Elks Members Only. Back-in sites only. Very good Digital Cable, Wi Fi available, Verizon OK, Dog Friendly. Construction of larger building ongoing. Loss of some RV sites until completed. Great spot to stay when doing "West Coast Elks Tour". Located in quiet neighborhood. Very friendly lodge. Will stop again. Eureka Golf Course approx. 1/2 mile away. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place was great!!! I'm not sure what the other reviewers have against this place, but for us, it worked out awesome!! The people were friendly, there was lots to do for the kids, the bathrooms and showers were spotless, and we liked it so much that we stayed here twice in a week while traveling to another place. This is one of the better KOA's that we have stayed at and I will definitely stay here again if I'm in the northern California area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I guess it's a good place to see Eureka. It's typical of KOAs in most places with dirt roads and sites. This one is a bit on the old and worn side and the grass needed mowing when we were here. Cable TV is iffy and does not have many channels and the wi-fi is really bad. People are nice, which is always a good thing. Will try someplace else next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our rate reflects several discounts. Like most KOAs, this one is right off highway, so there's road noise; and minimal landscaping. OK for an overnight stop , but nothing more. Kudos to management for having lots of recycling bins. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice KOA great facilities, clean grounds, and lovely laundry. Supernice store. Friendly staff. The owner has installed net gear nanny sitting so 95% of the internet is blocked and I don't mean just porn. I mean almost everything any sane adult might wish to access is blocked including most of the newspaper articles from my home town newspaper, all deemed inappropriate for my eyes by the Netgear supernanny. We stopped here for two nights because of a forecast storm on our planned route and we didn't care to wrestle with a gale. We picked the place precisely because the internet is usually good at a KOA and we were going to be looking at a full day of rain and wanted the internet to work. Very big disappointment. And FOX news channel did not work either. Bad attitudinal thing here. We will Not come back to Nannyland-KOA any time again. Ever. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here one night while traveling through. Since it is off-season, most of the sites seem to go for the same rate. We had a pull-through site near the dog area which was great for us. Sites are gravel and, had we been staying longer, we would have worked on leveling but for one night, we didn't bother. The park was probably about 1/6 full. It looked like they had a lot of nice amenities for the summer months including miniature golf and a pool but they were closed for the season. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Cable TV is not good it is fuzzy, and all channels did not work. WIFI is slow and did not connect many times. Owner blocks sites like Fox News and ABC. There are up to fifty septic tank vents pipes about six feet tall in the park. Our site had one on each side,and there was an odor at times. Roads are paved, sites are gravel. Turns are tight; not big rig friendly. Tough to get into the park as you have to make a left turn crossing Hwy 101 if you are coming south. Hwy 101 is very busy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are camping here with kids you are probably ok. Plenty for them to do, but this place is kinda ratty and not well kept. You are a good 35 miles to the Redwoods and Eureka is a typical CA seaside town. Old, beat up and not real pretty. We rarely stay at KOA's. We are retired and just looking for a nice, clean, safe place with peace and quiet. This is not it. Would not stay here again and cannot recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was a little hard to find, tucked behind another business, but was really a nice place to stay. Everything worked fine and we were able to visit the Samoa Cookhouse for a lumberjack lunch. Don't miss this, just bring an appetite! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This RV park has so much to do for families with small children that it could be the entire vacation spot. Wonderful pancake breakfast on the weekend for only $3. Huge serving of ice cream and all the toppings for only $2 each evening. Hay ride and camp fire every evening. Pool, playground, basketball, teeterball, video games and on and on. Kids will not want to leave. Nice fairly level sites. Most are pull throughs. Friendly staff. Clean rest rooms. The only thing I can fault is the spaces are close together. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean and friendly campground. Level sites, good cell phone, good Wi-Fi, good satellite signals. The maintenance here was very good and everything was well kept. Close to shopping, right between Eureka and Arcada. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Clean older park. The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a 30 amp site towards the back of the campground and my hardwired voltage/surge protector kept kicking off. I checked the power and it was running at between 102 and 107 volts. I wound up disconnecting the power for the night. The check-out staff were apologetic and reduced my fees to the non-hookup rate, and indicated they weren't aware of low voltage issues. It may have just been the one site, but it was aggravating. We would stay here again, but I will be checking the line voltage. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Helpful and friendly staff. Facility is old and in need of repair. North end of town; highway convenient. Plenty of "kamp" activities for kids, but not much to see in town. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
This is a nice park with all the amenities that you expect in a KOA. There are lots of things for the children to do - including two bunny rabbits housed near the office. Wi-Fi, Verizon and AT&T worked well here. The park was beautifully kept and we had just enough room to park in our large rig with the trailer still hooked up. We would return to this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a larger park with plenty of space. Lots of pull-through spaces that can accommodate the largest rigs. I would definitely stay here again. One caution -- the location given on this web site is not the true location. Also, the GPS coordinates listed in the Trailer Life directory are wrong. If you use Mapquest, it will show the wrong location, and typing the address into my Garmin GPS came out wrong as well. Actual location is about 4 miles north of Eureka (2 miles south of Arcata) right off U.S. 101. The map on the KOA web site is correct. Wi-Fi was good when it was working, but was out half the time. Office is closed between noon and 3 PM. