This campground is wheelchair accessible even though it’s located right next to the steep bluffs looming over the Eel River! It features a picnic area and the campfire center, which is the site for popular summer interpretive programs. If you’re tent camping, you might want to avoid the campsites right next to the highway; they’re better suited for RVs.

Loved it here. We were in #34 and #35 with a decent sized groups. The campsites are bigger than they look initially and the facilitates are awesome (they have lights!). Quick walk to the water, right across the street from an awesome shop (Peg Store). Loved it

Incredible swimming hole. There is a beautiful (AND rocky) beach that spans the river and provides a great place to spend the afternoon picnicking. Swim across for a some sun bathing on the rocks of jumping off that high ledge (we witnessed some daredevils)Big beautiful redwoods. The campsites are shaded but allow some nice sunlight through!Lots of campsites. It's worth checking the map and being away from the road. Fire pit, food storage, car spots, etc.The Chandelier Tree is about 30 minutes for the campsite (coming from SF) and is definitely worth checking out! $5/car but they sell ice cream :)

Incredible proximity to river swimming and live music across the street. Getting a campsite that isn't RIGHT next to another party can be tougher.

Accross the street from the campground you can get food and watch live music.The most secluded campsite up the hill.Accross the street from the campground you can get food and watch live music.Accross the street from the campground you can get food and watch live music.

Meh. Sites too close together, quiet time not enforced, freeway noise at our campsite.
