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.

Elk often graze in the fields between the campground and the Drury Parkway. Grab one of the sites along the meadow near the campground entrance for the best views from your tent.

September is the best month for sunshine in the cooler, northern parts of the west coast

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.

The bear boxes are metal and only shut with a slam. Plan out your late night snack and beverage needs before 10pm.
