8 Parks near Trinidad, California
Nov 2015 - $36.00
We gravitate towards the 10/10/10 parks with level concrete pads & easy satellite tv clearance. This awesome park is definitely not that. But its emphasis on a quiet, serene atmosphere (no outdoor TV's allowed!) held huge appeal to me. Arrived after a good rain storm to find the very large grass pad firm enough to drive on but too soft to comfortably allow me to extend the leveling jacks, even with the aid of the plastic 12"x12" pads & 'legos' I carry. I cautiously elected to give it a day to dry out then try again. A passing comment to one of the wonderful women that work the office resulted in her equally great husband providing some serious pieces of wood that made quick work of supporting the weight of our 37' Class A. Satellite TV worked at our pull thru site unless the wind was really blowing. (The park abuts to part of Patrick's Point SP & has very tall trees on its parameter.). Excellent cable is provided. The park, our site included, is beautifully landscaped. A very tall hedge provided a privacy on the sides. There really aren't that many sites available. At least during our November stay, drop-ins were not encouraged. Be sure to call ahead. Our departure was delayed by a day due to another rainstorm. My inexperience with grass sites had me worried that we might get stuck trying to leave. We did get a lot of rain, but in hindsight, I was probably just being overly cautious. Enter the park from the north & carefully follow the park's signs at the entrance. The first entrance area is not designed for bigger rigs. This is a very nicely landscaped that emphasizes a very quiet setting. And great wifi. Pay for 7, stay for 8. We could not have been happier. - biosensai

We liked this little park - it's a great location for visiting Redwood NP. Pull-thru sites were a bit narrow, but the green flowering plants growing on the fences between the sites made for nice barriers. Flowers blooming everywhere and a picturesque little pond made this a pretty place and helped us overlook the dated (but very clean) bathrooms. Office staff was very friendly and provided lots of helpful information about the area. The speed bumps were obnoxious; they could take half of them out and there would still be too many. Other than that, it was a nice place and we would stay again. - Jolly Out There

Small park near Patricks Point State Park, North of Trinidad. We got a pull thru and did not have to unhook 30' trailer. Back In's appeared mostly small. Pricy! Well landscaped with abundant flowers. Pretty park but overpriced. - ebaldy

This is a great little dry camping park right on the Big Lagoon. Emphasis on "LITTLE"...big rigs need not apply. The sites range from tiny in the trees to huge and right on the lagoon so you can launch a canoe or kayak right from your site. Even though some of the sites are large, the road around the camp loop is very narrow and tough to negotiate even with a (large) pickup camper like ours. Lots of trees for shade at pretty much all of the sites. We were there on a weekday in late June and it was almost full in early afternoon. I would suggest giving this one a try as early in the day as possible and have an alternative in mind since it seems to be very popular. No dump station either, so plan accordingly. At $20 ($18/senior) plus $2 per dog (what's up with always charging extra for the dogs, California?!) it's a steal for a waterfront campground in CA, IMHO. We would definitely stay there again. - Pdxjoanne

This is not a park for those who like paved roads and nice level paved sites. Our site was in what they call the meadow area on the outer loop. It was mostly grass and dirt, with a little gravel and it was very unlevel. It would be nice if they would do some pad maintenance. The wifi didn't work for us, we did have weak Verizon phone service, no tv service, but the other utilities worked fine. We stayed there 2 nights and enjoyed seeing Elk in the park. We stayed there in a 37' travel trailer, our site was an easy back in site and the site spacings were spacious. It was quiet at night, but there is a lot of highway noise all other times. It is less than a mile from a beautiful Pacific Ocean beach park. Management was very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again. - Arlen

We have stayed here many times in the last 40 years (used to be a member park). Enjoy staying out front and seeing the elk herd wander around. Close to the beach.
The sites are gravel with grass between the sites and ample space between sites. Used 30 amp and it worked fine.
No problem with the roads in the park. We will stay here again. - TeamElk-Rib

We chose this park because I wanted to walk the beaches to look for agates and this park was near Agate beach. I have to echo many of the other reviewers' comments and only gave it an overall rating of 5 because of the Elk.
- The park is run down. What once was probably a beautiful property is certainly no longer worthy of the word "Resort."
- The woman who ran the office appeared confused and easily flustered.
- While the "wooded" section of the park was beautiful, half of it was occupied by full-time residents with run-down units.
- The field section was just that; a field. And while the Elk are amazing to see they leave poop everywhere so walker beware! (I posted a picture of the Elk grazing in and around the camping area).
On a positive note, we did have great reception with Verizon while our friend's AT&T service was nonexistent. And, we took a lovely 1 1/2 mile walk to the beach and did find a few agates.
If you want to see the Elk, which is spectacular, or walk the beach, this might be a good place to stay if you don't have too high of expectations for the park. - Ree Klein

