Surfwood Campground is part of a group of campgrounds at MacKerricher. When you book, find the correct site # on the campground map. Because of it's location close to the beach, it's also typically the most crowded. The sites are nestled amongst the trees, not actually along the beach. The bathrooms, water spigots, and picnic tables are okay but not great. And combined with the crowds, you might want to try Van Damme State Park just about 20min south. I didn't stay at the other campgrounds at MacKerricher, so look at the reviews there too.

You can definitely stop at MacKerricher during the day to see some tide pools, sea lions, and check out the beach, but I'd keep it to that.