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very neat park. The managers were always out and about working. The park is located about 5 miles north of Eureka on the 101. We had a grass pull through surrounded by grass. Free Wi-Fi was very good. Both AT&T and Verizon had good cell coverage. Verizon data was also good. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean, nice grassy sites, across the street from the water. You do enter past a lumber yard and almost think you might be in the wrong place but the access was wide open when I was there and I had no problem manuevering with my 38' truck/trailer combo. Wifi was free and reliable. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed based on information that they had pet breed restrictions, parked close to pit bulls, could not walk our little dogs, complained to useless manager who said anything goes as long as owners sign a waiver so no breed restrictions. Drive in through a dump of a lumber yard into park so tight we had to disconnect car to maneuver in. Only good feature was the maintenance fellow who tried to be helpful. Heard from other campers that manager was always unresponsive to the many complaints about the park and very apologetic. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Full time RV'er and I always come back to Eureka KOA because they are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I have never been disappointed when I stay here. They have upgraded their cable and Wi-Fi and it works wonderfully. Out of all the places I have stayed, this is the cleanest campground. The amenities are nice and the summer activities are wonderful for my grand-kids. I recommend this campground to anyone traveling to or through Eureka. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the least favorite KOA we have stayed in, and makes us question how they got the 'KOA' brand. The campground is in the middle of small industrial buildings and a large lumberyard. Little to no trees, small sites, and no privacy. Wi-Fi was basically useless during our visit. We were scheduled for 2 nights and left after one. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is nice. The Pool/jacuzzi was wonderful. The older people in office were great, but the young girls not very friendly. We had mechanical problems and had to stay there longer than planned. When we asked if we could stay longer than a week we were told by young staff that 1 week limit. If we didn't vacate after that 7 day period we would be towed away. We talked with older couple who told me we could stay as long as needed. The flowers are breathtaking. The only down sides to the park are no trees and VERY VERY slow if at all internet service. I would stay here again if passing through. The community not my type of destination, there are too many homeless, but none in park itself. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here 8 nights, would have moved to another park if we could have found a site in the area. A lady, that is a member of the church that owns it, manages this park. We never saw her but did have several unpleasant encounters with here teenage children who appeared to be in charge. We could not see any evidence of cleaning or maintenance in the park. They should not be able to advertise the cable TV, it was worthless since it would come and go every 30 minutes and when we had the best picture it was barely watchable. They do not have any of the big networks on their cable, NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, none of these. The WiFi was usable but very slow. We learned from one of their long-term campers that if you wanted anything, you needed to catch the older WorkKamper couple that worked weekend nights, they were very helpful and tried their best considering that there is no apparent support from management. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is just alright. Location is good close to highway 101, however the park is surrounded by industrial sites that take away from the location. We have stayed at a number of KOA's and this one is only average compared to others. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Real average park. The manager was not even there when we pulled in. The 30 AMP service was real funky; make sure you check it in your site. Not a very good value for the money, we felt. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Convenient location traveling from CA to OR. Wide sites. EZ on and off 101. Inexpensive. This is another KOA park that does a good job of maintaining consistent standards. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Was a great place to overnight. Daytime personnel was great! Night personnel was horrible. Night staff was very rude and yelled a lot at the kids on the grounds. We ended up stuck over due to forest fires blocking off the roads so had to pull back in for another nights stay. The night staff were on already and when we stated we had been there the prior two nights and would like the same site back since it was open, we were told it was reserved. We were shoved next to a couple live-ins and the park was empty. The next day on check out, noticing the site was still open, we spoke to the day staff and told them of the check-in. She graciously credited us back half the nights fee and apologized over and over again. She stated she would let the owners know and that our original site was never reserved. This KOA was very clean and we would stay again since the day staff was extremely professional and friendly but watch out for that night staff. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were able to find this campground very easily, (came from the north). Wish the onramp going southbound on 101 was better though. There are no full grown trees here. Made the place look a little run down. They have planted trees but its going to be a few years. We were here on a Friday night in July. We were able to get in without a reservation but the place was crowded and noisy with families. I have kids myself but just seemed like the place was over run with kids! The staff was very friendly but the staffer that checked us in was new, we asked and paid for full hookups but ended up moving three times because she kept putting us in a spot with electric only. The interior roads were in poor condition. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park was staffed with very nice and polite employees. The restrooms and all common areas were very clean. The park however has a real run down look. Little has been done for many years to make the overall appearance of the park look very good. However, the entrance does have some nice flowers and landscaping. Some have commented that it was hard to find and hard to get into. We had no difficulty finding or getting in after dark. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very friendly staff, between two cities, on the outskirts of Eureka and very near Arcata, Beautiful Redwoods north or south on Rt 101. Visited for 6 months. Ice cream socials, very active with the kids. family oriented. nice playground, camping cabins, cottages. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has a convenient location to explore Eureka/Arcata. However, it is located right on Hwy 1, in a very busy stretch of road with no other access available. The sites were all dirt and marginally maintained. In a land full of some of the biggest trees in the world, there were none at the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
