Also open from April to October, Hamilton Barn is the one of two environmental campgrounds in the park (Baxter being the second). These sites are located 6 miles west of the Avenue of the Giants on Mattole road, and are known for their seclusion and privacy. All 3 sites are walk-in, and have no drinking water, but campers are supplied with a fire ring, bear locker, picnic table and pit toilet. Campsite #3 is about 50 yards from the parking lot, Campsite 4 is 150 yards, and campsite 5 is about 200 yards away. This is a great spot to really enjoy the park without the hustle and bustle of a more populated campground.

Super secluded. Had the entire campground to ourselves. Not a popular spot for families, HUGE plus for us! Went in July. Warm days, cool nights. Sun-ripened blackberries everywhere! Even saw a bear eating apples in a tree (near campsite 5). Rec: Campsite 4.
