This pretty campground is perfect for families. Just off US 101, Elk Prairie Campground has all the amenities—flush toilets, hot showers, secluded campsites set off in redwoods and maples, and a meadow full of children-pleasing wapiti, otherwise known as elk. These huge animals, Cervus elaphus (or Roosevelt elk, in honor of Teddy, the president who helped protect them), are instant crowd pleasers. Cars come to screeching halts on US 101 when elk appear beside the road. Kids are fascinated by their huge antlers. The baby elk melt anyone’s heart.

The campsites are beautiful and all are in close proximity to the Trinity river. It is a small campground and not one likely to invite or appeal to a rowdy crowd. It is not, however open year round or at least not this year. Went there on December 1 and it was locked and the last reservation noted on any campsite was 10-26-04.