KOAs vary between good and bad. This one is typical in that it's overpriced for what you get. The place was hard to get into and the beat up asphalt speed bumps and divits make it a rough driveway for a 40' class A. The sites are adequate but non-spectacular and they were pitched enough that I needed blocks under the front jacks to let the hydraulic levers reach. From the previous reviews it looks like they are trying to bring it up but they have a ways to go yet. Still, it's a decent location for seeing that area and we weren't around much anyway except to eat and sleep so it didn't bother us too much. I might look around and try someplace else next time though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Some, but not much, has changed since last review. Still lots of heavy equipment in use and daily bonfires to burn debri. The worst thing is finding the entrance; you have to pull into the driveway of a lumber yard, go around to one side and then you'll see the campground. We missed it the first time and had to go way out of our way to come back. There's nothing in the KOA campground guide directions that give you a clue about this problem. On the positive side, it appears they are making an effort to improve the place - new sod is being laid, outside workers busy the 2 days we were there, and the staff was pleasant and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's hard to believe this is actually a KOA camp as it was more like a dump. The place looked like a disaster zone. They had a note up talking about a storm in December, but A)this area is known for storms and B) it was three months later [we were there in March]. While we were there, they had a nearly continuous group of tractors and heavy equipment removing every tree in the campground. (Crash, diesel noise and fumes!) There was debris everywhere. The single ingress/egress road was often blocked with heavy equipment so you could neither go in or leave. They advertised a hot tub but the hot tub was out of order. They advertised a game room but the game room was out of order. The heater in the men's room was broken. The cold setting on the washer left our clothes steaming from heat. They advertised internet access. The clerk begrudgingly let us get on the computer the first couple days, but became more and more surly (she said she needed to balance her check book on it) and finally removed the computer so that no customers could use it at all. Many of the bbq grills were laying on their sides. The first site we tried had such a big hole on one side that i couldn't get our RV level. I had my first RV in 1988 and have used campgrounds since 1984. The six days we spent here were the worst place I have seen. Surely there should be some minimum quality requirement to carry the KOA name. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

Very few campers at this site at this time of year. Had privacy as we were the only camper in our area. Facilities were clean; office staff was friendly. On-site rec room with pool table and arcade were open daily; pool/hot tub is seasonal. Store seemed well-stocked. Location was fairly quiet considering it is just off of the highway. We camped here in a Truck Camper.

This is not the best KOA I have stayed at. We were in a tent site, the most private one of all and that isn't saying much. The spaces are really packed in. The bathrooms were acceptably clean, but not as clean as other places. The staff was very helpful and the service was good. It is pretty quiet with the campground abutting a field with pipes in it and a hillside. There are a couple of businesses near the entrance, but they weren't noisy. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This marina is on a spit of land sticking out into the sea and is full of longer term and permanent residents. Many obviously fishermen type: both anglers and workers on big boats with families and kids. The owners are nice enough and friendly. There are seafood restaurants nearby and some low sand dunes within an easy walk. There is no WiFi, no cable, no washroom facilities, no showers, the lots are small and narrow, and all back in. The place is essentially a parking lot. I liked it because it felt "real" and not tourist. Fine for an overnight stop if you are self sufficient, and cheaper than most places in the area. We would have stayed for a week but we need WIFI. We would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As a travel nurse we have to move every 13 weeks. This time we stayed 9 months and all of them at the marina. This is like an extended family. The owners are friendly, the other campers are nice and fun and its an overall great spot. Its on the ocean and the dogs loved their daily walks there. We never had an issue with theft, loud neighbors, or dogs, and most everyone was respectful that we were day sleepers. Not a lot of amenities, but a great place to stay for nice ocean access and an awesome restaurant within a very short walk. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is an older site, with mostly permanent rigs it appears, but an OK place for one night before traveling on. Full hookup for $25 in California seems really cheap from what I've seen. No discounts. The manager was really helpful and friendly, in fact hung around to register me and help me park after I called near their closing time. No restrooms, so you must be equipped with your own. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Parking lot in a shabby part of town, but seems safe. Very quiet, next to the ocean, wide spaces. Cable TV only available to long-term campers (which most were). Showers were closed for the season. Affordable place for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is definitely not a destination park. It is a relatively tight parking lot although there is big rig maneuverability. There was a fair occurring at the time of our stay but the noise was only mildly annoying. Utilities were good with the exception of wifi which was weak. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate of $17.50 is Passport America and requires a two night stay. The RV park is part of the fairgrounds. No signage for RV park but pull into Gate 1. Some sites cement, some gravel, and some grass. Utilities are all good, electric water and sewer. WiFi is excellent. We did not use the restrooms or shower as they require a $25 deposit for key. We would stay here again as the redwoods are great! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very pleasant. Friendly and helpful hosts and front office people. Easy set up with lots of room to maneuver and walk the dogs. Best part was we picked blackberries from the back fence! