Trinidad Stump Camp

· Trinidad, Humboldt, California
3 acres hosted by Nico K.
PLEASE READ THIS DESCRIPTION COMPLETELY!!! THIS IS ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR CAMPGROUND AND HOW TO GET HERE.  Our campground is a work in progress and after decades of neglect from the previous owners over the last 4 years we have made great progress returning it back to its natural beauty. That said we are still finding buried trash and treasure and we likely will for years to come unfortunately so bear with us and keep your shoes on:) Our campground is for experienced outdoors people. We do not have Wifi, electricity or flushing toilets. We do have excellent reviews from folks that really love camping and being outdoors and also meeting other people. Our campfire is a common area where your encouraged to meet your fellow campers. So you can talk about where your going and were you've been, what your doing and what your passionate about. If your not feeling social your campsite will offer a quite place to relax and enjoy the frogs and crickets. Our toilets are simple and use sawdust so we can compost. We understand that is new to a lot of people but the good news is, if you've ever roughed it in the back country, We don't ask you to pack it out. My Wife Bren and I really enjoy hosting with Hipcamp and hope to be a part of helping you reconnect with nature. Thank you so much for considering a visit and don't hesitate if there is something we can do to make your visit special. Nico J Woody    *vaccinated Bren I Woody     *vaccinated Take the Trinidad exit (if traveling South), Trinidad Rancheria exit (if traveling North) to the boutique fishing village of Trinidad were the towns unofficial motto is " A drinking town with a fishing problem". Head North on Frontage Rd on the East side of the freeway then turn Right on Stumptown Rd, drive down the dip, up the road past our neighbors to the left with a colorful collection of trailers before arriving at our 2 acre home nestled in the thick of the redwoods. The live edge redwood fence will let you know you've arrived.  Our front and West side fence is live edge redwood and recycled sheet metal. The front house is a light green with mahogany stained window trim and there is one camp sight up there but you will be camping in the back and you will get there by following these instructions. Turn Left at the wood sign with the letters HC at the top, 103 in the middle and 93 at the bottom. 93 are our neighbors so do not enter their property. They are very nice but they are not Hipcampers so please respect their privacy. The HC sign should be illuminated if your coming after dark though we strongly encourage you to arrive in the late afternoon to early evening. Keep right along the redwood fence until you reach the gate with the HIPCAMP sign that reminds you you are here. The gate is always closed so please close behind you if we are not around but we definitely intend to be! We really enjoy being hipcamp hosts and we've always found the best experience for you as a guest is to have us here to greet you. we have carved out 5 sites in the woods with one shared fire pit next to a VW beetle that has a tree growing out of it.  Site 1 is reserved for families at the front of the property accessed through the wood gate behind the main house. There is one fire pit here and the house is under renovation. This site is gated on all 4 corners so if you have animals or don't like animals this spot by request and availability only. My wife and i stay in the cabin and in the barn we keep our chickens and turkeys. On the North side of our cabin you'll find an outside sink for dishes, a water spigot and an outdoor shower with hot water. In the back we assign spots on an individual basis. The campfire and hammock area is communal and campers are encouraged to hang out and swap stories about where you've been and where your going. There is a small white sign for parking your car. if you are tent camping which is a short walk North into the woods. The sites back here each have a green popup tent with a private toilet, bear spray and first aid kit. There is a red wagon you may use to move your gear to the back if needed.    If your van, truck or trailer camping there are 2 spots on either side of a redwood grove next to the VW beetle. There is a small table and a few chairs that may help you identify this area.  We have fresh eggs for breakfast by donation. (based on availability).  Firewood is $5, $10, $15 a bundle small, medium, and large THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING IT ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM! Now let me tell you the most important thing, We have no street lights and cell service is spotty at best. Please print this out, take screen shots but do not trust your phone or google maps to guide you here.

Relaxing and Peaceful
What a great spot! Each campsite is marked with small sign with various names, we used two campsites that were in the back, they were very spacious. It was calm and quiet upon arrival. The hosts would later come and say hello around dinnertime, they were very friendly. There were materials to make s'mores left by the fire pit. The outdoor sink was a little hard to find, it was in the back of the cabin, would not recommend for overly large pots / pans. Arachnophobes beware -- there were a lot of spiders hanging out in the bathroom tent. Also we weren't quite sure if the bathroom is very equipped for going #2. There's wood chips to throw into the bucket after use, but I'm sure if too many people were using it in that manner, it may pile up too high. We were only there one night so we never found out. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves at this location. The stars were bright and beautiful, the trees blocked out a lot of the windiness, and it was too terribly far from town, so if you forgot anything important it's a short trip to the market. If we were to stay again we might take advantage of the hiking trail nearby.

Nico was super helpful and the location was good! But the spot itself wasn't as secluded as I'd hoped. The campsites (we staying in a van) weren't very private, and the garbage pick-up still seems to be a work in process.

Fantastic car camping!
Fantastic car camping with an incredibly generous and attentive host. Nico was nothing short of amazing. We had an absolute blast hiking in the redwoods and Nico gave us plenty of tips as well as helped us build a fire (we had a little trouble haha!) Thank you so much for letting us stay in your camp site! The hot shower was amazing after hiking in beautiful redwoods out to the beach and back. So grateful to see poultry being raised in humane conditions and we were happy to handle the sawdust toilets. Nico was Johnny on the spot with everything we needed.

Over priced and underwhelming
The campsite certainly did not feel as private or as up kept as the photos showed. Being very close to neighbors definitely takes away from the experience. The community fire pit is created out of river rock which is extremely dangerous because they explode when they over heat and this actually did happen to us on our trip and almost hit one of our campers.
