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. We camped at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.
Loved the historic Samoa Cookhouse (definitely not polynesian!), ask the locals for info, or Google it.

A good stopover spot. The Wi-Fi was reasonable/acceptable.
I would recommend for a few days to explore the Eureka area. We camped at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds 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.

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 at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.Undo

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 at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.Undo

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 at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.Undo

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.

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 at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.Undo

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 at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.Undo

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.

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 at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

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.

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.

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 at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

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.
