Convenient park for visiting Trinidad. Located in large, second growth redwoods but dusty at times. Campsites are a bit odd shaped and squeezed in due to tree layout. Wifi was acceptable. There was only one shower/toilet room for about 20 spaces in our area. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Travel Trailer.

Stunning park. Sites are in among the redwoods, I found myself just staring at the trees. Some noise from Hwy 101, but not bad. Park manager was very friendly and helpful. Good utilities, strong Wi-Fi. Close to seaside sightseeing. Slight downgrade for tight entry road. Been here before, will come again. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Motorhome.

The campground setting is very beautiful, with sites set among redwoods. The hookups were good. We did hear HWY 101 noise. The restroom floors needed a good cleaning and paint job. We just stayed one night and took a ride over to Patricks Point State Park, which was a brief but very beautiful visit with short hikes to outstanding coastal scenery. Be sure to see the lighthouse in Trinidad too. Getting around inside with the RV is super tight and the roads need some serious grading. Because of this and the restroom issue, we would try another park next time. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Travel Trailer.

Bathrooms were dirty, didn't always have toilet paper and needed a good paint job. The sites were nice. Trinidad Bay is beautiful and the town is cute. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Fifth Wheel.

Site not close to level either way. Good privacy between sites, lots of dust as roads are mostly dirt. Would not use laundry! Lots of highway noise from 101, but less after midnight. We will stay at another Park next time. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Travel Trailer.

We loved our stay here. We liked our site and felt that it was private. The staff here was SO friendly! The kids really liked the playground area even though it was a bit small. They did have a big lawn space to run around on, and they were quick to lend us play equipment (a volleyball). They also have bikes you can rent - even kids' bikes - but we ran out of time. We did a load of laundry here and had no problems. We also really appreciated that we were close enough to walk to the little town & a couple beaches. We got a great restaurant recommendation, & we didn't have any trouble with the noise (I felt like the campground was tucked away). They also had some nice looking cabins for rent and even talked with a couple from Oregon who returns here regularly to stay in the cabins. I also highly recommend the short drive to Moonstone Beach. We had a great day there. I saw that some of the reviews said it was dusty - I could see that, but everything was very damp while we were there (a few rainy days - even in June) so that wasn't a problem. We will return here if we're ever in the area again. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Motorhome.

Do you prefer scenery or amenities? Forest setting: A++. Laundry room: F (a few rusted machines). Bathrooms: D- (tiny; broken vents; showers flood toilet area). Roads: F (exit road severely potholed); roads in need of fresh gravel to keep dirt to a minimum. If you want amenities, stay elsewhere and get A++ scenery at the many surrounding state parks. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Motorhome.

We stayed for two nights to explore the surrounding areas in a motorhome towing a trailer about 50 ft long. They were able to accommodate us and the staff was nice. The campground is nestled in a stand of redwoods and is lovely. If you are not used to maneuvering in tight areas, you may not like this campground. It was a very quiet campground, clean, and it felt like you were somewhere deep in the woods. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Motorhome.

A spiritual, healing place in the redwoods. AAA, Good Sam, Escapees discounts. Lovely sites, some full hookups, some pull-throughs. Water pressure 30#. We thought maintenance is very good. Good cable TV, adequate Verizon signal. Excellent nearby restaurants include Moonstone Grill and Larrupin Café. Some highway noise, not much traffic at night. Yes, can be muddy in wet weather, but we prefer redwood forest floor over paving and fear paving would harm the trees. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Credit cards accepted. Park has ambitious recycling program. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved this campground. We were traveling with friends and owners went out of their way to make sure we were camped next to each other. A perfect place to stay and see the redwoods. We would stay here again. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Fifth Wheel.

It was a very nice park, except that all ground was dirt, with moisture in the air, made for mud tracks in trailer. The showers ran out of hot water quickly, but the park being in the middle of redwood trees made for nice scenery. The morning could have been a morning for sleeping as the sun never came through the trees. If this park was $10 cheaper the rating might be higher, except for the lack of concrete or gravel instead of dirt. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Travel Trailer.

Pretty good stop over park for a few days. Rustic appearance is intentional I believe. Road noise was there, but didn't bother us. Somewhat gloomy, however the weather itself was not the greatest and this RV park would be welcoming on a hot day. WiFi and cable TV worked very well. It's dog friendly too. Nice sites, but not if you want pavement. Super beach right in town. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed this campground, small but well maintained. The owner is very friendly and apparently paying a lot of effort to keep the campground in good shape. It is right next to the state park with stunning view. You can walk into the state in minutes. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Tent Trailer.

This park would probably get a rating of 8 if the owners did some maintenance. Dirt roads don't do well in the rain, everything was muddy and miserable. I would not recommend or stay here again. We camped at The Emerald Forest of Trinidad in a Travel Trailer.
