If you want a secluded campground THIS IS THE ONE! Campsites were very spread out and completely surrounded by trees and bushes. It felt much nicer and quieter than the campgrounds that pack in as many sites as possible. Also right next to the dunes with a trail leading up to them. I would definitely come back here.
I love love love this place. It is now my favorite. We randomly pulled over out of all the campsites to this one.. (GREAT CALL ON US) ....off the 101. You have to call in to get campsite though. They won't just give it to you there. It's pretty simple though if you have service. Can't wait to return. ❤️C+E
Right on the trailhead for John Dellenback Dunes trail. Took us about 5 hours round-trip to walk across the dunes, out to the beach, and back. Absolutely worth the effort, it's one of the coolest ~6 miles hikes I've ever been on, and few people walk the full ~2 miles across the dunes, so you'll likely have the huge beach at the end totally to yourself.
Great little campground that never seems to have anyone there. The water and bathrooms are working again but as of this review only the upper half of the campground. But since there is never a problem with finding a spot the Forest Service is probably taking there time. Easy access to the John Dellenback Dunes. Road noise from US 101 is minor, the sound of the ocean is pretty noticeable. Some of the sites are on the small size but others are much bigger. Must reserve online!!
First time to the dunes- on this trip, totally appreciated the quiet and low key nature of the site. A bit further away from the action and the dunes at your tent step. A++ plus. Probably good for kids if you really have to bring the the little noise makers. ;)
