Date of Stay:

Friendly office staff (owners), well-maintained campground, mature trees. Little space between RV sites, but adequate. Burr clover everywhere - dog left with a dozen "burrs" in his tail. Not a good campground choice for disabled campers - restroom access from even the closest campsites very difficult.

Date of Stay:

Trees and grass and shrubs - very pleasant park. Well maintained, walking distance to a good brew pub (Eel River Brewing) and a pizza restaurant. Quiet and removed from town and traffic (several motels nearby). We've stayed here twice, one night each, but it would be a pleasant place to stay while day tripping to the Lost Coast, Fernwood, Eureka or Arcata. With tent camping and cabins, it could be a good meeting place for groups/families.

Date of Stay:

Large, nicely landscaped park with friendly staff. Grass and quite a few mature trees. Several sections of the park, each with multiple sites, have tall screening shrubbery. Interior roads are not on a strict grid which makes dog walking (on leash) more pleasant. Third time we've stayed but only one night each time on our way to an end destination. Wednesday night in summer at 5:30 pm and we got the last spot - lesson learned, will call ahead next time. Quiet park, but close and easy access to 101. Across the road from agriculture land, but Arcata a few miles away and Eureka 15 minutes south. Grocery store and other shopping shopping across the freeway, Mexican restaurant adjoining the park.

We loved this campground. It's large with some full hookup RV sites and some water and electric. There are tent sites, some OK for small RVs and some very attractive with short rock walls around the perimeter of the site. The campground has many tall trees and sites have shrubs on three sides = privacy screens. Reservations are a must in summer - campground was full each of the 3 nights we were there (different spot each night since we didn't make reservations soon enough). Restrooms/showers were spotless. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Helpful, friendly office staff - family-run. Everything a bit tattered but in a good way - old campground, well-maintained. We stay here when visiting family in Eugene and prefer it to the fancier RV park across the freeway, probably because with our small camper van we feel more at home. Long, long ago this was a KOA.

This was our next to last stop on a 47-day cross country trip during which we stayed in 37 parks and campgrounds. LOVED this park - definitely one of the top 3 of our trip. The spaces are close, but there are lots of trees, and everything is exceptionally well maintained. There are 2 small grassy areas for relaxing and a dog area. We travel with a dog and really, really appreciated the dedicated dog wash inside a small fenced area. There was a large laundry tub, hose with sprayer, hot and cold water, counter area to dry off - perfect for our dirty 13-pound dog. Such a thoughtful thing to provide. Staff was very friendly and helpful. This park is a labor of love for the owners. We got very lucky arriving without reservations and getting the last space; strongly suggest calling ahead for reservations!

Lordsburg is a bleak, former railroad town "in the middle of nowhere" but often a logical place for a night's stop. This KOA worked for us. It seems minimal, and the landscape certainly is, but this is harsh country for growing a lush garden. There is little shade ,but the trees are doing the best they can. The staff was very friendly, the grounds well-maintained, the bathrooms clean and well supplied. All the usual KOA amenities are here from tent sites to cabins; it just isn't the place to plan to spend any length of time unless you really, really love the desert.
