The vibe at Burlington Campground
Drop some Burlington Campground knowledge on us.
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.
