The vibe at Hamilton Barn Environmental Camp
Drop some Hamilton Barn Environmental Camp knowledge on us.
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.
Secluded and quiet campground, with just three sites total. #3 is nearest the parking area and composting pit toilet. #4 is also in the trees. #5 is furthest from the entrance and closest to the stream, but much smaller and wetter. Overall, if I camped here again, I'd pick #4. Keep in mind that you need to check in first at Albee Creek Campground kiosk to get the padlock number to open the gate to the access road, so don't show up too late in the day (or else you'll be locked out and unable to access the campsites, which are about a mile up and down a gravel road from the locked entrance gate, which is on the north side of the road, west of Albee Creek Campground and the Baxter Campground turn-off).
Really beautiful, private area with an easy, flat walk in. We chose site 4, but, next time, I think we'd go for site 3 as this was nearer the parking area, but still very private - set away down its own path. Site 5 - in the meadow - looked beautiful, but was a bit more of a shlep from the cars. The area really did feel remote - almost an hour's drive from the visitor centre (and wifi/ cell service, if that bothers you...), however, it was close to a lot of trails, and the old growth redwoods - a definite plus. We were there in mid-August and it was COLD at night (and wet, which we hadn't expected!) but warm in the day. Slightly more traffic noise than anticipated, from cars accessing trails, but otherwise peaceful.
