Slightly larger than Albee Creek with 57 sites, this campground is located next to the visitor’s center and is in a grove of second growth redwoods. Three sites are designated “hike-and-bike”, and the campground has a summer bridge across the river that provides access to hiking trails. It also has a nice proximity to the water if you are heading here in the summer: there is a nature trail just across the street that will take you to the river. This campground is open all year.

Convenient base on Avenue of the Giants, but is used by many RVs. Also, wetter than the SF bay area, so be prepared.

Stayed at site 25 for a couple nights. Lots of RVs and right by the road, but there was surprisingly little traffic and it wasn't too loud overnight. Right in the middle of Avenue of the Giants, close to Founders Grove and next to the main visitors center with an exhibit and lots of maps and helpful advice. I took my dog who was allowed in the site but not on any of the adjacent hiking trails. Worth stopping in Miranda for groceries, not too much in the smaller towns and Weott and Myers Flat

The quietest campground I've ever been in, though admittedly, it was February and rather rainy. So atmospheric in and amongst nature's cathedrals, just spectacular. The whole campground is very shady nestled amongst the redwoods which makes it deliciously cool in summer but a little chilly in winter.

Stayed at campsite 38 for just 1 night. I have to say, though the campground was beautiful and most other sites appeared flat, this specific site was on a steep hill and very uncomfortable to camp on. My other complaint was that there was no swimming hole, and while there was a path to access the river, by mid July even on a year with high rainfall, the water was barely calf deep. I would consider staying here again #1 if it were at a different site and #2 if it were earlier in the year before the low river and algae blooms set in. Otherwise a truly gorgeous setting providing easy access to the avenue of the giants. Just a few miles down the road from Founders and Women's Federation Grove, where I've heard the swimming is much better.

Camped here for 1 night in January during off-season (This is the only campground in Humboldt Redwoods State Park that is open all-year round) so there were plenty of open sites and the atmosphere was calm and quiet. Their bathrooms are very clean and brightly lit at night. Flush toilets, running water, mirrors, and showers make things convenient. I stayed at site #38 and like another reviewer mentioned, it was a bit on a slope but we positioned our heads on higher ground so it wasn't too bad to get a good night's rest. The campground is in the perfect spot to explore the gorgeous Avenue of the Giants and is located right next to the visitor center where you can pick up some pamphlets with the best spots to check out.
