What's Near Mattole Beach Campground?
The Mattole Beach Campground is located at the north end of the King Range on the beach. From U.S. 101, take the Garberville, South Fork/Honeydew, or Ferndale exits. Follow signs toward Petrolia, turn on Lighthouse Road to the ocean.
My daughter and I visited this campground on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb 6, 2011 and were the only campers there. The road in through Honeydew was clear but extremely twisty and the road out through Petrolia and the coast was rough but good enough. The fresh spanakopita at the Petrolia store was awesome!