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Traffic starts with workers in the fairgrounds as early as 5am. Constantly driving by with heavy equipment. Had someone trying to break into our outside storage compartments 3 times around midnight until we finally went outside with a weapon, and it stopped. Was in the shower in the RV the next day, and someone put a key in the door trying to open it, then yanked on it violently. Found a bunch of pot and smoking pipes at the fence behind the RV spots. We will never stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a good place to stop for a rest. It is gravel and dusty. The wireless network works okay most times. The sites are narrow and long enough to have a tow vehicle in the same space. If the park was full you would not be able to open your slide if your neighbor had one. There are auto races each night ending at 11 pm so you may need ear plugs. They take Good Sams and AAA cards for a 5 dollar discount, other wise the rate is 25 dollars a night. I would stay here again if need be. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great location for visiting Eureka. It is basically a gravel parking lot with some paved sites near the entrance. The wifi worked well. There is enough space between units and sites were fairly level. No picnic tables. Some sites back onto a fenced, treed area. The road was extremely busy on Saturday because of an event at the fairgrounds. It was interesting getting into and out of the campground during the busy times because of the high volume of traffic. The campground host were friendly. The $20 rate is based on Good Sam or AAA and includes full hook ups, showers and wifi. The showers were really gross, but the water was hot. The shower curtains are like garbage bags with mold for lack of a better description. I'd recommend using the shower in your RV if you have one. The campground was quite at night. We would stay here again because of the great value, strong wifi and location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Directions to park need updated. From Highway 101 in town, north or south, take R St, which turns into Myrtle Ave. Follow Myrtle Ave. to Hall St., turn right. Hall Ave. turns into Harris St. From the fairgrounds, the left turn from Hall onto Myrtle Ave is a busy intersection, with limited views up and down Myrtle Ave. If following directions, Harrison Ave. is a busy hospital street. Sites are off Main paved fairgrounds road. Most sites are on dirt with limited gravel. My site had trash. Water spigots are almost at ground level. Water and electric are placed towards back of site. Sewer hook-ups are towards the front of site, otherwise trailer could be backed up further. Host on site. Trash disposal by restrooms and showers. My last two visits here the park has had permanent residents. Across from me is a large group with a messy site, lots of traffic. I would stay here again. The most convenient place to stay in Eureka, with no highway noise, even though Harris Ave. traffic can be heavy. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an okay park for an overnight, but I wouldn't want to stay here for long. The park host was very pleasant and helpful. The Wi-Fi worked great. There are no picnic tables and if all sites are taken, you have about 6 feet between your door and the other camper's slide out. We had to share the connections with the camper next to us. He had used the 30 amp, so we ended up with 20, as we didn't have a converter for the 50 amp. We were backed up to a 10ft hill, with no view except people walking there dogs on the top of the bank. It was quiet during the night, but the traffic through the park started around 6:30 am. While we were here there was a construction crew staying at the end of the park, which started moving early (6:30). We would probably not stay here again, even though the price was okay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Don't let appearances send you away. This park is OK. It looks a little rough, but everything works. Good wireless internet. There are a few full concrete pads near the front, otherwise it is grass/dirt. Half the sites back up to some tall Redwoods, so the sun (if there is sun) disappears mid afternoon. For $20 a night, full hookups, it is just fine. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate shown Good Sam discount. Site gravel back-in and not level. Standing water around some sites due to poor drainage. Campground host not available so long walk to office to register. Did not use WI-FI as was not given password at time of registration and office closed early. No cable, but several channels available off antenna. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a bare-bones stopping place. We paid $20/night with the $5 Escapees discount for full 50 amp hookups. The park consists of one straight paved road with back-in gravel sites on each side. Most of the sites were very level, and all of them were deep and wide enough for any size rig. They are all double sites, though, with two sites sharing a water and electric pedestal. If both sites are in use, one party gets the 50 amp hookup and the other gets the 30 amp connection, and they will be quite close together. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The park was kept quite clean. The restrooms and showers were large, basic concrete facilities that were very clean. Good Wi-Fi. Not a great place for dogs. There is no place to walk a dog other than the fenced pet area, about 20' x 35'. The rules prohibit walking or exercising dogs on the fairgrounds, and the park is on a busy road with no sidewalk, or even a shoulder, to walk on. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The fairgrounds in Eureka offer a no-frills, economical place to park. They provide full hook-ups, good wifi and a convenient location. Sites are level, grass and easily accessed. AT&T phone and data service worked well. All units must be self contained so the old, uninviting restrooms probably get little use. It was surprisingly quiet and peaceful with a resident doe and fawns in the stable area. Occasional heavy trucks and horse trailers went through during the day or evening but the gate to the campground is locked at night and a guard was present during a public event to stop random traffic into the RV area. The price reflects a Good Sam discount. We would be happy to stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our price was based on a AAA / Good Sam rate. (Normal price was $25.) This is a "No Thrills" campsite, conveniently located in Eureka. Everything they offered was good, including the WiFi. The (2) showers were just fine, hot enough with good pressure. We were on a fully paved site near the road, but we did not have any problem with noise. There is a Safeway and a Walgreens in walking distance, and it is about 10 minutes drive to the center of downtown Eureka. The "Camp Hosts" were very kind and gave us free tickets to the "Stock Car Racing" at the fair ground, which we really enjoyed. We would stay here again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Arrived to find cardboard sign saying campground was closed for the duration of our reservation due to upcoming rodeo/carnival. Camp host went to office and resolved issue for us. The sites are long, grassy (some muddy spots), various levels and easy to back into. The width was ok, but any lanai would have to be at the back. The sewer receptacles were higher than our exit valve, which made emptying too risky for spillage. