Don't expect anything fancy, just a clean and safe place to park your RV that is close to the river. If you are in Happy Camp CA you are probably there to fish the Klamath River. This crossroads town is located about 65 miles west of Yreka with nothing in between, so if its glamor you are looking for Happy Camp ain't it! But if its fishing and a micro town atmosphere it is great. The Bigfoot RV Park offers clean easy access grass spots that are safe and quiet. The owners are helpful and friendly. They were most welcoming to us and offered us use of their phone and also put us in touch with a wonderful local Klamath river fishing guide. The restrooms are spotless, Complete with towels! The electrical hookup has 50 amps, but is a little off from where they should be, so be sure you have enough cord with you. Wi-Fi worked great, no cable anywhere up there, but gas is available and basic groceries, and of course fishing licenses are sold at the general store. We are definitely going back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The drive into the park is steep and has sharp curves but is it doable. There were at least 3 sites large enough for our 40' motorhome and 1 was a pull through. The park is along the Klamath River, quiet and very nice. We would stay there again. There is no cell/Internet reception. We camped here for 1 week. We camped here in a Motorhome.
