Description

Another summer spot, this campground is generally open mid-April through Labor Day. Located just south of the visitor’s center on the Avenue of the Giants, it is located on a hillside with mixed forest. Although at 156 sites it clocks in as the largest campground in the park, the landscape (hilly, and far away from the road and parking lot) gives it a lot of privacy, particularly on the west side. Also has access to trails (as well as campground walking paths) and swimming nearby.

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!!!!!!!!
