Campground Re-Opens At Clam Beach
I noticed the gates open at the Clam Beach Campground today. There were fresh payment envelopes in the kiosk and some people were setting up camp.
Clam Beach County Park sits at the Central Ave. exit of U.S. 101 on the Pacific Ocean in Humboldt County. Campers are just a few hundred feet from the surf. Activities in the area include kayaking, biking, surfing, birding, horse-back riding and just general relaxation walking the miles of almost empty beaches.
The Hammond Coastal Trail starts at the campground and goes south to Arcata. To the north just minutes away are Trinidad Ca. with restaurants and a casino. To the south is the McKilneyville / Arcata airport, restaurants, supermarkets, drug stores, hardware stores, movies at the local cinema and even a Kmart. Just up Central Ave. less than half a mile is the Clam Beach Inn where they serve cocktails.
The campground has been closed for about 2 months for a redesigning of sorts. There are now 9 tent camps with fire rings and a picnic table. There is also plenty of RV parking in the lot but no hookups. Pit toilets are on site. 3 day limit.
