Big Lagoon County Park Campground Review Summary
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.

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.
