15 Parks near Ferndale, California
Sep 2016 - $28.00
RV Price appears to have gone up to $28. Tenting is $13.
Although ground is uneven, you can find semi level sites. Power was good and DTV Sat access was good in site 8 away from the row of tall trees. - GerMarV

We were here over Thanksgiving and there were only 4 or 5 other units camped here. When it rains it gets a lot of puddles and some surface mud but the coach did not sink in the mud because it's got a gravel base. It's kind of lumpy but the coach was able to level up just fine. This time of year the bathrooms were clean with good hot water in the shower and moderate pressure. Verizion MiFi worked fine but there's no wifi or cable. If you use satellite you should be able to find a space with a lot of open sky. The staff were friendly and helpful. The road and sites are grass covered gravel and when it gets wet it gets a little muddy but not impassable. There are no picnic tables or fire rings.The $25/day seems like a pretty good deal for the area and if we get back here we'll probably stay here again. - pumper9x9

Basically an open field with water and electric services. It was the day after the county fair ended and they were busy with people leaving and picking up. We were grateful that they let us stay when they were so busy. Good value. - oldcarfun

I can't realize why people rate the showers and restrooms of this campground with excellent or very clean.
They have only two restrooms and two urinal on the men side which is not enough for this size of campground!
The sides are very close to each other so you can't use the awning.
Maybe 3/4 of the sides are long time or full time campers with a lot of stuff around the trailers, so its looks a little bit like a trailer park.
The wifi signal is strong but because of to much users the download speed is very low.
The two pet areas are unfenced and there size is around 6'x20' and 15'x15'.
The only good thing of this campground is that you can walk to the Eel River Brewery Company. - Columbus

We really liked this park. Right off Hwy 101 so easy access. It also means you hear traffic noise but nothing that really bothered us. Excellent baths/showers. Level sites and utilities worked well. About 10 feet between sites but angled accordingly so we did not feel squeezed. Good cell signal and strong wifi. Park was very tidy and we felt very secure here. Would recommend as an overnight or as a destination to explore the area. Would come back. - TravelinTail

This was a nice place to stay. Very pretty park with nice spacing between rigs. Getting into a site can be a little challenging for the longer rigs, given some trees and poles in spots (although not too much problem for our 40' MH). Most of the rigs on the outer perimeter look to be permanent residents, but they are not junky. We were in a space close to the entrance/road, so there was road noise, but not too bad and better at night. One problem we did have was getting level. The sites are paved but not necessarily level! And while they have wifi, it kept dropping out on me. I opted not to use their laundry room, as it smelled sort of mildewy, and their prices were a bit high ($2.25/wash, $0.25 for ??minutes/dry). But we would certainly go back there if in the area. - CarrieBearie

This is a very well kept up park. Very clean and a nice staff. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. We always enjoy our visit. - Bob&Heidi
Aug 2011 - $24.00
This could be a very nice park on the river but needs lots of cleaning up. Mostly permanent people. Staff friendly. Stayed here 20 years ago but would not stay again. - TeamElk-Rib
Mar 2009 - $22.00
Friendly owner. Many long term residents with very unsightly rigs. Located very close to the Eel River with beautiful views of the river and bluffs on the opposite side. Washrooms were adequate. Laundromat expensive with wash and dry each costing $2. This site has a lot of potential because of the location but it needs a lot of clean up. As an overnight stay this was OK. - stodarca

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
Nov 2012 - $25.00
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
Sep 2010 - $25.00
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
Apr 2016 - $32.00
We stayed for a week, so got the weekly rate. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We had good power (30 amp) and water but no sewer. Our site was generous. The whole travelers' RV parking area was fresh cut grass, which we really enjoyed compared to gravel or sand. Lots of redwoods and blackberry bushes surrounded that area, so it was lovely to look out at. This was non peak season so few other RVs joined us. There are a number of seasonal sites, but they weren't all that visible from our site. - TJElser

