A very kind lady at the forestry service suggested this as a campground that may have first-come availability in late July.

All of the sites in the center of the campground were taken. Just as we were about to go to the next campground on our list, I saw a sign that said, "Trail Tent Camping, Units 2-5". Unit 2 was very close and well worth lugging our stuff to have a private site!! The only downside was that road traffic was quite loud at night--bring earplugs.

Our site was beautiful, and our trail site was much more private than the ones in the middle.

Bonus: Walk to Smith River, wild blackberries growing everywhere

Cons: Road noise; no water while we were there (I think this was temporary); bathrooms weren't flushable

Short trail to the Units 2-5 tent camping sites.
The sites are just beyond this sign. Easy walk, much more private than the sites in the middle of the campground.Wild blackberries (or similar) everywhere near the river!Smith River access nearby--a little steep, but worth it.

Primitive camping here but very nice grounds. They usually do have fresh water onsite, but didn't in Summer '18 due to pipe issues. But that is getting fixed and should be running by Summer '19 according to staff. They do have vault toilets throughout grounds. Spots are nice and large for a small campground (fit our 21ft travel trailer no problem). Very private for the most part. Does have some road noise. Has a path down to river with beach access too and is about 10 min from Gasquet market. Note: No AT&T or Verizon cell service here or in Gasquet. Need to drive another 10 minutes to Hiouchi for service. Campground Host at Grassy Flats is super friendly and informative.
