This is a "park" not a "resort" by any means and for that I gave it a high rating. The owners were really nice when we checked in and let us choose whichever open site we wanted. They have long pull-thrus and pull-ins along the river. FHU, spacious sites with green grass. It's right on the 101, very easy access. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

A new casino just south of the RV park has an understaffed, overpriced restaurant. The Trees of Mystery are a few miles north. Jet boat tours are right next door. River would be good for salmon fishing.

This is a no frills, scenic campground that doesn't pretend to be anything else. It is reasonably priced @ $30 per night with GS discount, which is unusual for California. It is also the only park in the area with 50 amp full hookups. The sites are pull through or pull in and all face the scenic Klamath River. Site pads are asphalt with the pull through being longer than the pull in and all sites are good sized. Rigs over 45' will have trouble fitting in the pull in. There is NO WIFI or CABLE or OTA TV but satellite will be no problem. The utilities are placed in the rear half of the site and function well. After about June 1st the park fills with regulars so spaces may not be available till September. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Staying at this place was a treat! If you are here in early season, as we were (mid-May), you will have your pick of the sites it's so empty! I understand that changes drastically in June, when the fishing regulars come to stay all season and take up the whole park. There are pull-thrus and pull-ins. Very rare for a park to be set up for MHs in this fashion, where you can actually be oriented to see the great view (the Klamath River, in this case) out your front windshield!!!! And to get it all - incl. full hook-ups with 50amp - for such a cheap rate (not sure what actual rate was, total for 4 nights incl. tax was $70), absolutely amazing!!! Rigs park on asphalt, toads on the grass, next to rig. Road noise not bad at all, even though right next to 101 (not much traffic in that area, at least in May!). Nothing fancy about this cg. In fact, kind of bare bones, and probably hard to navigate larger rigs when cg is more full, but we'd stay there again in off-season in a heartbeat!! We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A simple left turn off US 101 got us right into Golden Bear RV Resort. Despite being so close to the highway, the traffic at night is sparse and never bothered us. The staff was really friendly and helpful. There is a clubhouse (we didn't use) and they set up a fire at dusk in a stove near the river at night, with chairs for anyone who wanted to join. It was completely open, so satellite TV was good, as well as Verizon cell phone reception which was okay. Here we had strong 50 amp power, water, and sewer, plus a great view of the Klamath River right out our front window. We saw many birds and some harbor seals hang out on the river. Lots of empty spaces now because it's low season (they're closed in the winter, open April 1st). After July 4th it's crazy full. August is already booked. People come to fish salmon then. We parked on asphalt but our site was grass. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Redwoods nearby at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, and Redwoods National Park. Beautiful, with many trails and lots of old growth redwoods.

Wonderful river view. Great access to Redwood Parks. Friendly staff. Narrow roads with tight turns to access site pads. Paved sites have significant grass encroachment, making them seem about 2 feet narrower than they are. Road noise was insignificant in site #19 (on river). No room for tow vehicle on pad with 40' motorhome, but hosts let us park it at next site, since campground was nearly empty. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This was a gem of a campground that we nearly missed. It's small and personal, right between Hwy 101 and the Klamath River. We chose a pull-in site facing the river and were rewarded with views of seals playing and fishing, as well as plenty of birds: Grebes, Herons, Egrets, and of course, sea gulls. All sites are full-hookup, 50 and 30 AMP. There's no television reception and no cable available, but my Verizon phone pulled in three bars of 4G. Laundry was convenient, as it was only a few steps from our door. This park is not open year-round, and they were in the process of shutting down for the season while we were there - had just pulled in the dock and removed the picnic tables. The owners are nice and helpful. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Make sure you shop before you arrive as the only thing nearby is a convenience store. This is a great location for sightseeing in the Redwood National and State Forests.

Great campground near the Redwoods National and State Park. Our site was right on the Klamath River and we were able to watch sea otters swimming right next to our campsite. The office is not always staffed, but self-registry is easy. The owner is very friendly and gave us good ideas about what to see while in the area. Verizon MiFi, AT&T phone and Dish TV worked very well. The setting was very peaceful. It is on the highway, so there is some noise during the day, but it quiets down at night, so sleeping wasn't an issue for us. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Basic park right next to the river. An open grass field with paved spaces and paved roads. Nice views of the river with back-in spaces available for river views. Spaces could be a little longer to hold big rigs and tow vehicle. Paved pad could be a little wider as it just held our rig allowing our jacks and tires to be on pavement. No WiFi. The downside of the park is the road noise from US-101 as it is only 100 feet from the first row of spaces. During our stay it was not distracting. All the parks in town seem about the same and are also close to 101. This park took the PA rate for our 3 night stay so a very good value for a full hook-up pull thru site. Nice stop over to see the redwood parks. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here to visit the Redwoods. The view of the river was the best part of the park. Lovely. Watched otters play. Wifi signal is weak, they know it but can't fix it. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate quoted is PA. Good 50 amp power. Cable TV no longer operational. No over the air TV. Good 3G Verizon data. Good Verizon phone. Somewhat noisy due to location right next to Highway 101. Level paved sites. River is currently blocked from the ocean due to a sand bar developing. Good river access and boat docks. Very few services in Klamath. New Indian casino being built. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate shown is Passport America, and was given to us for all 6 nights that we were here. This is a nice park with paved sites. Ours was right on the bank of the river, and we had great views out of the front of our RV. The staff is friendly, but the office hours were limited (9-11, 2-5), so if you try to call and don't get an answer, don't give up. There's not a lot in Klamath, but within a short drive you can see the beautiful Redwoods. We definitely recommend this park! We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Great little park right on the river. The front of our coach was within feet of the banks with fantastic views. The staff is friendly and so are the locals that live there. They actually took our Passport America for all 3 nights. There are lots of parks to choose from in Klamath but we really enjoyed this one. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a fabulous place to stay - right on the Klamath River and centrally located to visit all the Redwood State & National Parks. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Sites are level and paved - grass everywhere else, so it's a very clean environment. We have AT&T, so no cell or internet service and the park doesn't have WiFi. We were able to back our 5th wheel right up to the river's edge - watch the tides, the birds and the sunsets. However, those sites were set up for motorhomes, so the utilities were on the wrong side. Since it was a slow time of the year, we were able to hook up sewer in the next space over, which was empty. Our rate is Passport America. We started out with 3 days and ended up staying 9 - and we'll be back. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is no frills but it's so cool to be able to pull straight in and face the Klamath River while watching the seals, boats and salmon float or swim by. The bathrooms,while old, were in excellent shape and clean, the hosts were wonderful and informative and the whale watching from the north hill of the mouth of the Klamath was awesome!

Excellent park right on the river. It is fresh and clean. Looked out the front window at the river and natural area across from it. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The seasonal guests are quite nice also. Good fishing and close to the Redwoods. There is a little noise from 101, but not much. Each site has full hookups and a grassy area with a picnic table. Would stay here again. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Motorhome.