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The normal rate is $25, with a $5 discount for Good Sam/AAA etc. No frills, but its a good inexpensive place to base from for going through the Redwoods and Avenue of the Giants. Ferndale was a wonderful town with lovely restored Victorian homes. The host is very helpful and nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice place to camp, quiet, very nice and a friendly camp host that watches out for everyone. The ground was a little boggy but there are back up sites with concrete pads if you want them. You have to go way into town to get to the fairgrounds. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is a bargain, but we should warn you that it’s a large gravel parking lot with no real amenities. Still, it’s a much better deal than any of the neighboring campgrounds, and we liked the fact that it was very roomy. Our spot was level and easy to get into. We were pleased that the camp host came around and collected money. The free Wi-Fi worked great. The Spartan bathrooms had good security (you needed a key code to get in), but the men’s room was not clean. We attended a (free!) Halloween party at the fairgrounds and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We also toured historic downtown Eureka while we were there and loved the place. The $20 price is good if you belong to any of the common discount clubs (AAA, Good Sam, Escapees). Cash or check only. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I stayed in this park for a total of 6 nights. This campground is part of the fairgrounds and has a very basic layout with sites side-by-side, backed up to Redwood trees. It was not busy during most of my stay, therefore I had plenty of room between my motorhome and the next one. However, during the weekend the fairgrounds had stock car races and roller derby and the campground was noisy from the events and space became very tight with the extra motorhomes parked here. Events were usually over by 10 pm and patrons were respectable in leaving. If noise bothers you, check the event schedule before your stay. The shower facility had a security code required to enter but was very basic with just a hook to hang your gear. It would have been nice to have a bench to set things on. Sequoia Park is within walking distance and is a beautiful place to hike or picnic. There is a nice grocery store 1/4 mile from the campground as well. With the full hookup discounted price of $20/night, I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The price above is with a discount. The regular price is $25 per night. This is a great place to just park it. There are no amenities, so don't expect anything. It is in the fairgrounds and is just about a parking spot but you are backed up to redwoods right behind you. They give great shade in the afternoon. You don't have the high price of the other local rv parks, that is why I rated it so high and no campfires like public parks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first stay in a fairground type RV park so we didn't know what to expect. It wasn't a fancy resort, but it was great for the price. The kids loved to see the horses in the stables, along with the deer and raccoons that lived in the area. The showers could use some maintenance and upkeep. The Wifi was great though. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This place is no 8 unless you are in and out for one night. Beware the electric here, we use a surge protector for the entire coach, thank God. The power was fine at first, but I do not hookup right away as we needed to work the genset for an hour or so. When I checked the 50 amp the voltage was ok and I clicked off the breaker. The 30 amp breaker was on so I clicked it off as well. Somehow the two hot feeds into the breakers must have touched, after running the genset when I went to hookup the shore power I was getting 250+ volts hitting the surge protector, which did not allow power to go through. We used the genset that night and in the morning the wires seemed to have moved apart because the voltage was fine. The second big item is the traffic, overnight it is very quiet here. But there are horse stables that are only accessed by driving through the campground, and man could they fly though all day long. CG was almost empty so they might slow down a bit if it was busier. Not a place for kids to be outside playing. But as mentioned the rate is good and the area is safe, just beware the electric. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good park to stay if you are in the Eureka area and want a place to satisfy your basic RVing needs - full hook-ups and free WI-FI. The rate is normally $25/night, but with AAA or Good Sam's, it's $20/night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
For the price it is an excellent value. With GS the price was 20.00. Really surprised at the good wifi at no additional cost. You can either go to the yellow bldg or wait for the host to come around about 6:00 pm I talked to a deputy Sheriff to see if the park was safe and was assured that there was no problems. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
While it is located on one side of an access road, there was little traffic. The gates are closed at 10 pm, so it is quiet at night. The morning traffic starts at about 4:30 am and is heavy near 7 am. Most sites back up to a forest so there is afternoon shade. Very close to historic Eureka. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a fairgrounds campground. It is really just a parking lot, but ok for the reasonable rate in this part of California. The road is paved & wide. Sites are backin, gravel/grass and not very level. Sites have side by side hookups. The park is about 5 miles off Highway 101. It is easy for a big rig to get in to. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Multi purpose facility. Stayed over the weekend (had stock car racing). City ordiance makes them stop 11pm because of noise. Staff friendly, close to shopping and dining. Not much more than a parking lot w/ hook-ups. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a no frills park in a good location of Eureka. It is clean and well maintained. Office hours seem to be sketchy but when we arrived we were checked in quickly and efficiently. The sites are a little tight, as are the access roads, but manageable. The sewer connection was at the back, so be sure and have a minimum 30' sewer hose. Cable and Wi-Fi worked well. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is adjacent to 101, so you can hear the highway, but it's just a background noise, it's not intrusive. Slots are long - my fifth-wheel and truck are 45' and I had at least another 15'. This place is basically a parking lot with narrow grass strips between the spots and there are no tables outside, no general store, etc. However, Target is just across the freeway and the park is just a minute from the Waterfront/Old Eureka district (but not walking distance). The camp director is a nice guy and provided excellent advice on where to park when we went to the waterfront, etc. We would stay here again for a night or two. