This is our 3rd time staying here, and our last. "Redneck Acres,"as locals call it, has never been a five star resort but it's always been acceptable for the price and location. As former locals we knew what to expect (wonky sites, no privacy) until we pulled in for the first time in a few years. Things have changed for the worse. Fairgrounds management has raised the nightly rate and opened the park to long-term renters. Apparently this is par for the course these days in the region, perhaps to address the lack of affordable housing in Humboldt County. That's fine, but management needs to enforce their rules. The parking spots (never meant to be lived in full-time) have tenants living in mildew-covered, beat-up RVs (and one old school bus) with tarps on the roofs, exterior junk around the rigs, and two cars parked out front of almost every space. The school bus arrives during the week and only a handful of sites are open for tourists. Then in a crazy twist, the park manager told me I couldn't hang two towels out to dry in the (rare) sunshine because "fairgrounds management would have a fit." Whaaa? In 10 years of full-timing this was the first time we almost pulled out and left before we even plugged in. The only reason we didn't was the only two RV parks in the area were booked. Why? Most likely because they're flooded with long-term renters too. Getting to Humboldt is no easy journey (the main highway was shut 2x during our stay because of landslides). If you go keep in mind that Redneck Acres is the best you'll get in an area with few safe and scenic places to stay. We camped at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We attempt to stay in discount parks. This park is fairly rough, uncut, uneven, patchy grass. Sites need leveling. Quiet. I would stay here again. We camped at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

This place is just a driveway with gravel parking spaces. Back in only. Not really big rig friendly. Noisy, right behind the race track at the fairgrounds. We pulled in and knew we wouldn't be staying. The site is so uneven that our front wheels were off the ground and it still wasn't level. Wifi is provided but we didn't use it because it was slow. It's now 10 pm at night and although the race cars have stopped, people are sitting outside laughing and making quite a bit of noise. Most of the RV's here are a little older and many look like they're being used as permenant residences. No amenities that you could see. There are no clearly assigned parking spaces so other people across from us were parked in our space. Only 30 amp available so thank goodness it was cool and we didn't need air conditioning. We camped at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Their information states no campers older then 2005, but I'm sure several of the ones there were substantially older than that. Most of the people live there full time. Sites are very close together and there is only one electrical box for two sites with only one 30 and one 50 amp plug in so check before setting up to make sure what you need isn't being used already. The camp host was never around. I wouldn't stay there again. We camped at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We went to the zoo half price day, small but enjoyable wouldn't pay full price though. Old town wasn't very interesting except the big old mansions.

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. We camped at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Always some events in the area, or the ocean, or the redwoods, or the breweries.

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. We camped at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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. We camped at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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. We camped at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.
