30 Parks near Crescent City, California
Oct 2016 - $35.00
BaysideRV met our needs. We were looking for a rustic campground but the it rained a lot so we opted for this RV Park with hookups and solid footings for the leveling jacks. The spaces aren't very long (except for the pull throughs but are wide enough to fit a toad or a tow vehicle along side. Everybody around me had 30 amps as 50 amps is not avail. There is no ambience to this park as it is a parking lot with paint striping and the back side is a bunch of old boats stored on blocks. The wifi was good as was the cable and the ATT cell service. A foghorn sounds every 10 seconds out on the jetty along with the sea lions honking but both were OK and not a distraction. This park is very near lots of restaurants. - exportman

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

We came here for the price and the fact we would only be here for a brief stay. We looked at several other parks in the area and have stayed at one that is more expensive. This park is totally run down, many permanent residents in run down, old motorhomes. We felt a little unsafe leaving our rig to go for a drive/walk. There is a "manager" but the office is closed all the time and he is in his own rig on the other side of the park. The fellow next to us had two tough looking dogs and luckily he was not outside with them for very long. I would not go back. - saturn7

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

Attendants are friendly and knowledgeable of the area . Sites are large and easy to park . I chose the back in over looking the harbor the light house is off in the distance but you can hear and see it. The park is close to the redwoods and Crescent City. I took site 16 back in and there is still room to unload my Harley. This is a city owned park and there are no old beat up old RV residents camping here. - jerry g

Great place to stay while traveling thru or visiting the area. Large RV park with level sites. Most sites are pull thru except those facing the harbor which are either pull in or back in. Level gravel sites, utilities well placed. Easy check in. Convenient to everything in Crescent City. Good view of the Battery Point lighthouse and ocean at opening of harbor. - Allure470

Not worth$36. Left a day early without a refund. Some sites face the bay. Dirt roads and site, with very little gravel. Dirt and dead weeds between sites. Not acceptable park for us. It would take so little to make this part better. Basically a dirt parking lot. - User3274

The personnel here are lovely people. The park itself is amazing with many huge, photo-worthy Redwood stumps with second growth throughout the park, as well as 100-year-old Redwood trees. Sites are gravel and well maintained, as is the entire park. About half the sites are nestled entirely under the trees; some out in the open; others with some shade. But be aware: I parked under trees, and heavy rain dropped dead pine needles and sap that stained my motorhome and are very difficult to clean. The showers were old but very clean with plenty of hot water if you shower at unusual times. Laundry is not good with 2 very old machines; TV reception is marginal; Wi-Fi awful! A nice, large playground gym set for kids is located in the middle of the park. This is a great location in which to rest and/or visit famous Redwood groves along old scenic highway along 101, and along 199 north, or take a trip to the beach. I would definitely stay there again, especially after labor day. - bekind

Don't trust the shiny pictures on there website, 90% of the sides are in the dirt with no grass around you!
The campground is side by side to a mobile home park with no fence.
We booked a Full Hookup Premium Pull-Thru Side with 50 amp.
At the office they told us to keep the storage compartment locked because they have a lot of thefts in the last time on the campground.
The first side which they offered us was too small to use the slide outs (at the reservation we indicate the wide of our motorhome with 14').
Then they gave us an other dirty side neat the end area which offered only 30 amp. I drove back to the office and told the lady at the counter that we didn't like this place, she marked the available sides on a map and told us we can choose on but they were all only 30 amp.
We picked one, hook up our coach, tried to connect our macbook to the wifi which doesn't exist at this side.
I connected the cable TV, make a scan and received 11 channels in a really bad quality.
Because we didn't feel comfortable and safe it was the first time that we leave a campground. - Columbus

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

Good clean campground with good laundry facility. Close to Redwood areas with both more commercial and more do it yourself trails. Campground provided several day trip options with itineraries and maps. Office closed noon to 3 pm. - CCMcLeod

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

Stayed in a 43' motorhome to visit the Redwoods and Crescent City. Easy to find from Hwy 101. Paved road thru park then gravel into site. Site was level and had good utilities. Stayed in pull thru site among the Redwood trees. Close to Hwy 199 and the Jedediah Redwoods. Crescent City offers excellent views of the ocean, Lighthouse and seals along the rocks. If in the area would stay here again. - RTM

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

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

Calling this campground a resort is a bit of a stretch...except for maybe the cost. We stayed here 5 years ago and it hasn't really changed much. It is now under new management so perhaps it will become a resort. Don't get me wrong, it is an okay campground but not a resort. Sites are okay but if you don't want a back-in site you will pay a premium. Restrooms are quite nice, clean and appear renovated. The laundry is very nice, clean and reasonably priced. Wi-fi is nonexistent in two areas. I had to go to the main office area to get wi-fi. One person told me they are working on the wi-fi and another told me they just had to reboot the router. Once rebooted I had access for about one hour. We went into town (Crescent City) and checked out three other campgrounds right in town. I would not stay at any of those so this one is probably your best bet, but overpriced. Also, they are cutting down a lot of trees and shrubs but the stumps have been left. I snagged my bumper on a stump and tore out the rear fender of my 5th wheel pulling it off the stump. I know it is my fault for not watching more closely but I feel the stumps should have been cut down to the ground. - bobinidaho

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

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

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
