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. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is just off Hwy 101 and is easy to locate. However there is truck noise from the nearby highway. The landscaping is mature and rhododendrons were blooming everywhere. There is a tight turn at one end of the park but big rigs somehow negotiated the turn. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The nearby Loleta Cheese Factory sells many hard-to-find varieties like my favorite, caraway cheese. Victorian Ferndale (my childhood home) is just across the Eel River and just a few miles further is Centerville Beach.

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. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Motorhome.

A huge plus for us dog owners - just about one mile away (100 Dinsmore Dr) is a great dog park!!! It is right next to a garden supply/feed store. Also, great walking path on the other side of Kenmar/Riverwalk (access on the far side of the River Lodge, which is sort of across from the Shell station). We also ate at the Eel River Brewery and both enjoyed our meals.

We stayed here for two nights while working our way up the coast. Even though it is right next to 101, the traffic noise was less than we expected. This park looks more like a home address for full-timers than travelers. The grass was shaggy, and the trees really need to be trimmed up - we had to move to an adjacent site because tree limbs were hitting our slides (and even then it was really close). Also, if hooking up to their cable TV, be sure to have a really long piece of coax, as by the time you are pulled up to the very front of your spot (necessary to squeeze your car in behind you), your utilities are way back behind you (also have a sewer line extension). Fortunately, the staff loaned me a adapter so I could string two pieces of coax together and reach the cable outlet. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for an overnight and were quite pleased, even though it is a little spendy. The pull throughs are all asphalt with a concrete patio for the picnic table. There is lots of grass and large trees. It is shoehorned between the road into town and 101, so there was road noise, but it went down after dark and with the windows closed we didn't notice it at all. The bathrooms were clean, the staff was friendly and the wifi worked great. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The best thing is the park is walking distance to the Eel River Brewery which has excellent beer and sweet potato fries!

A nice park, easy access off the freeway, walking distance to river, but not on it. Wifi and cable worked fine. There was a pool (unheated) and a spa (heated) which we didn't use, but looked clean. Our four-year-old was entertained by the basic playground area. The store had lots of stuff in it. The washrooms were basic, but seemed due for a paint job, but clean enough. Didn't use the showers.The park grounds were clean and cared for, seemed like lots of long-termers, but lots of space for short-termers. The man in the office was very helpful. We barely fit in our pull-through site -- 35' plus toad. We'd come back again and stay longer to explore the area a bit. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Motorhome.

Made reservations online with no problem. Staff were helpful and professional. Asphalt paved roads and sites. The sites are only as wide as your rig, but long enough to park tow vehicle. Our site was level side to side. The park has flat terrain. Space for awning and slides; then about 10 feet to neighbor. Enough room to maneuver big rig. Park is pretty, landscaped with redwoods and rhododendrons, appropriately. Clean facilities as others have noted. Slept fine, the 101 in Fortuna is not equal to the 405 in LA. WiFi was good. For us, the best thing was the cable. It had a full slate of local and the usual cable channels, and Comcast Sports Network Bay Area and CSN California. You can watch NORCAL sports teams, sports fans. We will be back. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff friendly and helpful. Sites paved with grass and trees. Park close to shopping, gas, restaurants. You could hear 101 traffic, but traffic died down after dark. Lovely walking path across the road ( river walk) good for joggers, walker, strolling with dogs, etc. A number of permanent folks but their sites were kept neat and clean. Very well stocked store. We would stay here again. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Motorhome.

For what the park can control, it has done a very nice job. Modifications to its original design have been made to accommodate today's larger rigs. Enough trees are between the asphalt pads to be aesthetically pleasing but not so many as to block satellite TV reception and the extension of multiple slides. (We did have to change sites to make this happen though.) The biggest issue most will have is the road noise from the adjacent freeway. As with any facility offering easy freeway access, road noise has the potential to be bothersome. For those seeking a nicely landscaped park with small city conveniences nearby and a home-base from which to visit the southern area of Eureka or 'The Avenue of the Giants' this park would be our recommendation. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Motorhome.

Check in staff were very courteous.

Site was not very wide but nice. Level paved with grass and picnic table. Trees, bushes on each site. We were at the end of a row so no neighbors on that side, and no one in site next to us for both days.

Close to Hwy 101 but didn't hear a thing overnight.

Washrooms were clean but only 1 stall in both bathroom buildings. Five showers were co-ed - could have used a mirror on the back of the door as sinks were in bathroom across the hall. A bit of a walk from the end of the park but no big deal.

Didn't use pool so can't comment on that.

We stayed for 2 nights as it turned out at Apple Festival time.

We would stay there again. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed only one night so didn't get to use all the facilities. Front office was very helpful and found us a site that was easy in easy out. Location was easy to access from 101 with a gas station just down the street. Great stop. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lovely park with tables at each site; paved coach site; lots of Redwood trees; clean laundry room with working machines; friendly staff; nice store with basic food stuff, RV supplies, and souvenirs. Appears that keeping the Redwood debris in check is a problem since our site was covered with needles and we had to sweep out our site before putting out our chairs. We were give a very short pull-thru since our coach is 24' and we weren't towing. Would have been nice to have a bit larger spot so we could put our dog pen on pavement rather than the grass. Spacious pet area but it isn't fenced so we were unable to let our dogs off leash. That was a disappointment. Cable was great. Even had digital channels which came in great on our hi-def TV. It's a bit on the pricey side, especially since the $50 reflects our Good Sam Discount. We would stay here again but probably not for longer than 1 night because of the cost. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall, this is an excellent RV Park! We read the previous reviews and were a bit concerned that we'd be disappointed... we were very pleasantly surprised and would definitely stay here again.

The sites were well maintained. We had a site with full hookups (30amps) and everything functioned perfectly. The restrooms and showers were spotless. The wifi worked great as did the cable TV (with lots and lots of channels).

We heard a little bit of noise from the nearby 101 but it didn't bother us at all.

The management was polite and helpful. We had our Harley Davidson with us in our toy hauler and were looking for roads off the beaten path to visit. The manager gave us tips on local roads which ended up being super helpful.

Overall, we greatly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return! We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

There are several restaurants in Fortuna that are five minutes away or less. Ferndale is approximately 10 minutes away and also has options. We traveled to Eureka as well which was approximately 25 minutes north of Fortuna.

Beautiful park. Out of the way though. Drive to everywhere. No stores nearby. A couple eateries in hotels nearby

Very clean. Very pricey for every little thing.

There is wifi and cable at least! Sections are private and clean. A new staff person every time we are there. Something must be bad with management since turnover is so often. The gal who was there was kind and helpful. The manager is constantly out trying to find work to do when really there isn't any. He seems uptight. Kind but uptight. Beautiful trees and heated pool. Showers a out of the way if you are parked on the south side. Very comfortable but very costly. Adds up fast! The tent area looks lovely. I love the store. Lots of goodies and souvenirs of Redwoods!

Trees and grass and shrubs - very pleasant park. Well maintained, walking distance to a good brew pub (Eel River Brewing) and a pizza restaurant. Quiet and removed from town and traffic (several motels nearby). We've stayed here twice, one night each, but it would be a pleasant place to stay while day tripping to the Lost Coast, Fernwood, Eureka or Arcata. With tent camping and cabins, it could be a good meeting place for groups/families. We camped at Riverwalk RV Park in a Motorhome.