This park was OK. Great location but very old conditions. I only stayed one night and wasn't too impressed. It is close to all the beautiful sites of Trinidad. - Jay9259

Gentleman at check in was very friendly but this was not good RV park for our purposes. It is almost exclusively permanent RV's and park models with a handful of spots for overnight or short term stays. Interior roads were fine except for a couple of speed bumps angled to feel really huge; site was level and large enough but not big by any means. The dump was flooded out when we were there in January. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were OK, not overly modern or clean but acceptable. We wouldn't stay there again, we would try the Emerald Forest just down the street. It looks more like a campground than a mobile home park. - mahaffee

Patrick's Point is a beautiful park, with many scenic vistas, great bike roads (for short rides), wonderful tide pools and beaches. The campground is a bit sketchy, with many of the sites being small and narrow. Some are literally carved out from the overgrown brush making them more like single car garages than campsites. We stayed in one of the "premium" sites, which have some kind of view and more space. Ours had a distant view of Agate Beach and was private on three sides, but faced the day use parking lot, which was not really a problem. I would stay here again for the park but it is worth getting here on a weekday morning to have a chance to get a premium site. Our rate reflects the premium site cost minus the senior discount. - MrSunshine

Old park but still good. We backed into a "water view" site but the view was barely visible through the dense trees. Although we could hear the seals barking during the night! We paid cash and got a "discount" of $5 off the credit card rate. Quiet park worked just fine for us for overnight. No amenities to speak of and $30 seemed a bit steep. Overpriced, but if we had to, I'd stay here again. There's not much else to choose from in the area. - RMLincoln

Breathtaking, beautiful park with large sites nestled in Giant Redwoods and Ferns. Dry camping. Clean coin shower. Dump station. If you have not camped here you should! You will need reservation. Park is on cliffs above beach. Many very private sites. Not too far from Trinidad.. Hiking trails above and down to beach paved roads for biking. Not far from lovely Trinidad, Redwoods, Roosevelt Elk herds & an Indian Casino. - galley

Very quiet park with both shaded (premium) and open sites. Ocean view sites have patio, table, fire pit ; Regular sites have table. Utilities are at back but reachable (at least in premium sites). Good AT&T cellular and Verizon data. Good pet walking area. - SW Rick

Three levels at this park. Counting all the spaces it could be considered a medium size park. Very few pull-through sites and very narrow. Virtually no space on either side but easy to get into and out. Ample room for back-ins. Park is clean and appears to be well maintained. Wi-Fi is OK but not great. - Cooter

Park is close enough to the shoreline that you do hear the surf and the sea lions. Spaces are pretty close together. A few sites farthest to the west are very shaded and have a few of the ocean (assuming no fog) but most are pretty open. The folks that own and run the park are working hard on it and are very helpful. - DennisA

Poor experience. Very difficult for our motorhome to manouver. Spaces were disorganized, muddy, and not level. Utilities were poorly located. - Lesdiane

We thought this was the best RV park in the area. Wanted FHU in the Redwoods and that is what we got. The area is gorgeous. Far enough away from sketchy Eureka. Bathrooms clean, dog friendly. Staff was OK... had a question about laundry- i.e dry time ( important when travelling with a family) and got some attitude from Mgr. Very strange. 1 washer/ 1 dryer. Spot 90 is good pull thru spot on the end.
We will come back. - MrsWeller

Nice park with lots of trees. Site 93 was a spacious pull thru, clean and relaxing. Play area for the kids. Highway 101 was a little close to our site but noise was tolerable. Nearest garbage was a little far but seen this before. I would stay again but want to try nearby parks next time. - Rick Robinson

ABSOLUTELY NO MANAGEMENT! Poorly maintained park with unleashed dogs running throughout the park. Animal waste in the roadways and trailer spaces. Dirty restrooms, no toilet paper, filthy showers, poorly maintained roadways. Tijuana Mexico has cleaner campgrounds. Two big thumbs down! - AvidRVer
