Description

Usal Beach is the only drive-in campground, as well as the campground furthest south in Sinkyone; it’s conveniently located near Highway 1. The trailheads start here, and on the opposite end at Needle Rock up north. Conveniently, there’s a parking lot here if you’re planning on backpacking your way up the Lost Coast trail. There’s also a horse campground and an amazing view! This is definitely the easiest campground to get to if you’re heading up from Highway 1, and it’s by far the largest, with 25 campsites.

Hard to find but worth. Arrived on a tue. Ranger was cleaning an outhouse. Lucked out and had a great spot 19. Most other spots lacked amenities& spots seemed randomly spread around without any real numbered sites. I highly recommend taking 3d left after bridg

Extremely remote. The road from the highway to the campsite is over 8 miles of dirt and potholes. Poison oak prevalent.
