Free-Your-Mind Camping

· Gasquet, California
119 acres
4 sites
4 RV/Tent
The campground land is remotely located on private property and perfectly located for excursions to the Pacific Ocean, Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, the Smith River National Recreation Area, and the Pacific Coast Ranges and mountain lakes such as the Devil's Punchbowl, Buck Lake, and Raspberry Lake. Relax and free you mind while camping on 119 acres of private property under starry skies with almost no light or noise pollution. In the surrounding area you can enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, surfing, mushrooming, berry-picking, beachcombing, birdwatching, and countless other outdoor activities. We cater to adult travelers, so there will be no children at our location. The campsites have picnic tables, fire rings, and solar lanterns, and campers are provided with a bundle of firewood, 5 gallons of potable water, an outdoor solar shower, and an outhouse. Extra bundles of wood are available on-site for purchase. The campsites are set within a deciduous and pine forest at about 1913 feet in elevation. There is a pond on the property, but its purpose is for wildlife habitat only so no water activities are permitted (that is, no swimming, fishing, boating, etc.) The property owner has two dogs, two cats, and a menagerie of yard birds such as turkeys, peacocks, guinea hens, chickens, ducks, geese, etc., Kirk has lived off-grid for over twenty years and offers a wealth of information about the Gasquet / Del Norte County area. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the property is that it has had documented Sasquatch encounters over the past twenty years that have been published in "Tribal Bigfoot" (D. Paulides 2009). Both campground managers, Kirk and Carlos, can tell you about their experiences with this and other phenomena on the property.

Beautiful property
Carlos and Kirk's property is beautiful and they were very quick to respond to any messages. They include water and a large bundle of firewood with kindling which was much appreciated.

Very Peaceful
Loved this camping spot! It was so peaceful at night, just the sounds of the bugs and the crackling of the fire. Beautiful view of stars at night as well. We lucked out by being the only ones at the sites! Be aware - these sites are pretty close together...if you are going as a group that book multiple sites this would be an AWESOME place for it, but if you want a lot of privacy you may not get that (unless you luck out like us!). Overall, hosts were great communicators and provided plenty of wood and a jug of water for us to use! Perfect for a stop on the way to the redwoods (visitor center is very close to this site)!

Beautiful camping area and loved getting to drive past the redwoods on the way. Couldn't have asked for a better first Hipcamp experience.

accommodations misleading
The advertise for this site is slightly misleading. On the details it said this spot had toilet & showers. however, on the property there was a camping toilet / compost toilet. No showers, but instead 5 gallon buckets filled with water, and a hose. The "potty room" had a small trash can filled with other peoples waste. we feel there was no up keep before we arrived. Small camping spots packed close together. Picnic table was handy, as well as the fire pit with grill. We did have a nice experience cooking over the fire. Our host was friendly and gave us some recommendations around the area that we were pleased with.

Nice, quiet, remote place to camp!
Nice quiet spot to camp off the beaten path. You can tell they put a lot of work into setting up this little off grid campground. And there was absolutely NO light pollution so you could see all the stars and the Milky Way!! If you are camping with friends I would recommend getting the Bear and Cougar sites. If on your own I would go for the Woolley or Fisher sites as they have more privacy. There is a camp toilet with a privacy tent and compost, extra bags, toilet paper, wet wipes and hand sanitizer are all provided. They also provide potable water as well as firewood which is awesome!! Watch your directions; the link to maps takes you to the main house, but look for the gate with the sign to the camp before that and they will send you the code to the gate. It’s a little ways off the main hwy but didn’t take long to get there at all. Enjoy the stars!!

My boyfriend and I camped out here over the weekend, and we loved it!!! I would definitely come here again. Nothing to do with the camp itself, but the way up the road is suuuper long.
