30 Parks near Crescent City, California
Aug 2016 - $36.00
A most personable and genuine couple are the managers (owners?) Over-the-phone reservation was easy, and everything known ahead of time if we arrived after the office closed. We did arrive in time, despite delay and detour for a bad accident on US101, and we settled in soon after.
Sites are gravel, level and have concrete patios; the combination power/water/cable demarcs are the high-end equipment, and on a concrete pad, as is the sewer (which is NOT higher than your tank connection, as is often the case). PLENTY of water pressure (good tasting too), and power is clean 123 VAC on each leg (30/50A).
There is also lots of room between sites. Open your slides, and there's still room for a tent or two between you and the next coach. Folks have griped about the "foghorn," we hardly heard it, and there's little to no street noise (we were here on Sunday night).
Didn't use them, but showers/restrooms were clean and up to date (we looked). A few "seasonal" folks, but every site was neat and tidy. No worries about your outside kit "growing legs" during the night, either.
This place isn't one of those "golf-resort" outfits, but it's a nice park, handy to stores, and well-priced. We'll stay here again, if we're back on the north California coast. - jtids

This park is a big parking lot with few trees and little grass. The spots are short but wide. Big rigs just barely fit. I think most people come for the fishing season as I saw many boats parked next to RV's. The office staff is friendly and helpful. The showers were old, but very clean with plenty of hot water. The WiFi was slow, but not terrible. The park is next to the California Coastal Trail so it is great for walking or biking. - WNC Traveler

Overnight stop driving up the coast. Big open blacktop lot with mostly back in sites. Pull through sites are a combination to 2 back to back pull in sites, which worked mostly OK with a little extra leveling. FHU which worked fine, but as usual wifi was hit and miss. Easy access in and out right at the port. Some permanent residence, which were mostly fine. Easy access into Crescent City. - RPWAINC

Older, run down park with many long term residents. Basic cable but we did not have WiFi. Did not visit every RV park in town, but the ones we saw all seemed run down like this one. - Namaste-1961

Manager nice and helpful but had no authority to do anything. Bathrooms appear to get cleaned maybe once a week. WiFi did not work, electricity worked occasionally, dogs off leash, children also off leash, stereos playing. Mobile home park mostly for residents. - yardperfect

Nice place to stay while visiting friends. Park was clean and well kept. Seen gentleman working all the time on keeping it clean and safe. They were almost full at the time and it was nice to have him there to help us because office was closed. Everybody there seemed nice. Had plenty of room for our dog and they kept it clean. All in all I would recommend this place. Redwoods were beautiful! - boise gap

Somewhat baffled by some of the other reviews. Service was very good. Site more than adequate. Easy to get to sites and to park. No issues with the berm or the noise from the foghorn. It was foggy during our entire stay so the foghorn blew the entire time. Crescent City is unlike some other towns nearby as it is not entirely dependent on tourists and we found most everything reasonably priced. A must see is the Redwoods! - Bamagolfer

We really enjoyed this park. It was clean, quiet and yes there is a fog horn but it wasn't that loud and had no problem sleeping with it. I didn't rate the showers as clean because of the sand people left in it. We would definitely stay here again. Great views of the ocean and lighthouse. - Rosie the dog

Spent 2 nights. FANTASTIC view of the bay but beware, Fog horn sounds every 10 seconds. It was VERY windy. So bad, I pulled the slideouts in fearing the awnings would tear. This park needs work. Gravel roads have deep ruts. No facilities for disposing of dog waste.
Dog feces all along the berm separating the park from the beach.
Stay here only if you are a sound sleeper. - gnlandrus

This private park has the look and feel of a wide open State Park. It's a great place to bring a group or have a family get together (or just to relax) We were very happy with the surroundings and the staff kept the place clean as a whistle.
There's some road noise if you're camped near the Hwy 101 side of the park, but it was not bad at all. We were in a 43 foot diesel pusher and our site was level, and plenty big enough to leave our towed vehicle hooked up. We'll definitely be back! - RV KEV

Dirt was plentiful and filled the air. They tried to help the dust by keeping the speed limit at 5mph but most vehicles did not abide by that, thereby leaving lots of dust flying. They also tried watering down the roads but that only worked around the office area. No cable but was able to get satellite. WiFi was useless as there were way too many users and the speed was a crawl. - Bill-1148

