5 Parks near Eureka, California

You must be an Elks member to stay here. We stopped here to do some sightseeing around the Redwoods. During our three day stay, there was a thick fog which is pretty typical of this coastal area. This is a very basic campsite with access to the Lodge lounge. We appreciated the full hookups. Each faucet serviced two sites but didn't cause any issue with water pressure. Each site was spacious with easy in and easy out access. The Avenue of the Giants was an easy trip from here as was the town of Eureka with access to all of the usual shops, including Costco. We would stay here again. - The Chouters

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. - silverado

WiFi was showing but could not connect so would probably not stay again because of that fact. All else was satisfactory, good or very good. - LottaTidbits

No trees or divisions between sites that are gravel and mostly level. The amenities are good for families, and they are pet friendly. East of the 101, it was tough to find, because the signage is tiny, and the turn tells you "KOA road" but puts you in an area of industrial shops--the entrance is behind these places. My GPS kept telling me I had "arrived" but there was only a tiny KOA sign. Found it though. If you're tired from a long day, you might make note of this.
The campground is for sale (July 2015), and I don't think it is a joyful thing for the employees. They were pleasantly professional, yet I felt the "leaving" mentality in dealing with the people.
Great for an overnight or a base camp for visiting the area--in summer call ahead for a reservation. - Elin

Poorly maintained park is perhaps a reflection of owners desire to sell. Electrical service is inadequate: low voltage at both 30 & 50 amps. WiFi is slow to non-existent. Sites are not level. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Hopefully the next owners will invest in upgrades needed in this park. - Roger H.

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. - Judy Birchland

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. - Littlebigrv

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. - Keeping up with the Joneses

The campground is not picturesque. Basically a gravel area off one of the main driveways into the fairgrounds, so it is noisy. We were there on a race weekend, so it was exceptionally noisy. There are a few long term RV's (trailers) in the park that are in fair condition. There is supposedly an age limit on the RV's staying here; it obviously is not enforced. The CG manager lives in the CG with several kids who run amuck. The campsite has 20/30/50 electric, gravel, no picnic table or fire ring. Fairly level. Spaces are tight, but only when fully occupied. No privacy, no shade. The water is good quality at about 60 psi. No cable and only basic OTA. Internet is free, but very slow, about 300 kbps. No laundry. The showers are old and in need of remodel, but clean. The staff in the office are OK, but do not patrol the CG or enforce rules. The CG is located in Eureka, so everything is close. There is a Fire Station across the street with occasional sirens. This is not a destination CG. Short stays are tolerable, but longer would be stressful. Will only stay here again if we need to be in the area. - Wiyndog

If in the Eureka area, we would stay here again at the Passport America rate. The sites are gravel with a bit of grass, all easy back-ins. Traffic noise is minimal. Good location for Eureka city activities. Pleasant and efficient campground host. Wifi was excellent, Verizon phones worked fine, with antenna TV we got PBS, major networks except NBC, plus a few others. Don't think our sat TV would have worked because of close trees (big) to the south. - rncordy

A good stopover spot. The Wi-Fi was reasonable/acceptable.
I would recommend for a few days to explore the Eureka area. - gypsy parrotheads

Giving this park 1 star due to manager lies. We needed a spot for the night while on our way down south. We called to see if they have space and the guy said he has "ONE SPOT LEFT" and if we want it, he needs a credit card over the phone. When we got there, we realized that we got scammed!! there were many empty spots. The guy lies to you just to get you in! What a great start.The rate as published is $38. Good Sam discount is 10% but we got charged $41.33. When we questioned him he said that there is 12% tax. I am not a mathematician but come on really?? you're going to cheat people like that?The place is creepy, noisy, and tight if you drive anything over 35ft. Do yourself a favor and stop somewhere else.... - Presidio40

At first we were just impressed by the neat and clean park. We were staying there and supposed to check out on the 4th of July. We found out that our next destination was going to be very difficult to get into with our 45' motorhome. The park manager set us up alongside of the office with cones all around for a day, until he found another site he could put us in. He was exceptional. The hospitality has been great. We would definitely come back. - Pickyparker

There was a minimum of two nights or we would have stayed only one. The park is more like a nice parking lot with long drive-through spaces that can accommodate long rigs. However, the sewer hookup is very inconvenient. You either have to have a very long hose or wait until you're ready to leave to dump and pull forward.
The spaces are very narrow and have grass in between. The sprinklers come on so the grass is always wet making it hard not to track grass clippings in your RV. Our site was covered in bird droppings, that wasn't pleasant either.
The park is easily accessed from Hwy 101. Our spot was back from the road. It was cold so our windows weren't open and we weren't bothered by the road noise. The park manager, was very nice and helpful. He can give you good recommendations for places to eat/visit.
If you walk to the town of Eureka, which we did, you will pass a lot of homeless camping in the area. It is a very depressed town. While we were not bothered, I would not have felt comfortable walking to town by myself or at night. - Ree Klein
