Elk Prairie Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"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.

The absolute best time to come is in September and October, when the sun shines. Summer is warmer, but expect some fog, and be prepared to dress for it. Spring has rainy spells but also wildflowers."
