Trinidad, California Area Campgrounds

Trinidad, California Area Campgrounds
Situated on the northern California coast, Trinidad offers campers access to both the Pacific coast and to the mighty redwood forest. Camping in and around Trinidad prioritizes coastal outdoors sites like Patrick's Point and Humboldt Lagoon state parks, but both national and state redwood forest enclosures are within a 30 to 40 mile drive. The Trinidad area offers shore fishing, hiking, biking and a plethora of wildlife-watching opportunities.

Patrick's Point State Park

Located in the midst of California's coastal redwood country, Patrick's Point State Park offers three separate campgrounds: Abalone, Penn Creek and Agate Beach. Among them they have 124 campsites, each with a picnic table, barbecue grill and cupboard. Each campground is also serviced by its own set of water taps and bathhouses. For outdoor activities, Patrick's Point has six miles of hiking trails that offer the opportunity to see both forest wildlife and coastal marine mammals like whales and seals. The park also permits shore fishing.

Azalea Glen RV Park

Azalea Glen is primarily an RV park, but its lane of grassy RV sites is open to tent-camping as well. The park's pleasant camping lane has a forest on one side and a pond with lotus blossoms on the other. Each site has full hookups, so tent campers have access to both water and electricity. There is also a bathhouse, a coin laundry, a horseshoe court and a small playground on the property. Azalea Glen RV Park sits just outside Patrick's Point State Park.

Eureka KOA

Eureka KOA lies 20 miles south of Trinidad on U.S. 101 in the town of Eureka. Like most of the KOA facilities, it offers a mix of sites for tents and RVs, as well as rental cabins and cottages. The tent pitch consists of a long camping lane lining the outer periphery of the property. The KOA camping facilities include showers, coin laundry, and a camp store with firewood and LP gas sales. The other amenities consist of a playground, swimming pool, hot tub, recreation room, dog-walking area, horseshoe courts, snack bar, bike rentals and free Wi-Fi access. Although the Eureka KOA is the area campground that is farthest from Trinidad, it is still a reasonable drive and offers convenient access to fishing and boating in Eureka Bay, Humboldt Bay and the Pacific Ocean.