Based on pouring rain and just needing a place for the night at a decent rate we ended up here. If the weather was good it would have been OK, not great, but OK, but site was very wet. Too tired and wet to move on. Site on was grass and maybe gravel underneath. Pull through sites. Place has not had much invested in making it better and some older full-time places in the front. Not the worse I have stayed, but weather really made it not enjoyable. - RPWAINC

Add to previous reviews that they now have good WIFI in the park. Tables at each site. Great management. Be sure to look at the cabin (?) in a 1500 year old tree stump. The rate is PA. We would stay here again if passing through. - A hitch and hop

Elks Only. Full hook ups with cable. Usually crowded , great spot to explore North Coast and Redwoods. Lodge very busy. Always enjoy our stay here. Will be back. - silverado
Sep 2014 - $20.00
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
Jul 2013 - $20.00
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
Jul 2016 - $20.00
This facility is an open lot laid out in numbered sites. A fire ring is available at perimeter sites, picnic tables along the western side. These are not available in the central sides. No camping along the eastern waterfront.
This facility sees a lot of turnover and is busy during the day when the salmon are running. There are many 4 wheeler campers and day users. It is quiet at night though. We would stay here again. - SCClockDr

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. - Gogirl

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. - Lynn-Donny
May 2015 - $30.00
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

This is our second stay at this little park. Very basic, no frills. Staff was very friendly and helpful. WIFI and cable worked great. Spaces were very level with nice grass between.
Park is right next to Hwy 101 and some truck noise can be heard, but tolerable. - vwbluestar
Aug 2016 - $44.00
Stayed one night. Gas station convenience store next door.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi was excellent.
Clean, level site with excellent utilities. - cdouglas
Jul 2016 - $37.00
Sites are level and big enough. Back-ins. Lots of freeway noise from 101, but it does die down later at night. Cable great, Internet not so much. Bath and shower were nicely tiled. No pool, etc. We stayed one night and would stay here again. Nice staff. - Sir_Charles395
Sep 2016 - $36.00
I cannot add much to the previous good reviews and details except coming from the north, get off at exit 674 and drive south on the Redwoods drive until you come to Immortal Tree gift shop which is the campground entrance. The woods are dark and we almost missed it. Signage from south 101 is better. The people in the gift shop are most friendly and helpful. Only one toilet per gender and two showers, could use more toilets in my opinion. - saturn7
Sep 2016 - $36.00
Stayed in a 43' motorhome to visit the Redwoods. Park is easy to find from Hwy 101. Check in is in the gift shop and was fast and efficient. Staff was very friendly and helpful about area attractions. No assigned sites. You have to find your own. Park has an easy layout so it is easy to find a site. No dog park but ample space to walk your dog on grass. You are among the Redwoods. No cable. we used our satellite. Location is in the middle of the Ave of the Giants making it easy to visit the Redwoods. Other than the forest there is nothing else going on here. Make sure you visit the NPS visitors center for a good idea of the trails. If visiting the Redwoods we would stay here again. - RTM

This is a small, well maintained campground, not a resort. It is at a beautiful location on the Avenue of the Giants, and is operated by the owners of the Immortal Tree Gift Shop. All sites are pull through, level, in the sun with grass, and are adequately wide. Each site is a different length, and you can choose from any of the vacant spots. Our AT&T cell phone signal was adequate at the campground. We used their TV cable to access local stations along with our DISH satellite for our cable stations. Electric, water and sewer connections were reasonably positioned. Water pressure was adequate but not excessive. We did not have any electrical issues. Most campers were truly campers and not long term residents. We enjoyed having evening fires and picked a few quarts of blackberries. There is no nighttime security, but we didn't feel we needed it. Bathrooms, showers and laundry room were basic, secure and cleaned well daily. Owners are pleasant and take pride in their ownership. We stayed four days and would be happy to return. - OH2SD
