Big Lagoon Park Humboldt County California Bonfires

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,


And if you are looking for hotels nearby, Trinidad has a hotel, subject to change.
