The vibe at Elk Prairie Campground
Drop some Elk Prairie Campground knowledge on us.
There are few campsites adjacent to the fields where the Elk graze, but the most beautiful sites are the among the mossy trees. The 11.6 mile day hike along the James Irving trail to Fern Canyon and Gold Bluffs beach and then back along Miners Ridge Trail is spectacular. (see link below) Pack a lunch, hike to Fern Canyon, chill on the beach for a few hours and then hike back to camp through some of the most spectacular redwood trees you will ever see.
So many elk! So many hikes! And nice and cool during the hot months. It rained pretty heavily on us but our time was still incredible. Love the redwoods and this campground and park were amazing!
It was early in the season, so roads were closed due to downed redwoods, and the sites down by the river were pretty murky. I stayed up by the prairie and had a sweet morning view of fog and antlers from the male elk that live in the valley! Friendly camp host, too.
Report from Shirtless Steve
This park is a hikers dream
More then 75 miles of trails
Out of the 31 marked trails 15 are in the easy class
10 in the moderate class
6 in the moderate to strenuous class
But which ever hike you pick the joy of being and seeing
OLD-GROWTH REDWOODS well be a treat for
The whole family
Make sure you take the time to look at the trees
The best family trail is the 3.2 mile prairie creek trail
Revelation trail is my top pick 3/4 mile hike
Then there is James Irvine trail 4.5 out to Furn Canyon
And the coast.. the total loop is 12 miles. ( Furn Cayon is a must )
To many trails to tell you about. But every trail in the is worth hiking
Hope to see you.
