Patrick Creek Campground is a unique site, located at the junction of the Patrick Creek and Smith River in the gorgeous Six Rivers National Forest in northern California. From north of Crescent City, California, you can travel east on Highway 199 for about 22 miles to reach this dog-friendly campground.
Not only does the campground boast spectacular natural features, but it's also very well-constructed, with rock walls, steps, great restroom facilities, and campfire circles built in the 1930s. All these amenities and natural features make an ideal campsite for both small and large camping groups.
There are 13 single-family campsites where you can enjoy tent or RV camping. Campfire rings with grills and tables are provided with the sites. Flush toilets are available, and there's also access to drinking water. Remember to bring poop bags to clean up after your four-pawed pal in order to do your part in keeping the campground clean, beautiful, and, most imporantly, pet-friendly!
Patrick Creek Campground is close to some pawesome recreation options. These include sunbathing, swimming, rafting, and fishing in the vast Smith River, which is just next to the campground. The river contains many rare fish species like cutthroat trout, salmon and steelhead. Horseback riding, hiking, and biking also entertain visitors. Although there are no trailheads inside the campground, High Dome, Eik Camp Ridge, and French Hill trailheads are located less than 10 miles from the site, which means that you and your doggo can easily find some exercise options.
The campground is situated on a flat above the river and has a short trail down to the water. You'll find a well-known historic lodge and restaurant just across the road, where guests and their pups will receive a warm welcome. All in all, this is an excellent campground, ideal for a fun-filled trip with your furry friend!
