  • This is a remote and amazing campground directly adjacent to rare coastal wilderness. Well worth a visit. Very remote - come prepared - the trek out to the closest store is very long.

  • I was amazed at the amount of people at this little campground. it being BLM it was worth the 8 bucks to stay the night. We ended up with sand all over but hey it is the beach right.

  • Small compact campground, something I'm not usually fond of but this place is special. Can't wait to go back.

  • 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!
