This tiny campground is surrounded by redwood groves! They may not be AS impressive as the ones further up in northern California, but many are old-growth trees that deserve some love. This campground has both Grizzly Creek and the wild Van Duzen river, which merge right below the campground for some great swimming, fishing, kayaking, you name it. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, beautiful scenery AND cool adventures all packaged together, Grizzly Creek is the place to go.

Nice spot, good swimming for kids, clean, but the highway noise is pretty bad, no fun hearing traffic so close to your head when you're trying to sleep. I think in the past the road wasn't as heavily utilized, but on a weekday the evening cars were constant.

This is right off the highway and when I saw "right off" I mean when you get there & you take 5 steps for forward you are quite LITERALLY standing on the highway. Beautiful scenery, but traffic all night long. Imagine 18 wheelers zooming by your tent all night...that's pretty much this. Unless you book one of the 5 spaces that isn't butted up to the highway.

No soap in the bathrooms and a strict weekend night ranger. AWESOME for families, wonderful mild weather and a fantastic swimming hole.

We camped here and were the only people at the site. The camp host was great, and there's lots of good hiking nearby (no dogs allowed on the trails). The river is nice and the lots are big and private.

Often overlooked, but nice for hiking or camping right on the river. Good redwood hike right from camp. Quiet; highway 36 (a GREAT road) gets little traffic.