This is a perfect campground to view the redwoods and Pacific coast. It is full of families with kids. Our 8 year old social butterfly loved the playground and nonstop friend making. Social kids will love this place. Large central playground/ladder golf/ volleyball field area. So it is louder here but it's a happy loud. Nice place to have a campfire and do s'mores. Sites are right in huge trees... Very cool. There is dust everywhere though. A definite goal of the campground should be to add gravel or asphalt as the budget allows. If that were fixed, it would be 100% cleaner, and I think reviews would go significantly up. So it was very challenging to keep two kids and two dogs sort of clean. Very cool though: Dog Washing Station! Love that! Don't let your dog go anywhere in the sand by the playground though. Fleas. California is apparently rampant with them and they are "playing" in the park. Keep your flea and tick meds up to date. People were pretty friendly here. Nice vibe. - Zeus16

Really great place! Spacious and we had a great spot. Close to the Redwoods and convenient to town. We loved that they had redwoods on the property and walking path. We only spent one night but would love to come back! - Dog on the road

Best rv park, especially a KOA we have stayed in. Exceptionally clean showers and restrooms, plenty of laundry machines for use during the busy season. Located in the Redwoods with plenty of Redwood Trees and walking trails. - rl and dm powell

We used this as our base of travel. Site was nice pull thru and very level. Had 50 amp, sewer, water, cable, wifi. Staff was helpful and led us to the site. It was a nice KOA. Just outside of town which works for us since we are travelers and not campers. Stayed 3 nights. Right next to 101 but no noise. We would stay again. - belanga

FHU, 50amp pull-through site, cable TV, WIFI is free only on your first day $3/day thereafter. We barely made it through 2 big redwoods for the turn into our site (we have a terrible turning radius on our motorhome) but other than that everything was fine here. We did, however, have folks pulling in next to us at very late hours and setting up at nearly midnight which was annoying with all the closing of doors and drills used to crank out leveling jacks. Guess "quiet time" does not apply when it comes to income. Stayed 4 nights to visit the redwood forests nearby which are impressive. - Bob & Stephanie

Good utilities. Wifi $3/day for 2 devices. Laundry expensive ($2.50 wash and $2 dry). Fair spacing between most sites. Quiet and peaceful. Concrete patio, fire ring, picnic table.
A large facility, about 25% transient/75% long-term (mostly neat): areas widely separated, looked like our area was for transients. Park broken into several distinct areas, so it doesn't feel as "big" as it otherwise would.
Lots of shade, if that's what you want- I'd have preferred no shade with the rain (dirt/some gravel pads). Tree overgrown, could just barely get MH into site-roof became inaccessible because tree covered entire back half of roof access. Most of the gravel is gone, so sites are mostly dirt. Plenty of room in the pullthrus to park toad, etc. - SW Rick

Spent one night here. VERY nice setting in the Redwoods. Close to all the fantastic Redwood attractions. Very nice and friendly staff. The 50 amp service socket was broken at my site. I call the office and they said they would repair it immediately. I was just staying one night and told them not to worry. The 30 amp service worked fine! First thing in the morning a very nice gentleman showed up to repair it. Really a great place to stay. Will definitely stay here again !!! - gnlandrus

We stayed 4 nights and had a great time exploring! My kids loved finding the snails & banana slugs on all our hikes. Our site was a little difficult to get into with a trailer, but we managed with no real problems. The Redwood trees are amazing and are present all around us. We love to camp directly in the parks we're visiting so that we can take in a Ranger program or 2. Steep road in & out, but manageable. Would definitely stay again. Note that there is an $8 transaction fee if reserving online. - jmholton

We stayed at this park overnight. It is VERY cute, nestled in the woods, with these cool sites for tent campers, that you take these steps up to a quaint little cove, that is like a hobbit home. Very easy to park big rig, with pull thru site. Mosquito's, but come prepared with bug spray, you are covered. Great family park, for walking dog! We camped here in a 36 ft 5th wheel - tandjb2

