The road leading to Bottchers Gap is long, narrow and winding that cuts through a redwood grove. There are several houses along the road and it ends at the campground parking lot. All sites are on a first-come, first-serve basis, with no reservations accepted. Sites have a pit and a table only. Be warned there are no water bibs of any kind in the entire campsite and the bathrooms are terrible! I have no problem with pit style toilets but these look (and smell) like they haven’t been cleaned out since the 80s.

Overall the campsite is not very enjoyable. The sites are very small and on a slant. Our site may look big in the pictures but it is really two next to each other. The views are decent but there is poison oak EVERYWHERE. Not just here and there but all in the sites, the trails, the bathroom areas, etc. You have to be extremely careful where you walk and forget about letting your dog more than 4 feet from you. That made for a very unhappy puppy. lol
