William’s Grove has two group sites for 40 and 60 people, respectively, open mid-May through September, which can be combined for large parties. These sites are very close to the South Fork Eel, making swimming or fishing an easy activity. There is also a bridge during the summer months, which provides access to backcountry trails.

This campground is simply incredible. If you can round up a big group of family or friends, do it.

The ancient redwoods and the easy access to the beautiful Eel River make for a magical adventure. Plus the campground offers massive grills and tables (at both sites), which is really special for a big group gathering. Get both sites if you can!

Fair warning, even though you are in the middle of woods and nowhere near anyone else, we had the 10pm quiet time curfew strictly enforced by an angry ranger (at 10:05pm).

Williams Grove Campground is surrounded by some of the biggest, oldest trees in America. Their majestic nature is best summed up by our friendly park ranger: "this is God's country".

Situated on the Avenue of the Giants, this campground might be the best large group campground in all of California. There are two sites (40 person and 60 person) with sprawling places to lay your tent throughout the forest and near the riverside. If you can, book both!

The riverside is a great place to lounge about through the daytime, and on both sides of the river there are great trails for a hike or a run through the forest.

When the eel river has a good flow, this is an excellent place for a paddleboarding or kayaking adventure.
