Learn more about this land: The site is in a forested area with short pine and manzanita trees, so its nice and sunny, just out of the daily fog zone that blankets the coast, but only 3 miles from the coast. The neighborhood is super quiet and you can walk right from here to the Pygmy State Park trail system or just on the gravel neighborhood road. There is a main tent site and another tent site and places for 2 cars or more or a small travel trailer. There's a place for at least 2-3 tents and there is a table with 3 chairs provided. Also a metal box to keep your food away from bears that might come by (haven't had that happen yet). No campfires please but propane/gas cook stoves are fine. 50 gallons of potable water is provided from a tank. Please conserve water. Keep all food in your vehicle as there are bears and forest critters around. Outhouse with new, clean composting toilet, environmentally friendly! There has been an ornery squirrel that keeps ripping up the toilet paper so please bring your own. Use this lat/long as Google Maps doesn't like my address- 39.2581451131371, -123.723920996094. Brief directions- coming from the coast on Little River Airport Rd, turn right on "Posted Rd. 18/Sundew Lane" sign, stay right at the fork, first driveway on the right (funky oval painted sign as pictured).The site is in a forested area with short pine and manzanita trees, so its nice and sunny, just out of the daily fog zone that blankets the coast, but only 3 miles from the coast.  The neighborhood is super quiet and you can walk right from here to the Pygmy State Park trail system or just on the gravel neighborhood road.

Private sunny forest near the coast
Nice spot
Everything was great, only thing that bothered me a little was the constant barking of the dogs nearby.

Great spot, there is no house on the property so it is very private. The downside is that we felt a bit nervous leaving our tent unattended whenever we left the property because it is not gated and anyone could wander in from the road. Having said that, it is a very quiet gravel road and tent is hidden and risk is low and we had no problems. The neighbors dog was barking constantly at times in the evenings but stopped before bedtime so not really a problem. Overall highly recommend for location and price and privacy

Not really a forest, been logged over and is scrub and brush. Is quiet though even if pretty close to nearest home/building only real noise was dog barking in distance and not for long periods

Wonderful stay! Private feeling, nice area! Close drive to town. Make sure to bring a balm or something else that smells good to put under your nose when using the composting toilet. 😂

Happy family-with-dog spot
Very peaceful place. Delivers what it promises. My dog was happy and able to be off-leash here. It feels private even though there is a seldom-frequented road behind it with morning dog walkers. The only thing that might disturb you is Raven telling you stories in the morning after a full moon. But if you live for things like that as I do, you'll feel right at home. No bear issues. Yay!
