About Russian River Redwood Camping
We have over an acre of waterfront land on the Russian River in Forestville CA.
It is set up as a recreational campground beneath the huge redwood trees.
It is located in the middle of the beautiful wine country between Steelhead Beach and Korbel Champagne Cellars. You can rent canoes at Burkes canoes, half mile east and you can rent bikes across the road.
There are nice stairs down to 2 beaches. One is a shallow one for the kiddies and the other is a deep hole, perfect for fishing and comes with a rope swing!
The camp is divided up into three main sections. The parking lot area has the Honey Bucket (toilet) and the firewood bin (site #6). Walk down a little hidden path and you'll find the central hub campground. Here is the outdoor shower, sink with table, fire pit, deck overlooking the Russian River, picnic tables and lounging area (site #'s 1, 2, 3). Walk down the convenient stairs to the beaches and you have sites right on the water (site#'s 4, 5).
#1 "Room with a View" is by far the most impressive site.....hidden steps away from the main campground but with dramatic view overlooking the river. It has a fire pit, table and BBQ. 2-3 tents, 2-8 campers.
#2 "Central Hub" is in the main part of the campground with all the amenities steps away. 1 small tent and 1 large tent, 2-6 campers. Picnic tables, fire pit, shower, deck, BBQ's.
#3 "The Hideaway" is near the central camp but hidden next to the redwoods. 1 small tents, 2 campers. Fire chimera at site and close to shower, deck, more tables and BBQ's.
# 4 "Beachside East" This is on the beach, inches from the water with a fire pit. 2-3 tents, 2-8 campers. You can bring water down in jugs which are provided.
#5 "Beachside West" This is also on the beach, on a grassy knoll with a fire pit. 2-3 tents, 2-8 campers. You can bring water down in jugs which are provided.
#6 "RV Under the Trees". This is in the parking lot area and is nearest to River Road which can be noisey. Convenient to the wood pile and the toilet, it is very large and can handle larger groups. 1 medium sized RV, 2-3 tents, 2-10 campers.

The vibe at Russian River Redwood Camping
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We had a great experience at this camp site! The location is right off of River Road, with private access to two small beaches. Perfect starting (or ending) point for a float trip. There is a great little communal area at the top of the site just under the trees that includes a fire pit, a small charcoal BBQ, a picnic table, and a bunch of chairs/sitting stumps. There are three main sites for tents - one larger clearing area at the top of the river bank near the communal space, and two areas down by the river. Our group stayed in the clearing near the communal space. There are stairs down to the beaches, and another fire pit down near the river. The setup was great, and the host mentioned they are constantly working on upgrades as well (cleaning up the tent areas, adding fire pits and bbqs to each tent area, etc.). Speaking of the host, Mary was great! She was very accommodating and helpful, and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. She mentioned that some people don't like having to share the space (it accommodates up to three small camping groups), so be aware of that before you book. We had no issue with the shared setup though. There was plenty of space, so it never felt like you were crowded by the other campers. I would definitely recommend checking out this spot if you're looking for a site in the area!
Amazing. Beautiful and serene location. Access to one of the best beaches on the river, complete with a rope swing. Friendly and helpful hosts that were attentive to our needs. If you're a couple looking for a romantic getaway or a family looking for that perfect spot - look no further. 100 times better than any commercial campground I've stayed at in the area. 5 stars.
