuz I travel alone and it was a bit too quiet, but the park was beautiful and I would recommend it to...  more »
  • Beautiful deep forest, riverside camping. Didn’t make Ferndale in one day so had to rest here for the night. $33 for seniors (pathetic $2 discount). Eel River, swimming hole, trails, an Alpine Jay to greet us at our picnic table in the morning. We’ll be back for a longer stay.
  • This place is truly magical! We usually go to Richardson Grove State Park, but they were sold out this year. So glad we went here instead! Bathrooms have power outlets and lights. Facilities are kept quite clean. Very short drive to any quick groceries at The Peg House across the street, or 1.5 miles south to Leggett Market for larger purchases. DEFINITELY buy the park firewood. It's cheaper ($8 vs. $15) and pretty much the same amount. A great watering/swimming hole is just south of the campsites, down the Eel River. A quick intertube ride from the bridge over a few fun rapids, or you can walk a trail to get there as well. Dog friendly, Family friendly, and comfortable.
