Near Redwood National Park

The rugged terrain of far northern California is one of the few mostly untouched places left to retreat to. Come dwarf yourself under the magnificent giant redwoods and be struck with awe by the mesmerizing jade colored Smith River.  The property is a mere 20 minutes from some of the world's tallest trees. Come check out Stout Grove, a rarely crowded gem of the Redwood National and State Parks. The grove is a part of Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park which is the least developed and most impressive park of the four.  From your campsite you will have a lovely view of a large bend of the Smith River. It boasts impressive runs of chinook and steelhead, and is host to many other native species. Keep an eye out for bear, mink, and otters! And secure any food or attractants at night.  Our property gives you the chance to disconnect from daily life and recalibrate. Use our site as an extended getaway for some peace and quiet, or a launch point to the variety of local attractions. Find us on Instagram- @campjaderiver! Kick up your feet on our platform overlooking the beautiful Smith River and enjoy the only undammed watershed in California. The platform is large enough for most tents if you'd like to sleep with a front-row view. Meadow space is also available for tents, and there is parking for camper vans and trailers. Escape to our campsite for the perfect springboard to the breathtaking natural landscapes found only on California's rugged north coast.  You will have two acres of waterfront all to yourself. There are neighboring properties but folks generally keep to themselves. We are slowly rehabbing the property into an off-grid haven. Come spend time on the river and enjoy our swimming holes, open meadow, oak grove, and cozy fire pit. Make sure you bring lamps and lanterns for camping the old-fashioned way, utilizing our clean water spigots and pit toilet that keep us off-grid!  The property is surrounded by hiking trails, biking trails, swimming spots, fishing holes, and more! Within 30 minutes we have the magnificent redwoods forests, dramatic northern California beaches, wonderful restaurants and breweries, and all the in town amenities you could need. If you have specific interests, feel free to reach out for recommendations.  The north coast is both an adventure-center and a place to relax and disconnect from the distractions of our busy lives. The property is a few miles up the south fork of the Smith River which is a doorway to the Smith River National Recreation Area. You won't have cell phone service at the site, but can get that and anything else you might need just a few miles away in Hiouchi.  Dogs are welcome to enjoy our space too! We encourage you to bring your pets. Leashes are not required but bear in mind our land is not completely fenced. Please have your pet under voice control for their safety and as courtesy to nearby landowners.

GPS got me there with no problem 😁 Parked close to the river, went to sleep listening to it's gentle flow 💦 Huge property all to myself ☮️ Lots of water spiquets depending on where you choose to park Deck overlooking the water. Large gravel fire pit space, so it is not mucky Fenced and gated for a feels of safe and secure. Dogs love the field and grass. The river is deep and crystal clear Full moon was amazing. Quiet and calm location 💯

Tyler’s spot was amazing! There is neighbors but they kept to themselves and the views alone are worth it. This would be a great swimming hole for the summer! We Would absolutely stay again. There is also two different river access trailheads down the road not too far from camp to explore more of the river banks. It’s also a great location for exploring the redwoods nearby. The camp was also a great setup for our dog to run free.

Great camp spot, centrally located to beautiful redwoods, the river was right there, and everything was as listed. To access the river you must traverse a steep wall path using a rope for support. The water was green and clear… we even spotted a banana slug! Would recommend.