It was a very nice state campground. I feel a bit high priced for no hook-ups, but the sites were beautiful, with redwoods all around. You couldn't ask for nicer ambiance. We got to the campground after the kiosk was closed but our name and campsite was listed on a whiteboard on the door of the kiosk. We would stay there again. - Rick Lechner

Slightly "tired" campground and by no means a resort but the friendliness of the staff overcomes that. We arrived on a Sunday for one night. Office was closed and there was no reservation packet addressed to us. There was a generic note on door that said, "if you arrive when office is closed, go to your site and check in with the camp host" (site#for him given). I then remembered that when I called to make reservation, she did assign us a site which I thankfully wrote down. We settled in, and camp host came to us. He couldn't take a credit card, but we had cash. Site was easy pull through and we did not disconnect. Gravel but level site, tight for slides with utility poles, but manageable. Park is clean, felt safe and well laid out. My husband became ill that night, and there was no way we could leave the next morning. Staff were more than accommodating to us to be able to stay an extra day. So, I got to use the laundry room which was large, clean and very reasonable. There are a lot of seasonal or permanent residents. Wi Fi offered by park was very weak, but I also could only use my verizon hotspot sporadically. Overall, this is a very nice short term park and we would stay here again! - KSAM14

Arrived 1:20pm and had to wait until 2:15pm for the person to get back from lunch! The park was really open with a large field in the middle. A lot of pull though sites but all looked very tight. Mine was. Had to keep moving back and forth so I could open my slides without hitting the utilities poles ( elect, water, etc ) sites were pretty level. Some had low over hanging branches. All in all, not the best and not the worst I've stayed at. Paid showers at .50 for 5 minutes. A nice market next door. - twowoofs

This is an older park within walking distance to Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. Blacktop roads and gravel sites. Hook ups were in the back of the site so had to get out extra cable water and sewer hoses. The surrounding area are beautiful Redwoods, but the campground is nice an open. Lots of cable channels and our Wi-Fi was good. - Traveler II

After reading previous reviews we were not going to stay at this park, but when we drove past we decided to stay. We were given a site (#10) with a view of the ocean. I will agree there are a lot of full time, low income residents and some of the RV's were quite old. I would not recommend staying on the inside of the park. We had no problem here and loved our view. The manager was very friendly and works very hard to keep this park maintained. - HAPPY CAMPER 1

Avoid this campground if you are traveling with small children: this is no place for them. It has a nice location near the beach, but that is its only good quality. The majority of residents we saw were full-time or month-to-month, living in run down trailers on dirty, garbage infested sites. - rvanwell

This is the first RV Park you encounter when driving North on HWY 101 and upon entering Crescent City. We stopped here only because it was getting late and we were concerned about not finding an open campground. Manger is friendly, but this is a very old, poorly maintained park. The sites are very close and cluttered. Although there were other overnighters staying there, most rigs seem to be full timers or long term. Many rigs are very old. The best thing going for this park is its location (right in the harbor). I would pass on staying here again. - Joe-n-Doe

It is dry camping, but the setting is worth it. Easy to get to but roads are narrow inside camp grounds. Our 33 footer fit but barely. - Terrie B
Aug 2015 - $18.00
This campground is nestled among the northern redwoods, therefore rather dark, as the sun light doesn't penetrate the tree tops until late morning, if at all.
The interior roads are very narrow, and weave between the giant trees.
Sites are tucked in between the big trees where ever they fit, ours was fairly level, but rather tight due to the trees, we were able to fully extend the slides, undergrowth makes for nice site separation.
There are no hookups, but there is a dump station and water fill. Bathrooms were clean and functional.
Nice hiking trails in the area, with a river at the edge of the park. Our price was with the Senior Pass. If in the area again, we will stay here. - bukhrn

We stayed the night in a driving rainstorm that didn't let up the entire time we were there. This place is all about the trees which are impressive but not any more impressive that Redwoods elsewhere. The spots are very rustic gravel/mud and not very level, but you're not staying here for the camping spots. Each spot has a trash and recycle bin I assume to keep the place pristine. Most trails are closed to both dogs and bikes. This early in the season the park was barely open in terms of facilities. One bath/shower closed and the other far away from out spot. This place is also very dark due to the large trees. There is a nice river access area we had ourselves to due to the weather. - Fishmon
