Heading towards the National Conservation area in California, Mattole Campground is a perfect place to stay. You can get here by driving through Humbolt State Forest on the 101 to Mattel Road, which is also known as the “Long Coast”. Along the way, be sure to visit the Avenue of the Giants in Weott and the lighthouse at Punta Gorda. Since Mattole Campgrond is located where the Lost Coast Trail begins, many hikers stay here. The Lost Coast Trail covers a stretch of over 25 miles with scenic views of the coastline, redwood trees, and rugged peaks overlooking the Pacific. Pay attention at the bluffs with the vistas as they can provide as a perfect spot for some whale-spotting opportunities.
