Slate Creek Trail Camp

California > San Francisco Bay Area > Portola Redwoods State Park

Site 4

This backcountry trail camp is on a gently-sloping hillside among second-growth woods. It’s an easy 3-mile hike from the trailhead but it has a nice remote feel. The woods are pleasant but unremarkable.

Most people either do a quick out-and-back hike from the Portola Redwoods visitor center, or use the camp as a stopping point for the challenging Peters Creek hike.

There’s no water and no fire pits at the camp.

The camp is generally really quiet, although once in a while you can hear the distant sound of motorcycles from Skyline Boulevard.
