Big Lagoon County Park Campground Review by on . Big Lagoon Campground in Humboldt County, California is small rustic campground offering shaded beach front camping. Rating: 2.3

Big Lagoon County Park Campground is located in Humboldt County, California and is a small rustic campground offering shaded beach front camping. The campground is easily accessible from US Highway 101 and the nearby city of Eureka and is popular with windsurfers and kayakers. While Big Lagoon County Park Campground is rustic, it does offer a number of amenities, a boat launch, including picnic tables, fire rings, bathrooms, and firewood sales. All campsites in Big Lagoon County Park Campground are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Big Lagoon County Park Campground Bottom Line

Big Lagoon County Park Campground is an easy camping getaway if you are in the area, but we would not recommend it as a camping destination. Since Big Lagoon County Park Campground lacks privacy many campers try to create privacy by stringing rope and sheets or positioning cars between campsites. If you do plan to camp here, we recommend that you get one of the campsites situated along the beach/lagoon, as they offer more privacy. A few great things about Big Lagoon County Park Campground is that you are allowed to have beach fires, the boat access to the lagoon, and you are near the ocean.
