Really a summertime campground spot, open from Memorial Day through October, this campground is located 5 miles west of the Avenue of the Giants. It is also located on an old homestead (which is really cool) and has 40 sites that range from completely in the redwoods or located on open meadow. Dip your toes into the nearby Albee Creek, or take a short 4 mile bike ride to the South Fork of the Eel for a swim, but be sure to check river and whitewater conditions before you make the trip. While all of the campgrounds are beautiful, this one is often cited as a favorite.

Albee Creek is about 5miles up on Mattole Road: filled with ruts and potholes, so it seems like you're heading somewhere less-than-awesome. But the campground is a great destination, and you'll be greeted with a campground host if you arrive before 8-10pm. Try to arrive before sunset. The sites are underneath redwood trees and overlook a huge open field with tall mountains in the background. The bathrooms/showers are well maintained and heated when it gets cold overnight. About .5 miles back down the road towards Hwy 101 is 'Big Trees' area where you can see some enormous redwoods. Worth the short walk or at least stopping by before you head off. A beautiful campground where everyone seems to be having a great time.

Albee Creek is a great little campground accessed via a bumpy but beautiful ride through old-growth redwood forest. We were towing a teardrop trailer, and though a sign said "trailers and RVs not advised," we and others made it just fine by taking it slow. The campground itself was clean and well-maintained. There are many sites under the redwoods but most seemed to offer little privacy. We were in site 22, facing the meadow, and had a beautiful view during sunset and sunrise as well as prime stargazing. Personally I found 22 and 23 best in terms of privacy and views, but site 25, though pretty open, backs right up to the meadow itself. The frogs from the creek sing you to sleep, and there were deer that visited the meadow in the evenings.

This is a nice campground, some of the sites are quite close together an offer little privacy, but I scoped out the ones that looked best: 13, 14, 16,20,22, 36. Some are under redwoods with ample shade, while others are on the meadow. Coyotes did wake us at dawn with yipping that went on for a lengthly amount of time, we didn't mind though and got up to see the sunrise. There is a trail beyond the meadow that horseback riders pass on throughout the day, and deer hang out in the meadow as well. There is access to the Eel River nearby which we enjoyed, and since dogs are not allowed on the trail, we walked down the road to the campground and that was a wonderful walk. Please note you do need quarters to take a shower.