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice little park with VERY friendly hosts. We were here only one night. Called the day before for reservation and were placed in a very nice level (hardly any leveling needed) space. Wi-Fi and cable were excellent. Only complaint? was the grass between the spaces was somewhat long. This may have to do with the climate, but made for some wet shoes. Also, quite close to highway 101, so there is some road noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is not a destination in itself, but we used it as a central location to explore Eureka, Ferndale, the Humboldt Redwoods State Park, and Prairie Creek Redwoods SP. The hook-ups are good, the sites are mostly level, cable is included (though we found a better picture with regular TV), and the sites have grass between them. They have planted trees which will shade future RV'ers. There are a few rule but they only help keep the campground maintained and make it nice for all. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The good news is..... each site is LOOOOONNNNNNNGGGGGG, and paved. There is a good bit of grass for separation between sites. The bad news? SHORELINE? WHAT SHORELINE? Also, the park is next to the highway, road noise. Located next to a gas station and a major motorcycle dealer. However, the nice friendly "chap" who checked me in assured me the area was very safe. Since it's winter, you have to phone the office for someone to come check you in. I'm giving it an 8 because the check in staff person was very nice, and the park is very clean. No frills, but there is a small clean laundry room (3 washers, 3 dryers), and clean bathrooms. I have to come back to Eureka in two weeks for a night and I'm definitely staying here. This is good for an overnight or short term. The rate I'm showing is Good Sam Discount plus taxes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Good Sam rate for the week. Park has very large sites, and is well maintained. Wi-Fi worked good, though a little slow. The manager was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay at this park again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Shoreline RV we called the Land of NO. First, where is the shore??? No shore. The park was super clean and really, really close to the road. When I called the number I specifically asked about the road noise and the woman said the road noise quiets down after 8 pm. At check in the other lady was really slow and took about 15 minutes to check me in - like I wasn't already tired. The road noise never quieted down. We heard it all night long and that was the worse night's sleep I got on our trip. The laundry facilities were expensive to use. It was $2.00 each for wash and dry. So if you are thinking of this place to spend the night, I would travel down the road a bit and find somewhere else quieter. You do have that option. If I knew then what I know now I would of kept my money and gave it to someone else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice little park right along Highway 101. It seems to be fairly new. The trees are still small but there is lots of lush green grass between each site. Spaces are very long and most are pull-throughs. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, newer layout. Easy maneuvering. No picnic tables!! Good Wi-Fi and cable. If the only site available is wired for both 30 and 50 amp, you pay the 50 amp rate even if you only use the 30 amp plug-in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was the fourth time we stayed here and found this campground meets all our needs. The spaces are are long enough for my rig at 65'. I tow a trailer with my car and motorcycle on board. We used the bathrooms and laundry and found both to be clean and functional. The only issues I have are parking for cars and noise at the Harley Davidson dealer. There just isn't enough parking, and the bikes seemed to come in to get their pictures taken at all hours. The park has added another six spots behind the office. Yes, there are some long term residents here but there aren't any permanent residents with all the junk that entails. Next time we are in Eureka we will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is right off US 101. Very convenient to shopping, gas right next door. Utilities worked well, as did Wi-Fi and cable. Many pull throughs. We stayed for one week. Spaces were wide. Paved streets, clean. Check in was friendly and efficient. Close to downtown, beach and casinos. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean bathrooms and showers. Nice host. No fenced dog run. Nice clean and neat sites, but pretty utilitarian. Good place to stop going somewhere else, although we had a wonderful meal at Woodley's Marina. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I can't remember the nightly rate, but I believe it was in the mid $30 range if memory serves. We stayed at this park to attend a graduation at HSU and found it to be clean and with wide spacious sites. We arrived after the office was closed, but found an envelope in the laundry room with our reserved space and instructions, etc. A guy did come over and offer to help us park, but it was a pull thru space and I was able to get the job done all by myself. I am very talented it seems.....Ha! Very close to Hwy 101, but not all that much traffic noise so we slept well each night. There is a Target store right across the highway and it could be considered walking distance if you had on the right walking shoes. We stocked up on some grocery items, etc. Not much to do at the park itself, but we didn't stay there to be entertained. Shore power, sewer, water hookups, all worked fine, we had no problems. We would stay there again for certain if we were ever going thru Eureka and needed a place to drop anchor for the night. A tad windy due to being very near the inlet from the Pacific Ocean, but we had our hairspray so all was fine.......... We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very easy in and out if you are going south on 101 and just want a place for the night. Get your fuel on the same stop. Nothing special, but very convenient. The man that checked us in was quite friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Surly front desk manager, the facility was convenient, standard and only a few years old with some long termed. I would stay here again only if hospitality improves, otherwise I'll head to other places. Sometimes others can do a better job. