The vibe at Hidden Springs Campground
Drop some Hidden Springs Campground knowledge on us.
Hidden Springs is gorgeous! Heavily forested, better for tent camping than trailers, facilities are very nice. A few spots enter great group camping, but most are better for individual spots. It's also quite a ways to walk to the river for swimming and fishing (and involves crossing Avenue of the Giants). One of my favorite camping places!
Terrible experience camping here!!!! All camp sites we saw were really small. Our tent was literally 2 feet from the picnic table. After our young kids went to bed we tried to play a quiet card game at the table. Apparently talking isn't allowed after 10pm though because we had a sheriff (not even a park ranger) come over and tell us we needed to be quieter. So we finished up our game whispering as to make sure we didn't disturb anyone, then went to bed. The next day the Sheriff came back to tell us there had be another complaint about us at 2am. We explained that were asleep at 2am so there was no way it was us, but he didn't care at all and told us we had to pack up and leave. Our kids were so sad!! We will NEVER camp here again!!!!!!!!
As one would expect in a Redwoods camp there are loads of big, gorgeous redwoods at the campsite and all around. The South Fork Eel River is a short hike across CA254 (Avenue of the Giants) and at this time had lots of sandbars to relax on and fish or swim from. The campsite is massive. We were close to the entrance off of CA254 and unlike what the description says it was *not* quiet. We could hear every vehicle pass by. It seems like every other vehicle is either a Harley or a giant truck with knobby tires, so expect to be annoyed. Yet, each campsite is isolated enough that you can't hear or see squat from the neighboring campers. Weird, but yah! The bathrooms were *clean*. Cleanest I've seen in a SP. Short drive to the rest of the park.
