Benefit to Reopen Stone Lagoon Campground In Humboldt County

This Sunday, October 20th, Kayak Zak's, Explore North Coast, and HSU Recreation Students invite kayakers, hikers and the outdoorsy alike to the Benefit to Reopen Stone Lagoon Campground.

The event will go from 9 am to 5 pm this Sunday at the Stone Lagoon Vistitor Center at 115336 US 101 north of Trinidad California, just past the Little Red Schoolhouse. There will be kayak tours to the campground, live local music by "Monahan, Martin, & Sleep", a raffle with prizes and a whole lot of fun. Rain or shine.

Amanda Kachevas says the Stone Lagoon Primitive Campground has been closed for two years. These are Humboldt County's only boat-in/hike-in campsites and with just a little help it can be reopened in spring of 2014. Elk Country RV (at Little Red Schoolhouse) will have a simultaneous event featuring a barbecue, kid's events, demonstrations and discount camping all weekend.

Kayak Tours are $35.00 per person donation and will launch at 10;00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 2;00 p.m. Reserve in advance or sign up that day. Bring a change of clothes and wear shoes that can get wet. Wet suits, booties and splash jackets are also available to rent. Life jackets are included with the tours.

Raffle prizes  will be drawn at 11:45 a.m., 1;45 p.m., and 3:45 p.m. In the event of foul weather all events move to the party at Elk Country RV.

    This is great - I'll be there! One question though: why is it closed in the first place?? I thought the state parks found enough money in their bank account to re-open all the parks...?

  2. That is a good one and I have wondered the same thing. Maybe we can find out the answer to your question on Sunday.
