Big Lagoon in Humboldt County Parks system offers bonfire
opportunities, along with camping.
Big Lagoon bonfires are exceptional on those cool north coast
days and evenings. Located seven miles north of Trinidad, Big
Lagoon is a camping destination which doesn't require
reservations, and offers a maximum 30 day stay, subject to
change. With a boat ramp, public beach, trails permitting dogs &
horseback riding, and tent sites, the beach is a great place to
not only visit for the day, but also stay and camp.
The beach bonfire rules that are in place for many Humboldt
County beaches are the same here: you can collect firewood and
driftwood from the beach and burn it, you can make a bonfire 30
inches in diameter or less as long as it's 100 feet seaward and
away from vegetation/dunes and other things that could burn. And
sometimes you may find firewood for sell on location. The park
charges a day fee to enter, but it's only a couple dollars.
Directions: Exit Highway 101 at Big Lagoon Park Road and follow
the signs. Fee for Day Use and Camping applies. For information, check out the county website, co.humboldt.ca.us.
And if you are looking
for hotels nearby,
