Keeping in mind that this is a County fair grounds, this location was practically perfect. The location was very quiet and the view of the farms across the way were amazing. The location is convenient to the highway, but out of the way of traffic. We drive in a 40 foot motorhome and getting in and out of the location was very easy. The water pressure was good and the 30 amp power was very clean. The camp ground host was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return here again. We camped at Humboldt County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to check out the towns of Ferndale and Fortuna. Also, in Ferndale, check out the Black smith shop and the museum. Also, be sure to check out Centerville Beach County park which is only 5 miles west of the campground.

Ferndale is the attraction here. The RV park is really just a dirt field with water and electric. Staff are nice and helpful. They have a few paved spots inside the fairgrounds and a couple with 50 amp. Call ahead to make sure the fair is not in session. But Ferndale is worth it. A wonderful little town with lots of Victorian houses and buildings. A great walking town. Lots to see. Hotel Ivanhoe has a wonderful restaurant. Definitely try the sandwiches at The Meat Company. Travel caution – the road between Shelter Cove and north to Ferndale (the Lost Coast) is terrible. The road itself is in horrible condition with dirt in a few spots. And since the pavement is in such terrible condition, the dirt is better. Many, many tight turns with many very tight hairpin switchbacks steep both up and down. We had to disconnect twice on hairpins (38’ Class A with dingy). Speed is usually under 25 MPH and one still bounces all over the place. The drive is just not worth it. The view is nothing to speak of. Only a short view of the coast. Much better views can be had at Shelter Cove or Ferndale. We camped at Humboldt County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

This is a good spot while looking the area over. Campground has been around for many years and does lack maintenance. Grounds are clean along with the showers. All sites are not level but not far off. We have stayed here at least once a year for the past ten years. It is a good place to stay. No sewer on sites but if does have a dump station. We camped at Humboldt County Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.