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here in 2010 and liked the park. This time we are staying two weeks. The staff is very friendly and worked with me on some power issues I was having with the electrical systems. There are 50'-65' pull throughs and some back ins. I didn't have any problems getting into any site except one, #48. #48 is right next to the office and has a curb that most big rigs wouldn't be able to get in to. This park is right off US101 next to the Harley Davidson dealership. There's a Target right across US101. If I come to this area again I will be sure to stay here. The rate reflects the weekly with the Good Sam price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is weekly with GS discount. Price is fair for this park. Previous reviews are an adequate reflection. However, we found the Wi-Fi very spotty and used our MiFi at times during our stay. Easy in/out for big rigs, but sites small - neighbor's sewer line a little too close. No picnic tables - guess because the sites are too small. As non-California travelers, we were not aware of a regulation that washers' rinse cycle can only be filled halfway. But the first washer was not set correctly, so be sure to use that one. Again, OK for the price and we would stay here again. A good location for touring. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 3 nights. We got in late due to tire issues and the office was really helpful in helping find a place for repairs. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked great. There was some road noise, but overall a pleasant and secure place to spend the night. We would stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We liked this park even though we had asked for a 50 amp site for three nights and was given a 30 amp site. It seemed strange to us because the site next to ours was a 50 amp site and was used as a nightly site. The park was clean, well kept and the staff was friendly when around. The office was closed almost the whole three days we were there. They have installed a sprinkler system that goes off around 8:00 in the morning and if you are getting ready to move you can get really soaked trying to get ready to move. Overall though, we liked the park and would stay there again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our $22 nightly rate reflects CampClub USA membership, but is higher than 50% discount advertised. The grounds are asphalt with concrete pads. There is good grass between sites with chain link fence surrounding the property. Trash is placed in a single dumpster near the office and overflowed during our stay. Otherwise the grounds are quite clean. Sites are close together; in rows and columns. Management office is on site but unattended most of the time so self-registration is required along with a phone call. Laundry facility is well equipped and slightly overpriced but reasonable. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New park next to Hwy coming into town. All paved sites with no shrubs or trees between sites. Trees are planted. Some road noise during morning and evening rush hours. Office staff helpful, but only on site morning and late in day. Laundry room very clean. Cheapest gas in town is Costco, if you are a member. Great base for seeing nearby Ferndale (where movie Majestic was shot) and enjoying the beaches on Samoa Peninsula. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed our stay here. The park is relatively new and therefore somewhat spartan; however, it has great Wi-Fi, clean washrooms, laundry facilities and provided us with a very convenient base from which to tour the area with easy access from Hwy 101. The manager was very friendly and knowledgeable and she provided us with suggestions for touring the area. We had planned to stay for a few days but instead we extended our stay to nearly two weeks as there was much to do and see. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The price reflects the Camp Club USA discount. This is an interesting park and is kind of hard to figure how to get to your space. We self registered, then the owner showed up and we got 'er done. There was no shade as the trees are new. It is a really quiet place to stay. It is well located to use as a base camp for traveling around Eureka, which is a really neat place. Make sure to eat at the Samoa Cookhouse as it's a real treat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice, newer RV park. The pads are asphalt and not necessarily level, but only by a little. We did have to use one of our Lynx Levelers under each wheel to get the fiver level. Easy access from Hwy 101. Facilities are newer and nice. WI-FI worked great! We only spent one night but would happily stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I stayed here recently and was more than satisfied. Very well kept park and right off the highway for easy access. Showers and bathrooms were extremely clean and the site is close to Old Town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is in a great location on the edge of Eureka near the highway. Staff was very friendly and courteous. Each site has a nicely groomed lawn. The facilities are very clean and user friendly. Overall the site is in very good condition, everything appears to be fairly new. I would stay at this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice new park located close to all the local attractions. Spaces are very long (70'+), with green grass and trees between all spaces. Park is very well maintained. Management is very nice and helpful with local info. All RV's are newer and clean. No permanents. Very clean restrooms and laundry facilities. Convenient location next to HWY 101, but yet remarkably quiet. We stayed for one week and would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is not much more than a parking lot with hookups. To get to the entrance, you drive down a dead end road between a gas station and a Harley dealership. The staff is non-existent. Reservation calls go to voice mail to be returned later. To check-in, look for an envelope with your name pinned to the bulletin board in the laundry room. Once set-up, you call a number to state you have checked in. To read the Wi-Fi info, you needed a magnifying glass. So, if you want a parking lot experience with no staff, this is the place for you! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I stayed here just as an overnight and would not stay again. The office staff was very rude. They were not friendly or helpful and hung up on me a few times while I was calling to get directions. The park does not offer more than a place to park as there is no activities. There are better places to stay in Eureka. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A good place for a night or two. There are grass pads for each paved level site. The sites are very long. Only spent one short night here, but we would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
