Enjoy an un-fur-gettable camping trip with your favorite canine companion at Grassy Flat Campground! This wooded wonderland is just a bone's throw away from Redwood National Park, making it the pawfect place for hikers, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts looking to enjoy the activities on offer here.
You won't find any fancy mod-cons at Grassy Flat — picnic tables, campfire rings, and accessible vault toilets are the extent of your on-site amenities. You'll need to bring enough drinking water to last your trip, but the lack of water access may only be a temporary issue due to pipe problems. Drinking water is expected to be available again in the 2019 season.
Grassy Flat Campground provides easy access to Smith River, a hot-spot for avid anglers and whitewater rafters. Try your hand at fishing for many types of trout and cook your catch on the campfire ring and grill provided at your site. Swimming is permitted in Smith River, but if you plan to bring your dog along for a dip, be sure to keep them on-leash for their own safety.
If you'd rather look at the river than swim in it, leash up your furry friend and take the short trail up to the bridge to enjoy sweeping views of the rapids below. This same trail will lead you down to the swimming area on Smith River, but come prepared with proper footwear as there are some steep sections along the path.
Guests note that the campground host is friendly and accommodating. As this campground is situated just off the Redwood Highway, you'll need to be prepared for some traffic noise. Some guests even recommend bringing earplugs, so if you and Fido are looking for somewhere quiet, you might want to look elsewhere.
Grassy Flat Campground might not offer much for the "glampers", but for just $10 per night, it's a furrific, budget-friendly vacation destination!
