The Lost Coast
In the 1920's, when they built the Coast Highway in Northern California, engineers decided a stretch of coast from Northern Mendocino County through the King Range in Humboldt County was too rugged for a road. Thus, this expanse of magnificent coastline was soon isolated and became known as the "Lost Coast".
Diverse wildlife within reach
We are home to many deer that like to hang out in the campground and on the golf course. We also have bald eagles, roosevelt elk, skunk and foxes. Not to mention our many sea creatures, such as whales, seals, sea lions, otters and fish of many different species.
Highly-valued seaside resort.
The small community of Shelter Cove, on the coast just below King Range, lies at the core of the Lost Coast. Being cut off from the rest of California has helped Shelter Cove become a peaceful seaside resort with peerless scenery that ia nirvana for outdoor enthusiasts. A relatively flat point set amidst a long stretch of sheer ocean cliffs, Shelter Cove gets its name from a gulf formed by Point Delgado to the south.
Events and Functions at Shelter Cove Campground.
From May to October we have many different events for those that are looking for something to do. In May we have our Kayak Conventions and Memorial Day celebration. May also starts our Campground Karaoke which takes place every other Friday night at 6:00 pm. During our holiday celebrations, we have BBQ's with chicken and ribs, fresh oysters which you can eat raw or have prepared on the grill for you. We also offer music for your listening pleasure all while you look out the the most beautiful of ocean views. Our campground is literally a two minute walk to the ocean.
