Description

For those who want to guarantee themselves a Castle Rock Campground spot after a long hike, the Waterman Gap Trail Camp in Castle Rock State Park offers six reservable primitive campsites tucked within a redwood forest nine miles from the overnight parking lot. Packing in water is encouraged, as this campground has a limited supply of water. Fires are not permitted, although gas stoves are allowed. The Waterman Gap Trail is closed during the winter months.

My friend and I hiked the Skyline to the Sea trail starting at Castle Rock State Park and ending at Waddell Beach. This took us 32 miles over 3 days and 2 nights. We camped at Waterman Gap Trail Camp on our first night there. It was peaceful and quiet. We actually went in January so the forest was wet and happy. On the third day of the hike we passed the waterfalls known as Berry Creek Falls. I would do again in a heartbeat :)
