“No dump station”

Reviewed May 18, 2019

Overall Rating

We paid $17.50 per night with our National Park Pass. This is a combined State and National Park. There is also a $8 booking fee. Campendium's amenities for the campground are wrong. There is NO DUMP STATION. The sites are small. We had to go the wrong way up a one way lane to back in our 23' travel trailer which barely fit into ... more

“Tight quarters”

Reviewed Feb 18, 2019

Overall Rating

Site #62 only one in south loop we could fit into with our 24 foot trailer. Fortunately, we were the only ones in the loop. Driveway is very narrow. $35 for dry camping is very high. Unfortunately, weather closed the Drury Pkwy and we couldn't explore much of the park. When CA state parks says 24 foot limit on trailers you better ... more

“Great location to hike/explore from camp but cell service is non existent ”

Reviewed Sep 25, 2018

Overall Rating

The park is nice with lots of trees and brush to provide privacy and shade (aka we got nothing on our solar panels). There is a path that goes to the visitors center and to a lot of hiking trails so no need to move and park a car. The sites are all different shapes and sizes and angles and we probably should have looked at the pictu... more

“Not Impressed”

Reviewed Aug 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Having been to Sequoia and Kings Canyon several times, I wanted to see the coastal redwoods. I booked early, as the campground sold out fairly quickly for the summer dates. My campsite cost $35/night, plus a one time booking fee of $7.99. It was by far my most expensive night of my two week camping trip. Elk Prairie Campground is c... more

Reviewed May 29, 2018

Elk Prairie Campground is a stunning location to camp, hike, bike and admire the LARGE elk grazing in the fields and more.

We loved site #24, but it’s hard to find a bad one The smaller the RV the better in this gem of a campground s... more

“gorgeous, spacious, quiet in february”

Reviewed Feb 11, 2018

Overall Rating

We spent two nights, dry camped in an open site along elk prairie. and yes, there was a herd of elk right there, night and day. It was a little intimidating to have them about 12 feet from the trailer, grazing away. Definitely keep the dogs leashed at all times. weather was clear and high of 60 in early february. what I really like... more

“Beautiful location in the Redwoods”

Reviewed May 31, 2015

Overall Rating

This is a perfect central location to explore the redwoods. The sites are sized well with plenty of space between you and your neighbors for most sites. It's a bit tight and the small roads look intimidating at first, but it was no problem in a 25' trailer. In typical Cali fashion it is expensive, especially for no hookups and no dump.... more
