This campground is ok. We had a premium site which was not really worth the money, but it was away from all the hubbub of the park. This park is on the river but the walk to the river is very steep and they refer to it as the huff and puff walk. You can't see the river from the campground. The employees were very nice. It was also very dry and dusty. We won't go back, but if you want to use it as a base camp get a cheaper site and you'll be fine. - onemohawk

We loved staying at Redwood river resort. It is a smaller campground, but still had some nice events. Ice Cream social was very nice. The sites are large. The trek down the 300 yard trail to the Eel river is STEEP, but worth it. You can swim/float, walk over to a deep swimming hole with a rope swing. We booked again. The biggest PLUS of this location is that you are camping IN THE REDWOODS. It may be a bit pricey, but there is nowhere else you are going to do this. The nearby KOA in Benbow is on a flat plain with no shade! I didn't hook up my TV, so I don't know/care if it worked. Wood prices were reasonable and the staff was great. - Heaven321

Rustic, old, in need of major renovation. Close to Hwy 101 and truck traffic. They are completing a new pub and awaiting liquor license. Most cabins and motel type accommodation buildings really showing age. One restroom/ bathhouse was closed. Satellite TV at most sites non existent. Verizon cell very week. Some large sites. Most sites are heavily shaded by tall redwood and oak trees, pretty level and more dirt than gravel. We were told we would have 50 amp but when we arrived they said none available. Water pressure good. Friendly staff. Quite a distance to any real shopping or grocery. Campground store does have basic supplies. Wifi $, no cable or over the air tv reception. I got 4 FM radio stations. Spent 3 nights. Won't stay here again. - venice

CA state park. Dry camping. Pricing varies $25 near Hwy, $35 Upper Loops and $45 across the river, summer only, tents and small campers. State Park run by a non-profit organization (MAPA). Very clean park and friendly staff. Lots of hiking trails and a swimming hole on the Eel river in the Redwoods. - slewis95407

This is my second review of this RV park. I am upgrading my rating because our most recent stay was much better than our last stay a year back. Cleanliness has been greatly improved, dumpsters have been added, and most important the staff was wonderful. The RV next to us had major mechanical problems and the staff couldn't do enough to help them.
As mentioned in my last review access off of Hwy 101 is well marked and easy. There is tons of room to get into the park and maneuver, even for the largest RV. To the left of the store/office are a dozen or so level and wide pull throughs, easy in and out.
Keep in mind that this RV park is not very fancy, there is no pool or other upscale amenities, and some full timers are scattered about. However it is 1/10th of a mile from the giant Redwoods, very reasonably priced with PA, and lots of room for your rig. We will definitely stay here again. - Syncro

The stay was basically a nightmare. The address says Garberville, but is about 8 miles south of the town. WIFI did NOT work. Was told "someone" had used all the bandwith and they could not reactivate. Was told it would be up and working the day after we arrived, but that never happened. Verizon Hotspot did not work either. Was told AT&T doesn't work at all there. We could at least make and receive calls. Was able to get the Hotspot about 5 miles south at the Piercy turnoff.
Park is next to a gas station/truck stop so a lot of noise from there and also the Hwy 101.
Grounds needed a lot of cleanup and men's bathroom close to RV parking had a sign that said the sink was broke and to use the main bathroom. A lot of older permanent rigs were parked around the grounds.
We will not return. - vwbluestar

Level sites with good utilities (30 amp), adequate camper's store, and friendly personnel. Store and office close in early evening. No personnel or service on premises after closing.
Convenient location on Hwy 1 just south of Garberville. There is a 24 convenience store next door and worthwhile tourist sites across the street in easy walking distance.
Wifi password did not work and there were no personnel or provisions to contact someone after hours. - cdouglas

Richardson Grove straddles highway 101 and contains a small but very nice old-growth redwood grove. Unfortunately they chose to build highway 101 so it runs right through the middle of the grove, cutting it in two and destroying the normal quiet of a redwood grove. It is a nice little park nonetheless and the campground is pretty good. It is a typical no-hook-up forest campground with flush toilets and water spigots around. The road is narrow but not too bad and many of the sites could handle a larger RV than our 31 ft. fifth wheel. There is decent space between sites, though most have driveways at right angles to the road, making backing in a bit tricky. There are a few pull-throughs. No dump station but there is a commercial campground nearby that has one. Our Verizon data reception was marginal but with our MiFi we got good Internet. - MrSunshine

A nice park with very nice managers. Our site was great and very quiet. We were entertained by the stellar jays and woodpeckers. Wonderful redwoods all around the area. - wildhorsecoach

