This is a very old, very nice campground. It's in the middle of redwood trees and is very quiet. It has a wonderful children's play area. There's a path down to the Eel River. The sign states it's 350 yards ahead. That's probably true, but the path is very steep with quite a few switchbacks. Once you get down to the river, it's Shangri-La.
This was an OK place to stop for a couple of nights. The feeling was that this was mainly a place to "stop for the night". A fellow guest checking in before me asked about the pancake breakfast and ice cream social and I overheard the staff person say "No, we don't do anything here". I don't think they'll be receiving a KOA President's Award anytime soon.
This was a convenient place for us to stop. It was very crowded and tight. Picnic tables were available to rent, though there was really no room for one. Our saving grace was that we had a shady site. We barely had room for our slide out and couldn't use our awning at all. This park is popular probably because of its proximity to the Woodburn Company Outlet Stores. They even have their own coded gate for entry to the mall.
This is a very busy, very well run park. It was crowded, but extremely organized. Campsites were roomy and well placed for privacy. Definitely family friendly. Excellent camp hosts - firewood is delivered to your site. Bicycles seem to be the main mode of transportation. Fantastic beach is an easy one-mile walk from the campground. Very interesting historic fort site and interpretive center.
Though this would be considered a higher-end RV park, it fell short in a lot of categories. Only a small number of sites actually had ocean views. The rest of the sites were parallel to the beach, behind the sites perpendicular to the beach. When you stepped out of your unit, you were facing another unit. It was so windy, none of the guests even attempted to pull out their awnings. Nice clubhouse that looks like it used to be a home and has been modified. Three "villas" were available as rentals. They were one-bedroom trailers on a cement slab. As people buy into this "timeshare", it looks like villas will be placed on all the other slabs. Fantastic Oregon sunsets, though!
Very nice campground with beautiful trails in the redwoods. Upon checking in, we had difficulty getting our unit into the space. We asked staff for help and were promptly moved to a larger, pull through site. All staff that we encountered were extremely helpful and friendly. We even got great advice for some day trips. It was great to see the ice cream social and pancake breakfast still being offered.
This park was the perfect place to end our road trip. It's luxurious and beautiful. Gorgeous club house, outdoor pool, outdoor fireplace, two fire pits, "dancing" fountains. Our "backyard" was the Sacramento River. The park is three years old and will be outstanding once the trees mature. We were personally escorted to our site and were assisted with backing in. When I went to their store to buy ice, I was offered a ride back to my site. Trash is picked up daily by staff. Fun, organized activities. Level, clean cement pads for RVs. Pet wash area, RV wash area, modern restrooms, showers, and laundry room. We even heard an ice cream truck come in.