OK campground. Nice & quiet. Newer campground. No trees, but that isn't a problem as Eureka is usually overcast. Great for adults. This was good for our one night we spent there. I would not consider this a park for young families. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a one-night stopover on our way up to the Oregon coast. The park is a typical, “parking-lot” style RV park – no trees, but convenient in that most of the sites are pull-through and very long. The restrooms were clean, but appear to be unheated when we arrived mid-afternoon. This may be an issue, in that this area can be quite cool even in the summer. The laundry room also appeared clean and well maintained. The location is quite convenient to Highway 101. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The interior roads are paved and in great shape. Easy pull through. The staff was very friendly. The park was neat and clean. We did feel though that we were not allowed on the grass at our site. We noticed people sitting on the blacktop in their chairs. It is very close to Highway 101 so expect noise from there but it was easy access to north or south of Eureka. When we first called, the price per site was a little higher than I expected but in the end the price was lowered. I would never stay here for the original price quoted. Very close to the area attractions which we liked. Great Harley Davidson store right next door. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with other reviewers that this is a great place to stay in the Eureka area. Location is convenient and park has been recompletely renovated so that it looks new. Sites are paved and very long and spacious. Utilities are top notch, but, yes, you do need a long sewer hose at some sites. Noise from 101 might bother some people but it was not unpleasant to us. Close to Redwoods and all area attractions as well as great restaurants. Owner and office manager are extremely accommodating. Big Rigs will love this place and everything is very neat and clean with a pretty view of the estuary and bridge. Would return here anytime. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our rate was Good Sam with an extra person. Nice parking lot-type place. Could use some signs in the bathrooms explaining how to work the fans (on timers with the lights) and saying "no smoking." Wi-Fi was fast, plenty of cable channels. Road noise from US 101. Flat, long, pull-through sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I stayed here for about three months while working in Eureka. This is a fairly new park in an excellent location if you are visiting or working. The place is well maintained and has a very clean laundry room with three washer and three dryers; toilet/shower facilities are spotless. Do not let the Harley Davidson place next door scare you off--they are quiet. The park is on the slough near the bay and frequently gets some fierce winds, but if you are in the right location, you will get some great views of the slough and the hills to the east. There is a gas station and convenience store right as you enter the park off 101 on the north end of town. Target is across the highway and up the road also within walking distance are eateries, pharmacy, Radio Shack and Starbucks among other businesses that are helpful for the traveler. The highway runs by--not having parked in one of the spots close to the highway, I cannot comment on traffic noise coming from there. My complaints: They run the sprinklers in the grass and it left water spots on my truck. Office staff was very friendly and helpful but the owner I had an issue with; he ran over my sewer hose and cut it when he was mowing the lawn. When I brought it to his attention, he denied it saying it must have been a worn out hose (it was new) and drove off on his mower as he waved me off. I went to the office person who said he did not want to be bothered with things like that and I should come to her. Maybe so, but being the owner,he should have treated his paying customer with more courtesy. That being said, this is the nicest park in Eureka by far.I have stayed in RV parks all over CA and the southwest and for location, cleanliness and eye appeal, this rates up there with the better ones. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Reasonable park near amenities. First electrical hookup did not work. Second site had buckled pad. WI-FI good. Highway noise OK. Friendly staff, two people on the desk each time I visited. Nice store on site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy in and out pull-through site. Very clean park with grass and paved roads and spaces. Office looks new. Next to 101 highway so quite a bit of road noise but we only stayed one night. I would not recommend for long term stay however. Convenient to places to shop, dine and get in some site-seeing of local Eureka. Would recommend for short stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I stayed here for 6 months as I was working in the area. The restrooms and laundry room are spotless. The sites are a bit narrow but very long and not all of them are 50 amp. The office is open at irregular hours and the sites are not marked 30 or 50 amp so unless you get out and look at the post it is difficult to tell. Bring a long sewer hose as the sewer is at the very back of the site I was not bothered by Hwy noise even tho it is quite close to 101. They now have 2 WI-FI stations and it was excellent reception even tho I mostly used my aircard. The gal in the office is one of the nicest people to deal with. She is somewhat a "jack of all trades" so very willing to help out with any needs you may have. I hope to stay here again in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great campground at a great location! Cleanest showers and bathroom that I have seen in past year in 38 different states! Staff was very helpful and pleasant! Best for the price that you can find. I have a 41' motor home and a towed car which fit nicely on a paved drive through site with good 50 amp connection and a nice green grass space to step out on! Convenient to highway 101 and diesel fuel next door with a large Tartget store across the street. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not an RV resort, but an RV parking lot immediately adjacent (50 yards) to a very large Harley Davidson dealer and a Circle K/Union 76 gas station; across the street from a K Mart. The facilities are brand new, only a couple of months old as such they are in excellent condition. My site had 50 Amp service, but the identical site next to mine only had 30 Amp service and the Class A owner had to move the next day because he kept popping the circuit breaker. Why a brand new facility did not put 50 Amp throughout I don't know. The men's room had two showers (one handicap) and one toilet. No luxury here just clean facilities along side a commercial strip of highway. Oh yes, call for directions do not depend on your GPS as some streets do not go through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great park and the staff went above and beyond. I saw the comments on highway noise and did not find it a problem. The only thing is, follow the directions on their website, our gps led us astray using the address provided. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Brand-new park just opened in July 2008. Sparking clean restrooms/showers/laundry with friendly staff. High speed wi-fi works great. Would have given it a 10, but some road noise from nearby highway 101 and spaces are close together. Near California's magnificent coastal redwoods (National Park) and Pacific beaches. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