It appears that all but two of the reviews below pertain to the Richardson Grove Campground and RV Park - NOT Richardson Grove State Park. They have been incorrectly posted. Therefore you may disregard the comments about the store, pool, etc. because there aren't any. Richardson Grove State Park offers a lovely camping experience in the woods. Typical for the vast majority of California state parks, there are no hookups, and there is no dump station. (You can pay to use the one at Richardson Grove Campground and RV Park.) However, there is a very nice swimming hole on the Eel River, although the beach is somewhat rocky. Just deal with it. There is plenty to do for people who actually like to be outside when they're camping. Walking among the redwood trees is an awesome experience. They have ranger programs and lectures. It gets very dark and quiet at night. We go back to this state park whenever we get the opportunity. I gave it a 9 because the sites are tight. Not tightly spaced, but tight maneuvering through the trees. - Maynard

Well, If you like access to a beach this is for you. Everything else is substandard. They have some nice sites but, they were empty the 7 days I was here. The sites are small: some that appear you should back into, you pull forward into and need a long sewer hose to hook up. Bring your dog shoes, they have bad stickers. Sites are very, very close. Below Highway 1 traffic not bad, but a few logging truck go by using their jake brakes. WIFI OK. - valtar

Stayed 3 nights in our 30' coach over a weekend in August. The camp was packed with cars and rigs everywhere. We had a pull-thru site that was very narrow, so much so that when the trailer next to us put out their awning it was 30" from our door, and we couldn't use the fire pit for fear we'd burn down the motorhome. There were LOTS of children and LOTS of dogs, so it was pretty noisy most of the time. Nice beach though, and that was the campsite's saving grace. - sail2blue

We also stayed at the sister park, Casper. It seems a little tacky to add a pay shower for such high prices to camp for the night but that's the price to pay for facilities along the coast. Great locations for both places. Camp host was responsive when we noticed a camper not picking up after his dog.
We don't have a tow vehicle. - CaptainHuck

It was a holiday weekend so the park was almost totally full. Lots of kids running around, riding bikes, etc. Our premium site was nice with grass and trees and fairly level. The adjacent site was close but not too bad. We kept our a/c and fan running through the night to drown out highway traffic noise.
The bathrooms are clean and they have security codes, which I like.
The picnic table was very nice and very clean! - Linda dlm

Price relects average over three days and a festival weekend.
Site was level. Nice patio table but no fire ring
Friendly greeting on checkin. Office/store was clean, had good assortment of supplies and snacks. Bathroom was spacious, clean. Rec room was large and very nice. CG was busy, but they had enough staff to handle it.
Asphalt interior roads, mature tree between every site give moderate shade. Ends of each row had pretty flowers and shrubs. Well kept grounds. Plenty of staff in golf carts roving around on a regular basis. They proactively asked me if I needed help - handy, and good security too.
Although I reserved online, they were nice enough to call me to let me know Reggae Festival attendees would be partying there.
Highway 101 noise is noticeable but not a deal breaker.
Seems like a destination campground with golf course, nice pool, Eel River nearby, bike riding and a towed "train" for the kids.
Verizon signal was very weak. Cable TV was good.
A bit expensive for an overnight stay but the cg is very nice for a longer stay and if you plan to use their amenities. - phann

While expensive for the area, it is close to the historic Benbow Inn which has an excellent dinning room. Clean, grassy spots. Easy on and off Hwy 101. Oh yes, a golf course too. We spent an extra day and traveled 'The Lost Coast' road. - NancN'Me

We've been full timing for 7 years now. The place wins the award for the biggest dump we've stayed at. The site was paved but very narrow. It had been raining a lot so our coach was in a lake due to poor or nonexistent drainage and we were in a huge mud hole. The rest rooms were disgusting at best and the showers have a patina of crud every where you looked and were barely warm. There are a lot of full time folks with rigs covered with tarps and garbage everywhere. They have wifi but we could get nothing from their site. Verizion and MIFI works down there. Traffic nose from 101 is pretty loud but the traffic is only moderate. We may stay here again because it's the closest place to some friends we like to visit. Even if they dropped the price down to $5/night I wouldn't recommend it. They have a dump station that had the lid open and 6" of rain water standing in the containment basin. I really surprised that the health department hasn't shut this place down. - pumper9x9

Stayed at 183 campground in the last 5 years since we retired - this has to be the worst ever.
In the 6 days we stayed there in March 2014 restrooms were not cleaned at all I took a GI shower in the MH as it was nasty. We finally moved to site with sewer but left a day early and gave up the money.
Park is full of run down Rv's that are in horrible shape. Most of the park is full time folks. Dogs running loose all over. I walked our dog out of the campground.
Good Sam rating of this campground is not to be believed. - rr2254545

We wanted a stop over spot for one night, and had a RV site and a tent site. Dean Creek is a pretty little campground right off Hwy 101. You will hear the traffic. It is an older campground that looks like it is getting some upgrades, but has a ways to go. The staff was friendly. They have a pool, spa and sauna. They have an old minature golf course that is free and was fun despite needing repairs. The sites are very close, if you have slide outs you are right over the next site's picnic table or fire pit. I was also overcharged and am waiting to see if they make it right. - seabreezervers
