Beautiful area surround by redwoods and a stream nearby. Bathrooms are clean as are the showers. There are also 2 accessible restrooms that include showers. There is a large meadow where elk graze. Alongside the meadow are wooden benches perfect for watching the animals. We camped at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park - Elk Prairie Campground in a Truck Camper.

Great place -- agree with prior reviews. Quiet, green, lush trees and bushes. But do not bring a big rig here -- very narrow roads, low branches, small campsites. Also, campsites can be very muddy -- bring something to wipe your feet on, like an astroturf mat. We camped at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park - Elk Prairie Campground in a Travel Trailer.

What a beautiful campground! This is truly one of the best we've ever experienced. Most sites are quite private being surrounded by shrubs and trees. Some sites are difficult to back into with a travel trailer. The shower and restroom facilities are very clean. This area provides stands of old growth redwoods with excellent hiking and walking trails, and, of course, you have the elk in the meadows.

There are two upper loops. The loop on the right has several sites that will fit my 31' trailer. The lower loops are for RVs under 24'. I had to drive around the large loop twice, and it is not designed as a drive around loop. I had to drive back and forward several times to get around one corner. It is a meadow setting, so no rocks or trees to hamper backing into site. Good south sun for solar panels. Camp road is paved. Nice showers and restrooms, fairly new. Very quiet, no highway noise. We camped at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park - Elk Prairie Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed our stay here, especially with the elk coming right down to the camping sites. The attendant in the visitor's center was particularly helpful. The cost was high, however, for a state park with no utilities. And the prohibition from dogs on any of the paths made the stay difficult for us with our pets. Although the only sites indicated for RVs were in the open near the meadow, we found many sites down in the trees that would be fine even with my friend's 32' Class C. We camped at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park - Elk Prairie Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at Elk Prairie Campground, one of several in the state park (the fee of $7.50 for a reservation is not included in the above price). This is a great state park with beach access and redwoods access, plenty of big trees, campfire programs, elk meadows. Our site, 42, had a secluded picnic table and fire pit. There are a lot of low-hanging trees around. Maximum camper length is 27 feet. The restrooms have hot water and the showers are coin-operated but quite modern. Nice visitors center. We camped at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park - Elk Prairie Campground in a Motorhome.
