Looking to enjoy the beauty and wildlife of MacKerricher State Park without all of the other, well, humans? Friends, we’ve got you covered. If you don’t mind a walk (and we know you don’t!), you should absolutely check out the walk-in campgrounds. Here, there are 10 first come, first served campsites set back in the forest, steps away from the beach, and the walk ranges from a 30 second trip to 3 minutes (we knew you were up for it!). All the sites are lovely, but word on the street is that 7,8,9 and 10 provide the most seclusion and views of the ocean.

We camped here last Thanksgiving in the rain and we still had an absolutely incredible time. Ocean Views, and peace and quiet. <3

I cannot say enough about the walk-up sites. It's a 5-10 minute walk from the parking lot and almost all of the sites have their own separate entrance=total seclusion. You'll be surrounded by trees and can hear the ocean. Watch out for wildlife (duh)!

I just did a walk around the lake here and did a walk about through the walk in camps... My pick for seclusion are #2. Ended up tent camping in spot #9 in the group camping loop just past the ranger station which was great. great campground for all.

This is by far my favorite campground yet solely because I have been going here since I was around 3 years of age. It has EVERYTHING. It is by the gorgeous coast with blue skies and blue waters. There are tide pools everywhere. There are beautiful bluffs to take in the sights, sunrises, and sunsets. There is also a boardwalk that leads you to different ocea/rock formation look out points. This is an area you do not want to forget your camera. The campsites are very spacious and not crammed side by side. They have various campsite choices. The Rangers are extremely nice and hepful. There is a lake nearby with fishing. There are also large sand dunes a few miles down the road as well as downtown village with shoppes. The shoppes are one of my favorites too because they have the best breakfast, coffee and pastries as well as grocery stores, pharmacies, movie theathers, etc! Go Enjoy!
